Will Remain in the Residential EV Charger Market
Eaton is exiting the market for heavy duty EVSE – electric vehicle support equipment, including its high-power “hyper” chargers.
“Eaton is discontinuing our direct current hyper charger for electric buses, direct current quick chargers and Level 2 commercial electric car chargers, and this was effective September 1,” a company spokeswoman told F&F this morning.
‘Weakened Market Demand’
“The decision on these products was a business decision dictated by weakened market demand.
“We will continue to provide technical support through the Eaton Technical Resource Center (TRC) and will continue to process warranties,” she said. “The discontinuation will not affect the manufacture and sale of Eaton’s residential charging solutions.”
Eaton reported Intertek-ETL safety certification of the DC hyper charger early this year (F&F, February 19).
