Lapp Systems has demonstrated how flexible charging an electric vehicle can be with its charging systems. The new Design charging systems from Stuttgart-based company Lapp are used in the likes of the BMWi performance models (2 Series Active Tourer, 3 Series, X5 and 7 Series). They differ from the existing Heavy Duty variant for the BMWi models (BMW i3 and BMW i8) in that they have a higher charging capacity of 22 kilowatts (as opposed to 7.4 kilowatts previously), which allows more electrical energy to flow to the batteries within an extremely short space of time.
The connectors are both lighter and sleeker, making them ideal for everyday use in the private sector. The connectors are no longer insert-moulded. Instead, they are made up of three shells, which guarantee absolute leak-tightness thanks to their screw fixation. The three-shell housing enables a wider range of design variations and contrasting colours – with dark grey and blue being used for BMW, for example. Even in the case of versions produced for other manufacturers, the designers are able to give free reign to their ideas and apply the corporate design of their company to all connector variants.
