ABB has launched its Terra 360 all-in-one electric vehicle (EV) modular charger that can deliver 100 km of range in less than 3 min. Suitable for refuelling stations, urban charging stations, retail parking and fleet applications, the device can simultaneously charge up to four vehicles with dynamic power distribution.
The charger has a maximum output of 360 kW and is capable of fully charging any electric car in 15 min or less, meeting the needs of a variety of EV users.
Available in Europe from the end of 2021, and in the USA, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions in 2022, the charger is designed to deliver speed and convenience along with comfort, ease of use and a sense of familiarity.
Its lighting system guides the user through the charging process and shows the state of C=charge (SoC) of the EV battery and the residual time before the end of an optimal charge session. It is also wheelchair accessible and features an ergonomic cable management system that helps drivers plug in quickly with minimal effort.
As well as serving the needs of private EV drivers at fuelling stations, convenience stores and retail locations, the chargers can also be installed on an organisation’s commercial premises to charge electric fleet cars, vans and trucks. Because the chargers have a small footprint, they can be installed in small depots or parking lots where space is at a premium.
The chargers are customisable to suit branding requirements and there is also the option to include an integrated 27″ advertisement screen to play video and pictures.
