MES Expo 2019: User-friendly, safe and intelligent charging systems

Private individuals and car rental companies, hotels and shops, fleet and car park operators, businesses and municipal authorities – each of these target groups imposes its own particular demands on charging systems for electric vehicles. This presents developers and manufacturers with some wide-ranging challenges, which will be featured for the first time from 5 to 7 November 2019 at the Mobility Electronics Suppliers Expo on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.


This new trade fair is aimed at suppliers of electronics for the mobility sector and provides a new platform for companies in the automotive, commercial vehicle and railway industries. In addition to meeting their communication requirements they can also stage presentations and exchange information here. The electronics sector is, after all, the main source of innovation in the field of electro-mobility. Electronics suppliers provide the industrial basis for continued development and innovation in these areas.

Charging systems and components represent a major segment at the Mobility Electronics Suppliers Expo. Effective solutions for particular customers and vehicles are needed in the case of inlets, charging plugs and connections, which must all comply with domestic and international specifications. Although the Type 2 plug is now well established in Europe it is by no means mandatory. A variety of systems is in use, especially for charging plugs, due to the diverse power supply systems and standards in different countries. Buyers of new electric cars in Europe are generally provided with a Type 2 charging plug, which has been developed by the German company MENNEKES. For such leading suppliers of the full range of complex charging systems the MES Expo is the ideal platform for presenting this subject matter to an international audience.


Other highly topical subjects featured at the MES Expo will include driverless vehicles, electrified powertrains, digitalisation and vehicle connectivity. A number of Dialogue Forums dealing with these subjects are being held at the instigation of the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI) and the German Railway Industry Association (VDB).
