HEIDELBERG, Germany , Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG) is further expanding its portfolio in the growing market for charging technology under the AMPERFIED brand. At the "Light + Building" trade show, the subsidiary Amperfied GmbH is presenting a new generation of wall charging stations with a focus on connectivity and modularity as well as integration into home energy management systems for the use of self-generated electricity at its own booth. These new systems also lay the foundation for the expansion of the range in the field of charging management for multi-family homes or entire vehicle fleets.
In addition, HEIDELBERG is showing the first barrier-free charging station that meets the requirements at public locations such as supermarkets, rest areas or restaurants. The presentation of CO2-compensated wall charging stations as well as a new control unit for dynamic load management for optimal charging of multiple vehicles round off the extended range.
