AUBURN, Calif., Sept. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ClipperCreek, a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), just announced its new ruggedized dual electric vehicle (EV) charging station solution, the HCS-D40R. The HCS-D40R is a 32 Amp, level 2 hardwired station that installs onto a single dedicated 40A circuit and can charge two vehicles simultaneously. The HCS-D40R automatically splits power between two vehicles based on the vehicles’ requests for power, with up to 16 Amps of electricity each when both are charging and up to 32 Amps when one vehicle is charging.
The HCS-D40R features two rubber overmolded crush and impact resistant J1772 universal connectors and a 5 year warranty as well as ClipperCreek’s standard best-in-class features including 25 foot charging cables, and a rugged, fully sealed NEMA 4 enclosure. The HCS-D40R dual charging station is available for $1,549 from ClipperCreek. The HCS-D40R is an affordable solution designed for fleet, parking lot, heavy usage applications and extreme weather conditions. The Ruggedized option is offered at an excellent value of only $200 over the affordable base price of $1349 for the hardwired HCS-D40.
The HCS-D40R requires no assembly and comes ready for wall mount installation, or can be mounted on one of several free-standing pedestal options. The ClipperCreek Pro Mount Duo (PMD-10) pedestal can support up to two HCS-D40R stations, allowing up to 4 vehicles to charge simultaneously from a single pedestal. “This dual station saves valuable space and electrical capacity for parking facilities, while also offering a valuable amenity as EV adoption surges,” said Will Barrett, Director of Sales at ClipperCreek.
“We continue to develop products that reflect our commitment to advancing electric vehicles and bring the greatest value to our customers. The dual station gives property owners an opportunity to offer double the number of charging spaces they would otherwise be able to support, and does so affordably,” said Jason France, President and Founder of ClipperCreek. “In the 25 years we’ve been building stations for commercial use, we’ve found the connector can take a real beating in some environments. Customers have asked for an even tougher connector option. In response, we developed this overmolded connector with a replaceable latch. We stand behind this connector’s durability by pairing it with a 5 year product warranty.”
The HCS-D40R qualifies for ClipperCreek’s “Trade-UP” program. For a limited time, consumers who purchase the HCS Dual charging station can sell their functioning used HCS-40, HCS-40R or HCS-40P back to ClipperCreek for $250. The new HCS-D40R mounts to the same bolt pattern and utilizes the same service, making the upgrade both easy and affordable. Complete terms and conditions can be found at www.clippercreek.com/trade-up.
“The HCS-D40R is a great value and an exciting product offering at the right time for the industry because it allows sites to double the number of charging spots without electrical infrastructure upgrades. The HCS-D40R will provide value at any location where more EV charging spaces are needed,” said Barrett. “Combining the HCS-D40R launch with the HCS-40 Trade-UP program allows existing HCS-40 customers to swap out their original station for a dual station at a significant savings, all while using the same circuit. We think this is a great solution for many commercial and residential customers.”
