LV320/400, LV160/250, LV80/120 – Charging connectors

High Power Connectors for faster charging of industrial trucks

LV80/120-HPC Series
LV160/250 Series
LV320/400 Series

Schaltbau LV series connectors meet the requirements of charging connectors featuring a higher current-carrying capacity in compliance with the EN 1175 and DIN VDE 0623-589 standards.

They are available with the option, as patented by Schaltbau, for batteries featuring a commercial electrolyte circulation system and meet all current demands of manufacturers and users of modern battery-powered machines and systems, such as materials handling and lifting vehicles, vehicle batteries, battery chargers, and backup systems of uninterruptible power supplies.

A red keying plug is used for charging wet batteries with 120 A, 250 A and 380 A, respectively and prevents mismating of the connector effectively.

The high power connectors are, therefore, ideally suited for modern fast chargers as used for industrial trucks, thus catering to the intersts of the material handling industry which aims at shortening the times for
charging the vehicle battery. Charging faster means reducing downtime and saving costs.


  • Higher current-carrying capacity to DIN VDE 0623-589:
    • 120 A
    • 250 A
    • 380 A
  • High-quality, solid power contacts
  • High resistance to acids and extremes of temperature
  • Option for electrolyte circulation systems
  • Modular design
  • Integrated interlocking
  • Keying to DIN VDE 0623-589 for 120 A
  • Intermateable with connectors to DIN VDE 0623-589 of other manufacturers
  • UL/CSA-listed, File No. E242089

By selecting this option you finish the configuration.
