Applus+ IDIADA the first European company accredited to certify CHAdeMO chargers

26/03/2014

Applus+ IDIADA is the first European company accredited to certify CHAdeMO chargers

Applus+ IDIADA  is the only accredited company that counts on an EV charging simulator within its facilities. The simulator, developed internally by Applus+ IDIADA, is capable of running 140 different test items within 3 hours in order to validate the correct reactions of a CHAdeMO quick charger for a safe use according the specifications. Applus+ IDIADA’s EV charging simulator can also be used to validate COMBO chargers and AC mode 3 chargers.
 
Mrs. Tomoko Blech, Representative of the CHAdeMO Association in Europe, commented that “fast charging is the key for electric mobility. It allows opportunity charging in different public places and reassures drivers to drive longer distance”.  As of February 11th there are already 3.553 CHAdeMO chargers installed, mainly in Europe and Japan.
 
Klaus Kersting, Applus IDIADA Product Manager for EV/HEV Powertrain said that “the electric vehicle is a reality, and at IDIADA we have to be at the forefront of all EV technologies in order to fulfill our client’s requirements”.
