Efacec Unveils 24 kW Semi-Fast Charger
Efacec has a new product in pipeline - the 24 kW QC24S fast (or maybe rather semi-fast) charger with 95% efficiency.
The world premiere is scheduled for late October at the 2014 eCarTec in Munich, Germany.
According to Efacec this will be "the smallest, most compact, stylish and more competitively priced DC charger in the market".
While the price remains unknown, let's look at those dimensions:
- 904mmW x 330mmD x 415mmH ( 35.6”W x 13”D x 16.3”H )
From the start it will be available with CCS plug and then also with CHAdeMO plug near the end of this year.
"The new QC24S, to be shown at the next eCarTec in Munich this coming October, has been designed to serve both European and North American markets. The European model is powered by 3 phase 400 V or single phase 230 V and has a combo2 plug. The North American version is equipped with a combo1 plug and is designed to be powered by either 3 phase 208 V or single phase 240 V. This is an important advantage compared to other units that need 480 V, 3 phase for this lower power output of 24 kW, and once again shows Efacec’s concern in adapting its systems to market conditions and customer’s needs. Like the rest of the Efacec DC Fast Charger family, the QC24S can be integrated into any network and is available for any customer."
Pedro Silva, Managing Director of Efacec Electric Mobility stated:
“this new product is a breakthrough and will be a huge contributor to the adoption of EVs, being an affordable charger like never before in the market. We have invested heavily during this last year in developing this new concept and in its design to make it easily integrated in any network. We have also extended our slogan “choose the color of your energy” even further by offering the possibility to customize the front panel to any customer, with a stylish design and attractive look.”
