The first NACS charging cables will be available by the end of 2024, with the range gradually expanding thereafter.
“Great news everyone! We will soon have an NACS solution!” posted Luis Leal, Business Development Manager – eMobility at Phoenix Contact Canada, on LinkedIn.
As pioneers in fast-charging technology, the company aims to meet the evolving requirements of its customers.
Therefore, Phoenix Contact will offer a high-performance NACS charging technology with the usual superior quality of Phoenix Contact, meeting high standards in terms of safety, robustness, functionality, and design.
It’s worth mentioning that the company announced on its website the availability of AC charging cables for 50 A and 80 A, as well as DC charging cables for 200 A.
CC charging cables for higher currents, including liquid-cooled ones, will be available in 2025.
Simultaneously, Phoenix Contact is developing custom charging ports for vehicles for automobile manufacturers.
Universal charging ports for commercial vehicles, among others, will be available in various power classes starting in 2026.
Finally, it’s important to note that the NACS involves Tesla’s patented charging connector, installed in North American models and Tesla Superchargers and Wallboxes there.
Tesla introduced the design of its connector in November 2022, referring to it as the “North American Charging Standard,” although it wasn’t officially recognized as an industrial standard at that time.
After completing the standardization process, the SAE recognized NACS as a standard.
