Charge Mode 2 Cables

At Delphi Technologies, we believe that in order for hybrid and electric vehicles to become mainstream, they need to be made accessible and practical for the average consumer. That’s why we’re investing in technology to help facilitate a global charging infrastructure by offering portable electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). 

Delphi Technologies mode 2 charging cables fit directly into the charging inlet of a battery electric vehicle/plug-in hybrid vehicle (BEV/PHEV) and the existing electrical infrastructure to provide a safe alternative charging option at home or away.

The Delphi Difference
Proven in serial production at multiple major OEMs
Can be used anywhere to charge an EV via a standard household socket
Perfect for PHEV/EV, short commutes ranging 30 to 40 miles a day, and overnight charging
Portable and easy to store in a luggage compartment as a backup charging option

Proven durable EV charging cables that last

Delphi Technologies Charge Mode 2 Cables are in serial production at multiple major OEMs. Tested according to automotive Standards (LV124), our proven design offers reliability and performance that exceed well beyond compliance. The In-Cable Control- and Protection Device (IC-CPD) allows drivers to safely charge their battery-powered electric vehicle (BEV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) without the need for a dedicated circuit or EV charging station. 

Our robust design of the in-cable control (ICC) box make it not only drive over resistant* (acc. IEC 62196-1) but able to handle extreme temperatures ranging from -30°C (-22°F) to +50°C (122°F), all the way up to +70°C (158.0°F) in storage. With superior water sealing protection* of immersion in 1 meter, well beyond the 5cm standard* (IP67 High sealing performance (1 meter)), the IC-CPD is durable enough for anything nature throws at it.

And to ensure a service life that lasts just as long as the expected battery life of a vehicle, our IC-CPD is designed to last over 10,000 mating cycles- That adds up to a service life of 9 years if used 3 times a day!

Safe EV charging to protect you and your vehicle

When working on anything electrical, safety is our top priority. That’s why Delphi Technologies Charge Mode 2 Cables are fully compliant with the IEC 62752 standard and protect you and your vehicle from dangerous electrical faults that can cause damage, shock, fire, or worse.

Shock protection: When the vehicle charging inlet and grid socket are properly connected, all terminal interfaces and terminals are fully protected against contact. Type B RCD residual current detection (RCD) detects fault currents and disable the charging process.

(NA ONLY) Ground monitoring: IC-CPD measures the protective conductor resistance and stops the charging process if the measured value is too high.

Overheating protection: Dual thermal sensors in the grid plug and sensors inside the ICC box monitor temperature.

Short circuit protection: Short-circuit management capability, will the IC-CPD protects on short circuits at EV.

Overvoltage protection: IC-CPD protects EV from overvoltage.

What is Level 1 AC charging?

A charging “level” in EV terminology refers to the electric power distribution type, standards, and maximum power of a charging system as defined by SAE J1772 and internationally adopted under IEC 62196-1.

A “Level 1” AC charge pulls electrical energy from the power grid via a standard 120V household outlet and capable of supplying an average maximum of 16 A and 1.92kW. The electric vehicle’s on-board charger then converts and stores this energy for the electric motor. Depending on the vehicle, level 1 charging usually takes 12 to 24 hours to get a full charge on a fully depleted battery. 

Sometimes referred to as “trickle charging”, level 1 charging is perfect for plug-in hybrid vehicles and offers a great alternative charging option by providing a home charging station. By using existing infrastructure, electric vehicle owners save on installation costs while still being able to fully charge their battery overnight. And because the charger is portable, it can easily be stored in any EV luggage compartment, making it perfect for short commutes, overnight charging, or an emergency charge. 


What is mode 2 EV charging?

A charging “mode” in EV terminology refers to the mode of power delivery, control, and protective equipment of a charging system as defined by IEC 61851-1, the international standard for electric vehicle conductive charging systems. 

“Mode 2" uses a cable incorporated with a protection device to connect the electric vehicle to a household socket outlets.

Our cables use In-Cable Control- and Protection Device (IC-CPD) to provide a standard grounded power connection to residential building sockets from 100 V to 240 V 50/60 Hz (depending on the model variant) and a charging current of 6 A up to 16 A.

An alternative EV charging option for peace of mind

For drivers that suffer range anxiety- the fear that a vehicle has insufficient range to reach its destination- having a Charge Mode 2 cable available on hand can offer some peace of mind. It also ensures that your vehicle will be charged and ready for use when needed with automatic reset.

Our built-in Auto-Reset feature provides a restart in the event of a temporary power grid fault, such as excessive voltage or a brownout. The charging dock will automatically clear any error codes when the cause of the temporary error condition returns to normal and then attempt to restart the charge.
