Breakthrough in e-mobility crucially depends on the duration of the charging process and user-friendly charging infrastructure. Long charge times and unwieldy, heavy-duty connectors deter car owners from switching to an e-vehicle. By using renewable energy, E-Mobility delivers maximum potential in saving CO2 and fine dust emissions. Rapid charging technology with the DC charging plug (combo) is a prerequisite for ensuring that vehicles in future are supplied with facility to charge their vehicles in minutes. Likewise, automatic charging solutions will gain in importance since handling larger charging infrastructure systems is more difficult and the space required for charging in parking garages, on fleet parking lots or in garages barely exists. For electric vehicles operated by regional transport and logistics companies, a fast DC charger will become indispensable to meet delivery times and the fleet availability demanded in the future.
As a pioneer for reliable, clean and environmentally friendly e-mobility solutions, HARTING Automotive offers tailor-made solutions and components for all relevant markets and develops and produces charging equipment for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. In addition to the number of electrical charging points and a nationwide charging infrastructure, the acceptance and success of electric vehicles will crucially depend on easy to handle, cost-saving and time-saving charging technology.
HARTING offers shows which elements this type of automatic charging solution requires: robot-assisted guidance optimally brings the DC Combo 2 connector into the vehicle’s charging socket. After the charging process, the robot pulls off the connector together with the cable and the vehicle is ready for use again after a short time. The provision of the high-power DC supply is optimally adapted to the charging assistant. The fleet operator benefits from the short charging time – and ultimately of course the customer as well, who receives the delivery. HARTING technology group can point on decades of experience in connector and connectivity solutions used in data, signals and power applications, and early recognition of increasing environmental awareness within society with respect to vehicle traffic and the resulting demands and opportunities.
HARTING manufactures charging cables assembly for e-mobility and actuators for various automotive applications. HARTING is a direct supplier to various of e-mobility solutions since 2017 to various automobile manufacturers.
