BIW EV Charging Connectors are intended for Fast Charging Applications for electrical vehicles. Most applications are industrial off road vehicles, such as airport tow tractors and push-back tractors. There are also on-road applications, where connectors are also used to charge electric busses, neighborhood electric vehicles, and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Connectors are intended for heavy duty applications, with charging currents from 30 to 450 Amperes. Some connectors are UL recognized.
