News

Kiekert has redesigned its charging-plug actuator for safer and more secure charging of electric cars.

Info

Kiekert's product expertise from decades of experience in the development of innovative locking systems and actuator technologies. The new compact and robust actuator features innovative drive technology. The higher gear ratio inside the extremely small package results in increased locking force relative to conventional gearing, guaranteeing maximum efficiency from minimum space.

The robust configuration and improved sensors ensure more precise detection of the locking pin for greater system safety. It can be unlocked using the vehicle key or a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. In the event of a power outage, the charging plug can be unlocked using a mechanical emergency release in the form of a button or lever inside the vehicle.

"The aim of a global company like Kiekert must be not simply to participate in a trend but to play a key role in shaping it. E-mobility continues to throw up many unanswered questions. When it comes to the field of locking and actuator technologies, Kiekert's charging-plug actuator is just one of our answers," said Karl Krause, Kiekert CEO.

A number of automakers have already expressed their interest in the intelligent actuator solution. Kiekert plans to put the new Kiekert charging-plug actuator into production at the end of 2019. This latest generation of charging-plug actuator is Kiekert's contribution to greater safety, security, efficiency and comfort in e-mobility and marks a further expansion of its product portfolio.
