ABB has launched a 180kW version of its fast charger for electric vehicles.
With a footprint under 0.5m2 the Terra 184 has the most compact fast charger with the highest power density on the market, says ABB. This is the same as the 50kW Terra 54, but the higher power rating can charge up to three vehicles simultaneously (two DC fast charging and one AC). While the system is aimed at urban roll outs, including homes, it can be used with vehicles of all sizes, from the latest private cars to buses or trucks. A key element for this is having long cable lengths, and the fast charger supports cables up to 8m to connect to commercial vehicles.
“Over the last decade, ABB has laid the foundation for the future of sustainable transportation. With our latest extension to the Terra range, we have delivered against the demands of today and tomorrow, both in terms of the needs of urban areas and of the electric vehicles which frequent their roads,” said Frank Muehlon, Head of ABB’s global business for E-mobility Infrastructure Solutions.
The Terra 184 supports all the charging standards on the market, including CCS, CHAdeMO and AC, and caters to the needs of all batteries up to 920V. It is highly configurable with features including customized credit card payment terminal, screen and cables.
ABB has sold more than 14,000 DC fast charger systems across more than 80 countries.
The Terra 184 will be available direct from ABB and via selected ABB distributors in Europe from July, North America from August and the rest of the world by the fourth quarter of this year.
