28 August 2023
Autel Energy, a prominent manufacturer of high-quality electric vehicle chargers, has announced the release of the sought-after MaxiCharger AC Ultra for the European market. This IEC-certified two-point AC charger, now available as a European standard 22-kilowatt electric vehicle charger, is set to make waves in the industry.
According to Kelvin Cao, Vice President of Global Marketing, "The MaxiCharger AC Ultra is the world's most powerful AC charger. It is capable of delivering 22 kilowatts of power concurrently, allowing two vehicles to be charged simultaneously with fast AC power. This feature makes it particularly suitable for businesses seeking an elegant electric vehicle charging solution for their employees, customers, and visitors."
The MaxiCharger AC Ultra is fully compliant with the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) and boasts an array of features, including a 20.3 cm (8-inch) LCD touchscreen, an IP54 rated enclosure, an RFID card reader, and numerous optional add-ons such as a credit card reader, energy meters, and customizable appearance choices.
In addition to its charging capabilities, the MaxiCharger AC Ultra offers businesses various revenue-generation opportunities through Autel's cloud-based portal. This portal enables businesses to provide charge rate discounts based on customer profiles or driver groups, or to monetize advertisements displayed on the terminal's screen. The range of potential applications is extensive, including fleets, educational institutions, parking lot operators, commercial buildings, and residential complexes. These entities can leverage the Autel Cloud to create driver groups, decide when to monetize, and opt for charging fees, free charging, or reduced pricing.
According to Cao, "Our cloud platform serves as the central hub of a large-scale charging station. It has been designed to enhance the operator's experience. Whether you manage a single MaxiCharger or a fleet of 100, our cloud computing infrastructure can handle it all seamlessly, granting operators complete control over their operations."
The user-friendly 20.3 cm (8-inch) touchscreen interface allows businesses to interact with customers through branded videos, slideshows, or third-party promotional content. The interactive LCD screen displays crucial charging data, such as cost, power usage, kilowatt-hours consumed, and the total duration of the charging session, all in multiple languages.
Cao emphasizes, "The MaxiCharger AC Ultra sets a new standard for convenience with its touchscreen interface. Drivers can initiate the charging process with just a few taps on the screen. The interface presents all information in a clear and comprehensible manner, offering electric vehicle drivers a truly exceptional charging experience."
Drivers have multiple payment options at their disposal, including the Autel Charge app, credit card terminals, or RFID cards, ensuring a seamless connection for a wide range of consumption habits. This integration of advanced technology and user-centric design makes the MaxiCharger AC Ultra a game-changer in the electric vehicle charging landscape.
