This product is essentially our SmartCharge-12000 product, repackaged into half of the volume and ruggedized to meet the challenges of the exposed environments. Originally designed to fit the fake fuel tank of the Zero motorcycle, this charger measures just 10x7x8" which makes it the most power-dense unit available on the market today.
This version of the charger is fully sealed, with IP65 level of environmental protection. While we do not recommend applications involving immersion in water, this unit is designed to be perfectly happy with occasional splashdowns. Due to this degree of environmental protection, this version of the charger is controlled / programmed only via serial link. Details on Serial control are available from our QuickStart Guide. A 1-foot shielded cable is provided to allow such control. You will need an FTDI cable to connect to the charger via any terminal software.
Power up via J1772 at any L2 charging station! Select the "J1772 inlet cable" option to receive an inlet cable for charging off of any EVSE - home or public.
Please note that 12kW power rating can be achieved only when the battery voltage is higher than 170V as the max output current is limited to 70A.
Fully programmable and open-source:Charger can be programmed for any input / output current / voltage at any time in field. Factory setting is not necessary, but ask us for pre-set. Control via serial UART.
J1772 support with automatic power regulation:Charger reads and interprets the J1772 pilot signal & limits max power draw to the one suggested by the EVSE. Multiple chargers can be run in parallel, controlled by one simple head unit.
Temperature resistant: Thermal output derating above 55C heatsink temperature. Inductor temperature sensing.
Flexible battery settings: Set number of batteries, capacity through a simple-to-use interface.
Designed with EV Integration in mind: IP65 weather sealed enclosure, limited airflow surface area air cooling system, low weight and minimal dimensions.
Highly modular design of PCBs and connectors allows rapid swaps and removal of boards when repair / service is needed.
Circuitry and firmware for precharge, automatic 120/240V switching, under-voltage protection.
Firmware optimized for stability.
Additional features: BMS stop-charge TTL input. End-of-Charge TTL output. Hardware current limiting.
Made in the USA: From domestic and imported parts.
