The system for supplying electricity to charging stations.
Installing charging stations for electric cars in public parking garages, office buildings, and shopping centers is one of the current challenges facing planners and installers. High currents have to be distributed safely without disturbing the existing installation. Often in existing buildings the space required for this application has not been taken into account. And it needs to be easy to extend the installation to accommodate the foreseeable increasing demand for additional charging stations. As a result, a supposedly simple installation soon becomes a complex task. The podis® power bus system from Wieland Electric helps to implement the distribution of energy to charging stations quickly and easily.
This decentralized energy distribution system allows a large number of charging stations to be connected with just one supply cable. This saves installation time, requires less cable, and considerably reduces the size of the distribution cabinet. The connection components for the feed or power tap can be installed anywhere in the power bus. The connecting modules can be positioned quickly and flexibly using the insulation-piercing contacts of the podis® components. Here the contacts are screwed in through the sheath of the cable and the core insulation in order to make contact with the conductors in the cable. This beneficial method removes the need for any cutting, baring, and stripping.
The feed to the power bus can be placed freely - including in the center, enabling an ideal balance of the load on the power bus. This means that the number of charging stations on a section of flat cable can be increased without overloading the cable. The modules for the energy tap can be placed anywhere at any time. As a result, extensions are also easy and require no major effort. What is unique is that these tap modules are available for both fixed and pluggable installation. This provides crucial benefits if a charging station has to be replaced. With no complex installation, the charging station can be replaced in a matter of minutes.
