The system incorporates an all-in-one design that integrates the battery, power electronics, cooling system and charger in a compact package requiring less than two square metres (21.5 square feet) of ground space.
Each ChargePost is equipped with two charging points for ultra-fast EV charging, giving drivers more than 100 kilometres (60 miles) of range in just a few minutes (up to 300 kW DC power with one charging point and 150 kW with two charging points in use at the same time) and up to two optional 75-inch digital displays on its exterior surfaces. ChargePost has a configurable 143 or 201 kWh battery capacity.
“ChargePost delivers a new level of excellence for EV charging, combining the highest charging power with high-end quality materials and large displays in a battery-stored, all-in-one charging solution” said Thomas Speidel, CEO ADS-TEC Energy. “This solution supports the transition to electric vehicles and can accelerate the expansion of charging infrastructure throughout Europe and the US."
The new charging system is available immediately in Germany and Europe and will be available in the US soon. It combines battery-stored and boosted charging power at two charging points, including power electronics and air conditioning, in a powerful, compact, low-noise "all-in-one" system. It features plug-and-play installation at ground level, connecting directly to the existing, power-limited, low-voltage grid. ADS-TEC Energy say it is ideal for gas stations, car dealerships, transport logistics companies, office and commercial buildings, and fleet operators whose vehicles run in multiple shifts and need to charge quickly.
The configurable battery capacity of ChargePost is between 143 and 201 kW. The integrated charging cable with uncooled CCS1/CCS2 connector is at least three metres long. The user-friendly 10-inch touchscreen interface includes an easy-to-use payment terminal. It is also easy to maintain with direct access to modular functional units such as battery elements, cooling and monitors. Battery modules can be replaced individually as needed, and an intelligent control system optimises the system for ideal operation. This increases the longevity and makes the system particularly efficient.
