Tritium continues global expansion with new electric vehicle fast charging stations in California


Brisbane electric vehicle (EV) charging company Tritium continues to export its technology globally, with the latest deal involving the expansion of EV DC fast charging locations in urban areas throughout California.

In the latest deal, Tritium and Electric Vehicle Charging Station Management Software provider EvGateway have partnered on a new project in a popular retail centre in Orange County’s Buena Park, featuring four of Tritium’s RT50/50kW DC fast chargers, which can add 50 kms range to an EV in just 10 minutes of charging.

“Growing DC fast charging locations in urban areas is an important step in furthering EV adoption. Our EV charging station management network helps bridge the gap between drivers and charging station installations,” said Reddy Marri, President for EvGateway.

“Tritium’s stellar customer support team works alongside our site manager to track data in real-time and observe charging trends to identify future improvements. It is important for us to have customer support 24/7 and a system that is cost-effective to upgrade, which is what we get with our partnership with Tritium.”

Tritium’s RT50/50kW DC fast charger is lightweight and recognized for its slimline design and has the world’s smallest footprint, making it easy to install in tight spaces, giving drivers an effortless charging experience when they are travelling or shopping.

According to Tritium its RT50/50kW DC fast charger has reduced set-up costs and faster installation time, so charging services are offered at an unprecedented rate and superior charging experience compared to the AC chargers drivers are used to.

In addition, EvGateway has 24-hour access to Tritium’s robust customer support system, which includes access to data analytics, call centres, and technical experts.

Tritium says that while EvGateway coordinates with utilities and manages the charging installation for EVForce, their software also helps EV drivers manage transactions, make payments and report any technical issues to Tritium’s support team, ensuring superior quality service.

"There’s nearly 1.5 million EVs in the United States, and with less than 75,000 public charging outlets across the country, the demand for publicly accessible charging continues to dramatically increase," said Mike Calise, Tritium’s President of the Americas.

"True energy freedom can only be realised when drivers don’t have to think about where to charge. The availability of DC fast charging must be virtually everywhere that drivers spend time. This deployment is an example of ‘DC Everywhere’ as DC is not just relegated to corridor charging between major cities.

“The EVForce deployment allows drivers to think differently about DC fast charging in what would typically be an AC area. This is one of the most beautiful installations and that’s really inviting drivers to stop, charge and shop in a cool and functional location.”

The funding for the installation comes from EVForce by an initiative of the Energy Commission’s California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP), with the project offering incentives for companies and cities to purchase and install EV charging infrastructure at public sites throughout California.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
