USB charging technology – well equipped for the future

Be one of the first to provide reliable charging points using future-proof USB-C technology. As a German manufacturer, EHMANN offers you three different USB-C chargers in the three most common power classes for flush-mounted installation: Professional (65 W), Combi (45 W) and Comfort (18 W). The USB-C chargers impress with their fast and dynamic charging. They are also compatible with 55 switch programmes from well-known manufacturers.

The range is complemented by professional charging solutions that we develop customised for your facility. Thanks to Plug & Play technology, installation is very simple and even possible without a qualified electrician. You can rely on 40 years of experience and a DIN ISO 9001 and VDE-certified production facility in southern Germany.

Did you already know? Soon all small devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and wearables will have to be equipped with USB-C connections. This has been decided across the EU. Read the full article here, for example: “EU parliament and EU states have agreed on USB-C as the standard charging socket.”


Advantages at a glance

  • USB-C and USB-C/USB-A flush-mounted charger with fast charging function (Power Delivery)
  • USB-C as the new standard for electronic devices: laptops can also be operated and charged directly with the USB chargers (15/45 W or 65 W)
  • Special USB charger protection mechanisms protect devices from the effects of voltage fluctuations
  • All USB chargers are compatible with 55 switch programmes, e.g. from Busch Balance SI or the Standard 55 from Gira
  • USB charger as the basis for professional charging options without cable chaos and tripping hazards
  • Solutions with state-of-the-art charging technology with earthed sockets and future-proof USB-C chargers for tablets and laptops (65 W Power Delivery)
  • Development and production in a DIN ISO 9001 and VDE-certified production facility
  • 40 years of experience and a high understanding of quality and safety from Germany

Useful information

In the world of charging connections, as in the digital world, things are moving at breakneck speed. As more and more demands are also being placed on the plugs and cables, there are already different generations of USB-C cables.

It all started with the 2.0 generation and we are now at USB 4.0.

The data transfer rate is currently 40 Gbit/s. There is also the option of supplying power (Power Delivery) to devices (USB-PD). This means that theoretically up to 100 watts can be charged. For comparison: a USB 3.0 cable has a maximum charging power of just 4.5 watts and a data transfer rate of 10-20 Gbit/s, depending on the version.

All devices equipped with a USB-C connection can be charged with our USB-C flush-mounted sockets. Here it is important that the cable can also provide the corresponding charging power that is in the flush-mounted socket (varies depending on the version).

The 65.00 version can therefore be used to charge laptops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones and wearables (smartwatches and headphones). Simply insert the USB plug into the USB-C socket and charge and work at the same time. A charger is no longer necessary.

USB-PD is the additional Power Delivery function that this plug/socket offers. This is sometimes also referred to as Quick Charge.

With this type of power supply, the charging unit (e.g. T65.00) and end device (e.g. smartphone) can communicate with each other and change the voltage depending on the device. This ensures that laptops can also be charged with such a combination.

It stands for fast, intelligent charging with a higher wattage, adapted to the voltage required by the object to be charged. This means that the right power is always provided.

The EU Parliament has decided that manufacturers of electrical appliances must equip their charging cables with USB-C from 2024. Background: The standardisation is intended to reduce electronic waste. In the past, there were a large number of different plugs such as USB type A, B and C, USB Mini, USB Micro, USB 3.0 Micro and Lightning (from Apple) – an incredible number of connections for the same purpose: charging.

From 2024 onwards, this law will not only extend from smartphones to tablets and digital cameras, but will also apply to laptops in 2026.

A USB-C flush-mounted socket is recommended for reliable charging in the future in newly built homes or even in the good old four walls.
In addition, smartphones are already only supplied with a cable (and without a corresponding power supply unit / charger). A direct connection to USB-C is therefore unavoidable… and still offers a tidy picture thanks to the lack of power supply units.

Because USB-C is not the same as USB-C.

The port may say USB-C on it, but what is important is what the electronics inside say. If the electronics are not designed for USB-C Power Delivery, the best Power Delivery cable is useless. So what’s important is what’s on the back – and of course the cable. Do you want to use 65 watts of charging power? Then both the technology installed in the wall or car and the connection cable must be able to deliver this level of power.

Why not try it out with our 6500×0000! All options are open to you here.

A USB-A charging socket does not provide the necessary power (max. 12 watts) to charge devices according to the specified power specifications. A laptop, for example, cannot be charged via USB-A. A mobile phone (with mains adapter) may still be charged using the fast charging function, but if the USB-A plug is inserted directly into the USB-A socket in the wall, the fast charging function can usually no longer be supported.
