With an aim to tap the growing electric vehicles (EV) market, FIMER, the world’s fourth largest solar inverter manufacturer, has unveiled its new portfolio of AC and DC EV charging stations and wallboxes, for both residential and commercial applications.
The electric vehicles are expected to account for an estimated 30 per cent of global vehicles by the year 2025.
Commenting on the launch of EV chargers portfolio, Gaetano Belluccio, FIMER’s managing director of e-mobility, said “we are proud of our strong track record in harnessing the power of the sun for sustainable energy. The introduction of our new EV solutions marks a step forward in our ambition to drive a new era for e-mobility. It builds on our proven credentials in the EV sector, where we have already installed more than 30,000 solutions since 2017.”
On the basis of it’s experience in the sector, the new portfolio has been developed to respond to customers’ needs and includes 5 purpose-built solutions which deliver high charging outputs and outstanding levels of efficiency and flexibility, the company said in a statement.
“With this launch, we are continuing to build on our heritage and expertise to create a range of sustainable solutions that will provide fast, efficient charging for generations to come. We are proud to be championing this new electric era and look forward to working with communities across Europe and beyond to drive broader EV adoption rates,” added FIMER’s Chairman Filippo Carzaniga.
For residential purpose, the company introduced its new FIMER Flexa AC Wallbox, a wall or stand mounted charger, available in 3 different models i.e. Stand Alone, Future Net and Inverter Net. Further, each model has 4 possible configurations i.e. 3.7 kW, 7.4 kW, 11 kW and 22 kW, and 2 options with socket or cord.
Offering connection and smart management with additional charging points, it is easy to install and maintain. Also, for ultimate flexibility, FIMER Flexa AC can be easily adapted to any environment, from a private house to public parking lot, thanks to its clever stand accessories. The addition of a quick fixing solution allows users to easily disconnect the wallbox and move it to another place and it can also be used as an emergency charging cable.
Significantly, the wallbox is made from 100 per cent recycled plastic, making the solution more environment friendly.
Moreover, FIMER Flexa stand is available in both single-charging-point mode and double charging-point mode and its features include LED lighting to highlight the charging point. To guarantee public security and safety, the stand also features internal electrical protection.
For commercial applications such as parking lots and supermarkets, the company has developed 3 solutions i.e. FIMER Flexa AC Station, FIMER Flexa AC Wallbox and FIMER Electra DC Station.
The FIMER Flexa AC charging station is ideal for use in public places, where it can charge up to 2 vehicles at the same time in alternating current. It is available in 2 different configurations, the first with two type 2 AC sockets, the second with one type 2 socket (power up to 22kW) and one type 3A socket (power of up to 3.7 kW). Both configurations are available in 3 versions i.e. Stand Alone, Future Net and Inverter Net.
Additionally, the solution provides high levels of diagnostics that can detect failures caused by external agents, activate relative alarms, and automatically return to a normal function once the emergency has been resolved.
The company’s another FIMER Electra DC Station, which is suitable for public parking and highway services, is a next generation fast charger for EVs, that can simultaneously charge up to 3 vehicles. Based on the number of vehicles connected to the DC outputs, the charging station dynamically distributes its maximum power and can (in DC Mode) charge an EV in under 15 minutes.
In case of power failure, the UPS power backup facility allows the transaction to be concluded and cables released. For added flexibility, stations can also be upgraded after installation, to add power modules and increase charge capacity.
