Yazaki has teamed with the SAE J1772 Working Group to define a standard connector interface for charging batteries in the next generation of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) with standard electrical power. The group selected Yazaki’s charge coupler design proposal to develop the standard for PHEVs, which depend on electricity sourced from the utility grid to replace gasoline for improved economy and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Design features of the coupler include a compact size and crush-proof design; support of up to 70 A charge rate; and safe, touch-proof contacts. The connector was designed for more than 10,000 insertion cycles.
