Restricted access can be set for certain hours, days, or at all times. This stops unauthorized vehicles from charging at certain stations or entire fleets of chargers.
Authorization can be set to fit the needs of the chargers and the property it serves.
Commercial car charging stations can set pricing parameters. We can set pricing for different days, times, and for individual users. These options are simple to manipulate at any time with online portal access to the equipment. This makes fleet management a breeze for property management and owners.
Chargers do not typically require any preventative maintenance schedule for residential applications. Commercial chargers are susceptible to more abuse and would benefit from an annual or monthly maintenance schedule to check for physical wear and tear.
Since there are no moving parts in a Car Charger, the units are pretty reliable and when connected to wifi, they can receive over the air updates to keep the car charger up to date.
Depending on the goal of the property, charging levels 1, 2, or 3 could be the right level of charging. It isn’t typical for most EV drivers to consider the level 1 charging solution because of the slow charge rate. On the flip side, the charge rate of a level 3 is ideal but the cost of infrastructure and the effects of heating on an EV battery is not ideal for daily use. Level 2 charging is by far the most requested solution for residential and commercial properties. Level 2 charging is typically more economical to implement and provides adequate charging for most EV vehicles on the road today.
Level 1 Charging is most typical for home or work. While these can charge a car, it takes an incredibly long time to do so.
- Charging Rate: 3 – 5 MPH
Level 2 Charging are typically referred to as Destination Chargers and can be found at home, work, or public locations such as golf courses, libraries, parking garages, and etc.
- Charging Rate: 12 – 80 MPH
Level 3 Charging is currently found along most highway systems at rest stops, gas stations, and dedicated EV charging locations throughout the country.
- Charging Rate: 3 – 20 MPM (Miles Per Minute)
