Autel Energy releases MaxiCharger AC Ultra EV charger

The AC Ultra can charge two vehicles simultaneously, each at 19.2 kW of AC power, and features an 8-in. LCD touchscreen.

Autel Energy has announced the availability of its newest electric vehicle charger, the MaxiCharger AC Ultra, now in stock in North America. The company says the AC Ultra was designed, engineered and tested to exceed commercial-grade reliability and durability, and features dual charging ports, multiple network capabilities, robust all-weather resistance, and an 8-in. advertising-ready touchscreen.

The AC Ultra can charge two vehicles simultaneously, each at 19.2 kilowatts of AC power, and is OCPP compliant, featuring an 8-in. LCD touchscreen, a pedestal, and a charging cable management system.

Autel Energy says the AC Ultra offers businesses Autel’s cloud-based portal, which includes the ability to provide charge rate discounts based on customer profiles (first-time or loyal users) and driver groups (taxi or ride-hailing service drivers), and the ability to monetize programmatic advertising. The company says that the AC Ultra’s system also comes with numerous payment options, including credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. In addition, the AC Ultra can be set up to transact using an RFID card. With this feature, a business can give select users or customers RFID-enabled loyalty or employee cards as a perk for a quick and secure charging method.

Using the Autel Charge app, customers can add and replenish funds as needed. Drivers can also link their credit cards in the Autel Charge app and activate and pay for a charging session by scanning the QR code displayed on the Ultra touchscreen.

Autel Energy says other features of the MaxiCharger AC Ultra include:

  • A built-in cable management system that keeps cables off the ground.
  • Wi-Fi, 4G, Bluetooth, and ethernet capability. Wi-Fi allows for hotspot sharing between linked chargers in a network enabling a group of chargers to communicate and share critical information. Wi-Fi, 4G, and ethernet connectivity options allow operators to choose how to connect their chargers while providing over-the-air software updates. The MaxiCharger AC Ultra’s Bluetooth capability enables close-distance communication between the app and charger, activating smart features such as power-sharing settings and RFID card pairing.
  • The touchscreen allows businesses to engage with customers with branded videos or slideshows, or allow other companies to promote their products or services with promotional videos. The IK10 interactive LCD screen displays charging data such as cost, power, kilowatt-hours consumed, and total charging session time in multiple languages.
  • The NEMA 3R-rated enclosure houses and protects the unit’s electrical components in inclement weather. This weather-proof enclosure is resistant to rain, ice, snow, dirt, dust, sand, and other extreme weather conditions, with an operating temperature range of -40 to 55° Celsius (-40 to 131° Fahrenheit). Autel says it built the AC Ultra’s charging cable and connector to withstand drops even when subjected to extreme temperatures.
