Solving for UL as EV Charger OEMs Expand into North America

As electric vehicles (EVs) continue to gain momentum, the demand for Level 2 and Level 3 EV Chargers is increasing at an exponential rate. The race to produce reliable, efficient and safe charging systems has become increasingly competitive, with manufacturers from around the world vying for market share. With many leading manufacturers of Level 2 and Level 3 EV Chargers having their roots in Europe, there are some challenges that need to be met prior to large scale success in North America.

One of the most significant challenges is creating UL listed versions of their cabinets to meet North American electrical standards. This requirement is essential to ensure that the charger is safe for users and that it adheres to strict regulations. Without a UL listing, manufacturers are not allowed to sell their charging stations in North America.

This is where Universal Air Filter (UAF) comes in. As a leading custom manufacturer of air filters and enclosure solutions, UAF has the expertise to help manufacturers meet UL requirements. Additionally, UAF is ROHS and REACH compliant, making it a standardized solution for both the EU and NA markets for charger OEMs.

UAF’s expertise in manufacturing and adherence to Made in America requirements also means that we can help manufacturers access government NEVI funding. This can be a significant advantage for manufacturers looking to expand into the United States.

UAF’s custom manufacturing capabilities also allow them to retrofit solutions with a more cleanable, lower pressure drop and water-resistant solution with the PentaVent product. This product meets NEMA 3R enclosure protection standards, ensuring that the charger is well-protected from the elements.

If you are a Level 2 or Level 3 EV Charger manufacturer looking to expand into the United States, UAF can help you meet UL requirements, adhere to Made in America requirements, and provide a standardized solution that meets both EU and NA markets.
