Pedestal PRO has announced the introduction of a Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) Charging Station that the company says includes technology-driven security capabilities within the charger’s pedestal.

According to the company, the new EV stations support one to four 40 Amp or 80 Amp chargers and the option to add surveillance cameras, emergency response communications, access control and other security or IoT edge devices specified by the customer.

Property owners can monitor the health and status of EV charging functions, control the price-per-kWh, and manage the pedestal’s security devices through an intuitive web-based dashboard.

Furthermore, cameras and other devices that are compatible with sitewide security platforms enable integration of security video and data from the EV chargers into video management systems (VMS), access control and other security systems.

The charger stand’s interior, equipped with high-voltage and low-voltage electronics, provides dedicated mounting space that conforms to the desired devices’ specifications.

Pedestal PRO also says that it has paired premium aesthetics with industrial-grade construction to create an EV Charging Stand that enhances the look of any property and is designed to last.

Its NEMA-4-rated housing is built with a zinc-primed, powder coated steel body and side panels, features attractive status lighting for each charger and may be ordered with custom colors, lettering and graphics to accommodate custom branding without slowing down the production timeline.

No minimum quantities are required.

In entering the Level 2 Charging market, Pedestal PRO says that it plans to expand the footprint of available chargers while seeking to eliminate the problems traditionally associated with the product category.

Cloud-based notifications to a central network allow the chargers to self-report faults and downtime, prompting expedited maintenance or repairs.

LTE cellular and Wi-Fi ensure reliable connectivity with the cloud; the devices can also transmit over wireless mesh in underground garages and other areas lacking strong cellular communications.

A mobile app helps drivers find charging stations, define their charging preferences, record their charging metrics and more.

Built-in cameras, when integrated with VMS and analytics solutions, can deter bad actors from cutting cables and vandalizing cars, and potentially identify and report suspicious behaviors.

“Flexible solutions”

“Pedestal PRO has built its reputation on creating solutions that address the market’s desire for top quality, flexible solutions that are easy to customize, order, install and maintain,” said Pike Goss, Founder and CEO of Pedestal PRO.

“These principles have made us the industry leader in pedestal manufacturing.

“We expect the same success with our Level 2 EV Charging Stations.

“Our stand’s novel design, thoughtful engineering and expanded function beyond a single-purpose unit ensure retailers and property managers will quickly reap a return on investment.

“With those advantages, we expect our solution to ultimately dominate the Level 2 public charger category.”  

Pedestal PRO’s Level 2 Charging Station will be displayed at ISC West in Las Vegas, 9-12 April, Stand 15121.
