ABB TO BRING SAFE, SMART AND SUSTAINABLE E-MOBILITY TO THE MASSES… The newest inEVcharging
W ith sustainable transport solutions forming a key component of ABB Electrification’s Mission to Zero for smart cities, the pioneer in digital technologies unveils the latest extension to its e-mobility portfolio. As the global leader in sustainable transport solutions ABB has taken another significant step in driving this e-mobility revolution forward over the next decade with the launch of its new Terra AC wallbox. The wallbox is designed not only to meet the surging demand for quality yet affordable connected charging in homes and businesses, but also supports the growing generation of renewable energy users who want to harness and manage the consumption of their own power. The new Terra AC wallbox is available in up to 22kW variants to ensure compatibility with the electrical system of homes and buildings across the world. It offers a safe, smart and sustainable charging solution which supports ABB Electrification’s Mission to Zero for smart cities, a vision for a zero-emission reality for all. It will be available in select markets, including Europe, over the coming months and available globally by May
2020. The AC wallbox can be ordered via the ABB partner network. James Kelly, E-mobility lead for ABB Ireland, explains: “2020 is a crucial year to begin the shift change in de- carbonising the Irish transport segment. Electrifying our passenger vehicles is key to this. In order to achieve Ireland’s goal of 950,000 EVs on the road by 2030, we need to have the right EV charging infrastructure and supporting technologies. The AC wallbox is one crucial piece of this infrastructure. The Terra AC wallbox represents exactly that. Easy to install and use, it will integrate seamlessly with the digital lifestyle of today’s consumers and EV charging operators, allowing both to efficiently manage their energy usage and contribute to a greener society for today and future generations.” The Terra AC wallbox benefits from connectivity that enables configuration and software updates via a dedicated App or remotely via the cloud, providing
a lot of flexibility and minimising the need for onsite intervention and maximising uptime and efficiency. Meanwhile, each charger is equipped with a high accuracy revenue grade energy meter that can be integrated with smart building energy management systems, allowing advanced load management features. This enables home and business owners to adjust the power of assets as needed to maximise charging power and cost efficiency. ABB is a world leader in electric vehicle infrastructure, offering the full range of charging and electrification solutions for electric cars, electric and hybrid buses as well as for ships and railways. ABB entered the EV-charging market back in 2010, and today has sold more than 13,000 ABB DC fast chargers across over 80 countries.
