Delta has launched its next-generation 200kW Ultra Fast Charger in the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region.
The UFC200 is capable of enabling a 100km driving range with roughly 8 minutes of charging and is aimed at next-generation electric cars that support high current charging, as well as e-trucks and e-buses. It is designed to be installed on roads, parking lots, service stations, logistics companies as well as urban traffic hubs.
The fast charger has a modular power system design, remote accessibility for improved uptime service, and backend compatibility with most of the EV charging network management systems in the European market. It also integrates card payment to minimise the fragmentation of charger networks that is holding back rollout of such fast charger systems.

"Foreseeing more and more EV coming to the market with extended driving range, we have not only extended the existing product line of UFC 150kW to 200kW, but have also integrated a credit card payment solution, as well as a mechanism to adhere to Germany's Eichrecht MID-metering calibration rules, to make this product ideal for charging point operators (CPOs) and fleet charging requirements," said Vincent Lin, senior director of e-Mobility & Smart Energy Solutions business development, Delta EMEA
The fast charger supports charging voltages of up to 1000V, while the platform's modular concept enables it to scale-up to 200kW. This allows operators to optimse the capital expenditure costs of intalling a fast charger network using the same platform with different power configuration and taking the benefit of synergy on service & support. Delta says no building permits are required when scaling-up from an initial configuration to 200kW. It has also been designed to be easy to upgrade its power capability by additional rectifier modules.
The 200kW capacity of the UFC2000 fast charger can be split into two 100kW supplies to enable two EVs to be charged simultaneously via a non-liquid cooled 400A high power
