AeroVironment (NASDAQ:AVAV) has introduced TurboDX, the company’s next-generation Level 2 charging station for commercial, workplace, utility and residential customers.
TurboDX has been certified by Underwriters Laboratory to North American UL Standards for safety and reliability. European variants are certified to IEC standards, and Chinese configurations meet the CQC certification.
TurboDX is offered in 16- and 32-amp versions, with 15-foot or 25-foot cords. It accommodates a dual, triple or quad installation, and its modular design makes it easy to expand the number of chargers as needed.
TurboDX, which builds on AeroVironment’s popular TurboCord charging system, is an open networked solution that allows customers to choose from a variety of Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) compliant network providers. It also offers a Bluetooth-enabled non-networked mobile access control option.
TurboDX features a proprietary thermal management algorithm that allows a connected vehicle to charge during high ambient temperature conditions while continuously monitoring the charging session to ensure safe operation.
AeroVironment has begun shipping TurboDX for OEM and commercial customers. It will be available for retail purchase online beginning in the first quarter at an MSRP of $469 for the 16-amp version.
“TurboDX is loaded with advanced, user-friendly features to ensure a hassle-free, smart-charging experience,” said AeroVironment VP Ken Karklin. “TurboDX can be easily configured to address the specific needs of employers, landlords, individual homeowners and property managers who need a flexible solution.”
