LONG BEACH, Calif., May 9, 2022 – Phihong Technology, a leading power supply manufacturer, joins over 250 exhibitors at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, in Long Beach, California this week to unveil its new portfolio of electric vehicles (EV) charging solutions for the global market. 

Offering flexibility and adaptability for a variety of charging applications covering residential, commercial and fleet chargers, Phihong’s technology also includes large-scale charging infrastructure, such as EV charging hubs. The company is this year marking its 50-year anniversary and 10 years since it established a specialist EV division to help support environmental goals.

The establishment of reliable and flexible energy storage systems is crucial for electric vehicles to be fully popularised, and to support the ambitions for 500,000 public chargers by 2030 in the U.S., and 300,000 by 2030 in the U.K. In Europe, the Electric Vehicle Charging Masterplan found that up to 14,000 public charging points need to be installed per week between 2021 and 2030 for cars – compared to just 2,000 per week currently, in order to meet sustainability goals.

With a strong track record in power supply product R&D, Phihong’s tried-and-tested solutions are perfectly positioned to support these ambitious targets. The company is already working with the likes of Shell, Audi, Jaguar, Helsinki Bus Charging Depot and International Luxury Hotels California. 

Phihong’s portfolio of charging solutions includes Level 3 DC fast chargers ranging from 30kW to 360kW and Level 2 AC EVSE ranging from 16 amps to 48 amps, as well as portable chargers and user interface (HMI) and a cloud-based management platforms. Through its front-end mobile app, people can search for nearby chargers, schedule charging appointments, and monitor charging status. System operators can monitor the status of individual EV chargers and remotely update them, enabling long-term maintenance and management, tailored to their specific needs. 

Phihong’s new products include: 

  • Dual Gun Dispenser: Providing short charging duration and an optimized gun line management system, the Dual Gun Dispenser also is smaller than many stations making it more flexible in terms of space usage when installed in a parking lot 
  • 4th generation Media Charger: Designed to improve the usage rate and economic efficiency of the charging station, the Media Charger offers practicality and stability, and also serves as an advertising display and media promotion  
  • 4th generation Depot Charger: The Depot Charger is suspended from the ground at the height of 5 meters to charge electric buses and is compatible with all standard charging technology specifications. It is fully modular and does not require human intervention for plugging and unplugging. The entire charging station can be expanded with a number of charging islands to meet customized needs 
  • 4th generation Separate Charger: The Separate Charger is fully modular and designed for large open spaces and urban planning. Its unique feature is creating an open sky area in the center of the module’s circumference. It is perfectly suited to be incorporated with renewable energy systems, to deliver emissions-free transport 

“In the response to climate change and the commitments made at COP26, many nations are re-focusing their economies to achieve sustainability. Coupled with the fluctuations in oil prices caused by global conflict, electrification is becoming an even greater priority for governments globally, with many new policy commitments recently announced,” Manny Huguez, EV Charger Strategic Channel Development, at Phihong said.

“We set up our specialist EV division a decade ago as part of our mission to further environmental protection and carbon reduction. Today, Phihong’s tried-and-tested, but tailored, technology is designed to meet the various and dynamic needs of a booming EV market. What better place to showcase our new products than at the ACT Expo, alongside so many organizations committed to the decarbonization of transport. By taking a customer-centric approach that adapts to the specific requirements of end-users, regions and sites, we can accelerate the rollout and uptake of fit-for-purpose EV charging worldwide.” 

Phihong offers a comprehensive service to energy companies and fleet operators, providing everything from planning, design and production, to construction and setup, including real-time monitoring of chargers and payment infrastructure. It also provides a full after-sales service with rigorous training, 24/7 support and repairs and upgrades.  

In December 2021, energy giant Shell announced Phihong as a global supplier of charging equipment, and joint hands to deliver charging piles to the global market, as it looks to transform its gas stations into charging stations. The first Shell Recharge charging station was officially opened in Hong Kong in December 2021, with fast charging equipment, offering charging from 10% to 80% in minutes, and complete charging in as little as 25 minutes.  

As the number of electric vehicles grows year by year, Phihong’s power storage solutions will not only charge electric vehicles but can also return the energy of electric vehicles to the power grid (vehicle-to-grid) through reverse technology. Phihong’s energy storage solutions can also increase the multi-dimensional flexibility of the energy use of each charging station, and thereby relieve the load pressure of electricity during peak hours. 

All Phihong products have passed the IATF16949 certification, the highest quality management system standard in the automotive industry.
