Advantages & Benefits

Flexibility and Scalability:

The PowerCharge XP fast chargers feature a modular drawer design utilizing a 10kW base drawer unit. As a result, fast charging systems ranging from 10kW-50kW to be easily configured. In addition, the PowerCharge XP fast chargers can be easily expanded / upgraded by adding additional drawers.

Redundancy and High Availability

One the main benefits that a modular design offers is redundancy. The PowerCharge XP modular design ensures continued operation down to the last drawer (multi-drawer system). This entails high availability as the charger will continue to operate with the remaining drawers ensuring the battery and the truck are still operational.

Low Down Time and Quick Service Time

The PowerCharge XP modular design allows for easy and quick removal and installation of the charger drawers. Typical service times of 15-30 minutes make the PowerCharge XP the simplest and fastest serviceable fast charger on the market.


High Frequency MOSFET / IGBT Technology

The PowerCharge XP charging drawers incorporate high frequency power stage design utilizing IGBTs and MOSFETs and use a high frequency transformer in lieu of the bulky 60Hz transformer found in all competitive fast chargers. This yields very high electrical efficiencies (lower energy bills) and much smaller and lighter units. In fact, the PowerCharge XP fast chargers are the most efficient and lightest fast chargers available on the market.

Highly Intelligent User Interface with Advanced Programmability

The PowerCharge XP fast chargers utilize the latest software and hardware microprocessor technologies and are the first to allow programmability via Palm handheld devices. All charger settings and features can be easily programmable via a Palm software. End users can easily customize the charger operation to fit their needs with the push of a button.
