When driving electrically, you also need to be able to charge your vehicle at home or at your workplace. For this, Emobe will be offering a range of chargers. Starting from a simple 1 phase charger, over Chademo quick chargers, to intelligent V2H chargers.
In order to select a wall- or post-mounted charger for your house or business, the following questions should be answered :
- Which connector is fitted on my vehicle? (see table below)
- Which charger mode is compatible with my vehicle? (see table below)
- How fast do I want to charge?
- Is the charger placed inside or outside?
- Is the charger accessible to third parties?
- How long should the cable be?
- Do I want a “design” or “industrial” charger?
- On a post or wall-mounted?
Emobe offers a broad choice of possibilities that can suit your requirements. So, don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or remarks.
If needed, Emobe can install your charger and connect it to the grid (including certification).
