Enhancing driver experience and customer convenience on DC fast chargers deployed globally.

[BRISBANE, Australia, March 16, 2021] — Coming off a year that proved to be pivotal for the electric mobility industry, Tritium has launched a new software update for their RT50 DC fast chargers, enabling Plug and Charge technology globally. The update allows an electric vehicle (EV) that supports Plug and Charge and Tritium’s RT50 chargers to communicate seamlessly and authorise payments directly from the driver’s account without needing a card or RFID tag. 

“Tritium committed to bringing the latest DC fast charging technology to our entire product line, whether they are brand new chargers or already in the ground. This latest software update improves customer experience across the board with seamless and secure payment options available through Plug and Charge,” said Tritium’s Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder James Kennedy. “This technology makes EV charging as easy as plugging in a phone.”

Plug and Charge technology promises to reshape the customer experience for the driver and enable the once-siloed approach to charging payments to be broken down, giving the most convenient experience for the EV driver. 

“With the world looking to adopt more renewable technologies, the e-mobility industry will grow substantially within the next few years,” said Tritium’s Chief Revenue Officer David Toomey. “Tritium is creating an environment where EV charging is beating the gas station experience by removing an entire payment step. Not only do drivers not need to concern themselves with finding a charger that is compatible with their vehicle, but now they also do not need to worry about how they are going to pay.”

In addition to this update, Tritium is dedicated to providing customers with the most up to date technology and is consistently upgrading its chargers to ensure customers have efficient and convenient solutions. Tritium has deployed this capability throughout its full line of chargers as the company fills the market with the most advanced charging technology there is to offer.
