Gravity EV chargers achieve first UL certification

UL Solutions certifies Gravity's 500 kW EV chargers under UL 2202, verifying safety, reliability and performance.

UL Solutions announced that the 500 kilowatt (kW) electric vehicle (EV) chargers and power cabinets from Gravity are the first 500 kW systems to achieve UL certification to UL 2202, according to the Standard for Safety for Direct Current (DC) Charging Equipment for Electric Vehicles. Gravity, an EV infrastructure firm, is installing 24 of these UL-Certified charging systems at its new facility in Midtown Manhattan in New York City.

“This achievement reinforces UL Solutions’ growth and focus on capabilities to serve the EV market with services that help increase confidence in the performance, reliability and safety of products,” said Milan Dotlich, vice president and general manager of the Energy and Industrial Automation Group at UL Solutions. “We are proud to have a part in Gravity’s journey to meet the demand for higher power and faster charging speeds in EV charging equipment.”

UL Solutions said it evaluated and tested six chargers and two power cabinets from Gravity to assess compliance with the safety and performance requirements of UL 2202. This includes requirements for factors such as power verification, strength of materials, protection from sharp edges, stability and mounting, which help protect users from risks while charging their EV. Gravity’s certified products also underwent a wide range of performance tests before achieving certification to UL 2202.
