As the transition to electric mobility continues, there is an increasing demand for improving the electrical performance of next generation vehicles and reducing the overall charging time. In order to optimize electrical performance, there is a focus on moving to higher voltage systems and increasing the amperage throughout the electrical system. Stäubli Electrical Connectors has developed solutions for advancing the capability of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure based on their Patented MULTILAM technology.
E-Mobility is at the heart of the transition to renewable energy, reducing CO2 footprint for every mile driven and improving quality of life for everyone. Electric and hybrid drives impose demanding requirements on connector safety, reliability, and performance; and charging infrastructure reliability and power are critical in adopting commercial and heavy-duty electric vehicles.
In electric and hybrid drive applications, every component must meet high standards for quality, reliability, performance, and compact design for onboard applications. Stäubli electrical connectors stand out for their compact design, resistance to vibration and shocks, and ensure constant electrical contact with our unique MULTILAM contact technology.
In charging infrastructure, there is an increasing demand for reliability and fast charging. This drives a significant need for standardized solutions that have a high level of safety, reliability, and performance, even under the most demanding environmental conditions. Stäubli is a leader in developing Megawatt + power level solutions for connectors that are both manual, MCS, and automated, QCC. MCS is becoming increasingly important in the roadmap for mass adoption of Commercial Electric Transportation; and the QCC has a proven track record as a solution for automating the connection sequence in mission critical environments like Ports and Mining.
