Vector Controller Now Supports Charging via Roof-Mounted Pantographs

The VC-EVCC-P supports the charging of electric commerical vehicles via roof-mounted pantographs. The range of possible applications of this ECU is thus greatly extended.

VC-EVCC-P supports charging via pantographs installed on the roof of the vehicle.

In addition to charging with an inverted pantograph according to OppCharge V1.3.0, the new software release 3.0.0 enables the Vector Controller VC-EVCC-P for charging via roof-mounted pantographs.

Furthermore, VC-EVCC-P now supports dual-ECU mode. Thus it can be installed together with the separately available ECU VC-VCCU for inlet-charging. Both new features give OEMs and their customers a maximum of flexibility for the charging of commercial vehicles.
