SWARCO eVolt at LCV 2019

Events, Transport & Logistics, EMEA, Supplier News

SWARCO eVolt will be exhibiting the newest addition to its range of rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions at the Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) Event from 4th to 5th September at the Millbrook car testing facility in Bedford.



The 150kW Raption charger, the company's most powerful to date, is a contactless solution that supports simultaneous DC/DC operation and incorporates an 8in LED touchscreen which can be used for revenue generation or advertising.


Alongside the 150kW Raption will be the slimline 50kW DC Raption charger. With triple AC/DC outlets and locking plug holsters, this unit is suitable for charging all rapid-charge-enabled EVs. Its modular design means that in the unlikely event that one rectifier should fail, the others remain operational.  


E.Connect, an intelligent EV recharging network for eVolt and third party-manufactured charging stations across the UK and Europe, will also be demonstrated on the company's stand, alongside an updated DC/AC controller and receiver solution for multiple charging and  eVolve post which provide a durable, weatherproof enclosure.


Justin Meyer, SWARCO eVolt general manager, says:

"Year-on-year we have increased our presence at LCV and this year will be no different with our biggest ever stand to showcase our portfolio of smart, integrated charging solutions and technologies.


"2018 was a record-breaking year for the business; we now have over 7,000 SWARCO eVolt charging units installed and are working with 91 councils across the UK. We are committed to delivering continued innovation and further integration with intelligent traffic technologies, while ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction.”
