The charging time always depends on the power rating of the charger in the vehicle and the power rating of the home charging station. If you want to be able to recharge your vehicle quickly, then pay attention to the charger power rating when selecting an electric vehicle. The higher the electric vehicle’s power rating, the faster the battery is recharged.
For example, a compact car with a 22 kWh battery can be recharged in approximately one hour with a 22 kW AMTRON® home charging station, so long as the charger on board the vehicle
supports charging with 22 kW. The same vehicle can also be recharged with a 3.7 kW home charging station.
It is a good idea to match the charging power rating of your home charging station to that of the vehicle. However a home charging station with a maximum charging power of 22 kW offers you the greatest possible flexibility. With a charging station of this capacity you can charge all electric vehicles. Regardless of whether they have a 3.7 kW, 7.4 kW, 11 kW or 22 kW charger on board. Ask your electrician to determine what power load is available to you.
There are little details that make all the difference. The AMTRON® home charging stations combine modern design with outstanding functionality. All versions of the home charging stations offer easy cable suspension and LED operating status display. Additional useful functions are optional. Thus you can select the AMTRON® that is right for your individual requirements.
Cable handling. The modern and functional design, intelligently integrates practical and convenient cable suspension. This eliminates the usual cable clutter.
Operating status. The operating status of the AMTRON® is displayed via intuitive LED icons. Standby, charging, processing, and error are indicated by four back-lit symbols in the colors blue, green, white, and red.
What system does your electric vehicle have? If it is the MENNEKES system (Type 2), we recommend AMTRON® with a permanently connected charging cable 7.5 m in length. If it is Type 1, take the appropriate counterpart. If you want to stay flexible, take AMTRON® with charging socket.
The AMTRON® home charging stations are available in four power classes: 3.7 kW, 7.4 kW, 11 kW, and 22 kW. The shortest charging time and greatest flexibility are offered by the AMTRON® home charging station with 22 kW. Ask your electrician to determine the connection power load available to you. See page 14 for additional information.
For devices without access control you end the charging process with a light touch of this button. In addition, you can easily reset the residual current device (RCD) directly on the charger.
