Charging cable with control unit - temperature monitoring

In order for the car's hybrid battery to be charged safely every time, the control unit has a built-in monitoring device for the charging current.

The control unit's monitoring device ensures that the permissible charging current is automatically adjusted to take into account the safety aspect. This ensures safe operation without supervision as well as optimised charging time.


Use a charging cable recommended by Volvo in accordance with IEC 62196 and IEC 61851 that supports temperature monitoring.

Temperature fuse

Temperature monitoring is activated automatically when the car's hybrid battery starts charging. If a critical temperature is reached then the charging current is lowered. If this happens repeatedly and then charging is switched off.


If the temperature monitoring has automatically lowered the charging current repeatedly and charging has been interrupted then the cause of the overheating must be investigated and rectified.
