ABB multi-standard chargers are CHAdeMO 1.0 compliant

ABB Terra 23/53 range of fast chargers has successfully passed the new European certification process for DC fast chargers at Applus IDIADA (independent certification house) in Spain. ABB multi-standard chargers are compliant with CHAdeMO 1.0, the CE standard and new industry guidelines. CHAdeMO 1.0 certification was carried out in March in Spain after Applus IDIADA certification house for fast charging in Europe was opened.

ABB Terra53CJGABB chargers have also passed the individual vehicle verification testing with Japanese and European car manufacturers, including backward compatibility testing with CHAdeMO 0.9 vehicles. ABB’s chargers are immediately designed according to the MOCCA (Multi Outlet Charger Configuration Agreement) specification for seamless and safe integration of multiple standards for fast charging into one single fast charger. This ensures safety, technical architecture, functionality and usability when combining multiple outlets into one fast charger.

Wil van Gils (VP R&D of ABB EV Charging Infrastructure) said, “ABB has chosen to avoid rushing products to market and rather focus on pushing appropriate certification to ensure the necessary quality, reliability and safety for a professional EV charging network. We are very proud to be the first with Chademo1.0 certification outside Japan and to be the first to have passed all relevant compliance verifications with European and Japanese cars. Specifically on MOCCA he adds: ‘’We have given full support to Idiada to co-develop the MOCCA specification as we are convinced that this is a key element for a successful rollout of public fastcharging infrastructure’’.

Following certification, ABB has released the Terra 23/53 multioutlet chargers for manufacturing and shipping. The first products have been installed and commissioned in the last week of March and can be integrated without effort in the existing ABB cloud network services to meet5 product-quality, operational-uptime, serviceablity and user-experience.
