Refuel with LAPP CHARGE

Lapp Group presents innovative charging system for e-mobility

Stuttgart/Hanover, (PresseBox) - The Stuttgart-based Lapp Group will be demonstrating its power for innovation with impressive e-mobility solutions at the Hanover Fair. The big draw at the stand in Hall 11/C03 will be the Lorinser Easybird®, a car that has been converted into a hybrid vehicle by the Swabian tuning specialist, without any alterations to the engine or the gearbox. With this Easybird®, the Lapp Group shows how easy refuelling will be in the future with the LAPP CHARGE system. The innovative charging system, which was developed together with Bals Elektrotechnik GmbH from North Rhine-Westphalia, will win over customers with its ergonomic design and numerous safety features. The design and colour scheme can be adapted to the customer's needs, for instance by adding the manufacturer's logo to the vehicle. LAPP CHARGE meets the VDE standard, which was defined with input from several renowned automotive manufacturers.

In Hall 11 and in the e-mobility Hall 25/J23, Lapp will be displaying a range of charging variants that are ready for series production. A spiral cable can also be used as a connecting cable. This is halogen-free, flame-retardant, oil-resistant and suitable for use in temperatures from -40°C to 90°C. Those specifications make it perfect for use in harsh conditions. Werner Becker, CEO of Lapp Systems, part of the Lapp Group, says: "This kind of cable must function reliably in all weather conditions. In addition, it shouldn't be possible to drag it inadvertently across the ground when recharging or to damage the vehicle with it. That is why we are offering this charging system as a bespoke solution and recommending the use of special, flexible spiral cables."

The complete connector series comprises plugs and a range of different flush-mounted socket designs. In the future, additional contacts in the connectors will be used to exchange data between the vehicle and the power supply.

In addition to products for the charging infrastructure, Lapp also provides high-voltage cabling for the next generation of vehicles. These high-voltage cables are used in the vehicle interior and can be customised using different connection technologies. Lapp also has its own patented connection solution for use in this sector.

Lapp is already producing special system connections for use in the hybrid power pack of the new Mercedes-Benz S 400 BlueHYBRID. These cables and connection systems are used inside the lithium-ion batteries and meet the high demands for applications in this industry. In addition to this, Lapp is a development partner for several renowned companies who are currently working on new battery systems that will store electrical energy more effectively.
