Germany forerunner in using parking terminals to charge electric vehicles

One characteristic of Cale terminals is that they are incredibly versatile and can be used for a whole range of purposes other than simply in parking applications. A further advantage is that they are very easily integrated with other systems.

One example of this successful integration in Germany is with Mennekes for the charging of electric vehicles, which makes it possible to charge your car whilst parked. The solution is very user friendly and the customer pays by card or with coins. “It is possible to charge up to eight vehicles at the same time with just one Cale terminal”, says Managing Director of Cale Deutschland, Reinhard Kipka.

An integrated thermal management unit controls the temperature so that there is sufficient ventilation. Another control unit is also integrated which automatically shuts charging off if insufficient electricity is available.

There has been tremendous interest in this solution at many technical exhibitions”, says Mr Kipka.
