Phihong Technology Co.

Phihong Technology, a power supply manufacturer, unveiled its new portfolio of electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions for the global market. Offering flexibility and adaptability for a variety of charging applications covering residential, commercial, and fleet chargers, Phihong’s technology also includes large-scale charging infrastructure, such as EV charging hubs. The company is marking its 50th anniversary, and 10 years since it established a specialist EV division to help support environmental goals.

The establishment of reliable and flexible energy storage systems is crucial for electric vehicles to be fully popularized, and to support the ambitions for 500,000 public chargers by 2030 in the US, and 300,000 by 2030 in the UK. In Europe, the Electric Vehicle Charging Masterplan found that up to 14,000 public charging points need to be installed per week between 2021 and 2030 for cars – compared to just 2,000 per week currently, to meet sustainability goals.

Phihong’s solutions are positioned to support these ambitious targets. The company is already working with the likes of Shell, Audi, Jaguar, Helsinki Bus Charging Depot, and International Luxury Hotels California.

Phihong’s portfolio of charging solutions includes Level 3 DC chargers ranging from 30kW to 360kW and Level 2 AC EVSE ranging from 16 amps to 48 amps, as well as portable chargers and user interface (HMI) and a cloud-based management platform. Through its front-end mobile app, people can search for nearby chargers, schedule charging appointments, and monitor charging status. System operators can monitor the status of individual EV chargers and remotely update them, enabling long-term maintenance and management, tailored to their specific needs.

Phihong’s new products include:

  • Dual Gun Dispenser: Providing short charging duration and an optimized gun line management system, the Dual Gun Dispenser also is smaller than many stations making it more flexible in terms of space usage when installed in a parking lot

  • 4th generation Media Charger: Designed to improve the usage rate and economic efficiency of the charging station, the Media Charger offers practicality and stability, and serves as an advertising display and media promotion
  • 4th generation Depot Charger: The Depot Charger is suspended from the ground at the height of 5 meters to charge electric buses and is compatible with all standard charging technology specifications. It is fully modular and does not require human intervention for plugging and unplugging. The entire charging station can be expanded with charging islands to meet customized needs
  • 4th generation Separate Charger: The Separate Charger is fully modular and designed for large open spaces and urban planning. Its unique feature is creating an open sky area in the center of the module's circumference. It is perfectly suited to be incorporated with renewable energy systems, to deliver emissions-free transport

“In the response to climate change and the commitments made at COP26, many nations are re-focusing their economies to achieve sustainability,” says Manny Huguez, EV Charger Strategic Channel Development, at Phihong. “Coupled with the fluctuations in oil prices caused by global conflict, electrification is becoming an even greater priority for governments globally, with many new policy commitments recently announced.”

“We set up our specialist EV division a decade ago to as part of our mission to further environmental protection and carbon reduction. Today, Phihong’s technology is designed to meet the various and dynamic needs of a booming EV market,” continues Huguez. “By taking a customer-centric approach that adapts to the specific requirements of end users, regions, and sites, we can accelerate the rollout and uptake of fit-for-purpose EV charging worldwide.”

Phihong offers a comprehensive service to energy companies and fleet operators, providing planning, design, production, construction, and set up, including real time monitoring of chargers and payment infrastructure. It also provides a full after sales service with rigorous training, 24/7 support and repairs and upgrades.

As electric vehicles grow every year, Phihong’s power storage solutions will not only charge electric vehicles but can also return the energy of electric vehicles to the power grid (vehicle-to-grid) through reverse technology. Phihong's energy storage solutions can also increase the multi-dimensional flexibility of the energy use of each charging station, and thereby relieve the load pressure of electricity during peak hours.

All Phihong products have passed the IATF16949 certification, the highest quality management system standard in the automotive industry.
