This refers to the V2 of DigiNow's charger product as released in early 2017.
- V2.5 started shipping in early 2018 as a control-board upgrade of this product.
- Product link
- DigiNow Super Charger V2.
- 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.
- 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.
- DigiNow's distributor in the UK is The English Electric Motor Co.
- DigiNow sells directly outside of Europe.
- 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.
