Verdek’s line of Proterra-manufactured ulta-fast electric chargers are the industry standard for heavy duty EV fleets. The PCS (Power Control System) line of chargers come in several configurations, with options for both overhead (charging via mechanical arm) and traditional cable-based plug-in models. We can help you choose between the three power levels (60kW, 125kW, and 500kW) based on your preferred charging session length, daily range requirements for your fleet, and your operation floorplan.
Proterra’s PCS charging stations are modular and scalable solutions that can easily be integrated into your existing power grid. The dispensing units (where the vehicle charges up) can be placed up to 500 feet away from your power systems, giving you flexibility with your charging station layout.
Proterra equipment is standardized, meaning diverse fleets including cars, buses, and utility vehicles can all use the same charging infrastructure.

PCS (Power Control System)
For electric fleets with longer available charge times, Verdek offers Proterra’s Power Control System as the most cost-effective way to keep your EV fleet charged up.
A fully modular and scalable solution, each power control cabinet can be paired with up to four individual charging dispensers that will automatically and sequentially charge each vehicle to capacity.
Configuring multiple dispensers per power system allows you to install less equipment and reduce the overall space needed for your charging systems. This solution affords your operation an extremely cost-effective charging schedule which leverages longer charge times and automated, efficient smart-grid connections.
