Atlis debuts new AC/DC charge cable, handle

The cable can deliver over 1,000V/1,200 amps of current while maintaining a temperature below 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

Atlis Motor Vehicles has debuted the design of its AC/DC charge handle and charging cable, capable of delivering up to 1.5MW of power. The Atlis team says it has successfully delivered greater than 1,000 volts and more than 1,200 amps of electric current through the cable while maintaining a temperature below 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) on the surface with minimal loss of power.

Similar in size to a typical 350 kW CCS, the company says this new cable is designed to be less rigid and more malleable during handling, while delivering up to 1.5MW of power. Atlis says it plans to open this standard to its peers to enable mass adoption in the medium- and heavy-duty vehicle and e-mobility charging space.

“Atlis is well on its way to building the infrastructure needed to support the transition of contractors, craftsmen, miners, earth movers, ranchers, and others from ICE to EV,” said Mark Hanchett, Atlis Motor Vehicles’ founder and CEO. “In order to drive adoption across our intended market segment, building our own cable is the logical path forward. Cables available in the market today simply cannot deliver this amount of energy without being too heavy or overheating. The team developed a cable that maintains temperature, remains cool to the touch while charging, and designed a handle that’s user-friendly and small enough for almost anyone to maneuver. Today’s successful test brings us one step closer to realizing our vision of a 1.5MW charging network.”

Amperage, or the strength of electric current, is a defining factor in determining how quickly a vehicle can charge. Charging times that mirror the time it takes to fill a diesel tank is a key requirement for those seeking to electrify fleet trucks, municipal transportation, heavy equipment, and other commercial vehicles. The company says it believes that its cable design is a critical step in successfully implementing a network of 1.5MW charging stations needed to accelerate electrification.
