EV charging infrastructure continues to experience rapid growth with a significant portion being faster and higher power DC charging devices. With faster charging comes the demand for higher operational cycles for all components within the charging device. Designers and manufacturers are evaluating and improving the ruggedization of every component including controls, electronic assemblies, cables, and couplers. In particular, the coupler connector will benefit from materials which can withstand high wear cycles in exposed environments over the operational lifetime of the charging device.

This presentation will introduce and describe a new low-friction, high-wear, silver composite material for coupler connectors.
