ABB has added alternative current (AC) wallboxes to its portfolio of charging solutions. The company says that the systems can be installed in homes and businesses and are suited to companies that want to provide overnight charging facilities.
The products are manufactured with a robust all-weather enclosure for indoor and outdoor use and are available in different versions, offering 4.6 and 11 kW AC charging as well as 22 kW AC 3-phase charging. The chargers are fitted and maintained via ABB’s global technical support services.
A range of connector types including type two socket, type two socket with shutter and type one and type two cable are integrated into the wallboxes with the intention of improving flexibility. For locations where wall mounting is difficult, a variety of pedestals is available including one charger, two chargers back to back or two chargers in a 90-degree angle. The systems can also come with or without an energy meter, load balancing, back office integration and UMTS/3G modem.
