EV Charger Installation

Electric vehicles, known as EVs, include an in-vehicle charger that changes the electricity from standard household alternating current to the direct current needed to charge the vehicle's batteries. Simply put, an Alternating Current Charger is like a smart switch that tells an electric vehicle how much power it may use based on the amperage of the outlet or electrical system. After all of the necessary checks have been made, the switch will be thrown, allowing AC power to be supplied to the Electric Vehicle. Onboard chargers typically top out at 11kW in terms of charging speed. The most popular and economical way to charge an electric vehicle is with an AC charger. DC chargers, sometimes known as "superchargers," provide the quickest charging time.


Supercharger Charging Stations

Since the AC to DC converter is housed in the charging station, the technology is more challenging and costly than AC charging technology. Although large DC charging stations can provide up to 350 kW of power, electric vehicles are normally only able to accept a charge rate of 50 kW to 100 kW. DC Charge stations and electrical infrastructure are mostly used for public charging along interstates and at rapid charging stations. With that being said, it is possible to install DC charging stations at residential and commercial properties, depending on your individual needs.


When comparing a tethered and socketed charging station, what are the key differences?

Tethered charging stations typically come along with a lengthy cable and either a Type 1 or Type 2 connector, depending on your preference. Even though most modern EVs have a Type 2 connector standard, it's best to double-check before installing a permanent charging station. A socketed charge point, also known as a dedicated charging station, is distinct in that it does not require a cable to function. All electric vehicles that use quick-charging cables can use these, making them truly widely available.


3 Phase Charging Station

Most homes and small businesses are powered by single-phase alternating current, which has three wires: live, neutral, and ground. At 7.4 kilowatts, it is the fastest charging option for electric vehicles at home or at the office. Most commercial and industrial buildings, as well as many farms and large residences, require a more powerful and efficient three-phase alternating current. It has five wires: three Live, one Neutral, and one Earth or ground. The maximum power output of a 3-Phase charging station is 22 kW, yet the vast majority of electric vehicles can only handle 11 kW 3-phase charging. Several from the first generation do not work with three-phase chargers. This is why it is so important for you to do a full assessment before we install any charging station at your property.
