During the eMove360° Europe 2022, 6th International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 electric-connected-autonomous (05 to 07 October), the finalists of one of the world’s most important awards for New Mobility were announced on the evening of 05 October in Berlin. The expert jury of the eMove360° Award for Electric Mobility & Autonomous Driving had nominated the most innovative and promising submissions for mobility. In the categories Charging & Energy, Battery & Powertrain, Electronics, Mobility Concepts & Services and Autonomous Vehicle, the judges selected a total of nine companies as finalists. The category winners were honoured in a ceremony in Conference Room 1 of Hall Hub 27 at Messe Berlin and duly celebrated at the subsequent get-together with cold beer and snacks.
The winner of the Electronics category was TE Connectivity Germany GmbH: TENDUR Surface Plating Technology for High-Performance EV Charging. This approach convinced the jury:
The advantages of electric vehicles (EVs) as a sustainable means of transport are well known. However, several hurdles remain, including consumer concerns about long charging times and maintaining reliable performance over the lifetime of the vehicle. To address this, TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced the all-new TENDUR charging inlet coating technology, designed to ensure high-performance charging throughout the life of the vehicle. A goal of the automotive industry is to provide safe and reliable charging with a range of 300 kilometres in 10 minutes. This requires powerful charging stations that can transmit direct current at up to 500 amps. www.te.com
