AeroVironment Unveils New TurboDX Next-Gen EV Charging Solution

| January 10, 2018

Charging Solution

AeroVironment, a leader in electric vehicle (EV) charging, has introduced TurboDX, the company’s next-generation EV charging solution for commercial, workplace, utility and residential customers.

According to Ken Karklin, vice president and general manager of AeroVironment’s Efficient Energy Systems business segment, “TurboDX can be easily configured to address the specific needs of employers, landlords, individual homeowners and property managers who need a flexible solution for maximizing the charging demands of their EV driving staff, tenants and patrons.”

The TurboDX global EV charging solution has been certified by Underwriters Laboratory to North American UL Standards for safety and reliability. European variants are certified to IEC standards and bear the CE Mark, and the Chinese configurations have met the rigorous, CQC certification.

An OEM-branded version of the TurboDX has commenced manufacturing in China and will ship to customers starting in January. TurboDX, which builds on the trusted, tested and robust technology of AeroVironment’s popular TurboCord charging system, is an open networked solution that gives customers the flexibility to choose from a variety of Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) compliant network providers based on their needs and demands. It further enables customers to change their network provider easily, without the added cost of switching or purchasing new hardware.

In addition, TurboDX accommodates a triple, dual or quad installation that allows more cars to charge simultaneously. TurboDX’s modular design also makes it easy to expand the number of chargers as needed over time.

TurboDX offers the same Bluetooth-enabled access control currently available on AeroVironment’s TurboDock, allowing a site owner to control access to charging stations through a non-networked, mobile access control option.

The product features a durable, cast aluminum enclosure and significant thermal margins and designed to work under even the harshest conditions.

Its thermal management algorithm allows a connected vehicle to charge during high ambient temperature conditions while continuously monitoring the charging session to ensure safe operation.

TurboDX launched in both 16- and 32-amp versions (240-volts) with the option for 15-foot or 25-foot cords. Its slim, compact design gives EV drivers the added convenience of mounting TurboDX practically anywhere.

TurboDX has already started shipping for OEM, commercial, workplace and utility customers.

It will be available for purchase online from Amazon, evsolutions.com and homedepot.com beginning in the first calendar quarter at a manufacturers’ suggested retail price (MSRP) of $469 for 16-amps.
