ITT’s Cannon brand has signed an extended contract with Portugal-based charger manufacturer Efacec Electric Mobility. The two companies have a long-standing partnership, and now Efacec plans to use Cannon’s High-Power Charging (HPC) solution, comprised of a connector, cable and cooling unit, to power highway charging stations in the US and Europe.
Cannon’s liquid-cooled DC charging technology delivers 350 kW of power. It uses a dielectric cooling liquid that runs from the cable throughout the connector’s contact system. Cannon says its dielectric fluid is extremely safe with minimal environmental impact, and that the weight-optimized cable design and minimized cable diameter make it ergonomic, light and easy to use. The charger is available in CCS1 and CCS2 variants for North American and European markets.
Cannon and Efacec are also currently testing a 500 kW solution.
“As greater adoption of electric vehicles accelerates, so does the need for fast, efficient and easy-to-use charging solutions,” said Pedro Silva, Managing Director of Efacec. “We needed a connector and cable solution flexible and lightweight enough for anyone to use, with outstanding heat dissipation that leads to minimal temperature increase. We chose ITT Cannon’s HPC solution because of its superior ergonomic design and performance.”
