Charge more cars, faster, with Express Plus.
Express Plus was designed to meet requirements for ultra-fast DC charging today and well into the future with a unique platform architecture that grows with demand. Station owners can start small and expand to the highest charging capacity in the industry without any stranded investment by adding Power Modules, Stations and Power Cubes as demand increases. The diagrams in the photo section show how ultra-fast Express Plus charging sites evolve over time without forklift upgrades or stranded investment.
Innovative Features of Express Plus
Speed: Express Plus is capable of delivering up to 400 kW to a single vehicle. The modular architecture scales as demand for power increases.
Dynamic Power Sharing: Utility connections can be oversubscribed and power is intelligently allocated among vehicles based on each battery’s state of charge (SoC) and instantaneous maximum charge rate. Every car always charges as fast as possible to minimize driver wait times.
Driver-Friendly Stations: Large format 20” LED display signals station status from a distance, 10” LCD touchscreen for driver interaction and display of car charging status, instructional videos and more. Integrated cameras enhance security and area lighting improves safety at night. Swing arms make it easy to reach vehicle charging ports in any location and keep them off the ground.
Cost-Effective Operations: Station owners can start small and expand to the highest charging capacity in the industry without any stranded investment by adding Power Modules, Stations and Power Cubes as demand increases. High-efficiency power conversion (> 96% efficiency) reduces electricity costs and wasted energy.
Universal Compatibility: Any EV with fast charging capabilities can be accommodated with up to three different connector types, configurable per station.
Serviceability: Modular components are field installable without any specialized tools or expertise.
Low Maintenance Costs: Minimal moving parts and liquid cooling technology increase reliability and minimize ongoing field service for maintenance.
High Availability: ChargePoint support monitors power modules and stations remotely 24/7. Intelligent diagnostics and machine learning techniques predictively prevent failures and ensure stations are always available for drivers.
Liquid Cooled Cables:
Proprietary liquid cooling technology makes charging cables incredibly flexible and lightweight, so they’re easy for drivers to handle.
