Advanced Asset Management

Beyond hardware, the A400 integrates a cloud-based asset management toolchain. This allows for the management of charging assets at a high level, similar to telecommunication networks. The A400 includes 24/7 asset management service-level agreements (SLAs), targeting 99% charging success rates and 97% uptime, with swift service response times.

Focus on Reliability and Efficiency

ABB E-mobility emphasizes balancing installed power and reliability. The A400 is designed for a 10-year product lifetime, high reliability, and enabling customers to sell energy at the lowest cost. Dynamic power sharing, efficient air cooling, and industrialized system design contribute to enhanced reliability.

Innovative Cooling Technology

ABB E-mobility is the first to implement two-phase cooling technology (liquid to vapor to liquid) in a charging connector capable of up to 600 amperes of peak current. This patented technology is more reliable and efficient, with lower maintenance costs than traditional liquid-cooled cable solutions.

What the A400 Delivers

  • Dual Charging Ports: Provides 200kW of continuous charging power to two vehicles, up to 400kW for a single vehicle.
  • Silicon Carbide Power Modules: Allows simultaneous charging in 50 kW increments.
  • Hassle-Free Payment: Integrated into the user interface, eliminating interoperability issues.
  • Modular Design: Enhances serviceability and durability.
  • Compact Footprint: Optimized airflow for long-term reliability.
  • Performance-Based SLAs: Ensures high charging success rates and availability.
