CHAdeMO-compliant V2H System Connector
KW02 Series
Has Been Launched

CHAdeMO-compliant V2H System Connector KW02 Series has Been Launched by JAE electronics

JAE has developed the "KW02 Series" CHAdeMO protocol compliant V2H (Vehicle to Home) system connector, which is highly durable, lightweight and provides superior operability.


::Background

Recently the use of V2H system has begun; a system where utilizing the large-capacity of electric vehicles as renewable energy storage batteries to level energy demand into homes and office buildings. In addition, V2G (Vehicle to Grid) system is starting to get recognized, where energy flow is stabilized community-wide by connecting and linking electric vehicles to electric power grid systems.


Though supplying large amounts of power, this type of connection is intended to be used by the general public. Therefore, it is extremely important that the connector is designed with ease of use and safety in consideration. We have implemented our knowledge of designing connectors for high-power applications and our experience working with EV fast charge connectors to develop the KW02 series connector.


The KW02 Series uses resin for the outer shell which offers a highly robust yet lightweight configuration. The connector also has a superior operability with single action insertion/removal and a grip shape with good workability. All the features combined makes the connector easy to use with the assurance of safety and security.

*CHAdeMO is a brand name of the fast charger protocol proposed as a standard specification by the CHAdeMO Association.

*The KW02 Series is scheduled for general sales starting October 2017.
