October 22, 2011 – Schneider Electric’s EVlink outdoor electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are the newest addition to Schneider’s EVlink portfolio, which consists of a line of residential and commercial EV charging solutions. Key features of the outdoor charging stations include: standards compliance; ground fault monitoring and protection; dual charging option (two charging circuits integrated into one pedestal); and availability in wall or pedestal mounts. Authentication using a RFID card scan ensures that only approved users can access the charging station.

The program will assist contractors in advising, selling and installing a range of EV solutions across commercial, industrial and residential applications.
