SICHARGE UC Product Family at a glance

One product family for all types of utility electric vehicles that meets all requirements and is suitable for both opportunity and depot charging.
Dispenser
Dispenser for the plug-in connection

For investment and space optimization, several Dispensers can be powered in sequence by a single Charging Center. For the air-cooled version up to 150 kW, we offer roof- and wall-mounted Dispenser variants along with the floor-mounted option. The newest variant of the air-cooled cable Dispenser provides even more flexibility and efficiency and is space-saving thanks to the higher current, smaller footprint, 10“ touchscreen, and optimized cost. Liquid-cooled cables as an option can be installed in the same Dispenser housing, increasing charging power up to 400 A.

Charging Center SICHARGE UC 150

SICHARGE UC 150 is the new member of the SICHARGE UC family. The Charging Center SICHARGE UC 150 delivers 150 kW for a future-proof, reliable, and optimized charging solution. It has many advantages, including higher current output, smaller footprint, low noise, better serviceability, and much more.

Contact hood
Contact Hood

For electric vehicles with an on-board Pantograph, the contact Hood is the right connection. We offer two solutions: a contact hood mounted on a mast or right under the ceiling via the Dispenser.

Charging Center SICHARGE UC 100-800
Charging Center

The Charging Center is the core of your system. It contains the charging controller, the DC converters, and an optional direct cable connection to the vehicle. Several other vehicle connections like the cable-based Dispenser, inverted Pantograph, and Hood can be powered by this unit.

Pantograph
Pantograph

For opportunity charging, we offer the inverted Pantograph solution with the MastPanto based on the OPPCharge (opportunity charging) solution. The solution is provided for the entire SICHARGE UC portfolio. 

Best fitting charging equipment

The SICHARGE UC product family provides a variety of electric vehicles interface options and offers broad power range from 100 kW to 800 kW.
 

The easiest way to connect to an electric vehicle is via a charging cable from the Charging Center. For investment and space optimization, several Dispensers with plug-in connection to eVehicle can be powered in sequence by a single Charging Center.


The SICHARGE UC product family provides solutions also for automated connection possibilities for opportunity charging via a mast mounted Pantograph or via fix contact rails installed in the mast or roof mounted Hood.
 

Either of such option is again powered by the Charging Center and if you want to combine Dispensers and Pantograph, you also have this flexibility.

Charging Center

The Charging Center is the core of the system.
 

It contains the power electronics including Siemens SIMATIC S7 controller, transformers for galvanic isolation, AC/DC converters and EMC fillters.

 

The Charging Center can be equipped directly with a charging cable or connected with the cable based Dispensers. Other connection options like inverted Pantograph or mast mounted Hood can be powered by the high power Charging Center unit. 

 

The Charging Center is delivered 100-percent factory-tested, including controllers, the device as a whole and, optionally, communication with the Dispenser.

Dispenser plug-in connection to eVehicle

As space is valuable in many public places and logistic sites, you might want to distribute the DC power from the Charging Centers via up to 5 additional Dispensers which you can install flexibly within your charging setup.

Liquid cooled cables as an option can be installed in the same Dispenser housing, increasing charging power up to 400 A.


For the air cooled version up to 150 kW we offer roof- and wall-mounted Dispenser variants along with the floor-mounted option.

 

The cable connected Dispenser of the SICHARGE UC family is installed close to the vehicles with a small footprint and elegant design.

Inverted Pantograph for charging with external Panto

MastPanto - urban design

MastPanto - industrial design
 

The inverted Pantograph is fully automated option to connect to the fleet e.g. on feeding opportunities along the route.
 

Siemens offers two versions that integrate perfectly into the cityscape. Whether you choose traditional industrial design or modern urban design, you will get your mast delivered fully preinstalled, electrically checked and equipped with the Pantograph.

Hood for charging with Panto integrated into eVehicle

For electric commercial vehicles with integrated Pantographs, Siemens also offers a charging Hood with the corresponding charging cover for contacting. It is designed for the efficient connection of any ISO 15118 bottom-up Pantograph system.
 

The Hood is available in two variants: mounted on a mast or directly under the ceiling. Special cover on the Hood makes it better fitting into the cityscape.

Each mast arrives fully preinstalled, electrically checked and equipped with the contact Hood.

Optimal charging equipment

The SICHARGE UC product family provides a variety of electric vehicles interface options and a broad power range from 100 kW to 600 kW.
 

The easiest way to connect to an electric vehicle is via a charging cable from the Charging Center. For investment and space optimization, several Dispensers with a plug-in connection for eVehicles can be powered in sequence by a single Charging Center.
 

The SICHARGE UC product family provides solutions also for automated connection possibilities for opportunity charging via a mast mounted Pantograph or via fix contact rails installed in the mast or roof mounted Hood.


Either of such option is again powered by the Charging Center and if you want to combine Dispensers and Pantograph, you also have this flexibility.
