Charging infrastructure provider SemaConnect, usually in the B2B area, presents its first consumer product, the Series 4 EV Home Charger. The company has opened the order books for the Level 2 charging station and expects shipping to start in December.
For technical data, SemaConnect says the charging station can be configured from 16 – 50 amps, enough to provide up to 37 miles of range per charging hour. Equipment includes a 25-foot cable (nearly 8 metres) cable and a J-1772 plug. The company adds, the NEMA 14-50 plug would make installation easy in a home garage.
Homeowners will also get access to the SemaConnect Network so they can schedule charging for off-peak electrical rates, start and stop charging sessions remotely, and view charging status through the SemaConnect app.
Being made available to consumers, the charging station “marks an exciting expansion beyond our commercial customer base,” said Stephen Carroll, vice president of marketing at SemaConnect. Still, he added that commercial fleet managers would be able to connect the Series 4 to their SemaConnect Fleet Management Portal.
The company is taking pre-orders for $699 online and aims to list them on Amazon in future. SemaConnect further expects the new charging station to be ready to ship to customers in December but said nothing about installation or partners to do so. There is, however, no assembly required and the Series 4 ships with a wall-mount bracket.
SemaConnect is known as an infrastructure provider to partners such as Volkswagen’s Electrify America, General Motors or PG&E, among others.
