Suitable for indoors or outdoors, it offers fast and efficient 3-phase charging at maximum speeds for either ‘everyday’ or frequent use by single or multiple users and EVs.

Type 2 Plug: Designed for use in Australia with 3-phase compatible electric vehicles. Popular EVs with 3 phase charging compatibility include the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y (Long Range and Performance models), Hyundai IONIQ 5, Kia EV6, MG ZS EV, Nissan LEAF e+, Ford Mustang Mach-E (GT and California Route 1 models), Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron GT and the Mercedes-Benz EQS.
Premium user experience with controlled access and monitoring
The Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW is designed for convenient, secure, optimised charging. Through Wifi or Bluetooth, the easy-to-use Smart App offers remote monitoring and controls allowing you to set and schedule charging configurations, check charging status, set maximum monthly charging values, view previous charging data and update firmware. You can also update/reprogram your RFID cards and reset passwords to manage access and prevent unauthorised use. Other great features include the LED which provides live feedback on charging progress and a charging indicator light to notify you when charging is complete. The handy 6-metre charging cable provides easy access for EV changeovers and versatility in homes and commercial locations.
Five RFID on/off cards are included with the Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW for ‘tap to start’ charging (more cards can be added on request, please enquire). With a simple ‘tap’ the unit beeps and commences charging (and is just as easily turned off again with another tap and beep). Keep your charger plugged in and start/stop charging using the Smart App remotely (great for maximising solar power), even when you’re offsite. We’ve made it a smooth, easy no-fuss process. Use of the RFID card feature is optional and can be turned on/off via the Smart App which is handy if a user loses their card, or if you don’t have your card with you (as you can then operate the charger directly from your phone, via the App).
Powerful and durable for fast-charging and frequent use
The Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger provides 22kW of the fastest 3 phase charging (the maximum capacity of most modern electric vehicles) providing the quickest charge available for frequent or long-distance drivers and fast fleet change overs. It has a IP65-rated case (patented design) that’s durable and robust to support high-usage and being completely dust and watertight, it’s safe and functional for indoor or outdoor use in residential, commercial or industrial environments.
Solar compatible 3 phase EV charger: fast-charge with renewable energy!
The Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW is fully-compatible with existing solar systems where 3-phase power is available. If you are looking to save money and meet sustainability targets, fast-charging with solar power is an environmentally friendly, cost-effective solution for your home or business. Optimise your energy usage by timing your charges when solar is most available. Start and stop the charging process remotely when you are closed or offsite using the App and charge your fleet when it’s sunny (or charge it on a Sunday!). You can also set your charging to solar (or grid power) only, or both.
Reliable, safe and SAA approved keeping your assets protected
Plusrite EV chargers are designed and built to Australian Standards and SAA Certified to ensure that all users are 100% safe including your staff, drivers, clients and customers (or your family, if you are installing your 3-phase EV charger at home). The advanced electrical safety features also keep your electric vehicles, your electricity system and commercial assets protected from electrical damage. These include over and under voltage protection, overcurrent protection, CP signal short-circuit protection, over temperature protection, lightning protection and contractor adhesion protection.
The Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW also features an emergency off/reset button, leakage detection button and dynamic loading box with LED screen with increase/decrease buttons. Dynamic Load Balancing (DLB) will balance the demand on your power supply to protect it from overloading while you charge your EV, meaning that the Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW can be safely used simultaneously with other appliances or machinery at your home or business.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a 3 phase EV charger take to charge an EV?
A 3-phase charger will charge an EV (3-phase compatible) in around 4-6 hours. A single-phase charger can take 8-12 hours.
What are the benefits of installing a 3 phase EV charger?
There are many benefits of installing a 3 phase EV charger:
- Drastically faster charging (up to 22kW AC vs 7.4kW AC for single phase EV chargers)
- Reduced charging time (great for EVs with larger battery packs)
- Future-proofing (ensure compatibility for your future EVs when it’s time to upgrade)
- Cheaper charging (charge faster during off-peak periods)
- Preserve your EV battery (reduce wear and tear and extend its lifespan)
- Maximise solar energy consumption (save more by charging fast when its sunny)
It’s also important to note that 3 phase EV charger installation requires onsite 3 phase power availability and EVs to be charged need to be 3 phase compatible.
What does RFID stand for?
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a wireless technology that provides communication using radio waves between a reader device and an object (e.g. a RFID card). RFID cards are often utilised for EV chargers with multiple users to provide safe, secure and authorised charging. The Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW comes with five RFID cards (more can be added on request – please enquire).
Why should I choose a 3 phase charger with dynamic load balancing (DLB)?
Dynamic Load Balancing (DLB) will balance the demand on your power supply to protect it from overloading while you charge your EV, meaning that the Plusrite 3 Phase EV Charger 22kW can be safely used simultaneously with other appliances or machinery at your home or business.
How does it work? When appliances or machinery are being used, the EV Charger uses less current. As appliances or machinery become idle, more current becomes available for EV Charging.
