The German ‘Eichrecht’ law defines requirements for all measuring devices such as petrol pumps and electricity meters. For Sungrow, this involves ensuring that its electricity meters always align the delivered quantities with the actual volume.
With this certification, the company can now guarantee a transparent measurement and billing process for all IDC180E end users, enabling the charging station to be used in semi-public and public areas across both Germany and Austria.
“This is a significant milestone for Sungrow. Germany and Austria are leading markets for electric vehicles and with our Eichrecht-compliant DC fast chargers, we ensure that each user is charged for the exact kWh consumed. Our station has passed the most sophisticated test procedure in Europe so far, with respect to accuracy standards and meeting regional requirements,” commented Robert von Wahl, Director for Charging, Europe.
The milestone is particularly significant since the IDC180E now has a charging range of 120-180 kW. This allows an EV to charge at a much lower density, while the charging process still applies to an average EV increase usual for high-power DC charging for breaks.
The IDC180E comes with an operating temperature range of -35 °C to +55 °C, a multi-language system including English, Spanish, German, French and Dutch, and a 3-year warranty.
