This connector was designed by the German distributor of connectors Mennekes. Currently is not being used on many vehicles, but the novelty is incorporated in the new Renault ZOE.

Scame connector

The Scame connector was born in 2010, is the product of an alliance called EV Plug Alliance, formed by manufacturers Scame (Italian company), Schneider Electric (from USA) and Legrand (France).

Is a type 3 plug, according to IEC. It allows up to a power of 22KW. Nowadays,  any incorporates this kind connector, but the Wall-Box of Schneider Electric will have it. Also, the cable offering has access to SAE J1772 or Mennekes.

SAE J1772 connector

SAE J1772

It was developed in the U.S. by the Society of Automotive Engineers.

It is the ultimate connector for electric cars, because they incorporate the following models:

·     Nissan Leaf
•    Chevrolet Volt
•    Fisker Karma
•    Coda Automotive sedan
•    Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid
•    Mitsubishi i MiEV
•    Honda Fit EV (concept)
•    Ford Focus Electric
•    Smart electric drive
•    Tesla Roadster
•    Tesla Model S
•    Th!nk City
•    Renault Kangoo Z.E. (230 V – 16 A max.)
•    Renault Fluence Z.E.
•    BMW ActiveE

SAE J1772 is an ordinary socket, which has the typical shots current, phase and neutral (plus ground) any phase plug. But this socket is special becausa have two plugs for increasing the communication system between the vehicle and the charging point. Furthermore, its design is thought to stop any unautorized access.

Recharging time and battery duration

Posted by admin in Recarga coche eléctrico on 26 September, 2012 with No Comments

Recharge time of electric vehicles and battery life depends on many factors, here are the most important:



Driving shape intervene significantly in battery life. Also is very important where you drive, city driving or not.


The use of other auxiliary systems such as air conditioning, heating, etc., clearly decreases the battery life.


Depending on the type of battery, technology granted a longer or shorter powerfull.


The charging time depends mainly on the level where you are and the size of the battery, which is directly related to the duration of it.

It´s  important to note that, given certain characteristics, recharge time depends on the charger and it can supply power to the car. A three-phase charger provide more energy than a single phase charger. A super fast charger current can reach 63 kW of power, aversely an average of 3 kW at our house.

Where to charge my electric vehicle

Posted by admin in Recarga coche eléctrico on 26 September, 2012 with No Comments

Your electric vehicle can be charged in any place which has a charging station, for example:

At home

You can recharge your electric vehicle at home, with a charging point in your garage, whether private or multifamily. This facility is for ordinary charge mode at night, favored by a lower cost due to time restrictions supervalle rate. Read more for installations in Multifamily or Private Garages.

In the street and public places

You can also recharge your electric vehicle on public roads while you are shopping or at work. These charging points can be found via the Internet or mobile applications. Normally, shopping centers also have free charging points may even have one installed in quick charge mode current.

Electric recharge systems

We can divide the charging types in two: quick recharge and normal one. We also can follow the internacional rules, which marks several systems:

Convencional recharge

At home

The conventional or slow recharge is intended for the domestic burden. However, much of the existing charging points in cities currently have this technology. Recharging takes about eight hours, and is intended to take place preferably at night by supervalle rate discrimination.

Quick rechage

At service station

There is confusion about what is meant by the concept of quick recharge, and no agency currently regulates this concept. Quick recharge must be taken in a station outside our house and we can recharge 70% of the battery in less than 30 minutes. The most frequently used standard connector such CHAdeMO recharge is Japanese. Recharging is done in current, and allows a current of up to 200A. Charging devices are not designed nor recommended for private garages due mainly to its high cost, for the product and the installation.

The way to charge electric cars is an evolving issue and research. It has been standardized by the different modes of loading, resulting in 4 different charging modes.

Recharge mode 1

The reload mode # 1 (or charge mode 1) is one mode of an electric vehicle load, not exclusively to the load. Stated another way, is one that is performed in a classical domestic plug, which is intended to temporarily or continuously to the charging of electric vehicles.
The system is easy as one, is to take a cable of our plug type Shucko 230 V to our vehicle. (See diagram).

Recharge mode 2

Charge mode 2, as shown in the diagram, consists of the installation of a box with a plug “Shuko” (the charging station).

In recharging mode 2, connecting the car is not performed directly as recharge mode 1, but is made through a cable in which the manufacturer has inserted a security system.

Recharge mode 3

This charging mode is mainly composed of a device called charging poit, a box mounted on the wall, with an plug exclusively for electric vehicle charging. This charging station has some protection systems and also it can incorporates LEDS to show the charge status, timer to clocking the charge, etc.

The connection to the vehicle is done by a current cable that manufacturers want to assimilate to a fuel pump.

Charge mode 4

Charge mode 4 is the way to implement the electric vehicles charging in the streets and electric stations. This mode is called the quick-charge mode, made by high intensity current.
