Exicom Becomes a Core Member of CharIN e.V.

Exicom Tele-Systems becomes a core member of the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN e.V.), an open coalition of world-class firms from the automotive sector and associated industries aiming to support and promote the Combined Charging System (CCS) as a global standard for EV charging.

The target of the initiative is to continuously and competently advance the combined charging system (CCS) with the aim to establish this system in the global markets. This universal charging interface for electric vehicles is mature, field-tested and already a standard in the US and Europe. Through this membership, Exicom aims to foster advance standardization of CCS in other regions of the world including India.

CCS is currently the world’s only charging system that covers all charging scenarios with a single product. Drivers of any type of electric vehicle can choose between normal and fast charging as well as AC (single-phase up to three-phase) and DC (up to high power of > 350 kW) – and they only need a single system for all these options.

The CCS standard is accepted and supported by a significant number of companies from different industries. Exicom will work together with CharIN association as a team in further positioning CCS as a global standard for EV charging by advocating standardization in the field of eMobility to achieve more flexibility and security for users. Our aim is to support the rollout of the CCS and contribute actively within various dimensions of the CharIN mission.

Anant Nahata, Managing Director, Exicom said, “We are delighted to join CharIN e.V. as a strategic move as it fits very well with our strong commitment to develop fast, reliable and future proof fast charging technologies for electric vehicles. We will actively participate in the standardization and market development activities of CharIN e.V. to make this breakthrough possible. As CharIN e.V. is built by a team of experts from a wide range of fields, we look forward to share and learn from each other’s wealth of technical knowledge to further advance our wide range of internet-based charging infrastructure solutions”.

CharIN e.V. is an open coalition of major players within the electric vehicle (EV) industry aiming to support and promote the Combined Charging System (CCS) as a global standard for EV charging. Key members include world-class firms such as BMW, FCA, Ford, GM, Phoenix Contact, Porsche, Renault, Tesla among others.
