Charging Stations For Every Fleet
The Cyber Switching CSE 1 charging station is one of the best EV fleet charging solutions for fleet owners who want to get a full management control of their electric vehicles charging status using a single app.
This will allow fleet operators to keep employee vehicles, workforce fleets, delivery fleets, municipal cars, public transportations, and taxi fleets fully charged to provide maximum productivity and full time operation for your business or organization with a non-contaminating mobility option.
The Perfect EV Charging Solution For Fleets
The CSE1 charging station has been designed with OCPP in order to work with all types of standard management software. Pre-commissioned with AmpUp software, the CSE1 charging station will allow your fleet operator to:
- View real-time data and analysis
- Perform load management with Time-of-Use (TOU) optimization to minimize charging costs
- Manage multiple charging stations with the same account
- Scheduled charging for each vehicle.
- Enable user authentication with RFID technology to only allow your approved operators to charge the vehicle with your CSE1.
Designed with a capacity of up to 11.5kW and 48A, the CSE1 will be capable of charging a 70kWh battery vehicle in just about 6 hours, more than enough for EV fleet charging overnight.
Charging Electric-Vehicle Fleets: How It Works
Charging an EV fleet is easier than what it looks like. Thanks to our pre-commissioned management software, the vehicle drivers only need to park near the charging station after the workday is over and connect the charging connector to the car.
Meanwhile, the fleet operator will be able to schedule charging times for the vehicles according to the most convenient electricity rates available for the utility using a user-friendly interface. The charger will automatically start charging at the programmed time to make use of lower electricity tariffs. By the next morning, the driver will arrive to the car and will see that the vehicle has been completely charged overnight and that is ready to travel again.
The Cyber Switching CSE1 provides fleet services with electric charging solutions equipped to offer a complete fleet EV charging management system that will allow your fleet operator to perform load management and have access to real-time monitoring of all electric vehicle fleets.
One of the most important benefits of electric vehicle fleet charging is to maximize savings and reduce operational costs. This can be done thanks to the better fuel-economy given that electricity prices are lower and less volatile than gasoline ones. This allows predictability, which is very complicated for gasoline since it is linked to geopolitical conflicts. Utilities have also enabled special TOU tariffs that can be used for fleet EV charging at lower electricity rates.
Less Maintenance – Same Safety
Given that electric vehicles have less moving parts and are less complex than gasoline ones, EVs will have lower maintenance requirements than gasoline ones. This maximizes operational time for the fleets as vehicles will not constantly be out of operation due to multiple repairs. Likewise, safety parameters for electric vehicles and gasoline ones are very similar.
Electric vehicles are very powerful and efficient machines. While charging an electric fleet will give you an 85-90% efficiency, an ICE fleet will only be about 20% efficient. This means an electric vehicle uses almost to the fullest all the potential energy that is provided to it. Additionally, thanks to V2X technology, electric cars can be used as a source of power as well.
Build A Sustainable Business By Electrifying Your Fleet
Falling electric vehicle costs, favorable US policies and widespread availability have driven the sales of electric vehicles higher than ever. Some of the profiles with more interest in electric vehicle technology are the fleet operators or owners who want to learn what a shift to a sustainable fleet of vehicles could do for their business.
While electric vehicles have on average a higher capital cost than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, the higher efficiency, lower electricity price and the long distances covered by vehicle fleets have shown that they can lead to much lower operational cost for EVs. In other words, EV fleet charging will result in much lower costs than filling up gas tanks for a fleet.
These potential savings translate into competitive and even lower total cost of ownership (TCO) when comparing electric cars to gasoline models. By multiplying this effect on multiple cars as it would on an EV charging fleet, the potential savings for the business can become attractive.
Previous research studies have shown that the TCO for electric vehicles can be up to 15-25% less than that of ICE counterparts. By switching to an electric vehicle charging fleet, you can build a sustainable business that will lead to operational savings and that will make your potential customers see your company as a green-mind oriented business that concerns about the environment.
Find The Right Charging Stations For Your Fleet
EV fleet charging stations are necessary if you want to run your business with a full operational control. While public charging stations may be a valuable emergency option if your driver is running out of battery, they cannot be the source of your daily energy needs for your EV fleet. Many variables including charging spot availability, time and connector compatibility can stand in the way of your success.
The electric fleet operator will need EV fleet charging solutions readily available in order to charge the electric cars as needed during the night or during off-time operation in order to maximize uptime availability of the fleet during working hours and hence maximize earnings.
In order to find out how many and what size charging stations are needed, the EV fleet operator will need to find out what is the estimated daily consumption in kWh according to the average daily miles that the average fleet vehicle travels. Using a kWh/mile efficiency, it is possible to estimate what would be the equivalent amount of energy that the EV fleet charging stations would need to provide. Finally, by evaluating the charging window (time frame for charging) it will be possible to determine the power size requirement to match the desired delivered energy in the time frame needed.
With Cyber Switching CSE1 EV wide range of power size options you will be able to select the best option to match your quantity and speed requirements. Choose the CSE1 fleet charging stations to keep your EVs charged at all times and customize the charging system to your specific EV fleet charging needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the CSE1 Require Any Extra Equipment to Charge My EV?
<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>All that the Cyber Switching EV charging station needs is to have a direct connection to your local single-phase electricity supply at 240VAC through a circuit branch. Properly sized cables and an external OCPD will be required as per electrical code to connect the CSE1 to your main or sub electrical panel.</span>
Is the CSE1 Easy to Use?
<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Totally! LED status lights in the front of the EV charger show you whether the CSE1 is in standby mode, charging or waiting to start charging.</span>

What Power Rating is Better for Charging Electric Fleets?
<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>The higher the power rating of the EV charging station, the faster your EV will be completely charged. Depending on your need for charging speed, you will have to choose between 3.5kW, 7kW, 10kW or 11.5kW. To find out how many hours on average it would take to charge your EV fleet, search for the battery capacity of your electric vehicle and divide it by the power rating of the CSE1.</span>
