The INTERFLOW DC Fast Charging Interface
DC charging made easy
For the greatest possible flexibility of a battery electric construction machine or vehicle, it must be able to be charged quickly to minimize downtime. For this purpose, the INTERFLOW DC Fast Charge Interface or DC Fast Charge Junction Box is the perfect solution, enabling the vehicle or machine to be charged quickly via the CCS 2.0 interface, handling communication between chargers, monitoring the charging process and guaranteeing safety. Compared to alternating current (AC) charging by means of, for example, site power and internally installed chargers, direct current (DC) charging with external charger allows significantly higher performance and therefore shorter charging time. The INTERFLOW DC fast charging interface is designed to withstand the rigors of the working day and features a rugged aluminum housing, sturdy full metal cable glands and high quality internal components. Each product is carefully manufactured in-house and undergoes a thorough testing process to ensure reliable and safe operation. The optional Charge Control L controller of the INTERFLOW500 allows charging according to the latest industry standards, enables customer-specific configurations and communicates with both the charging station and the vehicle controller via CAN bus.
The INTERFLOW DC fast charging interface is available in two power levels for different vehicle or machine sizes, each with voltage up to 800 V. If an additional high voltage distribution unit such as the FUSION
is required, the INTERFUSION800M can be used for this purpose as a combined fast charging and distribution module.
The charging process is continuously monitored by means of precise, galvanically isolated current and voltage meters as well as temperature sensors on the connector and in the housing, which throttle the charging power if the temperature limit is exceeded. Furthermore, the INTERFLOW is integrated into the machine-wide interlock system with the interlock switch. When a component of the high-voltage system is opened, the interlock system trips and activates the battery contactors, which disconnect the machine from the power source. The enclosure can be grounded at the grounding stud and is also connected to the conductive cable sheathing of the input and output cables by means of the EMC cable glands to intercept and ground electromagnetic interference.
