Charging network operator and charger provider FLO has introduced the FLO Ultra, a new DC fast charger taht features two charging ports in one rugged aluminum enclosure. It provides up to 320 kW of power using dynamic power sharing.
The new charger can be configured in a variety of ways, allowing for flexible parking options for drivers and easier installation for site hosts. The FLO Ultra’s flexible and modular design accommodates charging on one or on both sides, and parallel or pull-in parking for charging.
The FLO Ultra’s illuminated canopies are designed to make it easy to locate, and state-of-charge indicators let drivers know if the charger is available for immediate use. An independent color touchscreen display for each charging port supports flexible and secure payment options.
A patent-pending motorized cable management system keeps cables off the ground, and is designed to make the cables feel lighter and easier to maneuver.
The FLO Ultra is designed to be easily serviceable, with large front and back doors and modular components for quick replacement. The FLO network enables remote monitoring for timely diagnostic and proactive action to avoid potential issues. The company’s optional FLO Performance Warranty guarantees a minimum of 98% uptime.
FLO Ultra chargers will be available starting in 2024, and will meet the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program’s (NEVI) minimum standards, including Buy America requirements.
“EV demand and sales are topping all industry expectations,” said Nathan Yang, FLO Chief Product Officer. “As new EV drivers hit the road, they will be looking for fast charging that is safe, accessible, convenient, intuitive and reliable. This is why we designed FLO Ultra—to provide the ultimate EV charging experience.”
