Taiwan-based Delta Electronics has launched its 500 kW DC Ultra-fast EV Charger, namely the UFC 500. With remarkable power versus footprint ratio, the system can charge one heavy duty electric vehicle (e-truck/e-Bus) with large battery capacity at 460 kW power within 2 hours, which, on average, result in a driving range for a full-day operation.

“The UFC 500 delivers ultra-fast charging capabilities and, through integration with our own EV charging management system DeltaGrid® EVM and energy storage solutions, significantly reduces pressure to the grid. This powerful combination exemplifies the perfect fusion of EV charging and smart energy management solutions, excelling in performance and efficiency to fulfil CPOs’ immediate and future charging requirements”, commented Vincent Lin, Vice President of eMobility and Smart Energy Solutions at Delta EMEA.

The UFC 500 charging system from Delta Electronics

The UFC 500’s cutting-edge power module utilises silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor technology, a compound of silicon and carbon, to ensure high overall conversion efficiency. Moreover, the UFC 500 simplifies setup and management, proving to be a durable, long-term investment. Its robust, all-weather exterior design meets IP55 and IK10 standards, ensuring reliability and high service availability even in the most demanding conditions.

In public charging applications, the simultaneous charging of 2 modern EV’s can get the charging power up to 250 kW each, which is most attractive charging service offering from end user perspective. In addition to heavy-duty vehicles, the UFC 500 is suited to a broad spectrum of passenger EVs and charging applications in fleet-, depot-, logistic-, industrial- and public charging installations.
