Relays feature enhanced short circuit testing for EV charging
Panasonic Industry has launched its latest relay, the HE-R, which has undergone enhanced short circuit testing to deliver a reliable and safe solution for customers in the EV charging industry. Rigorous testing of the relays includes IEC62955, a 10 kA short circuit test. This means that customers can now specify their 22 kW wallbox for up to 32 A at 10 kA short circuit current, providing a high level of protection for EV charging equipment.
In addition, the smaller HE-S relay now conforms to the IEC62955 standard for 3 kA short circuits. This feature allows customers to use the HE-S series for wallboxes rated at up to 16 A, offering greater flexibility in the selection of charging equipment for a wide range of applications.
“With the official VDE extensions of the HE-R and HE-S relays, we offer our customers a product that features enhanced short circuit testing,” said Bernd Jaschinski, Product Manager at Panasonic Industry. “Our customers in the EV charging industry require reliable and safe components, and both HE-R and HE-S relays meet these requirements delivering a high level of protection and flexibility.”
The HE-R and HE-S relays are now available for purchase, and Panasonic Industry is confident that they will be a popular choice for customers in the EV charging industry. With its advanced features and reliable performance, the HE series is set to become a key component in the next generation of EV charging equipment.
