Eaton's Pow-R-Station Level 2 electric vehicle charging station. The most robust, flexible offering of EVSE on the market

Eaton's Pow-R-Station Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations supply the connection to the grid where vehicles park-street-side, garage or parking lot-and provide the car's onboard charger with the electricity it needs to refill the battery in as little as four hours.

Flexibility for an emerging market

Whether you have a fleet of electric vehicles or you want to provide a place to plug in away from the home, Eaton has an electric vehicle charging station targeted to meet your commercial needs. The Level 2 Pow-R-Station electric vehicle charging station is NEMAT 3R rated-suitable for indoor or outdoor use-and is housed in a heavy-duty aluminum enclosure with a powdercoat paint and metallic silver finish for durability and long life. The charging station can be wallmounted or it can be configured as a freestanding pedestal. Each Level 2 Pow-R-Station EVSE was designed with the growing market in mind, equipped with a field upgradable device panel for exterior mounted options and a standard interior layout for easy upgrading to network-enabled solutions and wireless communication options.

User safety

When the driver connects the standard J1772EE connector to the electric vehicle, the charging station confirms that it is an electric vehicle by "waking it up" by communicating through one of the pins in the connector. Until the vehicle has confirmed it is connected to an EVSE, the five pins on the connector have no AC power. In addition to the solid handshake communications, the charging stations have been tested to ensure compliance with the applicable ULT and CSAT safety standards for EVSE.

Customized management with ChargePoint

The Level 2 Pow-R-Station EVSE is now available on the ChargePoint Network, the largest online global charging network. ChargePoint combines remote management, access control and payment options into one easy-to-manage system. This network automatically upgrades charging systems, tracks usage and costs, and easily manages payment collection via credit card or ChargePoint card. Additionally, this nationwide network has the capability to lead drivers directly to your unoccupied stations and includes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week driver support via a website or smartphone application. ChargePoint service plans are cloud-based solutions that provide everything needed to manage successful EV charging operations including flexible tools, rich data, payment processing and driver support. Station-based service plans are available for the corporate, commercial, and utility industries. In addition, a service plan is available to manage electric vehicle fleets.

Remote management and access control

The Level 2 Pow-R-Station EVSE is equipped with native RS-485 communications, allowing for integration into a building's energy management system (EMS) via ModbusT RTU to manage the charging station's deployment with status and usage statistics for the whole facility. With standard onboard memory, the EVSE can record approximately 30 days of a subset of usage data and ongoing statistics. This history can be extended by inserting an SD card into the internal memory slot for local data collection of up to 2 GB of data, which would be equivalent to one year of reporting.

Optionally, the station can be networked with other power stations using Eaton's Network Manager software as a service. With Network Manager, the power stations can be managed by one entity, a group of users or a third-party via an easy-touse web-based portal to provide remote-management services for the charging station or network. Connectivity options for enabling Network Manager include hardwired ethernet, Wi-Fi and cellular (GSM/GPRS).

Eaton has thoughtfully selected a wide-range of access control and payment options to support a successful deployment of charging stations including but not limited to:

  • Outdoor-rated credit card swipe
  • Locally managed secure access RFID
  • RFID with user identification
  • Synchronous-code keypads

All of the above mentioned methods can be incorporated per each EVSE or on a centralized payment or access control kiosk. Eaton's Smart Start kiosk can support up to 32 Level 2 charging stations up to a distance of 4000 feet.
