Heidelberg is launching the next generation of its charging technology for electric vehicles with integrated load management for simultaneous charging of multiple vehicles. The Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control can be linked to home energy management systems (HEMS) and is particularly attractive to business customers.
As the number of electric vehicle registrations continues to rise, there is also an increasing need to charge multiple vehicles in the same location simultaneously. This means a growing demand for charging equipment with a load management system that optimizes distribution of the available charging capacity between a number of electric vehicles. Heidelberg has responded by launching the new generation of its charging systems for hybrid and electric vehicles.
The Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control with integrated load management supports simultaneous charging of several vehicles, which provides an attractive charging solution for apartment buildings, multi-vehicle garages, and company/hotel parking lots. Based on dynamic local load management, a number of networked Wallboxes distribute the available charging current to as many as 16 hybrid or electric vehicles in an optimized, automatic process.
Some of the technical highlights of the Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control include dynamic local load management for two or more networked wallboxes, RS485 interface for external load management control, high-quality stainless steel front, adjustable nominal current, single-phase or three-phase power supply, integrated residual current detection, optional access control with a switching device, type 2 charging cable connector.
“Charging systems from Heidelberg have now firmly established themselves on the electric vehicle market. Many users, especially business customers, are also eagerly awaiting the company’s launch of its enhanced charging technology with integrated load management, which combines tried-and-tested Heidelberg quality with real value for money,” says Heidelberg chief executive officer Rainer Hundsdörfer.
2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India
Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and
multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.
The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry.
While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately
their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book
printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.
The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.
Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.
Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.
Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
