ChargeTronix unveils 480 kW Nexus Distributed Charging System for commercial fleets.

LAS VEGAS—ChargeTronix, a global provider of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, recently introduced its new 480 kW Nexus Distributed Charger, which is designed to support the charging needs of commercial fleets as they shift to electric trucking.

With the electric truck market forecasted to grow by more than 54% on average each year between now and 2030, having scalable charging infrastructure will be essential for supporting fleets’ transitions. With up to 480 kW of available power and dynamic power sharing, Nexus Distributed Charger is the first system to allow charging for up to six commercial vehicles at a time from a single power cabinet. It can also charge 300 kWh Class 6 to 8 EVs in 30 to 45 minutes or enable longer dwell times for multiple trucks during peak downtime periods.

“As the demand for electric trucks grows, acquiring an all-electric fleet is only half of the equation for fleet operators,” said Stephen Israel, VP of operations at ChargeTronix. “Having charging infrastructure that provides dynamic power sharing in 40 kW power increments enables the operator to optimize charging to align with their duty cycle. With flexible solutions such as our new Nexus Distributed System, operators can share long dwell and opportunity charging assets.”

In addition to the 480 kW Nexus Distributed Charger and the accompanying Nexus Dispenser Towers, the list of products being shown includes:

  • 180 kW Apex DC Fast Charger, which offers a broad voltage range from 150 to 1,000 VDC, accommodating various EV needs. ChargeTronix also offers Apex chargers that can cover up to 360 kW output, depending on the number of power modules in the unit.
  • Phoenix Bidirectional Charger: (V2G), which enables two-way electricity flow between electric vehicles and the power grid supporting power ranges from 20 to 60 kW.
  • Flux AC Chargers, including the 48 Amp and 80 Amp Flux AC single and double chargers. The Flux AC chargers deliver up to 11.52 kW, enabling quick and efficient EV charging for both commercial and residential uses.

“Developing and installing charging infrastructure for electric fleets is a complex but necessary process for the transition to electric vehicles to become a reality,” said Xavier Landavazo, CEO of ChargeTronix. “Our latest distributed charger highlights our commitment to providing a breadth of innovative charging solutions to meet fleet operators’ unique needs.”
