Eaton provides a solution for curbing range anxiety with the Pow-R-Station DC Quick charger. The DC Quick Charger (DCQC)
supplies a connection to the grid for drivers on-the-go with a fast direct charge of electricity needed to refill the battery.
Installations of the quick charger will not only supply power to the EV, it will also provide range confidence for the
- The Pow-R-Station DC Quick electric vehicle charger utilizes a CHAdeMO compliant power connector. With respect to the SAE J1772 DC charging protocol, the Eaton DC Quick Charger is designed to be field retrofittable to either replace the CHAdeMO protocol and connector with the SAE combo connector or to add the SAE combo connector to the existing CHAdeMO charger to allow for non-simultaneous charging via either protocol. These field retrofit kits will be available in 2013. This connector represents the proposed global industry standard for high-voltage DC quick charging.
- To ensure product safety the Eaton DC Quick Charger is ETL Listed by Intertek to the following standards:
- UL 2202, UL 2231, UL 2594, UL 991
- CSA C22.2 No 107.1
- In addition, the Eaton DC Quick Charger includes an output isolation monitor, CAN polling loops with the EV, solenoid lockout for the connector during a charging state, digital signals that will disconnect before the power connections in order to cause a rapid shutdown of charge current, and 300mA earth leakage detection on the main incoming circuit breaker that is integral to the machine.
- Like with Eaton’s Level 2,
there are various communications between the electric vehicle and the Pow-R-Station DC Quick charger to ensure user safety.
These safety checks verify that there is no chance of injury to the user or the equipment.
- Electric vehicles are required to have an interlock deactivating the ignition while connected. If anything happens to
disrupt the connection, such as a user pressing the release lever, the power flow to the vehicle will immediately
- Eaton manufactures all products that may be needed to support an electrical system upgrade, if it is required for
installation. Eaton’s Electrical Services and Systems (EESS) team of
electrical engineers is available nationwide and can be augmented by Eaton’s network of national, local and
specialty commercial electrical contractors and system integrators.
