First EV chargers, targeted for long range vehicles, capable to provide an output power of 350 kW and a high voltage of 1000 V are actually built and installed by Efacec.
Efacec is already working on several projects with this high power charging solutions, namely with world-renowned brands such as carmakers and charge point network operators for a total of 44 high power units of its HV range sold until December 2016. These are intended for projects for various locations in the world, and hopes that many more will come in Europe and USA. Installations have started and will go on through 2017 and will be announced in the near future.
This range is composed of several HV products with different powers available, such as 50, 160, 175 and 350 kW, covering different needs of the market.
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.
