Efacec first projects of high Power EV charging Solutions up to 350 kW, are actually starting on the ground

First world EV chargers, targeted for long range vehicles, capable to provide an output power of 350 kilowatts (kW) and a high voltage of 1000 volts (V) are actually built and installed by Efacec

Efacec is a member of CharIN e.v., who is conducting an extensive work in the evolution of the CCS standard, namely on the power increase to serve the needs of the upcoming long range EVs. To serve this new market segment, Efacec is developing a range of high power charging solutions and is already working on several projects, namely with world-renowned brands such as carmakers and charge point network operators.

 

The very first units with 350 kW were installed in November 2016, and several others are already scheduled for 2017. These first installations are located in private sites, but by July some publicly accessible installations will start, and they will be announced in proper time.  

 

These technological developments of the company on the EV charging infrastructure have reinforced Efacec's worldwide leadership in the sector.  

 

About HV175 / HV350  

At a time when the Electric Mobility in the world is exponentially growing and electric vehicles with batteries with increasing autonomy call for constant innovation and improvement of the EV charging options, Efacec Electric Mobility officially presented its range of High Power chargers for electric vehicles last October in Munich at eCarTec 2016.

 

The HV175 is a high power charging solution, able to supply up to 920 V nominal and 1000 V maximum at a maximum current of 350 A by combining two HV175 units to an user interface unit with adequate cable and connector to form the HV350.  

 

Connecting more HV175 units to a mechanical connection allows higher currents as can be used by some heavy vehicles.  

 

This HV range complements the range of EV chargers Efacec already presents, covering solutions for private, public, fast and wireless charging.
