Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. has begun selling the UL-certified high-power EV quick-charger connector assembly SEVD-11U.
The SEVD series is a line of quick-charger connector assemblies used for charging and discharging electric vehicles. Since its release in 2011, this series has been highly regarded for the superior operability, high level of safety, durability and excellent design.
Lately, as the capacity of the batteries installed in electric vehicles has been increasing, there has been a need for faster charging equipment that can accommodate more power. To satisfy this need, the Company has developed SEVD-11U, a new quick-charger connector assembly that boasts the largest capacity in CHAdeMO-specific connectors, as a new line of the SEVD series. SEVD-11U has obtained UL certification, the North American safety standard.
The Company is planning to add CE-certified models that meet EU safety standards and domestic models to this lineup.
