Gilbarco Veeder-Root and Coulomb Technologies have partnered to lead development and commercialization of products that will enable the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Campbell Calif.-based Coulomb Technologies has developed a complete smart charging solution
for plug-in vehicles. The company’s Smartlet Charging Stations are individually controlled through the wireless Smartlet Communications Network and the ChargePoint Network Operating System.
Smartlet Charging Stations perform bi-directional energy metering and control, user authentication, and 802.15.4 wireless local area network technology, which enable a subscription model through communication with a data center.
“Supporting the development of a recharging infrastructure for the transportation industry is important to us and our customers,” said Richard Browne, Gilbarco’s vice president of marketing for North America. “This partnership expands our industry-leading portfolio of equipment for alternative fuels.”
Browne pointed out that the Gilbarco/Coulomb partnership complements and supports the exciting new vehicles being announced by General Motors, Chrysler and others.
Gilbarco Veeder-Root is one of the industry’s leading provider of fueling equipment for retail and fleet operators. The company offers a wide selection of equipment for alternative and emerging fuels.
