InCharge Energy, a provider of turnkey charging solutions for commercial fleets (see the company profile in our March/April 2020 issue), has launched a new DC fast charger. The new ICE-180 is aimed at auto dealers, commercial fleet charging and parking applications where DC charging is needed in a minimal space.
The ICE-180 is compatible with both CCS and CHAdeMO standards. It features a scalable architecture, allowing an output of 60, 120 or 180 kW of power depending on the customer’s specific needs, in the same footprint. There are five charging modes: Auto, Time, Quantity, Energy and SOC.
Features include: power sharing between two charging ports; a tempered glass touchscreen with LCD display; user-friendly access management with PIN and RFID inputs; and interoperability across backend platforms via open charge point protocol (OCPP).
For InCharge customers who use the company’s fleet-focused In-Control OCPP software platform, the ICE-180 easily connects with In-Control to automate the process of collecting EV charging data.
“After an extended beta testing period and successful installations with a few of our trusted partners, we’re excited to share our newest hardware product with the fleet community,” said Cliff Fietzek, CTO of InCharge Energy. “We’re working to solve many of the technology challenges experienced by commercial electric vehicle fleets, and our new ICE-180 with power sharing offers solutions to those roadblocks identified in our fleet infrastructure programs.”
