Heliox, a Siemens business and producer of DC charging systems for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, launched its new Heliox 60 charger.

“The compact and versatile 60 kW EV charger is certified (UL2202, CSA C22.2, Energy Star) and made specifically for the North American market,” according to a press release. “Building on the success of the 50 kW charger that helped Heliox gain significant market share in 2021, the Buy-American compliant Heliox 60 represents an enhanced iteration of cost-effective, low-power DC charging. The solution satisfies most DC charging use cases today.

“The Heliox 60 delivers an impressive 150 A output, capable of delivering full 60 kW for both traditional 400-volt and modern 800-volt vehicles. Standing out as one of the most compact and power-dense chargers available, the product features a single CCS-1 (SAE J1772) output, with plans to incorporate NACS (SAE J3400) and multi-output configurations. Additionally, the unit allows for a 30 kW version within the same cabinet design.”

“Since first ramping up the U.S. team, the Heliox 60 was destined to be a staple in our product portfolio,” Heliox U.S. President David Aspinwall said. “There are many exciting collaborations and pilots focused on high-power and megawatt charging systems (MCS), but application-appropriate power and high-value chargers are paramount in the present state of the EV industry.”

“Designed with scalability and convenience in mind, the Heliox 60’s form factor allows for low-profile installations and is complemented by a range of accessories including a floor-mounted pedestal, cable management solutions, and a mobile cart configuration similar to the 50 kW predecessor. The new chargers feature an LCD display and high-visibility LED energy status bars,” the release added.

As part of Siemens’ acquisition of Heliox announced earlier this year, the Heliox 60 will also be available through select Siemens distributors in addition to Sourcewell and partnerships with leading vehicle OEMs and developers.

“Ongoing interoperability testing guarantees seamless operation with the newest medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Additionally, all Heliox chargers leverage Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) for cloud-based monitoring and control,” according to the release. “Now a Siemens business, Heliox complements Siemens’ existing eMobility charging portfolio, adding products and solutions ranging from 30 kW to 1MW for depots and en-route charging, with a focus on DC fast charging for eBus and eTruck fleets.”
