Electric vehicles are playing an increasingly important role in the logistics sector. Lastmile delivery services are transitioning from conventionally powered fleets to electric vehicles to enable a more sustainable delivery. The relatively low volume and weight of consignments shipped by last mile services allow for highly standardized processes. Thus, the sorting of shipments is largely automated. This automation ensures a reliable, quick and efficient delivery right to doorsteps all over the world.
However, this high degree of automation also entails reliance on the uninterrupted operation of sorting machines. Consequently, charging infrastructure can only be installed if it does not interfere with the operation of the sorting machines. This is guaranteed by the constant overload protection of XENON charge. As the load management runs locally it is robust to any network outages and benefits from low latency. In real time it reacts to the current load at the grid connection point. It considers the current load of the building and dynamically adjusts the load allocated to the charging stations. This prevents any interference of the charging infrastructure with the operative business.
But XENON charge does not only ensure business continuity with its overload protection. The dynamic load management also lowers recurring grid tariffs due to lowered peak loads. The lower peaks also mean that more charging stations can be operated on existing infrastructure and expensive expansion of the grid connection can be avoided.
