ZAPTEC: is launching charging on IT 3-phase for larger charging systems

  • Sector: Infrastructure
  • Date: November 21, 2019

  • Company: Zaptec is world-leading on smart charging systems for electric cars in housing co-operatives, businesses and at home.

ZAPTEC er verdensledende på smarte ladesystemer for elbiler i borettslag, bedrifter og hjemme.
ZAPTEC is the first to launch three-phase charging on the IT grid. All ZAPTEC Pro systems used in larger charging stations will also now support three-phase charging on the IT grid. Owners of ZAPTEC Go will be able to charge faster while ensuring that power metering is correct on all phases.

We are delighted to offer many of our major customers even faster charging for their electric vehicles. When you buy ZAPTEC, we want this to be synonymous with our vision to provide the smartest, fastest and safest charging on the market, says Knut Braut, ZAPTEC’s Chief Technology Officer.

In Norway, there are two types of power grid: the IT grid with 230 volts and the TN grid with 400 volts. IT grids are not widely used elsewhere in the world, which means that vehicle manufacturers have not made it a priority.

This function is only available for EVs which support it. At the moment, we know that the following models will support three-phase charging on the IT grid: 

Tesla Model X
Tesla Model S
Tesla Model 3
Audi e-tron
Mercedes EQ
Nyere modeller av Volkswagen e-golf
