Electromobility is slowly but surely becoming a reality of today. It focuses mainly on electric cars that are more environmentally friendly. It is thus an ecological mode of transport that does not produce primary emissions. Electric cars and other electrically powered vehicles are charged through the power grid. Home charging stations (wallboxes) or public charging stations are used for charging. You can find out which electric car runs in SECTRON colors in the article.
Electric cars run on electric power, have zero local emissions of CO2, NOx and do not produce any harmful substances. In terms of construction and used parts, electric cars are a significantly simpler device than a classic car, which saves on maintenance costs. Driving an electric car is about three times cheaper than driving a car with an internal combustion engine. You can also charge your electric car at home in the garage, at work or in a public place. Another advantage is the quiet operation of the electric car. The engine of an electric car makes no sound, while the engine of a classic car is noisy.
Hybrid cars use an internal combustion engine or an electric motor to drive them. They are equipped with a large-capacity battery that stores the energy expended during braking, so there is no need to recharge the battery at all.
Charging stations for electric cars are divided into AC and DC - according to the type of electric current that passes through them.
The AC station charges with alternating current and at the same time uses the car's on-board system, which converts the current from the socket to battery power. It therefore receives alternating current (AC) and converts it into direct current (DC), which it sends into the battery. AC charging stations are affordable and suitable for installation at home.
The DC station charges with direct current. It converts the alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), then it sends the current directly to the battery using the battery management system (BMS). The DC charging stations are technologically demanding (they need a powerful electric supply point) and their purchase price is much higher than the price of an AC charging station.
Charging cables The charging cables have type 2 connectors at both ends. They are made of high-quality materials and have a service life of more than 10,000 connection cycles. If you choose a thicker cable, you can also use it with your next electric car. When choosing a cable, an important parameter is its length, which will make it easier for you to handle the cable in a garage or public car park.
