Third-generation eVolt Rapid charger helps eliminate downtime

By / 8 months ago / Tech / No Comments

Evolt’s third-generation Rapid charger introduces modular power technology to help reduce the potential for downtime.

The Raption 50 features four individual power packs delivering 12.5kW each.

Instead of the single power pack set-up of previous units, the new Raption 50 features four individual power packs delivering 12.5kW each. In the event of one power pack failing, the Raption unit continues charging EVs at a lower output by drawing power from the functioning packs.

Three cables are offered – two DC and one AC – enabling the unit to provide simultaneous charging for two EVs at 50kW DC and 43kW AC or at 50kW DC each.

The modular architecture also enables the Raption to be scaled up or down, for example if a local power network isn’t capable of Rapid charging or if a user only needs to draw 25kW of power.

Other features include a smaller and slimmer design along with a 20cm touchscreen that has multiple language option, an inbuilt downlight and charging connector holsters that can only be unlocked from the charging station with a verified RFID card.
