Eltek To Supply Chargers For Volvo EV Project


Eltek has signed an agreement with Volvo Car Corp. regarding deliveries of on-board chargers for a hybrid electrical vehicle program.

Under the agreement, Eltek will supply complete water-cooled on-board chargers, with volume production starting in 2012. The Eltek EV Powercharger 3000 provides an output power in excess of 3 kW with 96% power conversion efficiency, which minimizes heat generation and battery charge time, and thereby lowers charging costs, according to Eltek.

In addition, the Powercharger 3000's compact design will fit into any free space in an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, and the charger is designed for maximal utilization of a 16 A wall socket, the company says.
