Green Watt Power, a division of Powerland Technology, is launching the new EVC3300 series of ruggedized AC Chargers. The units work at 10Amps, support 200V – 420V outputs with IP67 and an optional J1772, and come in fan or fanless case options.
The EVC3300 series is meant for Lithium-Ion batteries in EVs such as scooters, motorcycles, e-carts, and material handling scenarios. The chargers are on-board unit designs for better reliability. Holding to a broader variety of applications (EVs) the chargers come in metal cases for safe and efficient power conversion.
The units are easily integrated into a variety of form factors, for various space constraints, such as scooters, or full-sized motorcycles. These chargers have the option of being fan-cooled or liquid-cooled for a broader range of operations. The no-fan version package is designed for high-power density and thermal efficiency. The no-fan charger is fully potted for times when there is greater stress on the system.
The 3.3kW charger has a universal input range from 85 to 264VAC and can operate across a wide range of wall power input voltages. This allows the units to be used in most places throughout the world. The input frequency range is 45 to 65Hz with efficiency ratings of 95%. The typical Power Factor Correction (PFC) is 0.99.
The EVC3300 series come with CAN bus communications for direct component status updates in most scenarios. Protection features include UVLO, OVP, SCP, OTP, and OCP. The operating temperature range is from -40C – +60C and the storage temperature range from -40C – +85C.
These AC Chargers are meant for home and industrial wall charging, of smaller EVs. The EVC3300 series will be a forerunner of the type of charging that will be everywhere in just a few years. Most updated charging platforms are hoping to be software-defined ecosystems, that can work from any available electrical supply outlets, whether a free-standing dedicated station or a residential or building power source.
The datasheet for the EVC3300 can be found on the Green Watt Power website.
