|UP160J Networked Dual Level-2 EV Charging Station:|
The UP160J provides charging for 2 Electric Vehicles simultaneously, supporting all new EVs (such as the Nissan "LEAF", GM "VOLT", and FORD "Focus EV"). Designed to deliver the best user experience to your EV drivers, while offering you the most robust product on the market, the UP160J is ideal for demanding multi-family, public and fleet use. Here are a few feature highlights:
Each UP160J station consists of the GRIDbot networked graphical user interface, and two Level-2 chargers, housed in a rugged 1/4 inch thick all aluminum, corrosion resistant pedestal. The charging coupler is controlled by GRIDbot's patent pending safety controller, offering durable fail safe personal ground fault protection and ground monitoring technology.
Once installed, each UP station becomes part of a secure network, giving the owner remote control over several interface options including a wide array of data collection, value exchange, price setting, and diagnostic capabilities.
The "fleet" interface is designed to optimize the driver's plug-in experience and to facilitate fleet management by collecting data on a per vehicle basis.
The "vending" and "value" interfaces are designed to give EV drivers the best user experience, while providing an effective cost recovery business model for the station owners. Data and IDs are collected on a per user basis which facilitates various subscription mechanisms. In "vending" mode, the price of each port is set by owners online and displayed on the station. In "value" mode, EV drivers receive free charging by using GRIDbot's patented SMS cell phone interface.
Demand response control is built into each level-2 port and is driven by patented line-monitoring algorithms, as well as signal control over the network. The maximum amperage draw of the level-2 vehicle can be adjusted at any time, during charging, with a 3 minute response. Additionally a network independent cold load ramp-up system softens the load draw on local transformers after a power outage.
The entire station firmware and interface is remotely upgradable, allowing new interfaces, languages and protocols to be sent to stations in the field from the server, as the industry EVSE industry learns what EV drivers, station owners, and businesses like best.
