Sumitomo launches new connector cable assembly for EVs

TOKYO, February 8, 2021

Sumitomo Electric Industries has launched a new CHAdeMO-compatible 1 DC Quick-Charger/Discharger Connector Cable Assembly for electric vehicles (EVs), the SEVDTM-V3E. 
The new assembly maintains the high level of safety, durability, compactness and light weight of the previous model, but features a completely new design with a novel mechanism that allows the connector to be inserted to and removed from an EV in a single action, a release said.
DC charging/discharging transmits a considerably higher level of electric energy than that generated by general home appliances; thus, the equipment used for this purpose requires a higher level of safety. 
Sumitomo Electric’s compact, lightweight and easy-to-operate DC Quick-Charger/Discharger Connector Cable Assembly for EVs, the SEVDTM-V3E, complies with the international safety standard IEC62196-3 and satisfies the highly safe CHAdeMO specifications. 
The new model has adopted a mechanism that enables easy connection to an EV with a single action; you just plug it into a vehicle-side inlet.
The new design and colour better match general household articles than the previous model.
Today, the world is working towards realisation of a clean energy society. The need for EVs that do not emit carbon dioxide is expected to expand in the future. For many years, Sumitomo Electric has been working to develop connector cable assemblies for EVs. -- Tradearabia News Service
