Savant Systems, Inc. has added a premium EV charger as part of its suite of energy management products, and it might just be the nudge needed to push the intelligent power category more into the mainstream for integrators.
The Savant LVL 2 EV Charger complements the Savant Power System platform that includes intelligent load management and monitoring, scalable battery storage solutions, and environmental controls including lighting and climate solutions.
The charger delivers powerful features on its own, but when installed as part of a Savant Power System it delivers added visibility and control. When connected to a Savant Power Module, the charger enables homeowners to monitor energy consumption trends, manage power usage by automatically powering down other high-current devices while actively charging, and to schedule charging, intelligently avoiding peak utility rates.
The company partnered with Schumacher Electric, a leader in automotive power conversion and battery products, to design and deliver an intelligent EV charger specifically for the Savant ecosystem and sold exclusively by Savant.
The charger is a powerful, hardwired 240-volt solution capable of delivering up to 50 amps of output, with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for simplified installation and configuration. The lockable, ergonomically designed charging wand has a 25-foot cable with a universal connector that can be neatly stored on either the right or left side of the unit based on user-preference and mounting location.
