Power2Drive: Future electromobility solutions
At the Power2Drive Europe 2022 trade fair in Munich, from May 11 to 13, Webasto will be exhibiting its offerings relating to charging solutions for electric vehicles and the electrification of commercial vehicles.
Gilching – May 11, 2022 – At Booth 560 in Hall B6, Webasto, systems partner to the electromobility sector, will be showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of charging solutions and digital services, along with battery and heating systems for electric and hybrid vehicles. This year places a special focus on two new charging solutions.
Broad range of wallboxes
The new Webasto Unite charging station – a new part of Webasto’s product portfolio as of summer 2022 – will be on show at Power2Drive for the first time. It is tailored precisely to the requirements of business customers. It complies with the MID and the forthcoming product variant will meet the requirements of the calibration regulations (from fall 2022). It is therefore suitable for use in almost all areas of application in many countries and regions. The Webasto Pure and Webasto Next, which have already been available on the market for some time, will also be exhibited at the show. While the Webasto Pure is primarily designed for private users, the Webasto Next can be optimized for use by small and medium-sized companies. With its expanded portfolio, Webasto offers the right charging station for every location. Moreover, visitors will also be able to obtain initial information about the Webasto Go – a new mobile charging solution slated for launch in the fall of 2022. The Webasto Go is the ideal travel companion, because the new charging cable is supplied with interchangeable Schuko and industrial plugs, delivering up to 7.3 kW of charging capacity.
Webasto ChargeConnect digital platform solution
To digitally complement the Webasto Next and Webasto Unite smart wallboxes, the company offers Webasto ChargeConnect as a platform solution. Private individuals and business customers alike will benefit from a wide range of useful features. While the app can be used to conveniently start and stop charging sessions, the web portal offers comprehensive management of multiple Webasto charging stations as well as insights into total consumption, charging sessions and much more. Data and cyber security are guaranteed to be GDPR-compliant at the highest level for all processes.
All-round electromobility package
Thanks to its modular design, the standard battery system from Webasto is suitable for use in a wide range of electric and hybrid vehicles. Two possible configurations operating at 400 V or 800 V, with capacities from 35 kWh to 350 kWh, coupled with a scalable design incorporating from one to ten battery packs, deliver a custom solution for every customer specification – every time. These customizations make the standard battery system suitable for integration into a wide range of commercial vehicles. Webasto has developed the Vehicle Interface Box (VIB) to complement the battery system. This serves as an interface between the battery system and the vehicle. It is capable of controlling up to ten battery systems, and facilitates both system configuration and programming. In addition to the products themselves, Webasto’s service portfolio provides comprehensive support on the road to electrification: From planning and development to the implementation of electric drives and beyond, the company supports its customers as a reliable partner.
Webasto’s presence at the trade fair will be rounded off by a presentation by Karl Kolmsee, Head of Product Portfolio Management Energy Systems at Webasto, on May 12 from 4:00 p.m. to 4:20 p.m., on the topic “Vehicle2Grid: Batteries at the Core of the Decentralization of the Generation Market.”
