Electric Vehicle Charging System Testing

Electric Mobility for a Better Future

Widespread global concerns over environmental issues, such as resource shortages, pollution, and climate change are boosting demand for new energy fuelled vehicles. As a potential solution for modern transportation, electric vehicles are the new trend for the global automobile industry. With their growth in popularity, these vehicles will have a profound positive impact on new energy applications, transport, and society at large. This level of popularity will also create tremendous opportunities for charging systems and products manufactured by other electric vehicle-related industries.

TÜV Rheinland is a leading international third-party certification body. Besides accurately predicting the growth of this new market, our team of experts was also the first to launch testing and certification services for electric vehicle charging systems – in China and around the world. Our technical know-how can help you demonstrate the quality and safety of your products – helping you to reinforce your competitiveness in the global marketplace.

EV charging stations

Safety and high efficiency are the main topics for EV charging. As the important charging facility, the EV charging stations have been concerned by governments, the industry players and consumers in terms of their design safety, the usage safety and maintenance issues. TÜV Rheinland is able to address your concerns by providing professional testing, certification, consulting and trainings.

As the testing and certification leader in EV fields, we have been strengthening our cooperation with domestic authoritative laboratories. PAL and TÜV Rheinland handle most of the EV testing and certification business in China, and we have begun strategically cooperating with laboratory development and testing competence. Particularly, we have developed the value-added service as “one test, two certificates” for the China market. Once the testing has been passed, charging station manufacturers can be certified by PAL and TÜV Rheinland simultaneously, offering charging station manufacturers the chance for rapid market acceptance.

EV charging connectors

EV charging connectors are the most important components in the charging stations. Their reliability and quality directly affect the charging safety and even driving experiences of e-car owners. To ensure the product’s safety and quality, we perform compliance testing and certification according to domestic and international standards.

EV charging cables

EV charging cables are the future trend for renewable energy cables, and thus have become the most important products for cable manufacturers. The first ever EV charging station standard 2 Pfg1908/05.12 was drafted by TÜV Rheinland. It regulates and promotes the development of the entire EV cable industry. We are devoted to providing one-stop testing and certification services for renewable energy cables, leading the study and advancement of EV charging cable technology and offering cable manufacturers the comprehensive solutions they need to access the European and Chinese markets.

The EV cable’s European standard has been published officially, and the GB standard will be released soon. To better serve our clients, we offer a Sino-European certificate based on the three major standards (GB/T 33594-2017, 2pfg 1908 and EN 50620). Our efficient, high-quality services help you break into the Chinese and European markets.
