Why do we need adapters?
There is a need for adapters because there isn't a universal connector for all types of electric vehicles and the different charging stations. With an adapter, a charging station changes into any desired outlet (230Volt or 400 Volt).
Light electrical vehicles
Light electric vehicles such as electric mopeds, motorcycles mono-wheels, Segway’s, and Renault Twizy are using a different connection like Schuko, C13 and CEE connectors. An adapter makes it possible to charge these light electrical vehicles at (public) charging stations.
Charging station instead of diesel motor
Vehicles that often use their (diesel) motor to power ancillary equipment such as cooling trucks might also benefit from an adapter.
FluxDrive's adapter Type 2->CEE5 allows a cool trainer to get power from the charging station.
Type 1 -Type 2 Conversion
With an adapter Type 1 to Type 2 you can also use a charging station that is intended for charging cars with a different type of plug (Type 1 tot Type 2 or vice versa).
The Type 2 to Type 1 adapter is often purchased when a family of different types of electric cars are used and only one charging station (for a certain type of plug) is placed at the house.
Other devices using a charging station
An adapter can also be used to connect other electric devices such as a lawn mowers, refrigerators or electric pumps to a charging station.
Different Types and standards
We offer different types of adaptors supporting the conversion between different sockets. Consideration can be given to changing a charging station into a regular power outlet such as a Schuko, CEE3 (camping plug) a CEE5. Our standard adapters can make a conversion between the following connections:
FluxDrive supports different types of adapters.
