Siemens Energy, Inc.has launched a lineup of electric vehicle
charging station that include residential, commercial and integrated smart grid systems equipped with Coulomb's ChargePoint
networking capabilities. The lineup of chargers includes wall-mountable Level II residential units and multi-level (Level I and Level II) commercial chargers. The company's wall-mountable residential system features a 7.2-kW single-output configuration, while the multi-level commercial units are outfitted with both a Level I and Level II output, and these can deliver power to two electric vehicles simultaneously.
By offering Coulomb's ChargePoint-networking capabilities, all of the Siemens chargers feature 24/7 driver assistance, smart phone detection capability and automated driver billing. Additionally, all of the newly launched units are UL listed and incorporate metering capabilities that allow them to be easily integrated into rapidly expanding smart grid systems. Siemens has yet to release pricing for its lineup of advanced vehicle chargers, but we'd expect the residential unit to fall in line with others, like the Coulomb CT500
, which offers similar capabilities.
