Delta Electronics unveils all-new ultra-fast EV Charger

Delta Electronics, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, has launched a new ultra-fast charger for EVs. The system is capable of charging as many as 4 vehicles simultaneously and complies with CCS-200A, CHAdeMO-125A, as well as Type2-63A and Type2-32A formats.

It provides output power of up to 150 kW DC and up to 65 kW AC, significantly improving charge times. For optimizing the cost of the necessary infrastructure to power all upcoming EVs with larger batteries and higher charge power capacity up to 150 kW DC, the ultra-fast charger is equipped with a dynamic power split function to avoid overinvestment in infrastructure for today’s EV demand.

"This new ultra-fast EV charging solution is a living proof of Delta’s commitment to developing innovative technologies that support mankind’s drive toward sustainability, a promise we reassured at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference," explained Jackie Chang, president, Delta EMEA. "Through our strong focus on R&D and leadership in energy efficiency, we can help mitigate climate change. Supporting EV users with ultra-fast and convenient simultaneous charging infrastructure is a pillar for the success of this nascent industry."

Prototyping and industrialization of the ultra-fast charger have been successfully completed and the first charging stations are currently being made available to local EV users in Norway and other European countries.

Several EV brands have announced the development of vehicles with significantly larger battery capacity, coming to the market within the next couple of years. The typical low power AC charging of the EVs is a good option during the comparatively long hours of parking at home during night time or at work. Long driving distances, however, would require a worldwide system that allows all EV models to recharge at rapid speed - significantly faster than what is possible with today’s standard chargers, which are typically limited to an output of 50kW or less.
