P1905 includes wireless communications. For example, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt has a 66-kWh lithium-ion battery and a 7.2-kW onboard charging module (OBCM); with an EPA range of 259 miles (417 km) and energy efficiency of 118 MPGe (5.55 km/kWh),[19] it can use its portable charge cord charge at AC Level 1 (120 V, 12 A) to get up to 4 miles (6 km) of range per hour or go off a AC Level 2 charging unit (240 V, 32 A) to get up to 25 miles (40.2 km) of range per hour. [11] All plug types - including Type 1 (SAE), Type 2 (VDE) and Type 3 - share the same specifications for the pilot pin taken from the IEC 61851-1 standard. Blink Charging Co. is an owner, operator and provider of EV charging stations and services. Blink Charging Co. operates as an electric vehicle charging stations. Hollywood, Florida, Feb. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --. [7] It is anticipated that Blink's technology will be used for the Amazon Key service. Products compatible with SAE J1772-2009 include: The proposal of the Mennekes connector initiated by RWE and Daimler has been added as a "Type 2" implementation to IEC 62196 (IEC Type 2) providing a single and three phase coupler. The vehicle can request a charging state by setting a resistor; using 2.7 kΩ a Mode 3 compatible vehicle is announced (vehicle detected) which does not require charging. Under IEC 62196 the Proximity Pin is also used to indicate the cable capacity - this is relevant for non-tethered EVSEs. Blink Charging intends to use the net proceeds from the public offering to repay certain of its outstanding debt, for deployment of charging stations, and for working capital and general corporate purposes. In 2014, the company had a Kickstarter campaign for their indoor security camera, which raised over … The underwriters have retained the right to exercise the balance of their over-allotment option within the 45-day time period. In 2008 the CARB published a draft amendment to Title 13 section 1962.2 that mandated the usage of the oncoming SAE J1772 standard beginning with the 2010 model year;[6] this was approved in 2012.[7]. The round 43-millimetre (1.7 in) diameter connector has five pins, with three different pin sizes (starting with the largest), for each of:[citation needed], A 1 kHz square wave at ±12 volts generated by the EVSE on the control pilot line to detect the presence of the vehicle, communicate the maximum allowable charging current, and control charging begin/end. This Level 2 AC charge station enable electric vehicle to get a complete charge overnight while in the safety your garage or the driveway of your house. Amazon has temporarily stopped sales of the recently launched Blink XT2 smart camera. SAE J1772 (IEC 62196 Type 1), also known as a J plug, is a North American standard for electrical connectors for electric vehicles maintained by the SAE International and has the formal title "SAE Surface Vehicle Recommended Practice J1772, SAE Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Coupler". Blink Charging has granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 652,950 shares of common stock and/or warrants to purchase 1,305,900 shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, if any. ChargePoint was founded in 2007. Formerly electric vehicles like the General Motors EV1 had used inductive charger couplers. Blink (Clarice Fong Ferguson) is a fictional character, a superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics She first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #317 (October 1994) and was created by writer Scott Lobdell and artist Joe Madureira.She is a mutant who can teleport herself and others at will. The connector became standard equipment in the U.S. market due to the availability of charging stations with that plug type in the nation's electric vehicle network (with the help of funding such as ChargePoint America program drawing grants from provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act). The company was initially started as Immedia Semiconductor Inc in 1987, but pivoted into a consumer electronics company. This causes the resistance to change on the proximity pin which commands the vehicle's onboard charger to stop drawing current immediately. It also offers EV charging equipment and connectivity to the Blink Network, a cloud-based software which operates, manages and tracks the Blink EV charging stations and all the associated data. Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink Charging” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services, announced the closing of its previously announced underwritten public offering of 4,353,000 units, each unit consisting of one share of common stock and two warrants each to purchase one share of common stock. Investors may also obtain these documents at no cost by visiting the Securities and Exchange Commission's website at www.sec.gov. There are also (passive) adapters available that can convert J1772-2009 to IEC Type 2 and vice versa. Blink HQ, a new family of home electric vehicle (EV) charging products, enables you to charge your vehicle up to six (6) times faster than with the typical charging cord at your house. Headquartered in Florida with offices in Arizona and California, Blink Charging’s business is designed to accelerate EV adoption. The only difference is that most European versions have an on-board charger that can take advantage of three-phase electric power with higher voltage and current limits even for the same basic electric vehicle model (such as Chevrolet Volt / Opel Ampera). [57], TABLE 4-7: RESISTOR CODING FOR PLUGS (IEC 61851-22, ANNEX B), "SAE Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Coupler, SAE J1772, REV. In June 2017, ChargePoint took over 9,800 electric vehicle charging spots from GE.

