Power management company Eaton has announced an addition to its EVSE product line. The DC hyper charger is designed to serve mass transit EVs such as buses, and is scalable from 250 kW to 1 MW charging rates.
Eaton’s engineers collaborated with product testing firm Intertek to devise a testing regimen for the new charger. The DC hyper charger is now ETL certified for safety, meeting UL standards 2202 and 2231.
Eaton’s DC hyper charger is already in revenue service on bus routes in several cities, and has logged over 600,000 miles to date.
“Our years of experience in developing electrical and hybrid power systems for trucks and buses helped us apply existing standards for consumer plug-in chargers to this larger and very different device,” said Product Line Manager Jon Beaver. “Pursuing these industry-recognized safety certifications for the electric vehicle hyper charger demonstrates Eaton’s dedication to providing safe, innovative and effective charging solutions that help set the stage for mass adoption of EVs in North America.”
