Recently, foreign media reported that the current electric vehicle charger interface in the market is generally vulnerable to contact because of material problems. In addition to frequent replacement, it also causes certain risks to safety.A leading us nano-electroplating company, Xtalic, has announced a new technology that could help extend the life of a charger's interface by 40 times using nano-scale metal alloys and coatings.
Tom Clay, Xtalic's chief executive, said: "with the increasing demand for public charging facilities for electric vehicles, it is more important for the charger port to cope with damage resistance and high safety.At the moment, extending the chargers' contact life has become an important issue for electric car makers.Xtalic will extend the service life of the charger's interface through nano-alloy technology, the message said.
At present, the traditional connection head contact is made of silver-nickel-copper material structure, which is covered successively. After charging for 250 times, obvious loss will occur.Xtalic replaces the original structure with its nano-alloy material, which enhances the hardness, durability and corrosion resistance of the joint.According to the test results, the new material technology can enable the charger interface to be recharged up to 10,000 times.
In addition, the new material technology also ensures that the charger interface can maintain a stable state at both high and low temperatures.At the same time, Xtalic is also working on the use of nano-aluminum alloy technology to help electric vehicles achieve lightweight, thus improving battery life and performance.Currently, Xtalic products will appear in the next generation of pure electric vehicles.
