Wieland Electric’s podis® flat cable system provides an innovative and decentralized solution for supplying power to electric vehicle charging stations. Wallboxes can be supplied with energy easily and quickly, with significantly less effort and material consumption than a conventional installation, thanks to decentralized supply technology.
The podis® energy bus system is ideal for supplying electricity to charging stations.
A large number of charging stations can be connected to a single supply line using this decentralized power distribution system. This saves time during installation, reduces the amount of material needed, and significantly reduces the distribution cabinet’s dimensions. The feed-in or energy tap-off connection components can be placed at any point on the power bus. The podis® components’ piercing contacts enable quick and flexible positioning of the connection modules. As a result, traditional time-consumers like cutting, stripping, and terminating are rendered obsolete.
The feed into the energy bus can be set completely flexibly and freely – even centrally, allowing for an ideal load balance on the energy bus. As a result, the number of charging stations fed on a line section can be increased without overloading the flat cable. The power supply tap-off modules can be placed anywhere and at any time. This also allows for the installation to be easily and affordably expanded. The unique feature of these tap-off modules is that they are available in both fixed and pluggable configurations. When a charging station needs to be replaced, this provides significant benefits.
The podis® cable is a 5-core flat cable system with a cross-section of 16mm2, rated at 63A, 600V. Connection cross-sections of up to 16mm2 in the centre feed and up to 70mm2 in the end feed are possible.
