Brisbane-based Tritium launched a modular electric vehicle (EV) charging platform on Tuesday that will enable sites to scale up charging rates as demand grows.
A world-first, according to the company, the “Modular Scalable Charging” (MSC) hardware platform consists of a base 75kW charger dubbed the RTM75, that can be increased in 25kW increments up to 350kW and beyond.
The modular platform does away with the need to rip out old platforms to install faster charging units, something that is bound to become a problem as electric vehicle uptake picks up pace.
“This has been something the industry and our customers have asked for over the years, and we are the first company in the world to deliver it,” said Jane Hunter, CEO of Tritium.
Hunter says that the MSC platform will allow the burgeoning EV charging sector to ensure it is ready to scale with EV adoption rather than become obsolete or have to invest in expensive re-fits.
“With our MSC platform, 50kW DC chargers can quickly be upgraded to 75kW, 100kW, and beyond, without a rip-and-replace required.”
It’s something the industry has been asking for some time, she says.
