Charging Station for EVs

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryHaving envisioned that a cost-effective, but feature-rich EV charging station will contribute to expanding the EV charging infrastructure, ecarPlug developed the world’s first smartphonecontrolled EV charging stations − replacing the user interface built in the commercial EV charging stations with a user-friendly smartphone application. The ecarPlug EV charging stations are convenient and offer various useful features including user access authentication, mobile billing and payment through the user’s smartphone.
EV Drivers can use their smartphones with the installed application as a remote controller for charging. The installed application provides information on the locations of charging stations. EV Drivers can confirm the charging status. EV Drivers can use the charging service by making reservations, available for both normal charging and off-peak charging.
Just one unit of ecarPlug EV charging station can charge up to three EVs. The ecarPlug EV charging station is conveniently available for both apartment housing and commercial buildings, thereby enabling residents to use it together and contributing to the solving of the allocation of exclusive parking space for EVs.
ecarPlug guarantees the safety of the EV charging station in use. ecarPlug provides product protection class IP44. Also it has certificated KC(Korea Certification). For this station’s safety, a stop button is attached for emergency. Established in 2015, ecarPlug develops and supplies EV charging stations in Korea.
Including acquiring the related patent for this charging method in 2013, ecarPlug leads what it called the “home charger era” by enabling the charging of EVs in personal parking lots just as each person charges their mobile phones. The company further researches and develops in order to produce more convenient and higher-quality EVs chargers, based on the fact that within a few years, EVs would dominate more than 50 percent of the overall vehicle production despite the fact that the current popularization level of EVs still remains relatively low.
For the recently developed technology, ecarPlug’s EVRang is a new brand by which users can directly control EVs and pay charging fee by using mobile phones. And it enables the charging of multiple units of EVs simultaneously with only one unit of charger, thereby giving economical benefit and resolving the difficulty in securing of parking lots. And also, this solution is a convenience-maximized product with several impressive advantages including user self-payment, charging status checking, charging history searching, etc.

Smart EVs

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryEstablished in 2000, Semisysco, Co., Ltd. is a semiconductor and OLED solution company. Since its KOSDAQ IPO listing in its eleventh year in 2011, Semisysco has completed a smart EV lineup based on world-class technology and expertise, preparing for a second advance as an eco-friendly electric vehicle powerhouse.

 

Smart EV D2 (A perfect micro e-mobility that has already been certified in Europe)

D2 was the fourth best-selling electric car in the world in the first half of last year following Nissan Leaf, Tesla model S and model X. The D2 sold more than 50,000 models in Europe and China. In Korea, it is getting popular quickly as a next-generation means of transportation that fits the travel distance and purposes, e.g. for commuting, deliveries and public service.
In particular, the environmental protection effect and delivery and logistics transportation capability of D2 were recognized, and it was supplied to post offices as part of the government’s MOU project for popularization of environmentally friendly delivery systems. Currently a total of 30 D2 models are operated as mail delivery vehicles in post offices nationwide.
The D2 is rated as closest to a passenger car among the micro e-mobility models sold in Korea. As it comes with a lithium polymer battery (17.3kWh) with a capacity about double that of vehicles in the same class, it can run up to 150km. Compared to general micro e-mobility that can run 80km on one charging. It has nearly double the range.
As the winters are cold and long in Korea, micro e-mobility models are not very useful if they do not have a heating system even though they have good convenience features. But the D2 is the only micro e-mobility now on the roads in Korea that has a cooling and heating system.

 

Smart EV R3 (Personal electric vehicle R3 that has been optimized for the urban road environment)

R3 is a reversed-three wheeled electric vehicle made with domestic technology in the Semisysco Sejong Plant in the Sejong Future Industrial Complex. It is rated as the icon of the environmentally friendly short-range mobility model and delivery free from worries about emission of polluting particulate matters. With excellent power of 18.8HP, it can be driven stably on a 30% slope (about 16.7°). It is a perfect substitution for conventional small means of transportation, such as motorcycles and bicycles, and it can run 60km on one charging, and be charged with domestic 220V.
