Eaton Corp. announced that it will collaborate with Takaoka Electric Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Tokyo, to develop and launch DC Quick Chargers, a key component in the charging of electric vehicle (EV) battery packs. The collaboration will enable Eaton to provide a complete line of charging stations across residential, commercial and industrial applications in North America.

Eaton said it's working to advance the electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Burlington, Ontario, and many other communities across North America. Eaton has some expertise in other markets that use free-standing electrical charging, including truck-stop electrification, ports, marinas, recreational vehicles, government and major public-sector infrastructure.

Takaoka Electric manufactures and sells electrical equipment primarily to the Japanese market. The company offers power transformers (gas-insulated and oil-immersed), on-load tap changing transformers (gas-insulated and oil-immersed), distribution transformers, mobile transformers and mold-type transformers as well as switchgear and gas circuit breakers.
