InCharge launches three multi-EV charging products 

 InCharge Energy has introduced three new multi-vehicle chargers — the ICE-600, ICE-480 and ICE CUBE — at ACT Expo in Las Vegas, Nev. 

“Our new charging solutions address a pressing need for more powerful solutions that charge a variety of fleet vehicles simultaneously and dynamically, even within constrained spaces,” said Nikolas Runge, chief technology officer, InCharge Energy, in a news release. “Our three new charging systems – including the ICE-600, with its ultra-high charge rate and 10 EV simultaneous charging capabilities – are the most recent examples of just that.”

ICE-600: High-Capacity, Versatile Charging

The ICE-600 system stands out with its ability to charge up to 10 EVs simultaneously through its flexible configuration of ten ‘Micro’ single-cable dispensers or five ‘Slim Line’ dual-cable dispensers, the company said in a release. The system provides dynamic power sharing offered in 60kW increments and, as a vehicle’s charging session ends, auto-reroutes the now-available power to vehicles still being charged. 

The Slim Line dispenser is capable of providing an ultra-high charge rate of up to 500kW on a single connector and can be installed on a pedestal or near a wall. The Micro dispenser, capable of providing up to 180kW on one connector, can be mounted overhead or under a loading dock. Customer deliveries of the ICE-600 are expected to begin in Q4 of 2024.

ICE-480: Streamlined Charging for Quick Turnarounds

Designed for quicker ‘en route’ charging or for use in space-constrained depots, the ICE-480 supports up to eight EVs and offers the convenience of placing up to four Slim Line dispensers approximately 100 yards from the power cabinet, according to InCharge.

The four vehicles can be charged sequentially while four others are ‘asleep’ in standby mode, ready to be automatically activated once a charging slot becomes available. With four vehicles charging simultaneously, power is shared dynamically in 120kW increments, with a single connector capable of providing up to 480kW if no other connectors are in use.

ICE Cube: Compact and Resilient with Integrated Battery Storage

The ICE Cube is a 240kW split EV charging system with integrated battery storage of 200kWh, which can be optionally increased to 800kWh – ensuring that vehicle charging can still occur even during peak periods, the company says. While the split system dispenser configuration has the capacity for four vehicles to be plugged in at two dispensers — with two EVs actively charging while the other two are in an idle state — the charging system can utilize its local grid, a solar panel, power modules or battery packs to charge EVs, providing additional cost efficiencies and optimizing fleet availability.
