Savant Systems Inc. has added a premium EV charger as part of their suite of energy management products. The LVL 2 EV Charger complements the already robust Savant Power System platform that includes intelligent load management and monitoring, scalable battery storage solutions, and environmental controls including lighting and climate solutions.
Savant partnered with Schumacher Electric, a leader in automotive power conversion and battery products, to design and deliver an intelligent EV charger specifically for the control manufacturer’s ecosystem and sold exclusively. The charger is a hardwired 240-volt solution capable of delivering up to 50 amps of output, with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for simplified installation and configuration.
The lockable, ergonomically designed charging wand has a 25-foot cable with universal connector that can be stored on either the right or left side of the unit based on user-preference and mounting location.
The Savant LVL 2 EV Charger delivers useful features on its own, but when installed as part of a Savant Power System it delivers added visibility and control. When connected to a Savant Power Module, the LVL 2 EV Charger enables homeowners to monitor energy consumption trends, manage power usage by automatically powering down other high-current devices while actively charging, and to schedule charging, intelligently avoiding peak utility rates.
“Savant is proud to have partnered with Schumacher Electric, a highly respected manufacturer with a well-deserved 75-year legacy of quality,” said JC Murphy, president of Savant. “The Schumacher team shares [our] spirit of innovation and together we have built an exciting roadmap that will deliver useful smart features to every homeowner that is focused on moving toward electrification.”
“For 75 years, Schumacher has been delivering innovative power conversion products of exceptional quality at an excellent value,” said Mickey Leech, Schumacher CEO. “We’re excited to partner with Savant and share our new Level 2 Charger that provides superior power with a top-of-the-line design. It is the perfect addition to their smart home experience.”
The Savant LVL 2 EV Charger will be available for dealers to purchase on the Savant Store beginning October 2022, $1,100 U.S. MSRP.
