The arrival of electric vehicles demands an increase in charging infrastructure. Like any electrical equipment that provides a significant amount of power, components in charging stations are prone to generating heat. Both the terminals and electric vehicle batteries generate heat during the charging process, posing potential fire risks and the risk of short circuit-related fires. Therefore, there is an urgent need for a new protective measure to safeguard buildings and their occupants. In fact, for this reason, operators actually recommend the use of monitoring devices.
Sunell, a global provider of "AI+Bi-spectrum" intelligent video solutions, offers a comprehensive range of thermal products to effectively manage this risk. Thermal cameras are capable of detecting abnormal temperature increases in charging stations or vehicles, providing timely alerts to car park operators before a fire occurs. In fact, they offer a faster detection method compared to conventional detectors. The solution incorporates Thermal & Optical Bi-Spectrum cameras, ensuring video verification from the optical lens to prevent false alarms. Each camera is georeferenced to specific levels and parking areas, enabling operators to visually locate incidents when detected.
With a variety of options available, both for indoor and outdoor use, Sunell's Electric Vehicle Charging Station Solution is highly flexible and can cater to the specific needs of any car park operator. There is also the option to integrate a thermal camera directly into the charging station itself for enhanced monitoring and safety.
Single Space Option
A Thermal & Optical Bi-Spectrum Network Turret Camera is strategically configured to dedicate its thermal lens to focus on the charging station, while the optical lens captures a clear view of the parking space and the vehicles parked there. This setup ensures effective monitoring of both the charging infrastructure and the vehicles, enhancing the overall security and surveillance of the electric vehicle charging station.
A Thermal & Optical Bi-spectrum Network Bullet Camera offers an expanded field of view, enabling greater distance between the camera and the parking space. This capability allows for broader coverage of the entire car park area, ensuring comprehensive surveillance and enhanced security.
A Thermal Imaging Camera For Continuous Condition Monitoring is directly installed within the charging station, enabling temperature monitoring from inside the unit. This option proves valuable when there are fewer charging stations or when securing the area is not required.
