Stäubli contributes to CharIN’s charging technology standard

As a specialist for advanced electrical connection solutions Stäubli joins CharIn. With its Automated Connection Device (ACD) Stäubli has a proven track record in charging and connection applications for electrical vehicles.

In the field of electrical power transportation and distribution (PTD) Stäubli has been serving this industry for many decades. Subsequently, the acquired knowledge has systematically been used for the development of solutions to meet the requirements and needs of Transportation Electrification. Stäubli successfully implemented its Quick Charging Connector as an Automated Connection Device (ACD) for electric public transport in e-bus networks and ferries, and for commercial vehicles such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in harbor logistics around the world.


Stäubli charging and connection solution

The ACD developed by Stäubli complies to SAE J3105-3 and stands out for its long service lifetime as it is designed for high numbers of mating cycles, features a fully enclosed design to protect the contact elements and ensures low maintenance. The high level of safety is guaranteed by a completely touch-protected and waterproof design. This electrical connection solution transfers a high amount of power allowing for several hours of continuous operation after only a short charging time. As the connection solution is applied for automated operation an advanced angular and positioning misalignment compensation is integrated.
