STROM / EV charging station in parking garages


With the popularity of electric vehicles, the demand for charging stations is also increasing. Charging spaces are continuously used by fully charged cars, and users who need to charge the car can not use it. In some parking garages, the charging station can only be used for a maximum of 3 hours a day and the parking space must be vacated for other users no later than 3 hours after parking vehicle. Users will be fined €50 if they break the rules.
STROM is an integrated product for charging electric vehicles in future parking garages or underground car parks to improve the efficiency of the charging station and reduce users' charging anxiety.
