The Limpet would be best suited to a car park environment as a long-dwell time solution.

The LimpetOverview

Our wall-mounted solution, the Limpet is made from recycled tyres and is designed to fit onto existing wall structures, connected in clusters of 5-10 sockets to a wall-mounted master charger unit, monitoring and controlling power flow to the socket and vehicle. Durable, discrete and environmentally sympathetic, it is best suited for public / private below-ground and multi-storey car parks where ground-mounted solutions are less appropriate. As are all our products, the Limpet is designed for environments where there is prolonged dwell time, offering a 7kW charge.

Frequently asked questionsFAQs

How are the Connected Kerb charge points ‘future-proof’?

The Connected Kerb Limpet consists of two components:  
 
  • A socket (the Limpet) which the EV charging cable plugs into 
  • A power and data pack, installed within a separate protective box, which delivers the charge and can host censors, such as, parking censors  
The Limpet design is intended to help maximise the life of the charge point by:   

  • Vulnerable electronic components are protected in the separate box 
  • Ease of maintenance 
  • Passive infrastructure can be activated later when demand soars without further need for disruptive construction

Are Connected Kerb charge points rapid, fast or slow?

Our charge points are up to 7-22kWh and are classified as slow - fast chargers, they’re designed specifically for areas where dwell time is prolonged.

What are the benefits of slow charging?

Slow charging places less stress on the vehicle’s battery and the electrical grid. It's also a 'quicker', more convenient way to charge if you know your dwell time is going to be significant. For example, plugging in when you get home in the evenings, going about your nightly routine, waking up in the morning with a charged car and no need to hang around waiting at a destination or fast charger.

How long does it take to repair a Connected Kerb charge point?

Because we house the important parts of our system beneath the pavement, the repair times for the socket can be as quick as 24 hours.

What does smart charging involve?

Smart charging undertakes localised load balancing to prevent any potential overload to the electrical grid.
