    Charging®
  • Automatic
    and Conductive

The new standard
for automatic charging.

Easelink industrializes Matrix Charging®, the first automated conductive charging technology that has no moving parts outside of the vehicle.

It‘s stationary and it‘s scalable. Matrix Charging® has been developed to foster smart living through outstanding charging technology.

Together we can charge
the world.

Powerful. Convenient.
Durable. Smart.

Conductive fast charging.
22 kW AC, high-power DC.
99% transfer efficiency.

Park and charge.

Cars with Matrix Charging® Systems charge automatically when parked over a Matrix Charging® Pad. Connector and Pad communicate via a secure wireless connection. After a system check and an authentication process, the vehicle automatically connects to the Matrix Charging® Pad. An intelligent charging management system controls and permanently monitors the charging process.

The main
components.

  • Matrix Charging® Connector

    The Matrix Charging® Connector houses all moving parts. Because of its light weight, smart design and adaptable geometry, it can easily be retrofitted in any electric vehicle.

    Supported by gravity, the Connector performs a vertical, unidirectional movement to connect the vehicle with the Matrix Charging® Pad.

  • Matrix Charging® Pad

    The Matrix Charging® Pad can easily be mounted in any parking lot. It‘s also possible to embed the Pad in the ground creating a flat parking surface. The Pad‘s surface itself is formed by a two-dimensional matrix of hexagonal conductors.

    High-quality materials, a flat design and the absence of moving parts make the Pad very durable. It can withstand all weather influences, can be driven over without restriction and is vandalism-proof.

The revolutionary
charging experience.

Upgrading e-cars and parking lots, hence the whole experience of e-mobility, has never been so simple.

Matrix Charging® stands for a completely new approach towards e-mobility – a way of thinking beyond usual categories of battery charging while focusing on user demands: simplicity, affordability and inclusivity.

Today electric vehicle
charging is inconvenient
and counter-intuitive.

We‘re here to change that.

Technical Features

  • High
    Scalability.

    High
    Scalability.

    High scalability of parking lot charging modules is a key requirement for a wide-scale introduction of automated charging.

    To provide maximal scalability we place all moving parts inside the Matrix Charging® Connector located in the vehicle. Because of this the Matrix Charging® Pad remains simple, robust and inexpensive.

  • Conductive power
    transfer

    Conductive power
    transfer

    Conductive charging offers significant advantages compared to inductive systems such as: higher power rates, maximum efficiency, less additional weight, lower product costs and no critical magnetic fields.

    Matrix Charging® combines the power of conductive electrical connections with the convenience of inductive charging.

  • Maximal
    connectivity.

    Maximal
    connectivity.

    The future of charging will become a well-controlled interaction between vehicles and the electricity grid (V2G). Therefore, Matrix Charging® maximises connectivity time and fully supports smart charging applications.

  • Great parking
    tolerance.

    Great parking
    tolerance.

    Matrix Charging® offers a great parking tolerance which guarantees that the charging performance is not affected by the vehicle‘s parking position. Selective activation of contact pins beneath the lowered Matrix Charging® Connector compensates for parking misalignments.

  • Matrix smart
    safety.

    Matrix smart
    safety.

    Contact pins on the Pad are only activated when covered by the Connector. Electrically charged elements are not exposed to the surroundings. This ensures risk-free charging.

  • Airflow cleaning
    system.

    Airflow cleaning
    system.

    A specially developed air flow cleaning system cleans the Pad‘s surface and ensures the removal of water, dust and small stones.
