E-mobility for the masses with ABB home EV charging solution
ABB has unveiled the latest extension to its e-mobility portfolio with the launch of its new Terra AC wallbox. This also helps ABB progress towards the ABB Electrification Mission to Zero for smart cities.
The wallbox is designed to meet the surging demand for quality and affordable connected charging stations in commercial and residential settings but also supports the growing generation of renewable energy users who want to harness and manage the consumption of their own power.
It’s available in up to 22kW variants to ensure the compatibility with the electrical system of homes and buildings across the globe. The wallbox is also a safe and sustainable charging solution as ABB aims to make zero emissions a reality for all.
“The trends of urbanisation, digitalisation and industrialisation all converged to necessitate a significant shift in the way we travel,” ABB head of global business for e-mobility infrastructure solutions Frank Muehlon says.
“Already leading the DC fast charging market, we recognized the need to draw on our extensive experience to develop a game changing AC solution for overnight or longer duration charging in homes and businesses.
“The Terra AC wallbox represents exactly that; easy to install and use, it will integrate seamlessly with the digital lifestyle of today’s consumers, allowing them to efficiently manage their energy usage and contribute to a greener society for today and future generations.”
The wallbox’s software can be updated through a dedicated app or remotely through the cloud, giving users flexibility, eliminates the need for on-site intervention and maximises efficiency.
Each charger also features a high-accuracy grade energy meter that can be integrated with smart building energy management systems, letting home and business owners to adjust the power of assets as needed to maximise charging power and cost efficiency.
