OmniOn Power enters EV Charging narket with reliable, efficient power supply

As the consumer market for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow, the need for faster, more reliable and available charging infrastructure becomes increasingly prevalent. To address the needs of today and tomorrow, original equipment manufacturers and power providers must develop innovative solutions that further entice consumers to make the switch from gasoline-powered vehicles and better support the needs of those who already have.

OmniOn Power is helping to meet the power, reliability and efficiency needs of the growing EV industry by leveraging its extensive DC power solution and system expertise to develop new 30-kilowatt power supplies specifically designed for the market – its EV100H3NK and EV101H3N1K. The rectifiers convert commercial AC power to the highly efficient DC power used in the latest fast DC chargers being developed today.

“While this may be our first product specifically designed for EV charging, we have an extensive history of working with customers to design and develop innovative power solutions for their critical infrastructure, such as the latest wireless architectures and high-performance data centers,” said Gopal Mitra, industrial segment leader for OmniOn Power. “This inaugural entry into the EV market allows us to apply our deep domain expertise into a growing industry, offering reliability, leadership and guidance to customers looking to build their next fast DC-powered EV charger.”

To improve charger reliability and availability, the rectifiers can be deployed in parallel configurations of up to 12 or more power supplies, providing total system capacities up to 360kW and higher. For easier maintenance, the rectifier modules feature plug-and-play connectivity, allowing for units to be quickly swapped out when servicing to minimize down time. The rectifiers also integrate CAN automotive communications protocols, streamlining integration and communication between components.

Measuring in at a space-saving 13.23 inches wide, 3.3 inches high and 17.25 inches deep, the EV100H3NK and EV101H3N1K rectifiers from OmniOn Power feature a 480V three-phase input, as well as 30kW DC fast-charging-compatible output with an adjustable output range of 50-1,000 volts DC (VDC) that is settable by the host charger.
