Charging infrastructure you can rely on

Ladeinfrastruktur_imagebild_mobil

As we all strive to reduce CO2 emissions and protect our environment, electromobility or e-mobility is being progressed on a global scale. A widespread charging infrastructure is an absolute must have prerequisite to meet the electromobility goals that have been set. 2020 was a landmark turning point for the auto industry because almost every automotive manufacturing company across the world accelerated its efforts to increase its e-mobility offering.

Electromobility will change how we go about our everyday lives and will have a radical impact on how we refuel/recharge our vehicles. In most cases, vehicles will not be charged in charging centres (similar to filling stations), but simply wherever they are parked – be that at work, home or even at the supermarket. Charging infrastructure is required, therefore, wherever vehicles are parked which means that charging capability needs to be established and visible in our everyday surroundings.

"Charging infrastructure – From the need of electromobility to designing low-voltage power distribution"

Electromobility is clearly picking up speed – not least thanks to subsidies from the German government. The expansion of charging networks is actively helping to mitigate some of the current issues of range, infrastructure and costs.

But how does the electricity actually get to the charging station? Rittal supports the configuration of a tested low-voltage main distribution system for your charging centre with the software Power Engineering. Whether you are planning a multi-storey car park, a network of rapid charging stations or a car park for your employees and customers – Rittal offers everything from a single source from Power Engineering software to all the system components required to complete such a project.


We will show you how to configure the right power supply  for your charging infrastructure in simple steps, including design approval and all with certified components.

White paper

Given how closely intertwined charging centre infrastructure will become in our day-to-day lives, the demand for them is clear. Offering IK-rated impact protection and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) shielding, our enclosures help keep you safe and secure.

Our white paper brings you up to date on the latest developments, providing you with information about test procedures, statutory requirements and applicable standards to be complied with.

 

"IK-Code: impact protection in accordance with the IEC 62 262 standard"

  "EMC for the control and power distribution systems of machinery and epuipment"
Read our IK code white paper to discover everything you need to know about impact protection in line with the IEC 62 262 standard.
  Discover how electrical equipment can be made as safe as possible for users, how to plan, install and operate it – without interrupting overall operations and ensuring continuous availability of the entire system.

Customised solutions for all requirements
The configuration of a charging centre

Most charging centres for electric vehicles comprise a transformer station, an outdoor battery storage unit (depending on the layout), a low-voltage main distributor, infrastructur enclosures for the power electronics and the charging pillars themselves.

Rittal offers the ideal solution for all components.

 

  • Efficient system fit-out thanks to the selection of the correct frame profile
  • Modular system – from mechanical components to power distribution and climate control
  • Double-walled outdoor enclosures for optimum weather protection
  • Sophisticated climate-control solutions for maintaining optimum temperature and consistent heat distribution regardless of the weather-type in powerful 350 kW rapid charging stations

The set-up is not affected by a charging station’s charging capacity, which can be up to 22 kW per charging point in the normal charging range, greater than 22 kW per charging point in the rapid charging range, and 150+ kW per charging point in the high-power charging range.

Optimum performance for chargers

Rittal offers suitable enclosure solutions for charging pillars as standard enclosures for industrial applications or in bespoke designs.

Transformers in enclosures

The transformer station is where the current from the medium-voltage network is converted into the electric voltage used by low-voltage networks. Low-voltage main distributors with Ri4Power and the RiLine portfolio from Rittal are ideal in this circumstance.

Powered by electricity from the start

In addition to solar and wind power, electromobility can also be powered by fossil fuel sources. Rittal supplies turnkey system solutions and control cabinets for wind farms and generator terminal boxes for solar panels.

A second life for car batteries

If the power density of a battery starts to give out to the extent that the electric vehicle can no longer rely on an adequate power supply, the battery can instead be used for example as an alternative power supply for a charging station itself. Depending on its purpose, these batteries are housed in either an indoor or outdoor enclosure.

Electronics under one roof

The power electronics provide the supply for multiple charging points and therefore need to be well protected. Various climate-control solutions and installation with 19" mounting frame and assembly plates can be implemented in one secure housing.

Power saved

One container for everything. To establish a complete energy storage infrastructure, Rittal offers preassembled containers with everything from racks and battery mounts to the required climate-control systems.
