Fuji slims down its EV charging station
Two months after it installed a public charging station at a Residence Inn in California, Fuji’s data shows that the station has delivered nearly 2 MWh of energy, averaging five users per day.
Just in time for bikini season, Fuji Electric Corporation of America announced that it will introduce “a slimmer, sleeker version” of its 25 kW DC quick charging station, its fourth generation of DC chargers.
The UL-certified charger is compliant with CHAdeMO standards, and features heavy duty construction to ensure durability in public locations. The integration of ChargePoint allows users to locate and reserve available stations via ChargePoint’s smartphone apps. The new model will go on sale in North America in February.
“Over the past five years we have remained focused on continually improving our product to adapt to the evolving needs of EV owners and station owners,” said spokesman Larry Butkovich. “We’ve taken proven technology from our other businesses and applied them in new ways, such as the use of our ultra-reliable power supply and high-speed MOSFETs in our DC Quick Charger.”
Two months after it installed a public charging station at a Residence Inn in California, Fuji’s data shows that the station has delivered nearly 2 MWh of energy, averaging five users per day. “The success we’re seeing with the charging station at the Residence Inn has reaffirmed our belief that the development of DC Quick Charging infrastructure is critical to the long-term success of the EV industry,” said Phil Charatz, President of Fuji of America. “Fuji Electric will continue to invest heavily in R&D to manufacture products that will further enhance the EV owner’s experience and reduce the total cost of ownership for station owners.”
