Sevadis has launched MaxiCharger, a new electric vehicle (EV) charger that provides a cost-effective solution for a wide range of sectors and applications, with all the flexibility and functionality that installers and their customers require. Sevadis also offers full product training on the new MaxiCharger, as well as its expert technical support, to assist installers and wholesalers.
The latest addition to the Sevadis range of EV charging solutions, MaxiCharger is a wall- or pedestal-mounted single outlet, universal Type 2 charger. It has a charging capacity of up to 7.4kW on a single-phase connection and 11kW or 22kW on a three-phase connection. Importantly, the unit has Protective Multiple Earthings (PME) fault detection built in, meaning there is no need for an earth rod or separate monitoring device. This means a simpler and more cost-effective installation and helps ensure compliance with the IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition (BS 7671).
MaxiCharger, with a RRP from £399, is also Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) 1.6 compliant. OCPP allows compatibility between the charger and a range of different management and billing software platforms to provide greater choice and flexibility for customers. It also features integrated smart dynamic load balancing (DLB) to automatically regulate the power drawn by the EV chargers when in use to prevent overloads and power shortages. The dynamic load balancing also ensures a fair distribution of the available power to all charging vehicles, which is essential at times of peak demand.
Furthermore, MaxiCharger has 4G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and ethernet connectivity options to suit the needs of the customer and the existing building infrastructure. The charger unit is also IP65 rated against water and dust ingress on the tethered MaxiCharger and IP54 rated on the socket version. It also has IK08 impact resistance and is supplied with an industry leading three-year warranty.
Installers and wholesalers can also benefit from the support offered by Sevadis. Sevadis provides full technical support including free site surveys where required and product specific installer training.
John Abernethie at Sevadis says, “The use of electric vehicles is expanding rapidly and the Government announcement that all new buildings with parking must include EV charging points means customers need a cost-effective but high performance solution. The robust MaxiCharger is suitable for a wide range of applications from homes and offices to leisure and hospitality. It has also been designed to make installation straightforward, with systems such as PME fault detection and dynamic load balancing built in.”
Developed in partnership with Autel, Luca Scattolin, General Manager of Autel Europe comments, “This is our first entry into the UK and it was paramount that we partnered with a company that understood and had significant expertise in this market. We are extremely proud of the product we have developed with Sevadis and believe it is ideal in making a high quality product more accessible. This is exactly what the market needs.”
