HARTING’s fast charging technology is developing rapidly
HARTING’s fast charging technology celebrated its premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2016. Subsidiary HARTING Automotive is now recording lively demand. “Almost all new e-car concepts of the large OEMs use powerful fast charging in addition to conventional charging technology, to increase acceptance among drivers and achieve the breakthrough,” explains Marco Grinblats, Business Unit Manager E-Mobility at HARTING Automotive. Good news for HARTING: at the end of 2016 the company was chosen for the first time as a direct supplier to the VW group for a specific e-mobility solution. “This gave the whole business unit a powerful boost,” said Marco Grinblats, before the opening of the Geneva Motor Show.
HARTING has been manufacturing innovative e-mobility products and solutions for several years based on decades of experience in connection and transmission technology for data, signals and power.
Its subsidiary HARTING Automotive develops and produces charging equipment for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. These include mode 2 charging cables, mode 3 charging cables and DC rapid charging plugs with approvals and certificates for all specific markets and meeting legal requirements worldwide.
Kunden können dabei das Equipment nach ihren eigenen individuellen Anforderungen einsetzen, denn die HARTING Fahrzeugladekabel sind in allen drei weltweit eingesetzten Stecksystemversionen (mit den entsprechenden Zulassungen) für die gängigen AC Ladeschnittstellen erhältlich. So ist der Typ-1 Stecker für AC nach UL, CE und JET/PSE zertifiziert, der Typ-2 Stecker für AC nach UL/VDE zertifiziert. Der HARTING Stecker GB China erfüllt die CQC Norm.
HARTING Automotive is more than satisfied with its business performance to date. “The e-market is simply exploding. In China alone, over 500,000 new energy vehicles – that is to say, purely battery-driven or hybrid vehicles – were built in 2016,” explains Marco Grinblats. This requires more and more plugs, cables and charging infrastructure.
HARTING Automotive will be presenting its extensive range of E-mobility solutions at the HANNOVER MESSE (24–28 April 2017 / Hall 11 / Stand C15).
