Fast Charging – CCS Combo

What is a Fast charger and why is called it so?

The deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) as an alternative eco-friendly transportation solution has become a promising worldwide effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel depletion. CCS Combo helps in charging the EV fast.

The introduction of “fast charging” (previously referred to as “Level 3” charging) has opened up new economic opportunities for forward-thinking businesses and policymakers.

You can charge your vehicle’s battery in minutes rather than hours by using a charging station that uses DC current at a high power level.

If you’re going on a long road trip and don’t have access to a home charging station, this is a great way to extend your driving range.

In addition to making it possible for people who can’t charge at work or at home to own an electric vehicle (EV), fast charging extends the range of EVs for people who need to travel long distances.

What is Fast Charging – CCS Combo?

Chargers for DC fast charging use CCS (Combined Charging System), one of several standards for charging plugs (and vehicle communication).

CCS is used for hooking up electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles to a DC fast charger, this is the European standard plug and socket type.

Only DC rapid charging of 50kW or more is supported by CCS charging. As a result of the Direct Current connection, your batteries will receive more power in less time.

Features of  CCS (Combined Charging System)

  • Rapid-charging electric vehicles can also make use of the CCS connector.
  • It’s easy and simple to use.
  • When charging is complete, the connector locks into the car and unlocks itself.
  • For a maximum output of 350 watts, the charger’s combined system connector is capable.
  • Within an hour, this will fully recharge most EVs (or at least get them to 80 percent).
  • Sometimes it all depends on the capability of your vehicle how fast it can charge.

Benefits of Fast Charging – CCS Combo?

  • Comfortable use due to ergonomic grip and additional rubber grip elements.
  • The right performance level for every application, from home carports to interstate service areas.
  • The temperature of the power contacts can be monitored with an integrated sensor system.
  • Following the IATF 16949 automotive standard as well as the ISO 9001 quality management system.

Which cars can use this charger?

The BMW i3, Kia e-Niro, VW e-Golf, Tesla, and Jaguar I-Pace all use CCS connectors.