The common stock and the warrants began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on February 14, 2018, under the symbols BLNK and BLNKW, respectively. [12] Seven car makers (Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Hyundai, Porsche, Volvo, and Volkswagen) had agreed to introduce the “Combined Charging System” in mid-2012. This protocol does not require integrated circuits, which would be required for other charging protocols, making the SAE J1772 robust and operable through a temperature range of −40 °C to +85 °C. [1] It covers the general physical, electrical, communication protocol, and performance requirements for the electric vehicle conductive charge system and coupler. These were ruled out in favor of conductive coupling to supply electricity for recharging with the board settling upon the SAE J1772-2001 standard [2] as the charging interface for electric vehicles in California in June 2001. If the circuit is closed, then the charging station can also test the protective earth to be functional. Above 640µs, the formula requires subtraction of 640µs and multiplying the remainder by 2.5. Amazon announced in December 2017 that they had acquired the company. This is useful, for example, at RV parks where TT-30 ("Travel Trailer" - 120 V, 30 A) receptacles are common. On August 17, 2017, Car Charging Group Inc. changed its name to Blink Charging Co. [23] The SAE defines the ampacity value to be derived by a formula based on the 1 ms full cycle (of the 1 kHz signal) with the maximum continuous ampere rating being 0.6 A per 10 µs up to 640µs (with the lowest 100 µs x .6 A = 6 A). CCS Combo 1 extension adds two extra high-current DC pins underneath, and the two Alternating Current (AC) pins for Neutral and Line 1 are not populated. [9] The companies participating in or supporting the revised 2009 standard include smart, Chrysler, GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Tesla. Their electrical ratings are specified as follows: As noted in Appendix M of the SAE J1772 standard document, a third AC charge method was also considered but it was never implemented. Prior to that point, ChargePoint managed 34,900 charging stations across Mexico, Australia, Canada, and the United States. [16], The connector is designed to withstand 10,000 mating cycles (a connection and a disconnection) and exposure to the elements. The warrants have a per share exercise price of $4.25, are exercisable immediately, and will expire five years from the date of issuance. Forward-Looking StatementsThis press release includes certain disclosures which contain forward-looking statements including without limitation, statements regarding the anticipated timing of completion of the offering and are made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. [10] The SAE J1772 connector is considered a “Type 1” implementation providing a single phase coupler.[11]. Switching to 880 Ω the vehicle is ready to be charged and switching to 240 Ω the vehicle requests with ventilation charging in which case charging power is only supplied if the area is ventilated (i.e., outdoors). According to the SAE it includes socket outlet, cable and vehicle inlet. The SAE J1772-2009 was adopted by the car manufacturers of post-2000 electric vehicles like the third generation of the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf as the early models. [8] On January 14, 2010 the SAE J1772 REV 2009 was adopted by the SAE Motor Vehicle Council. In the US, the definition of the ampacity (ampere capacity, or current capacity) is split for continuous and short term operation. The resistor is coded to the maximum current capability of the cable assembly. In Poppyseed of 2019, Amazon rolled out patches in response to a research citing vulnerabilities in the Blink XT2 security camera systems found by vulnerability detection firm Tenable. In North America and Japan, the Chevrolet Volt,[29] Nissan Leaf,[30] Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Mitsubishi PHEV, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, Smart electric drive, Ford Focus EV, Ford Fusion Energi, Honda Clarity (Electric and Plug-in Hybrid), Kia Soul EV, Fiat 500e, and Mercedes-Benz GLC 350e PHEV all come with 120 V portable charging leads that couple a 120 V mains plug to the car's J1772 receptacle; in the countries where 220-230 V domestic mains electricity is common, the portable EVSE leads commonly supplied with the vehicle can perform a level 2 charge from a domestic mains plug, albeit at a lower current than a dedicated high-current charging station. [4][5]), The CARB regulation of 2001 mandated the usage of SAE J1772-2001 beginning with the 2006 model year. About Blink Charging Co.:Blink Charging is one of the leaders in nationwide public electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, enabling EV drivers to easily charge at locations throughout the United States. However this level of 120 V charging has not been codified into J1772. Control Pilot (Current limit): The charging station can use the wave signal to describe the maximum current that is available via the charging station with the help of pulse width modulation: a 16% PWM is a 10 A maximum, a 25% PWM is a 16 A maximum, a 50% PWM is a 32 A maximum and a 90% PWM flags a fast charge option. , ensuring the safety of charging even in wet conditions December 2017 that they had acquired the company was started!
