The RTM fast charger made by US-based electric-vehicle-charger manufacturer Tritium has been recognised by the Australian Good Design Awards committee in the engineering and product design categories for the commercial and industrial sectors.
‘The overall design and engineering of this product is very well considered. The charging system has multiple benefits – single technician installation, slim-line profile, fast charge (75-kilometre range in ten minutes),’ the Good Design Awards engineering design jury said. ‘The RTM EV charger design is a good example of clean, sophisticated and functional design and engineering that will help reduce a key barrier to EV market expansion. Really impressive project and a standout example of good design in this category that deserves to be recognised. Well done.’
The RTM is a modular and upgradeable DC fast charger that is capable of rapidly powering more than one EV of any model at a time and can scale from 25kW to 50kW and 75kW. It can be installed in less than two hours, serviced by a single technician and offers several customisation options. It also provides a fast charge and driver-friendly features such as intuitive screen flows and charger statistics, and Plug and Charge, which enables EVs and chargers to communicate, authenticate and transact via the charging cable, eliminating the need for a credit card reader, RFID card or QR Code.
‘A clean aesthetic and well considered design. The installation time of only two hours is impressive, as is the consideration of the user experience with the visual display and slimline design,’ said the Good Design Awards product design jury. ‘It’s fast, easy to use and customisable. It will be an increasingly important and sought-after product as EVs gain traction in the market. A clean design that complements the functionality of the unit very well.’
‘We are excited to receive these awards as it validates Tritium’s industry-leading product design and Modular Scalable Charging architecture, which was launched in 2020,’ said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. ‘To achieve widespread adoption of electric transportation, there needs to be infrastructure in place that not only makes charging a vehicle convenient, but financially beneficial for the site owner. With our product design, we give our customers truly scalable technology that grows with their site.’
