Eaton announces new fleet charging approach

The company said its overhead EV Charging Busway enables fleets to expand and reconfigure infrastructure with no concrete work required.

Eaton announced a new approach to electric vehicle (EV) fleet charging by eliminating cable runs and major modifications to existing parking and conveyor structures. The company said its overhead EV Charging Busway enables fleets to expand and reconfigure infrastructure with no concrete work required.

According to Eaton, its EV Charging Busway provides a plug-and-play solution to add, move and expand charging infrastructure without rewiring. The solution incorporates a retractable cable management system for AC Level 2 chargers that keeps cords and electrical equipment off the ground and out of the way. EV charging busways can also support ground-mounted DC fast charging pedestals.

More than 50% of companies plan to decarbonize their fleets by 2027. Eaton said it is using common electrical distribution technology deployed in fleet depots, buildings and industrial settings without traditional charging pedestals.

Eaton added its chargers also can be integrated with the company’s Charging Network Manager software out of the box to further simplify the deployment and management of networked charging stations.
