In-Charge Energy, a provider of turnkey commercial fleet EV infrastructure solutions, has announced its latest hardware offerings for fleet EV charging.
“A well-designed charging infrastructure can optimize an entire fleet, reducing the total cost of ownership for fleet managers while increasing reliability,” said Paul Glenney, Executive Director of Customer Success. “User-friendly charging options are critical for a smooth transition to electrified fleets, and we’re excited to produce pioneering hardware products.”
In-Charge Energy’s suite of hardware products is designed to create safer, tidier and more accessible charging areas for drivers in all types of conditions.
The DC Wall Box Pedestal is designed exclusively for the 24 kW ABB Terra DC wall box, and is aimed at fleet applications where wall mounting is not practical. It’s built to withstand extreme temperatures, provides ample nighttime lighting, operated by solar-powered batteries, and offers a choice of either CCS or CHAdeMO charging. Two cable retractors lift charging connectors off the pavement.
Th High-Powered DC Pedestal, designed exclusively for the ABB high-powered depot box, provides the same temperature resistance and nighttime lighting as the DC Wall Box Pedestal, plus a single cable retractor.
The Mobile Charge Cart is aimed at fleets with vehicles that move around often, such as dealerships that need to charge vehicles on lots and in service bays. In-Charge offers two versions, one that can hold a transformer and charging unit and one that holds only a transformer. The larger cart can also accommodate a 24 kW DC wall box or a 19.2 kW AC Level 2 charger.
In-Charge’s Cable Retractor Kit, designed exclusively for the ABB Terra 53 and Terra 54/94/124/184 families of DC fast chargers, is designed to clean up the appearance of charging hardware while making it easier for users to handle, especially in extreme weather conditions. The system, which can easily be bolted onto the Terra charger, includes one or two cable retractors to protect the charging connectors.
In-Charge Energy also has agreements to resell compatible hardware from manufacturers including ABB, Juicebar, Flo, ChargePoint, Delta and Infy.
In-Charge recently purchased a new 21,000-square-foot facility in Richmond, Virginia, which will serve as the company’s inventory warehouse and R&D hub. The large building will enable the In-Charge team to conduct integration testing with large vehicles, including semi and box trucks, as well as testing DC fast chargers and other associated hardware.
