Portuguese charger manufacturer Efacec Power Solutions recently presented several new products and upgrades to existing lines.
Efacec’s Level 2 Public Charger offers power levels from 11 kVA to 22 kVA, the ability to charge two EVs at once, smart charging features, over-the-air software updates, and optional payment terminal integration. With the latest generation, the company has made the user interface simpler and more intuitive, and has simplified maintenance access.
Efacec has extended its HV350 range of DC fast chargers. The HV350 G2’s customizable kiosk is designed to provide customers with a wide range of customization possibilities. It provides 350 kW at 500 A in continuous mode, simultaneous charging capability, smart charging features, over-the-air software updates, cybersecurity features, and remote maintenance. It is Plug and Charge-ready and ISO 15118-compliant, and the support architecture meets the requirements of Germany’s Eichrecht calibration law.
Efacec’s new QC fast-charger platform offers a modular design that allows progressive power upgrades from 60 to 120 kW and voltages up to 920 VDC. It can fast-charge 3 EVs simultaneously and/or alternated with configurable outputs. In addition to the features of the HV350 range, the QC platform supports dynamic load management. Efacec’s Load Management System (LMS) allows customers to dynamically manage the use of power stations on site using smart meters, and enables integration with CPMS/OCPP and web-based HMI.
Efacec’s R&D team has also developed a new digital charger and charging network management tool – EV Core Charging Point Management System, a digital solution designed to allow customers to manage their entire EV fleets. The OCPP-compliant system is highly customizable, and supports the integration of external systems, mobile apps, and payment/billing systems.
