Washington, DC (December 2, 2008) – Coulomb Technologies today announced they will bring advanced standards-based charging technology to plug-in vehicles. Coulomb will showcase prototypes of Level-2 high power networked charging stations, to be sold by Coulomb Technologies' distributors that will comply with the SAE J1772 Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Coupler Specification. The Coulomb Level-2 high power networked charging stations featuring prototype SAE J1772 connectors will be showcased at the EDTA conference December 2 – 4, 2008 at the Washington, DC Convention Center booth 810.
"Now plug-in vehicles will be standardized with the same charging connector. This ensures that drivers of the new generation of electric vehicles will have a place to charge them," said Richard Lowenthal, chief executive officer at Coulomb Technologies.
Coulomb Technologies, headquartered in Campbell, Calif., offers a family of products and services that provide a plug-in vehicle charging infrastructure, which includes Smartlet Networked Charging Stations ranging in capability from 120V 15A to 240V 80A AC charging to 120kW DC charging. Coulomb applies networking technology to the challenge of charging electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids in order to fuel the electric transportation industry. Coulomb's ChargePoint Network addresses the needs of drivers, utilities, governments, and parking space owners.
