New Electric Vehicle (EV) DC Quick Chargers
Product Announcement from Fuji Electric Corp. of America
Fuji Electric's new FRC Series of Quick Chargers for Electric Vehicles offers the ability to charge a 25 kWh electric vehicle battery in about 60 minutes. With DC Quick Chargers, drivers of electric vehicles will be able to keep their cars topped off at destinations and ensure that they can complete a full day of activities without fear of running out of range. Drivers will be able to return home and have enough charge remaining to cover unplanned and emergency travel.
The systems feature the CHAdeMO interface for compatibility with currently available electric vehicles. Level 3 Electric Vehicle charging allows for quickly charging the vehicle battery directly, bypassing the vehicle on-board charger. This arrangement is faster and more efficient than high voltage AC charging, which typically takes up to 8 hours.
Fuji Electric recognizes that helping to develop the charging infrastructure is a critical step towards mass adoption of electric vehicles in the USA. In response to the growing concern over utility costs and demand charges associated with 50kW chargers, Fuji Electric will initially focus on targeting...
- Retail owners
- Fleet managers
- Local municipalities
...with its 25kW DC Quick Chargers.
The UL-rated chargers are compliant with CHAdeMO standards, meeting all market requirements and specifications for both small and large-scale installations, and will be available beginning this summer.
