Every year more electric vehicles (EVs) hit the road and newer EVs can travel farther than ever. For most EVs, AC charging is enough, but there are times when faster charging is necessary. The ARK EF040 is the right station for those occasions; whether you want to complement an AC charging program or need fueling for longer distance trips.
ARK’s EF040 is a compact, reliable, and robust DC fast charger capable of charging all EVs on the market. This all-in-one unit is small enough to suit your site’s configuration and maximize your parking space without need for expensive site modifications. Lightweight but strong, easy to install and cost-effective, the EF040 is a smart DC fast charging option.

I. The professional technical team and long-term vision of the industry ensure that we are always in the industry leading position. We offer a wide range of product options: charging stations for various charging standards, international standardization design, and smart back-end services.
II. Our products have passed various application scenarios and laboratory standard tests. You can buy our charging station products without any concerns and receive our professional service support.
III. The only Chinese EV Charger vendor who is willing and able to achieve CE and UL certificate currently.
IV. Our team members are the first batch of sales and engineers who is working in developing and selling global standard EV DC Charger which ensure we have plenty of experience implement global EV DC charger projects and have the foresight to lead EV charger products.
2. Is there any experience in implementing overseas charging station projects?
Yes, actually we are the pioneers in implementing overseas charger projects. Till now, we cooperate with UK power company to integrate EV charger with PV system, with US charging operator to install dozens of EV DC charger along the Freeway from LA to San Francisco, with GM automaker to provide DC fast charging service to their Bolt EV fleet and several charging projects.
3. What are the advantages of your products?
I. Telecom level product design and production.
II. Multiple charging standards support including CCS-1/2, CHAdeMO and GB/T, which means we can offer you all standards EV DC charger you want.
III. Quality comes first with wider input & output voltage range, lower voltage output range, better temperature adapted, higher protection grade, a longer technical foresight and most advanced modular design.
IV. Fast customer response, prefessional technical support and more solutions come out.
4. Can you explain the differences of global DC fast charging standards?
Till now, there are 5 kinds of DC fast charging standards: CCS-1, CCS-2. CHAdeMO, GB/T and Tesla.
CCS-1: DC fast charging standard for North America. Typical charging EVs: Chevy Bolt.
CCS-2: DC fast charging standard for Europe. Typical charging EVs: BMW i3, VW e-Golf, Porsche Mission-e.
CHAdeMO: DC fast charging standard for Japan. Typical charging EVs: Nissan Leaf.
GB/T: DC fast charging standard for China. Typical charging EVs: BYD, JAC, BAIC.
Tesla: DC fast charging standard for Tesla only. Typical charging EVs: Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3.
5. Does the higher the charging station output power mean the faster the charging speed?
No, it doesn't. Due to the limited power of the car battery at this stage, when the output power of the DC charger reaches a certain upper limit, the larger power does not bring a faster charging speed.
However, the significance of high-power DC charger is that it can support dual connectors and simultaneously output high power to charge two electric vehicles at the same time, and in the future, when the electric vehicle battery is improved to support higher power charging, it is not necessary to invest money again to upgrade the charging station.
