Charging Systems

Public-Use Charging Stand (Charging Infrastructure)

The charging stand is the public-use charging equipment for plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). This stand features enhanced safety and management support functions as well as an attached charging cable, making it ideal for installation in public places.
It is also equipped with communication functions, enabling centralized management from a data center of charging facility use status and operational status as well as 24-hour remote monitoring for troubles. IC cards can be used for user authentication and billing.
The stand can also charge multiple vehicles using a multiple charging system.

Home-Use Charging Unit (Charging Infrastructure)

This is a home-use charging unit for plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) and electric vehicles (EVs).
There are two types of home-use charging units available. The wall-mounted type is suitable for garage use, or if the parking space is adjacent to the house. The pole-mounted type is suitable if the parking space is away from the house.
Like the public-use charging stand, the home-use charging unit is equipped with a charging cable. This eliminates the trouble to set the cable when the vehicle is charged.

On-Board Charger

The on-board charger converts household AC voltage into DC voltage to charge the high-voltage batteries of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). It accepts a wide range of voltages. This allows it to be used not only in Japan but throughout the world.
