Schaltbau GmbH: new high-performance charging connector for industrial trucks

The LV-HPC connector system meets DIN VDE 0623-589 standards.
(PresseBox) ( München, )
The new LV-HPC (High Power Connector) charging connector made by Schaltbau meets the DIN VDE 0623-589 standards for a greater current-carrying capacity. The series is therefore suitable for state-of-the-art fast chargers such as those used with industrial trucks. A red-coded keying pin signifies operation at 120, 250 and 400 amperes for charging wet-cell batteries and serves to prevent mismating at the same time.

The latest generation of industrial truck batteries is designed to release the stored energy as slowly as possible during operation and then recharge as quickly as possible in order to minimise downtimes and cut costs. The LV-HPC series makes this high performance possible. The connectors are capable of carrying the full rated current load without exceeding the maximum allowed temperature difference. The socket contacts of these high-power connectors are capable of conducting high currents without overheating.

Charging lithium-ion batteries

The series is also well suited for use with lithium-ion batteries, which can be charged at a considerably faster rate than lead batteries. Overall, this contact system offers the following key advantages: constantly high contact pressure, high-quality solid power contacts, continuous low resistance, low contact warming and high resistance to shock and vibration.
