What are the advantages of SEVD-V1?
Sumitomo Electric designed the SEVD-V1 cable stylishly after taking into account that it would be used personally. Weighing only 600 grams, this cable can be managed with one hand. The cable is provided with a failsafe mechanism to lock the connector electrically (*2), thereby preventing it from detaching from the charging terminal while the cable is carrying electric power.
- ・To attach the connector：
Press the lock button to its end. A micro switch turns on when the connector attaches completely.
- ・To detach the connector：
Press the release button twice. The connector is detached only when it is not carrying electric power.
Through a series of tests required for certification as a CHAdeMO connector, the compact, lightweight SEVD-V1 has been confirmed to exhibit superior characteristics.
In addition to the SEVD-V1 for V2H application, Sumitomo Electric developed in 2012 the SEVD-01 (to CHAdeMO specifications), a cable with a quick charger connector for charging an EV battery.
