Electric Vehicles (EV)
Protecting the charging infrastructure and electric vehicles from lightning and surge damage
Electric vehicles - clean, fast and quiet - are becoming increasingly popular. Being involved right from the start is important in many sectors.
At present, particularly technological challenges must be coped with:
- Increasing the performance of the batteries
- Implementation of a practice-oriented infrastructure
- Nationwide charging facilities
- Introduction of uniform standards
The quickly growing electromobility market is already sparking great interest among the industry, utilities, communities and citizens. To be in the black as soon as possible, it is vital to prevent downtime. Therefore, a comprehensive lightning and surge protection concept must be implemented already at the design phase.
Safety – a competitive advantage
Lightning effects and surges present a risk for the sensitive electronic circuitry of electromobility charging stations and the customer’s vehicle. Failure or damage can quickly become quite expensive. Apart from the repair costs, you run the risk of losing the trust of your customers. Therefore, reliability is a top priority, particularly in an emerging market.
Protect your investments with the comprehensive DEHN protective device portfolio for electromobility charging stations and prevent costly damage to
- the charge controller and battery
- the electronic circuitry for the controller, counter and communication system of the charging station
of the vehicle to be charged.
