with Pod Point's load balancing system.

Array Scalable Futureproofing

Future proof your locations

Easily add new chargers as EV adoption grows.

Array Energy Efficiency

Install up to 3x more chargepoints

Avoid upgrading the existing power supply.

Array Designed For Drivers

Designed with drivers in mind

Charging starts straight away with no wait period.

What can Array Charging do?

Array Charging enables a higher number of active chargepoints on the same power supply and/or passively wired bays for future expansion.

Future proof your sites

By 2030 almost all new cars registered in the UK will be electric.

Lay the foundations for easy future expansion of your charging infrastructure.

  • Array Charging lets you passively wire your parking bays so it's quicker to add new chargepoints as driver demand grows.
  • Add new chargepoints on demand and with minimum disruption.
  • Compliant with government regulations for the provision of vehicle charging.

Install up to 3x more chargepoints

Power supply upgrades are costly and can take months to complete.

Array Charging load balances chargepoints with the available power supply, letting you install more chargepoints on that supply.

  • Fit up to 27 charging sockets per 100A Three-Phase supply
  • Limit expensive power upgrades by efficiently using the existing power supply.
  • Enables reduced cost-per-bay as you expand.

Designed with drivers in mind

Other products operate a queuing system that can leave drivers waiting to start charging.

Pod Point's Array Charging system has been designed for drivers, so that they are treated fairly when charging.

  • Drivers can plug in or unplug whenever it's convenient for them.
  • Drivers can always rely on getting maximum available power once connected.
  • Array Charging will balance power load automatically for all connected drivers.

FAQs

What speed will a car charge at during peak times?

All EV chargepoints will deliver the maximum rate of charge available at all times based on the current load on that phase at any given time.

Typically, all cars will charge at 7kW and our Array Charging system will only reduce charging speed when necessary.

Once vehicles are unplugged or their batteries are full, the rate of charge will then increase for the remaining vehicles, in line with the now spare capacity.

Will all cars still charge at peak times when everyone is plugged in? Or is this a first come, first served system?

All cars will receive a charge at all times no matter how many are plugged in on the Array Charging system. This is not a first come, first served system and even at peak times, electricity will be delivered to all cars but at a lower charge rate.

Can Array Charging load manage on a supply less than 100A TPN?

Yes, the Array Charging load management system can be rated at 40A, 60A, 80A or 100A TPN or 100A SPN if you only have a single phase supply.

This does mean that there are a reduced amount of EV chargepoints which can be load managed but the total number will still be more than if load management was not used.

Can you load manage 22kW chargepoints on your Array Charging system?

22kW or any three phase units cannot be load managed on our Array Charging system. The system has been designed to make the most out of a limited power supply and is designed around 7kW EV chargepoints.

Does the Array Charging box need a data connection to communicate?

No, the firmware inside our Array Charging boxes has been created so that it doesn't need an outside connection; it is standalone and communicates with the EV chargepoints via a signal cable. However, the chargers will require a connection to enable smart reporting, billing and Over-the-Air updates.
