A fast DC charger with a lower power output can be a very cost-effective way to achieve faster charging times, compared to a standard AC wallbox, as it bypasses your EV’s onboard AC charger (which could be limited to 11kW).
This means an average family EV with a 60kWh battery could be fully recharged in under 3 hours compared to over 8 hours on a domestic 7kW chargepoint. Similarly, an electric commercial van with a 100kW battery could be recharged from 20% up to 80% charge in just 2 hours with the 30kW DION.
Having an IP55-rated dust and waterproof design, it is suitable for outdoor use or inside a parking garage. The sleek and compact DION EV charger is perfect for installations where space is limited as it can be wall-mounted but can also be supplied with an optional pedestal mount.
The built-in RFID card reader can control access to the charging functions, allowing only authorised users, residents or staff members to start and stop the charging process. We also offer an optional PENSIO CONTACTLESS PAYMENT SOLUTION providing simple, app-free charging, which will allow you to generate revenue from the EV charger by giving public users the facility to pay for charging on demand.
The Hydra Dion can self-detect the vehicle specification being charged – car, van, HGV or public transport vehicle – as well as its battery charge status and displays the information on the unit’s 10” screen in real-time.
Like all Hydra EV charging products, the DION is OCPP-compliant for data transfer and communications. It can be fully managed in real-time via our Hydra Nexus platform, which can monitor a single device or an entire nationwide network. The Hydra Dion can communicate via wired ethernet (standard) or 3G/4G data network (optional).
The DION Fast DC EV charger has built-in charging protection which disables the unit if it detects a communication fault with the EV, charging lead disconnection, over temperature and over voltage. Additionally, it is fitted with an emergency stop button, which will immediately cut off the charging process.
