CT4000-series charging station with Power Sharing option
ChargePoint recently presented its new CT4000 series of AC charging terminals with two J1772 plugs.
This latest product stands out with a unique Power Sharing function that allows a single 7.2 kW circuit to power a dual-port charging station. It works like this: if one car is connected it can use the full 7.2 kW of power. But when second car gets connected, both will charge at a 3.6 kW rate.
Why do this? Well, this doubles the number of charging spots without increasing installation costs.
Pat Romano, President and CEO for ChargePoint said:
"The CT4000 Series changes the equation by offering more charging ports at every station while dramatically cutting installation costs. The CT4000 is truly a customer-centric EV charging station. Its creation is the result of understanding the needs of both drivers and station owners alike."
But if you don't want Power Sharing, then you could order a 2 x 7.2 kW version or the 1 x 7.2 kW version.
The ChargePoint CT4000 includes Clean Cord Technology and a color LCD screen:
"Clean Cord Technology – a self-retracting, maintenance-free, ultra-lightweight cord management system, which is a standard feature on all CT4000 Series models to make charging an easier and more convenient experience."
"In addition, the CT4000 Series offers a first-ever customizable video feature on a color LCD screen allowing station owners to run video content of their choice through ChargePoint’s cloud service. Station owners can further customize their CT4000 series charger by using the built-in signage feature (also standard with all models). The interactive instruction video for the CT4000 is consumer-friendly and available in English, Spanish and French."
According to the press release, ChargePoint now has over 12,000 charge spots installed with over 70% market share of networked public charging stations and hundreds of outstanding order to fulfill.
