EVOLUTION ELECTRIC STATION - Solutions for Electric Mobility (Part 3)
AC COLUMNS (AC MODE 3)
Based on their characteristics, the AC columns are widely used in all places where the electric vehicle remains parked for at least an hour or so. It is also important to underline that an electric vehicle being recharged does not necessarily have to perform a full recharge, very often in fact partial recharges are performed: the average EV Driver is in fact used to connecting every time it finds a column, for the time necessary to park he would still have to do (for example: shopping at the shopping center).
Low price and low installation costs
Safeguard battery performance
Average slow / accelerated top-up
Charging power variable according to the vehicle
DIRECT CURRENT COLUMNS (DC MODE 4)
On the basis of their characteristics, direct current columns are used in places where it is necessary to guarantee a fast charging service (for example in service stations). Fast charging is also a very strong incentive for the spread of electric vehicles and their use, because it allows you to extend your journey by making very short stops (10-30 minutes); for this reason, a wide diffusion of these systems in places of passage is desirable (a direct current charging station becomes in fact a pole of attraction for electric vehicles).
Fast charging for each vehicle
Universal (if multi-standard)
High price (compared to AC Mode 3 columns)
Medium / high installation and connection costs
If used very often it could affect the battery life
