_EMERGENCY PLUG

IMAGINE THIS…. 
An electric vehicle is involved in an accident and the automatic gearbox is still in Drive (D) or Reverse (R). A first responder won’t know if the EV is still switched-on. And the driver could still step on the accelerator and set the car in motion. Result: the EV could drive off without any warning. The effects could be devastating…

SAVING TIME…
It takes a lot of time to create a safe working environment including disabling the Electric Vehicle. Using the Emergency Plug® (Plug) this can be reduced to seconds. 

Emergency video

The Emergency Plug® (Plug) has been developed to prevent unpredictable vehicle movement by any Full or Hybrid Electric Vehicles (EVs) in an emergency situation as well as during regular maintenance. 

Even though every Plug requires different signals, our Plug simulates the different charging protocols of each EV, we are able to guarantee the Plug’s suitability for 100% of all EVs that comply with the safety protocols of the UN ECE R100 regulation. By providing continuous visual feedback from the Plug about whether the EV is still able to drive away or not, we can ensure the safety of users throughout the emergency situation or during the entire maintenance procedure. Quickly creating and maintaining a safe working environment.

  • PREVENTS AN EV FROM DRIVING AWAY UNDER ITS OWN PROPULSION
  • GIVES COLOUR FEEDBACK INDICATING THAT THE PLUG IS WORKING AND HAS CONNECTION WITH THE EV
  • NO CONTACT WITH HIGH VOLTAGE
  • ELIMINATES OR SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES THE TIME SPENT IN A DANGEROUS WORKING ENVIRONMENT!
  • UNIVERSAL, FITS IN EVERY SOCKET - WORLDWIDE
  • CAN BE PLUGGED IN AND UNPLUGGED AT ANY TIME
  • ALL ELECTRIC SYSTEMS STAY OPERATIONAL, SUCH AS WINDOWS, SEATS AND LIGHTS
  • FOR USE IN LIGHT CARS, HEAVY TRUCKS AND BUSES
  • FOR ALL FIRST RESPONDERS AND TECHNICIANS

Our local distributor can provide an annual service, carrying out several tests and calibration. Alternatively, the Plug Service Suitcase enables you to carry out your own service via our Plug portal.


FREE FIRMWARE
UPDATES AND EXTRA WARRANTY
After registering your Plug on the service portal of our website, you will receive an extra year’s warranty, giving a total of two years. This includes the possibility to update new firmware for free, if needed. Ensuring you can use your Plug for many years to come

 

_FAQ

Does the Emergency Plug® switches off the High voltage and main power?

No the Plug does not switch off the high voltage and main power, i.e. it does not ‘isolate’ the EV. This means all the electric options, such as windows. Seats, lights of the EV can still be used. 

Does the Emergency Plug® activate the parking brake of the vehicle?

Not always. The R100 regulations oblige an EV manufacturer to ensure that the EV will not drive away under its own propulsion. Each EV manufacturer is free to find a suitable solution to prevent this from happening.

Does the Emergency Plug® always change the automatic gearbox to 'park' mode?

Not always. The R100 regulations oblige an EV manufacturer to ensure that the EV will not drive away under its own propulsion. Each EV manufacturer is free to find a suitable solution to prevent this from happening.

Does the interlock system work?

An interlock (HVIL) is a safety feature of EVs that protects individuals during the assembly, repair, maintenance and operation of an EV as well as in the event of an accident. This includes when the airbags have been deployed, or if the first responder loop has been cut. 

However, even when the HVIL should have been deployed, it cannot always be relied upon it. The reasons for this are: 

  • There is no external indication that the interlock is properly activated.
  • It is a mechanical system that is prone to failures and may even become welded together during an accident.
  • There are several situations when it might not be deployed, for example if the EV is not severely damaged or the airbags have not been deployed due to mechanical failure.
  •  
What does PP and CP mean?

The Proximity Pilot (PP) pin on Plug Type 2 tells the EV the type of cable that is connected to the socket – different cable thicknesses can cope with different amounts of electrical current. On Type 1 it can be used to indicate that the plugs will be removed shortly. 

The Control Pilot (CP) pin provides bi-directional communications between the EV and the charging system. This checks the maximum amount of current that the EV is able to take at any one time.

The Plug recognises and communicates the desired PP and CP signal to activate the EV’s safety protocol. This is different for each EV. 

What does the R100 regulation mean?

If a battery can be externally charged by the user, vehicle movement by its own propulsion system shall be impossible as long as the connector of the external electric power supply is physically connected to the vehicle inlet”

The Automotive industry has developed several types of safety solutions in response to the R100 regulations. The Plug is capable of activating each safety protocol, ensuring the safety of first responders. Some EVs may activate their safety protocol when a standard charging plug is inserted. However, the user has no continuous visual confirmation of this. Moreover, this type of activation is mainly used in older EV types and is becoming less common.
