Charger manufacturer Tritium has launched a new software update for its RT50 DC fast chargers, enabling Plug and Charge technology globally. The update allows any EV that supports Plug and Charge to initiate charging and authorize payments without needing an RFID card or smartphone app.
“Tritium is 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,” said Tritium CTO James Kennedy. “This latest software update improves the customer experience across the board with seamless and secure payment options available through Plug and Charge. This technology makes EV charging as easy as plugging in a phone.”
“Tritium is creating an environment where EV charging is beating the gas station experience by removing an entire payment step,” said Tritium Chief Revenue Officer David Toomey. “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.”
