Siemens introduces VersiCharge electric vehicle charging stations
Offering flexibility in wiring, communication and charging time, the Siemens VersiCharge offers homeowners a solution for charging electric vehicles
Atlanta, July 18, 2011 — Siemens Industry, Inc. announced its new VersiCharge line of electrical vehicle charging stations designed for home owners. VersiCharge EV charging stations will be available through Siemens' sales channels by the end of the year.
Offering flexibility in wiring, communication and charging time, the Siemens VersiCharge offers homeowners a solution for charging electric vehicles. VersiCharge adds residential charging to the existing Siemens portfolio of commercial, fleet and municipal charging solutions.
The Siemens VersiCharge charging stations offer residential and commercial users simple, safe and affordable access to charging while incorporating features that support a stable and reliable electrical grid.
Intended to be an integral part of a smart home's sustainable, energy-efficient environment, Siemens VersiCharge charging stations are Level 2, ready for 240V service and are available in two models, VersiCharge and VersiCharge SG.
Both VersiCharge models are weather-proofed for indoor or outdoor service and feature a flexible, plate-based mounting system. This feature allows installers four simple options for wiring: hard wired from behind, 240 V Dryer Plug from behind (both hidden from view), bottom fed conduit, and external 240 V Dryer Plug.
VersiCharge indicates charging activity from a distance through a simple multi-color indicator and features a 20-foot cord, with longer lengths available as accessories. Full-function user controls feature a delay, familiar to most consumers, for postponing charge cycles after sundown when electricity rates typically decline.
