New Three-Phase Unit Retains SAE-J1772 Communications Protocol,
Allows Customers Flexibility to Charge When Utility Rates Are Lowest
ClipperCreek is taking the occasion of this week’s ACT Expo in Washington to introduce the CS-100-3P, a 30-kilowatt, 80-amp, three-phase electric vehicle charger. “This technology represents the highest power EV charging station available for commercial trucking applications,” the company says. updated (with new photo) July 1
“We saw a need for higher power charging to help expand the fleet and allow our customers to minimize their utility cost,” ClipperCreek president Dave Packard says in a release.
“This innovative durable high power unit will do just that.”
The three-phase EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) unit exceeds the SAE J1772 standard power range, but retains the J1772 communications protocol to allow customers to adjust supply current ratings to meet their specific needs. “This industry-leading station will help expand commercial truck fleets as opportunity charging can now take place in a fraction of the time,” ClipperCreek says.
No Longer Forced onto Peak Times
“We determined that higher power charging could actually help with the impact on the utility bill by increasing the flexibility of our customers as to when they charge instead of having to charge at every possible moment,“ Packard said. “Now our customers can work with utilities to determine the best time to charge
“They are no longer forced to charge right through peak demand times.”
ClipperCreek’s CS-100-3P joins ClipperCreek’s 19 kW CS-100 (80-amp single-phase) “as the highest power EVSEs on the market today.”
