ClipperCreek, Inc. unveiled the HCS Series with ChargeGuard, which is an access control solution designed for fleet and workplace charging applications. 

The ChargeGuard option, priced at $78, delivers key-based access control for the Level 2, 240V ClipperCreek HCS Series product line, which starts at $565. 

According to the company, ChargeGuard allows station owners to issue keys to restrict usage and control electric utility expenses.

To use the ChargeGuard, drivers plug a vehicle in, insert the key into the station, and turn to start charging. The key can be removed and power will be available until the vehicle is disconnected. The key could also be left in place in the “on” position for open access charging.

There are a wide variety of applications for the ChargeGuard. Fleet managers can use it to restrict charging location to specific fleet vehicles for data gathering. 

Features of the ChargeGuard enabled HCS include:

  • Multiple key options - purchase identical or varied keys for a location.
  • More reliable than complicated communications based access control.
  • No internet connection required for station and user portals.
  • No employee training required.
  • No software updates to phone and browser apps.
  • No complex web-based user interface and smart phone apps.
  • Integrated cable wrap making storing the cable simple and convenient.
  • Next generation SAE-J1772 connector with optional padlock feature.
  • No assembly required.
