BYD 150KW DC Plug-in Charger Certified

High Capacity Single-unit Charger works with any SAE J1772 CCS Type 1 connector

LOS ANGELES, CALIF.  (12/1/2020) – BYD (Build Your Dreams) announced its 150kW DC fast charger for buses and trucks has been certified by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), widening the universe of charging solutions available for BYD customers.

The DC charger is also the highest capacity, single-unit charger ever certified by UL. The charger can be used by any battery-electric bus or truck with a CCSType 1 connector.

“Once again BYD is leading the way with innovative technology and offers the total solution for our customers’ needs,” BYD North America President Stella Li said. “Every day our buses and trucks are hard at work in North America and now there’s another option available on the job.”

 

The BYD UL-listed 150kW DC charger gained a full suite of safety certifications that cover the charger’s connection to a power source and the plugs, receptacles, and couplers that connect to a bus or truck. The certifications include UL 2202, the standard for Safety of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging System Equipment for fast chargers, and UL 2594, the standard for Safety of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment.

The UL symbol lets consumers know a product is safe and has been tested to rigorous standards designed to reduce the risk of fire, shock and personal injury.
