The new standard
for automated charging.
We believe that decarbonization of transport can only happen with the mass adoption of electric cars, but ease of use is critical for accomplishing this goal. Automated charging can make a tremendous contribution here, which is why we created the automated Matrix Charging® technology. Matrix Charging® meets the needs of the entire ecosystem and sets the new standard for connecting cars to the grid.
Both the automotive components and the infrastructure elements are designed for scaling up. Our vision is to see Matrix Charging® in every car and rolled out everywhere - creating a dense and highly convenient charging network.
Easelink is a high-tech company dedicated to facilitating e-mobility at scale.
Shaping mobility by charging at any stop.
Park and charge.
The Matrix Charging® system covers a Connector, vehicle unit, and a Pad, infrastructure unit. When vehicles equipped with Matrix Charging® park over a Matrix Charging® Pad, the Matrix Charging® Connector from the vehicles underbody is automatically lowered onto the Pad and the vehicle is charging fully autonomously. Connector and Pad communicate via a secure wireless connection. An intelligent charging management system controls and permanently monitors the charging process.
Matrix Charging® Connector
The Matrix Charging® Connector is the vehicle unit which performs a vertical unidirectional movement to connect with the Pad for starting the charging process.
Because of its light weight, smart design and adaptable geometry, it can easily be retrofitted in any electric vehicle.
Matrix Charging® Pad
The Matrix Charging® Pad can be installed at any parking lot. It can be placed anywhere whether outdoor embedded flush in the parking ground nor placed on top in the private garage. The Pad’s surface itself is formed by a two-dimensional matrix of pin 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.

Upgrading e-cars and parking lots, hence the whole experience of e-mobility, has never been so simple. Rolling out charging points in densely populated cities is extremely simple with Matrix Charging®. The Matrix Charging Pad can be placed anywhere, is easy to install at existing parking spaces and extremely robust. 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
We‘re here to change that.
High scalability of parking lot charging modules is a key requirement for a wide-scale introduction of automated charging.
To provide maximal scalability we rely on a static and resilient device at the parking space, the Matrix Charging® Pad, which is simple, robust and inexpensive.
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.
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.
A guided vehicle positioning is started as soon the next Matrix Charging® Pad is detected of a vehicle. As soon as the vehicle is parked above the Pad, the Connector from the vehicle is automatically lowered for charging. Selective activation of contact pins on the Matrix Charging® Pad compensate parking misalignments.
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.
The integrated cleaning system ensures a reliable electrical connection even under heavily soiled conditions especially outdoor. With the help of an integrated fan and cleaning slats on the Connector interface the Pad can be cleaned of various impurities (dirt, salt, leaves, raindrops, etc.) before the charging process starts.
