ABB has received the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listing for its Terra 51 direct current (DC) fast charger. The certification demonstrates compliance with North American safety directives, including the requirements of UL 2202, Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging System Equipment, and CSA C22.2 No. 107.1-01, General Use Power Supplies, designed to ensure safety of electrical equipment. The Terra 51 is also compliant with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Federal Code of Regulation (CFR) Parts 15B and 15C, pertaining to radio and frequency emitting devices.
The Terra 51 is an intelligent DC fast charger that reduces EV charging times from eight hours to as little as 15 to 30 minutes ABB’s chargers can be connected to any charging network or community via the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), the widely adopted international open networking standard for charging equipment. Terra 51 fast chargers, and future products, will support all existing and future connection standards and communication protocols to drive the continued growth of EV infrastructure in the North American market.
