BYD’s (Build Your Dreams) announced its 150kW DC fast charger for buses and trucks has been certified by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), widening the universe of charging solutions available for BYD customers.
The DC charger is also the highest capacity, single-unit charger yet certified by UL. The charger can be used by any battery-electric bus or truck with a CCSType 1 connector.
The BYD UL-listed 150kW DC charger gained a full suite of safety certifications that cover the charger’s connection to a power source and the plugs, receptacles, and couplers that connect to a bus or truck. These certifications include UL 2202, the standard for Safety of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging System Equipment for fast chargers, and UL 2594, the standard for Safety of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment.
The UL symbol lets consumers know a product is safe and has been tested to rigorous standards designed to reduce the risk of fire, shock and personal injury.
