The Hydra Echo EV Charger comes at a time of a huge boom in EV sales and wider use. We have designed the Hydra Echo to be durable, easy to use and with a streamlined installation process for use in any commercial environment such as office or industrial workshop or distribution hub car park.
The Echo has a built in RFID card-reader which allows access to the charger and its functions and a digital screen for monitoring progress of the vehicle charge status. Available in either 7kW and 22kW charge power versions, the 7KW can operate from any 240v single-phase AC electrical supply, similar to that used in residential properties and smaller shops and offices.
The 22kW offers faster charging for electric vehicles which can accommodate a higher level of AC charge input and can be connected to any three-phase 400v AC supply similar to that which can be found in larger industrial premises and office blocks. Suitable for charging cars, vans, HGVs and other transport vehicles the ECHO offers a very versatile, low cost installation for commercial premises. With an eye on safety the Echo has built-in safety functions which can shut down the charger if it detects certain characteristics such as input under voltage, input over-voltage, output short-circuit, output overvoltage, output over-current, battery reverse connection, insulation detection, communication failure, etc. Additionally there is a fail-safe emergency stop button fitted to all Hydra EV chargers which can be manually operated in the event of a failure.
The Hydra Echo EV Charger can be used as a single charge-point or as a part of an organization’s entire EV fleet ecosystem where charging facilities are required across multiple sites. The Echo charger can be paired with our unique Hydra Cloud facility offering complete EV charging network management and real-time monitoring of charging usage and peak demand across the whole network.
