Proterra, a provider of heavy-duty electric transportation, has launched a multi-dispenser charging solution that enables Proterra charging systems to have multiple low-profile charging dispensers paired with a single power control system (PCS).
With less hardware to purchase and less equipment to install, the multi-dispenser charging solution is designed to lower the cost of infrastructure for customers, says Proterra. It is also optimal for space-constrained depots and parking facilities.
The solution enables automated, sequential vehicle charging with up to four dispensers per PCS. Sequential charging allows multiple vehicles to charge one after the other automatically and at full power. Multi-dispenser charging is enabled for Proterra’s 60 kW and 125 kW systems and serves the Proterra Catalyst transit vehicle, as well as the Proterra Powered Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley electric school bus. For customers who already have Proterra chargers, the multi-dispenser solution can be retrofitted onto existing PCS units.
