Easelink becomes a member of the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN) to support the global standardization of charging infrastructure.

Graz, Austria – Easelink GmbH, a high-tech company in the field of charging solutions for electric cars, is becoming a member of CharIN, thereby supporting its initiative for the global standardization of charging interfaces for battery-powered electric vehicles. Easelink intends to contribute in particular to the harmonization of automatic conductive charging by sharing its expertise.

With its Matrix Charging technology, Easelink has taken on a pioneering role in automatic conductive charging since 2016. An integrated connector on the vehicle undercarriage connects to the charging pad in the parking space, establishing a high-capacity, high-efficiency conductive connection. Prototypes of Matrix Charging are already in real use today.

The progress in autonomous driving and the desire for ever greater customer convenience clearly indicate the need for automatic charging infrastructure. “Successful standardization requires a technology that can equally satisfy the requirements on charging in the garage, at the workplace and in public outdoor areas,” emphasizes Hermann Stockinger, CEO and founder of Easelink.
