ABB E-Mobility Earns CTEP and NTEP Certifications for DC Fast Chargers

ABB E-Mobility's DC fast chargers include its Build America, Buy America compliant chargers made in its South Carolina facility.


ABB E-mobility said it is the first manufacturer to earn both NTEP and CTEP certifications for DC fast chargers. These certifications mean that the chargers have been witness tested in approved laboratory conditions for compliance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Handbook 44 (HB 44). Additionally, the California Division of Measurement Standards oversees the CTEP certification program for chargers operating within the state with similar compliance requirements.

These notable certifications cover the company's best-selling Terra 124 and Terra 184 chargers designed to support public charging operations for both light duty vehicles and fleets in the United States. Under the CTEP and NTEP programs chargers engaged in the sale of electricity to EVs must show the amount of electricity dispensed, the unit price, and the total price.

ABB E-Mobility's DC fast chargers, including its Build America, Buy America compliant chargers made in its Columbia, South Carolina facility can meet the metering requirements defined by these programs. Additionally, the Terra 184 enables NEVI charging programs to meet hardware standards, connectivity demands, and services that support 97% uptime requirements. Production began early this year and Terra 184 DC fast chargers produced in South Carolina have already been installed along American highways.

In addition to these industry-first DC fast charging certifications, ABB E-mobility has also obtained CTEP certification for the Terra AC Wallbox in its 40 A and 80 A configurations, which are ideal for commercial and fleet applications. ABB E-mobility collaborated with software partner Chargelab to meet the software compliance requirements for this CTEP certified AC charging solution.

"Meeting market needs and providing a transparent and positive customer experience are integral to a growing e-mobility industry," said Asaf Nagler, Vice President of External Affairs for ABB E-mobility in North America. "Earning these important certifications underscores our commitment to highly reliable and trustworthy charging infrastructure which serves all EV drivers."
