Citelum, DBT, FCI, Leoni, Nexans, Sagemcom, Tyco Electronics intègrent l’Alliance fondée par Legrand, Scame et Schneider Electric, afin de promouvoir un branchement électrique haute sécurité pour l’infrastructure du Véhicule Electrique
L’EV Plug Alliance annonce ce jour l’adhésion de Citelum, DBT, FCI, Leoni, Nexans, Sagemcom et Tyco Electronics, rejoignant ainsi Legrand, Scame, Schneider Electric, Gewiss, Maréchal Electric, Radiall, Vimar, Weidmüller France et Yazaki Europe. Formée fin mars 2010 par Schneider Electric, Legrand et Scame, l’EV Plug Alliance a pour objectif de promouvoir l’usage d’une solution de branchement et d’une prise haute sécurité pour l’infrastructure de charge du Véhicule Electrique.
Ce nouvel élargissement de l’EV Plug Alliance démontre la pertinence de la solution de convergence promue par l’Alliance afin de proposer rapidement une solution standardisée pour connecter le Véhicule Electrique en Europe. Les nouveaux membres contribuent ainsi à mettre en place un écosystème avec une norme reconnue, grâce à laquelle il sera possible de développer des solutions et des applications concrètes pour révolutionner l’infrastructure de charge électrique.
Début juillet 2010, l’Alliance a conclu les essais de produits de plusieurs partenaires. L’ensemble des essais définis par le projet de norme de la CEI, CD 62196-2 en cours de finalisation, ont été couronnés de succès. Les produits soutenus par l’EV Plug Alliance sont désormais disponibles sur le marché.
Le type de branchement soutenu par l’Alliance, installé côté infrastructure de recharge, assurera la compatibilité entre les produits des différents fournisseurs. En acceptant une puissance de charge allant jusqu’à 22 kW, sur des installations mono ou triphasées, ce branchement assurera la recharge des véhicules électriques ou hybrides rechargeables. La prise offrira le plus haut niveau de sécurité, grâce à des obturateurs empêchant tout contact accidentel avec des parties sous tension, en respectant le standard de prises et de branchement en cours de finalisation par la CEI.
L’EV Plug Alliance participera au Mondial de l’Automobile de Paris, du 2 au 17 octobre 2010 (Hall 2.1, stand n° 441).
