SBT's Endeavor Business Media co-publication EnergyTech on Feb. 24 reported that truck cover manufacturer Worksport has added two electric vehicle fast-charging stations at its manufacturing facility in West Seneca, New York. Worksport subsidiary Terravis Energy completed installation of the 120-kWh stations after starting work in January.
According to Terravis, the production-level EV fast charging systems deployed are modular and provide EV drivers with real-time analytic information on a seven-inch LCD.
The systems incorporate intelligent network communication capabilities, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular connectivity and RFID/NFC communications.
The charging systems also offer a human-machine interface and advanced safety features such as overcurrent and overheating protection to ensure the charging process is safe and efficient, as reckoned by the company.
The two direct-current fast chargers are equipped with two combined charging standward (CCS1) connectors, known as pistols. The systems are billed as being equipped with waterproof and dustproof technology, as well as a weather-resistant enclosure.
Terravis says it plans to install additional DC fast chargers, rated at a minimum of 240 kWh, in the near future.
