Short Charging Break for Electric Commercial Vehicles
Unlike passenger cars, electrically powered commercial vehicles have special power requirements: As fixed assets they contribute to generating sales over the long term. So, they should be operated with as little downtime as possible. This means that charging times must be kept brief, which requires a high charging power. Charging systems with plug connectors are now reaching their limits, since the amount of power they can transmit is limited by wire gage and weight. Pantographs can provide relief.
