In-Vehicle Smart Charging Modules

With the exploding growth of infotainment, automobiles are designed with multiple USB chargers, which can add to manufacturing costs. Molex offers an off-the-shelf USB charger that is standard for many transportation vehicle applications. This single charger eliminates tooling and engineering support, reducing overall costs Molex designs custom in-vehicle smart chargers that follow a deviceís profile and provide the maximum power allowed by the device manufacturer, ensuring fast and effective charging.

To protect from improper charging, smart phones and tablets are designed to allow a minimum current when plugged into in-vehicle USB ports that arenít smart chargers. As a result, a device uses more power than it receives when a driver charges it while playing music or getting directions. Molex designs custom in-vehicle smart chargers that follow a deviceís profile and provide the maximum power allowed by the device manufacturer, ensuring fast and effective charging.

Possible shorts and overcurrent conditions created by electrical events in automobiles can damage devices that are plugged into in-vehicle chargers. Molex Custom In-Vehicle Smart Charging Modules have protective circuitry built in to protect devices from shorts and overcurrent conditions.
