Manufacturers and visitors in Stuttgart can get an idea of all forms of electromobility and discuss new trends and possible applications of electric drivetrains. Another focus area this year was on related topics, such as components, battery and fuel cells along with the charging infrastructure.

Politics and the economy are increasingly focusing on the electrification of automobiles in the age of diesel scandals and the climate change debate. The goal is to reduce CO2 emissions and dependency on oil. Many countries have already announced the end of the internal combustion engine and will prohibit sales of such in the coming years. The electric motor is the drive concept of the future and will help make our mobility efficient and thus, sustainable, climate and environmentally friendly and resource-saving.

Certain requirements are needed for the success and final distribution of electromobility. On the one hand, you need a comprehensive charging infrastructure and improved energy storage; on the other hand, the safe and error-free functionality of all vehicle components must be ensured. VDE experts provided information about this at EVS 30 and presented our comprehensive services in these fields.

Charging cable for E-cars – Presentation by VDE expert Dieter Hanauer

VDE Expert Dieter Hanauer at the EVS30

On October 10th, VDE Expert DIeter Hanauer provided info about “Mode Charging Testing and Certification for an International Market Access” at the EVS30. Mode 2 charging cable (IC-CPD: “In-cable – control and protection device”) is used to connect an e-automobile to a conventional household power outlet. Based on this product, it was demonstrated that the VDE testing and certification institute not only verifies the safety of products through validation and certification, but also country approvals through the VDE’s international service, therefore enabling customers to access markets worldwide.
