Tritium’s RT175-S smart charging system powers EVs to an 80% charge in 15 minutes on average and is capable of Plug and Charge, a communications protocol enabling electric vehicles and charging equipment to communicate, authenticate, and bill customers via the charging cable. No longer will drivers need an RFID membership card, smartphone application, or credit card reader to pay for their charge. With Plug and Charge, a charging session can be automatically and securely billed from the moment the plug connects to the vehicle, regardless of the network operator. This advancement in charging technology streamlines and simplifies the charging experience, while improving customer data security. Not only does the RT175-S make the charging experience more convenient than ever, but the unit provides a powerful 175kW charge through an elegant and compact design, making it an economical solution for sites where limited space for charging is available. The RT175-S is easy to install, boasts a power efficiency averaging 95%, and is IP65 rated, providing cost savings and optimal functionality in a wide range of environmental conditions. This fast charger with its all-in-one isolated power unit and integrated reinforced isolating transformer allows for continuous 175kW operation at 104°F (40°C) and 150kW operation at 122°F (50°C). Optional features include cold weather kit for operation down to -22°F (-30°C), escutcheon panel with interlocked pad lockable isolator for added safety, increased SCCR to 100kA for grid connection with high available fault currents, and site power management and load balancing for multiple charger sites. It offers quick and secure payment methods for EV drivers, with credit card compatibility integrated with distinct payment models, including fixed price charging, pre-authorized/post settlement variable pricing, and charges based on elapsed time for kWh consumed.
