Seven charging points were installed to charge 25 electric vehicles

Last weekend 3rd Motorsport Festival Alp 2500, one of the most important events in the motoring world, was held in Alp, a town in Cerdanya located in the Pyrenees. For the first time among the organized activities, there was an EcoTrobada, a race for hybrid and electric vehicles. 25 hybrid and electric vehicles participated in this race. Circontrol installed seven charging points which charged all the participating vehicles.

Four Circontrol charging posts managed with a master-slave system were installed in Alp. These were one master and three slaves that provided seven charging three-phase points with 22kw power each. This solution is the most cost-effective way to manage a system with several slave chargers controlled by a single master. This system distributes the power supplied to multiple users using only one charger and reducing installation and maintenance costs.
