Siemens introduces EV charging stations for homes and businesses

Siemens Industry, Inc., the U.S. affiliate of Siemens (Munich, Germany), an electrical engineering company, announced on Monday a new line of electrical vehicle (EV) charging stations designed for home and business owners.

Intended to be part of a smart home environment, Siemens VersiCharge charging stations are Level 2, meaning it can recharge an electric vehicle in two to six hours, and uses 240 volts of power. According to Siemens, there are two models, the VersiCharge and VersiCharge SG.

Both VersiCharge models can be used for indoor or outdoor service and feature a plate-based mounting system, according to Siemens. This feature allows installers four 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.

The VersiCharge model indicates charging activity from a distance through a simple multi-color indicator and features a 20-foot cord, according to Siemens. Full-function user controls feature a delay for postponing charge cycles after sundown when electricity rates typically decline.

VersiCharge SG, a model designed for network connectivity, integrates communications for applications where data and two-way communication are needed to support smart-grid, business or other operational requirements. The VersiCharge SG model features two ways to communicate: built in ZigBee wireless, and user addable Wi-Fi through an internal expansion port.
