In January 2022, E-T-A Elektrotechnische Apparate GmbH joined the CharIn association. With more than 250 members from a wide range of industries, CharIn is devoted to spreading the Combined Charging System (CCS) and the Megawatt Charging System (MCS).
CharIn is committed to promoting the CCS as the charging standard for all battery-electric vehicles. CCS is a combined plug-in system for charging electric vehicles with AC and DC current. It was developed together with leading car manufacturers and is already in use in many electric vehicles. The MCS is suitable for high performance requirements - especially in the truck and bus sector.
The requirements of the CCS and the MCS for plugs and charging stations also affect the future switching and protecting elements in the high-voltage vehicle electrical systems. E-T-A is devoted to protecting lives and assets and specialises in overcurrent protection, switchgear and power distribution. The company is constantly developing new products and innovative technologies to advance a more sustainable car industry beyond the existing high-voltage solutions. E-T-A’s experts are looking forward to the lively exchange within the CharIn network.
