Charging stations rather than petrol stations —
in urban environments, public charging stations for electric
vehicles are increasingly in demand. To help create a charging infrastructure
over a sufficient wide area, Selux luminaire poles are converted from
pure lighting structures into all-round smart systems. Charge + Light, charge point and luminaire pole are fused into one.
pole/charging station blends perfectly into all urban
environments — as a harmonious element in historical town centres or with
modern styles of architecture.
poles can be pre-fitted with charging stations for electric vehicles simply and
at low cost. The charging station is integrated directly on the pole to enable
electric vehicles parked in front of it to be recharged.
The charging station is secured to the luminaire
pole with bolts while the connecting cable is integrated into the pole housing.
The charging station is bolted onto an adapter rail that is clamped to the pole. The connecting cable for the charging station is then routed through the adapter rail. This installation method is particulary suitable for existing poles that are already in place since there is no need to drill holes in to the pole.
Charge + Light systems or separate charging stations can be installed in urban spaces such as residential or commercial streets or public parking areas.
For use in car parks at hotels, supermarkets, leisure facilities or local authority facilities which are publicly accessible.
Can be installed
in private parking spaces, car ports or garages.
The smart charge
controller in Selux charging stations allows communication and IT backend integration. An integrated
smart meter enables simple connection to the public electricity grid. The
charging socket is also fitted with shutters to protect it from vandalism and
can be identified using an RFID chip card if required (Radio-Frequency
Identification): The card is simply held against the relevant symbol on the
an RFID card can also access the charging station using their smartphones by simply
scanning in a QR code on the side of the charging station.
Is it yellow, blue
or red? Flashing or constantly illuminated? The LED light ring shows the the
charging station's current operating state. Display and control elements are
simple and intuitive to understand.
The Selux charging station is equipped with a standard port (type 2 charging socket) for electrical vehicles for single-phase or three-phase AC current charging. Multi-phase charging speeds up the charging time. Conventional charging capacities are between 3.7 kW (single-phase with up to 16A) and 22 kW (three-pase with up to 32A). The charging time for an electric car depends on various factors such as the battery capacity and its charge state, the vehicle´s charging equipment, the type of charging station and how this is equipped.
