The problems caused by charging piles become more and more frequent with the increase of vehicles, but in daily life, do you know what types of charging piles are there? Here's an introduction to the types of charging piles that we commonly see.
Vertical charging piles are suitable for outdoor parking spaces or residential parking spaces without relying on the wall, while wall-mounted charging piles must be fixed by the wall, and are suitable for indoor and underground parking spaces.
Public charging piles are set up by public service organizations such as government agencies, and the service targets are for any electric vehicle owners, such as public parking lots.
Most of the special charging piles are built by enterprises, serving customers and insiders, such as shopping mall parking lots.
Self-use charging piles are private charging piles, installed in private areas and not open to the public.
The protection level of indoor charging pile needs to reach at least IP32, while outdoor charging pile needs to face the harsh environment of wind and rain, which requires better insulation and lightning protection conditions. Its protection level needs to reach at least IP54 to ensure personal safety, car body safety and charging equipment safety.
(IP is an international code used to identify the protection level. The IP level consists of two numbers, the first of which means dustproof; The second number is waterproof, and the larger the number, the better the protection level. )
At present, one charging pile is the main charging pile in the market. In large parking lots such as bus parking lots, multiple charging piles are needed to support the charging of multiple electric vehicles simultaneously, which not only speeds up the charging efficiency, but also saves labor.
AC charging piles generally have low current, small pile body, flexible installation and 6-8 hours of full charge. They are suitable for small passenger electric vehicles, and are mostly used in public parking lots, shopping malls and community garages. Domestic charging piles are also mostly AC charging piles. However, DC charging piles generally have high current, larger charging capacity in a short time, larger pile body and larger occupied area (heat dissipation). The DC charging pile is suitable for fast DC charging of electric buses, CMB, hybrid buses, electric cars, taxis, engineering vehicles, etc.
