Blink Charging Co. a leading owner and operator of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, announced the introduction of an innovative pole mounting kit for the Company’s IQ 200 EV charging stations.
“We are extremely excited about this pole mounting kit as it substantially increases the number of locations that can deploy EV chargers. Imagine utilizing existing streetside and parking lot lighting infrastructure to bring EV charging to drivers. We are already working on opportunities to utilize this charger design to bring on-street parking to urban areas where EV drivers do not have access to residential chargers,” commented Michael D. Farkas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Blink. “We believe this will be a game-changer to realize significant growth in 2021.”
The pole mounting kit is a mounting bracket and hardware kit used to attach Blink IQ 200 charging stations to any new or existing pole, tested to handle Blink’s approximate 35-pound load charger. The pole mounting system is also beneficial in communities transitioning their streetlights into power-efficient LED systems. These LED system lights allow the excess power to operate the pole-mounted EV charging station, turning every streetlight into a potential charging destination.
The Company recently announced the IQ 200 Cable Management Solution ensuring the area around its chargers is organized and free of tripping hazards. Like the Cable Management Solution, the pole mounting kit can be used on both new and existing charging station installations.
“These two new products further evidences our focus on bringing to market solutions for all locations. The continued emphasis on charger and installation flexibility highlights our commitment to making EV charging accessible,” finished Farkas.
The new IQ 200 accessories are available for new or existing equipment hosts.
