ABB’s new AC wallbox chargers are simple but feature-rich

The Swiss electronics giant ABB offers a prodigious portfolio of charging products – its latest addition is a range of AC wallboxes that are designed to provide a simple, easy-to-install solution for homes and businesses.

The new AC wallboxes come in no less than 52 different versions. All feature a compact design (50 x 25 cm) and an all-weather enclosure for indoor and outdoor use. Different versions support 4.6 kW AC, 11 kW AC and 22 kW AC 3-phase charging.

The new chargers, available for European markets, are compatible with the industry standard Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP). They offer a range of connector types, including type 2 socket, type 2 socket with shutter and type 1 and type 2 cable. For locations where wall mounting is difficult, a range of single- and dual-mount pedestals are available.

Optional features include energy metering, load balancing, back-office integration, 3G modem, RFID and key authorization, SIM card, communication interface for smart charging, and web tools for statistics, configuration and access management.

“Charging should not be an interruption to the day, which is why we have extended our portfolio with the AC wallbox, which is simple to install and use at home or work,” said Frank Mühlon, Head of ABB’s Global Business for Electric Vehicle Charging. “Customers can now benefit from charging solutions that are connected to their building infrastructure.”
