Paris, September 05, 2012 – Tokheim, one of the world’s largest suppliers of fuel retailing solutions, is pleased to announce the roll-out of its Tokheim EV Charger solution to customers across Europe after a period of successful trials. The AC charger, designed in partnership with DBT, a European leader in electrical equipment, is being launched as part of the new EV products range from Tokheim. First shipments have already been carried out over the summer, and a number of installations are planned for customers over the coming months.
Tokheim’s EV charger solutions are designed for service stations, commercial fleet installations, and utility infrastructure suppliers. The Tokheim AC Electrical Vehicle Charger has a compact footprint and it has been optimised to allow for safe and easy installation. It offers a wide range of payment options depending on the environment it is deployed in such as, but not limited to, coin/token acceptor or an RFID card reader.
The Tokheim EV Charger is designed in stainless steel cladding to ensure it operates effectively in the toughest of environments. Through its highly scalable electrical configurations (from 3 KW 22KW), the two plugs provided by the AC charger will allow electric vehicles to be recharged in approximately 30 minutes with the highest power configuration (for a recharged battery of 25kw at 80-percent).
The Tokheim AC EV Charger will be showcased at Automechanika in Frankfurt 11-16 September. Tokheim’s network 31 direct sales and service divisions are on hand to discuss the best solution for clients, in what is an ever-expanding sector. The Tokheim AC EV Charger is available today from all Tokheim’s direct operations.
