ABB, the technology and e-mobility provider, has launched its new 180kW Terra 184 high-powered electric vehicle (EV) charger.
ABB said the new charger, which is available to order in Europe now, is compact enough at 0.5m2 that it can be used in locations in city centres where space is at a premium. A single charger can also be used to charge three vehicles at once.
The company said the Terra 184 is compatible with vehicles of all sizes, including plug-in cars, vans, buses and trucks.
The Terra 184 supports all the charging standards on the market, including CCS, CHAdeMO and AC, and caters to the needs of all batteries up to 920V.
Frank Muehlon, head of ABB’s global business for e-mobility infrastructure solutions and Smart Transport member, said: “With our latest extension to the Terra range, we have delivered against the demands of today and tomorrow, both in terms of the needs of urban areas and of the electric vehicles which frequent their roads.”
The Terra 184 is customisable with features including customised credit card payment terminal, screen and eight metre cables.
For those that already have Terra 94 or Terra 124 charging stations, these can be upgraded to a 184 with the addition of extra power modules.
Since entering the EV-charging market a decade ago, ABB has sold more than 14,000 ABB DC fast chargers across more than 80 countries.
ABB recently received the Global E-mobility Leader 2019 award for its role in supporting the international adoption of sustainable transport solutions.
