Carlo Gavazzi: DCT1, the DC Energy Transducer for Measurements in Fast Chargers

The near future for EV charging applications is mainly based on fast, ultra-fast, and hyper-fast chargers. Therefore, there is an increasing need for reliable and accurate metering systems to avoid the outdated “charge-by-time method” or the upstream AC meters which can make the end user also pay for the system power losses. The DCT1 is Carlo Gavazzi’s first and most suitable response to this need. A very flexible, simple, compact, and easy-to-integrate solution for energy measurement in fast chargers.
