Who is it for?
Our regular chargers are intended for average- and longer-length charging sessions for EV drivers who remain at your location. Ideal for hotel and restaurant guests or meeting participants. But of course also for day-long visitors, mall shoppers, or company staff at work.
How regular charging works
EV drivers can charge at two speeds: regular (3.7 kW) and semi-fast (22 kW). This means that vehicles can be fully charged in periods ranging from one to eight hours. Charging speed depends on factors such as the following:
- the car;
- vailable capacity.
The car. The Mitsubishi Outlander and the Volvo V60, for example, usually charge at 3.7 kW. With batteries ranging from 9 to 12 kWh, these vehicles are usually fully charged in 3 hours. The BMW i3 and the Renault Zoë charge at a semi-fast rate. With a battery of 22 kWh the Renault Zoë, for example, is fully charged in one hour.
Simultaneousness. Our AC chargers have two charging sockets, which means that two vehicles can be charged at the same time. If a single car is being charged (and is suitable), it will receive the full capacity of a maximum of 22 kW. In other words, if a single Renault Zoë is being charged, the vehicle will receive the full capacity of 22 kW and will thus be fully charged in one hour. If a second car then starts using the second charging socket on the same charger, the maximum capacity is divided between the two cars. The Renault Zoë then receives 11 KW and can be fully charged in two hours.
Available capacity. To be able to charge at a maximum of 22 kW per charger, you must have 3 × 32 amperes of electrical capacity available at each charger. If you have less electrical capacity available, charging capacity will decrease accordingly.
You can start with a single charging station. The number of charging stations can easily be increased and connected.
From charging station to charging plaza
You can start with a single charging station. The number of charging stations can easily be increased and connected so as to create a smart charging solution. In some cases, it may be better to start right away with a smart charging solution. We can help you make a choice.
