Silver Atena and Bender Group are presenting a product family of calibration-compliant, bidirectional and smart-home-capable DC charging stations “Made in Germany” under the iONiX brand at eMove 360° Europe in Berlin from 5 to 7 October.
With the iONiX, the aim was to develop a charging station that combines fast charging with intuitive usability, fits perfectly into all environments in terms of appearance and opens up a wide range of possible uses in private and public spaces with many clever features. The iONiX offers two modular variants and covers fast DC charging with 25 or 50 kW. The slim, attractive design is an eye-catcher at the roadside, which increases user acceptance and design options for operators or, for example, urban planners. The extremely quiet operation (at the house/residential areas) and customised design options also contribute to this. Operators of charging parks, car parks or shopping centres benefit not only from the remote maintainability, but especially from the iONiX’s integrated dynamic load management, with which multiple charging stations can be operated efficiently – also in combination with in-house AC chargers and even across manufacturers.
The charging station offers numerous billing options from credit card to the convenient Plug&Charge solution. For the customer, this means: quickly plugged in, simply paid. An optional, individually playable large display opens up new marketing opportunities for advertisers. For energy-conscious private users, the iONiX is the perfect charging station thanks to its distinctive smart home capability and optional bidirectionality for feeding energy back from the vehicle into the home energy ecosystem. All in all, a sophisticated charging station that leaves nothing to be desired, both technically and visually.
