Management of fleet vehicles is a big responsibility; it requires reliable scheduling, employee communications, and accurate knowledge of each truck’s location. However, comfort in tried and tested routines can keep businesses from transforming their entire fleet into electric vehicles. Introducing EVs to the fleet can be exciting yet daunting from a manager’s perspective; it makes you think…
As you are probably familiar with by now, charging for fleets works just the same as charging commercial electric vehicles. A fleet ute has a particular route and timing each day, with identifiable idle parked hours. These parking periods are their charging windows. A level 2 charger can plug and recharge for hours at a time, such as overnight sessions, for the EV to be ready for the next drive. Level 3 chargers, also known as fast chargers, can be installed for quick and powerful top-ups. Since fleets are made up of more than a single vehicle, it’s a good idea to install several chargers for alternating vehicle use. Noodoe DC Exceed chargers are capable of true simultaneous charging, meaning they can charge two vehicles at the same time without sacrificing the electrical load.
Instead of regulating a vehicle’s fuel tank, an EV battery can be monitored via the same management platform as the charging station. Noodoe EV OS offers a comprehensive charging network platform with many benefits for fleet charging, such as site overview information and innovative scheduling systems. For example, fleet managers can set priorities via the Fleet Dashboard to make sure a vehicle charges to a battery target (or 100%) by their scheduled departure time. Smart Noodoe stations will divert more voltage to higher-priority vehicles while still supplying additional connected vehicles with charge.
Link vehicle telematics devices to all vehicles to view all the associated information! Noodoe EV OS has a dashboard specifically for this overview. Find a vehicle’s state of charge, current driving status, or total session duration time. It’s easy to associate all telematic devices to their vehicles, and the site managers can create nicknames for each vehicle for easier recognition than license plate memorisation. Event alerts are also the best way to stay updated on individual vehicles.
