All new cars registered in the EU need to be zero emission by 2035 in order to reach the targets negotiated under European climate regulations. A reliable charging infrastructure needs to be in place by that time, to cover long-distance journeys. Consequently the EU has issued a Regulation to the effect that charging stations must be installed along major European motorways: at regular intervals of a maximum of 60 km.*1
Infrastructure solutions based on rapid charging during a journey will not be enough to enable EV travel to be straightforwardly and conveniently integrated into everyday life in the future. Shopping breaks, fitness centre visits or just working hours are all windows for EV owners to charge up their vehicles, especially if they don’t have a wall box of their own at home.
A solution for each point of use
With the BELATRON modular T2 charging systems, BENNING has covered the entire bandwidth of e-mobility applications, starting from:
- Wall-boxes of 30 / 60 kW DC (with an option of 22 kW AC), ideal for use at home or in company car parks,
- Using 180 kW DC charging stands (with an option of 22 kW AC), typically for use in car parks provided for customers of hotels and restaurants, or in shopping centre car parks,
- Up to and including split systems: 480 kW DC (with an option of 22 kW AC) e.g. for quick charging at motorway services/rest areas.
Smart charging systems combine the maximum of safety and energy efficiency with a flexible component concept. They are quick to install and straightforward to maintain, during their service life.
Versatile configuration; high efficiency
The flexible component concept in this design series provides for a wide range of options. Depending on preference, you can select a range of different installation variants, output characteristics and charging connectors, such as CCS2, CHAdeMO and the option of AC type 2. Furthermore, these charging stations support Universal Open Charge Point Protocol 1.6 enabling them to communicate across the whole range of vehicle manufacturers, together with charging & management systems.
All of the systems are based on the same 30 kW output module. This module is designed for a voltage range of up to 1000 V and ensures a constant charge rate. It operates with high efficiency, giving up to 96 % efficiency.
High availability through redundancy
As a rule, BELATRON modular T2 charging systems are configured with output upwards of 60 kW in a modular design with redundant characteristics. Consequently, even if one output section fails, they can still be operated (albeit at a reduced charging power) by relying on the remaining 30 kW output module until such time as the unit can be repaired.
User-friendly, safe operation
The charging stations’ controls are user-friendly – with a 7-inch touch screen panel. The logical layout of the controls, catering to the user’s needs, gives a clear, precise, easy-to-understand display of all of the required charging parameters and settings. Charging procedures can be initiated with parameter-controlled RFID cards (e.g. employee cards or customer cards).
”Irrespective of whether our customers intend to install one single individual charging station or a quick-charge fleet of equipment, we have all the products & services needed for their e-mobility solution.”
