Fast-charge Solution with the Ebus 320 kW GAMMA Fast-charge station:
The Ebus GAMMA fully integrated fast-charge system is factory built and easily installed on your transit route. The GAMMA fast-charge station charges a bus in minutes every couple of hours and enables the fast-charge electric bus to operate virtually endlessly without returning to the depot.
There is no separate building needed to house the charger electronics – it's all built into the base of the GAMMA right at the factory. This minimizes the site preparation significantly since only a 28-inch by 42-inch concrete pad is needed for the bolting down of the complete system.
With fast-charging, or opportunity charging, an electric bus can operate all day, without having to carry a large, heavy or expensive battery. During normal layover times, the bus will connect automatically to the charger without the driver needing to leave his seat.
A single GAMMA fast-charge station at the end of a typical urban route can support as many as eight buses, each taking a turn for a few minutes at a time.
This quick charge system makes it possible to operate electric buses on a route all day without having to return to the depot. That's why fast-charging stations are becoming the preferred way to realize the promises of bus electrification.
Ebus has been and continues to be a pioneer in fast-charge technology and will be there to provide single source support for all your electric bus charging needs.
