    Introduction to EV charging displays

    As more people own electric cars and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), the electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) infrastructure will need to support all of the extra battery-powered vehicles on the road. To address the quickly growing demand, EVSE components should be low cost and quick to set up. A charging station typically includes...
