The Frankfurt-based European Electrical Bus Company (EEBC) now offers mobile high-voltage chargers for depots in four performance classes. With the four devices of the MDCC line, electric cars, electric buses and electric trucks can be charged via CCS with 22, 44, 75 or 150 kW.
The devices cover the voltage range from 200 to 750 volts and so they can be used for as many different vehicles as possible. While many electric cars operate in the range between 300 and 400 volts due to the widespread public charging structure, other vehicles can also use higher voltages. From 2021, devices with an extended voltage range of 200 to 1,000 volts will also be available.
The company sees workshops and vehicle workshops as the area of application for the mobile DC chargers. However, they can also be used for tests, demonstrations and presentations – if no suitable infrastructure is available on site. The devices themselves are supplied with three-phase current via CEE connections and act as an intermediary between the power grid and the e-vehicles.
All models have a display that should be easy to read even in sunlight. The handles for pushing the devices also serve as cable holders. With the large wheels, it should be possible to “effortlessly negotiate edges and heels in mobile use”, the company stated in a press release. However, the units are not light – even the smallest model already weighs 43 kilograms, the MDCC 75 weighs around 140 kilograms.
The mobile charging units meet both the old DIN SPEC 70121 and the new ISO 15118 standard. According to EEBC, however, “short-term customer-specific adaptations” are also possible if the vehicle deviates from these standards. Other options such as cable length, colour scheme and equipment can also be adapted on request.
EEBC was founded in 2013 as a consulting company for electromobility solutions in the field of local public transport. In 2019, a new division for the development and marketing of DC chargers was established in addition to the service. In this way, the company wants to offer solutions “besides the niche public transport” for all other branches of the vehicle industry.
