Phoenix Contact - High Power Charging (HPC) - 500 A, 1000 V CCS Combo plug

ABB is introducing its new high power charging solution - the Terra HP, designed for 150-350 kW power outputs, while at the same time being dual-standard: CHAdeMO and CCS Combo.

The new chargers are two separate units - the cabinet that provides power, and the station terminals with charging connectors and authorization systems.

Multiple cabinets can power multiple charging terminals through Dynamic DC power sharing technology, for better utilization of the infrastructure overall.

The official unveiling is scheduled for the Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition (AKA EVS30) in Stuttgart from 9-11 October (Stand 43, Hall 1).

Here is hoping we see them 'in the wild' real soon!

"Ideally suited for use at highway rest stops and petrol stations, Terra HP’s ultra-high current has the capacity to charge both 400 V and 800 V cars at full power.

The 375 A output single power cabinet can charge a 400 V car at full 150 kW continuously. The addition of Dynamic DC power sharing technology, allows a two-power cabinet charging system to charge a couple of EVs simultaneously, with up to 350 kW and 500 A, while dynamically optimizing the available grid connection and the power delivery to the two vehicles."

"Additional power cabinets and charge posts can be added after installation, delivering a cost-effective and future-proof solution for expandable charge points that can grow as the EV base grows.

To further improve performance, Terra HP delivers the highest uptime due to redundancy on power and communication, and individually cooled charging cables. Having proven its paces in numerous commercial electric bus field installations, the power cabinet is also extremely reliable.

For charging operators, Terra HP provides the additional benefit of ABB Ability™ Connected Services, which deliver enhanced functionality, including the ability to easily connect chargers to back offices, payment platforms or smart grids systems. More importantly, remote diagnostics, repair and over-the-air software updates, minimize downtime and keep running costs low.

Terra HP delivers a number of additional benefits for consumers, including an intuitive, easy to use touchscreen display and multiple payment options.

ABB has provided charging solutions as part of its drive to promote sustainable mobility since 2010 and has sold more than 6,000 cloud connected DC fast-chargers around the world for passenger cars and commercial vehicles."

Commenting on the launch Frank Mühlon, Head of ABB’s Global Business for Electric Vehicle Charging, said:

“We are committed to supporting the expansion of electric vehicle charging systems across the globe to drive cleaner environments. Creating innovative state-of-the-art and energy efficient solutions which are scalable to expand and flex with our customers’ needs is at the heart of ABB’s philosophy.”
