Veefil Tradename for 50-, 22-, and 12-Kilowatt Units,
Connected, 50-Kilowatt Veefil UT Is Designed for Fleets

Australia’s Tritium is adding 12- and 22-kilowatt DC fast-chargers to its Veefil production line, augmenting an existing 50-kilowatt Veefil unit – and adding connectivity to the 50-kilowatt offering, a feature aimed specifically at fleets.

“Tritium’s philosophy is to work closely with its customers to tailor our products to their requirements, and from our discussions with them on what they really need we have developed three new products, including one specifically for the fleet market, which we will be marketing internationally,” commercial director Paul Sernia said in a release (emphasis added).

“All the new products provide the same benefits as the original Veefil. The (50-kilowatt) Veefil UT is available now and the (12-kilowatt) Veefil WP and Veefil 22kW will be ready to ship early 2017,” he said.

A Range of Four DC Fast-Chargers

“These new charging products now create a Veefil range of four chargers – with all the chargers sharing Tritium’s unique technology (including liquid cooling),” says the new product release. All are both CHAdeMO- and SAE Combo- compatible.

The products will be shown this week at eCarTec, which runs October 18-20 in Munich.

Tritium notes further that

  • the connected-for-fleets 50-kilowatt Veefil UT has been designed specifically for energy and utility companies worldwide – and is “the first fast charger designed to connect directly to the grid.” It is “a solution for metering, switch gear and protection systems in a single unit,” Tritium says, “significantly reducing installation and maintenance costs;”
  • the 22-kilowatt Veefil DC fast charger is similar to the company’s original 50-kilowatt unit, but is designed to give customers more options in locations dependent on a lower power supply; and
  • the compact 12-kilowatt Veefil WP DC fast charger, “designed specifically for the workplace and ideal for fleet applications,” fits easily into existing car parking areas and can provide 120 kilometers (about 75 miles) of charge in two hours.

The Veefil line’s aluminum chassis and liquid cooling allow the units to operate in a wide range of climactic conditions with increased reliability and reduced maintenance.

In addition to its EVSE/electric vehicle support equipment products for DC fast-charging, Tritium promotes BMS/battery management systems and inverters for EVs. Tritium and California-based ChargePoint announced distribution deal for the United States last year (F&F, March 27, 2015).
