The OBC42 from innolectric AG is an On-Board Charger that has been designed for AC and DC charging in electric vehicles (EVs). It requires an AC input voltage of 120 – 240 V (single-phase) and 380-480 V (three-phase), and an input current of 32 A. This charger provides a DC output voltage of 220 – 510 V and an output current of up to 65 A. It transfers a high quantity of energy within a timeframe, allowing for faster charging and reduced downtime. This onboard charger ensures efficient and reliable power delivery as the charging current flows directly to the EV battery through a contactor. It utilizes PLC-type communication, ensuring a quick and safe charging experience. This charger automatically determines the maximum charging power to optimize the charging process for optimal performance and efficiency. It enables full control of the locking actuator, providing secure and reliable charging connections for enhanced convenience, and integrates I/Os for LED (RGB) and DC contactors, allowing for customization and integration with diverse systems.
This onboard charger incorporates intrinsic safety measures to safeguard against high voltage, current, temperature, and discharge issues, thereby resulting in enhanced user and vehicle protection. It offers the option to connect multiple units in parallel, enabling an optional power increase for those seeking relatively faster charging speeds. It is available in a module that measures 570 x 370 x 115 mm and is ideal for electric powertrains, charging processes for electric vehicles (cars, trucks, commercial, or construction vehicles), and energy storage applications.
