Product link
DigiNow Super Charger V2.
Notes
Limited orders made for the V1 through 2016 have been upgraded to a two module version of the V2.
Ordering is now generally available at a scaling price by having a modular assembly.
Features
Made of 3.3kW modules in configurable numbers, up to 11.2kW for current Zero models' charging limits.
Tank Bag cowl area fitment for one module air-cooled.
Power Tank cowl area fitment for two modules air-cooled, and three modules with a yet-to-be-designed thermal management system.
Ordering
DigiNow's distributor in the UK is The English Electric Motor Co.
DigiNow sells directly outside of Europe.
Technology
V2 is based on (but not identical to) the TC HK-J 3.3 charger unit.
They limit themselves to lower amperage when connected to North American household voltage levels, which are typically designed for 15A at 110-120VAC.
They are made to run at full power on 208-240VAC, and they have also been tested to run at full power from ~170-360VDC
Cooling is provided by air-blowing fans; a liquid cooling system is also available by special request.
The Elcon variant's product page indicates that it can communicate over CAN bus, which requires a custom control module to tell it what to do for integration with Zero's systems to be safe and reliable.
Also, these chargers are electrically isolated, eliminating some design and handling issues with the V1 platform.
There is no controlling user interface currently provided, but DigiNow has stated they intend to add Bluetooth / BLE support (including for units already shipped), implying some kind of mobile application to communicate over a protocol.
