Bosch’s plugless power for Electric vehicles (EV)

Bosch plug-less power

Tanvir Arfi President & CEO of Automotive Service Solutions Robert Bosch talks about the new plug-less power Bosch is offering. Bosch has an electric charging unit that you can plug into, but how cool is it that you can drive over a plate and the car will charge without plugging into anything?

Arfi talks about the plug less charging unit with Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, of Driving the Nation

The Plugless Level 2 EV Charging System offers a more convenient and reliable way to charge your EV. Simply pull into an equipped parking space and let the Plugless L2 System do the rest “wirelessly “ no cords to untangle and no plugging in required. It’s a completely hands-free technology. As you pull into your parking space, the wall-mounted Control Panel guides you over the Parking Pad. Once aligned, your EV begins charging automatically!

System Components

The Vehicle Adapter houses the receiving coil for the wireless charging process and is permanently installed underneath the vehicle. Vehicle Adapters are specially designed for each EV model.

The Control Panel houses the electrical components of the station and is hard-wired to a dedicated 240V 30A circuit. This component provides power to the Parking Pad. It also provides parking guidance and charging status information to the driver.
