Fuji Electric Corporation of America will incorporate Coulomb Technologies’ ChargePoint Network into its soon-to-be released DC Quick Charging Stations.
Including the ChargePoint Network means the stations will be able to connect and communicate with all ChargePoint mobile phone applications for iPhone, Android and Blackberry.
These ChargePoint mobile apps provide an easy way to locate stations near any specified address and get turn-by-turn directions. Additionally, these applications allow drivers to utilize ChargePoint Network’s station reservation feature. Drivers can locate stations, and then make, view and cancel a reservation time slot directly from a smart phone. EV drivers can access features including the ability to: help with trip planning, manage the cost of charging, and find and operate public ChargePoint-enabled stations.
Fuji Electric’s 25-kw chargers provide a full charge to electric vehicles in approximately 60 minutes.
The Fuji Electric charging stations are to be released in the U.S. later this year, and will offer electric vehicle drivers and station owners alike the convenience of accessing all the advanced functionality of the ChargePoint Network.
