Improved user experience

Circontrol is prioritizing its efforts to provide more accessible and user-friendly products, driven by the increasing adoption of EVs throughout Europe. The new products Raption Compact 240 and Raption Compact 160 feature an enhanced user experience, compared to the previous generation of the Raption Series.

Furthermore, the screen has been to prevent vandalism acts, by applying IK10 (mechanical resistant degree). In addition, the new screen interface provides new icons and more data to users, such as current charging power or charging voltage.

The new Raption evolution has repositioned its holders to a 90-degree, making it much easier to plug and unplug cables. In addition, The Raption compact 240 and 160 feature an assisted cable management system, as an optional accessory, which, helps the user to move and collect the cables, offering a better experience and security.

Finally, in terms of user experience, like the previous Raption Series generation, Circontrol’s DC chargers will continue to offer multiple integrated contactless payment systems, an acclaimed method that allows users to pay for the charging session without any previous registration in any platform, and now also gives much flexibility to charge point owners.

More Power

The new Raption Generation surpasses its predecessors, the Circontrol’s DC chargers Raption 150 Compact and Raption 200, in terms of power. In addition, the new Raption Compact 240 not only features more power than Raption 200, but it also offers an all-in-one solution, integrating its power modules inside the charger.

European Compliant

The latest Raption Series comes equipped with a range of enhancements to meet the specific requirements set by various countries’ legislations. According to European standards, the screen and the holders have been placed in a lower position ensuring accessibility for handicapped individuals. Moreover, Circontrol’s new chargers will now offer an optional DC meter in markets where it is in demand.

More to come

The Raption series has more exciting novelties in store, extending beyond just these two new DC chargers. Circontrol is currently working on a new fast DC dual-charging product, set to be released at the beginning of 2024. These new products are part of the company’s preparation for 2025 when the European Union will require by law a fast-charging station installed every 60 Km.
