EVBox accelerates towards digital transformation with 3D BIM CAD product catalog powered by CADENAS
Digital twins of EVBox BusinessLine and EVBox Elvi charging stations support the expansion of e-mobility
Since 2010, the Amsterdam-based EVBox Group has been helping companies build a sustainable, future-oriented infrastructure with flexible and scalable charging stations for electric vehicles. With more than 200,000 charging stations in more than 70 locations worldwide, EVBox is one of the most important pioneers in the field of electric mobility. The company focuses on user-friendly solutions for both companies and private households with intelligent features such as Smart Charging. These functions enable the optimization of the charging infrastructure by distributing the available power flexibly and thus efficiently over the charging period. Among other things, this helps to avoid unnecessary costs such as additional charges due to capacity peaks.
With the launch of their 3D BIM CAD product catalog powered by CADENAS for the EVBox BusinessLine and EVBox Elvi charging stations, EVBox is taking another important step towards digital transformation. Especially architects and building planners benefit from the new 3D BIM CAD models. The charging stations can now be integrated into existing 3D project designs with just a few clicks. This way, errors can be avoided already in the planning phase, which means enormous time savings: "Similar to fiber optic cables, charging stations are becoming indispensable when constructing or renovating buildings. With the introduction of a freely accessible digital product catalog of EVBox charging stations, we want to simplify the work of architects and civil engineers in terms of industry-specific regulations," says Corinne Frasson, Director EVBox France.
Optimized planning process for building parking lots thanks to 3D BIM CAD models
For manufacturers like EVBox it is becoming increasingly important to enrich their product data with digital Building Information Modeling (BIM) data. BIM data is already mandatory for many public tenderings, for example in the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Denmark, Finland and Norway. As civil engineers and architects increasingly pre-model their buildings in 3D, the 3D BIM CAD models of EVBox charging stations can be easily integrated into the designs of building parking lots after their configuration and download.
The digital product catalog from CADENAS enables easy configuration of EVBox charging stations, for example depending on the desired number and power of charging points. Subsequently, the product data can be downloaded in more than 150 native and neutral CAD and BIM formats, such as Autodesk Revit, Nemetschek ALLPLAN, ArchiCAD, Autodesk Inventor, NX, Solid Edge, PTC Creo Parametric, AutoCAD, CATIA or SOLIDWORKS. In addition, the product information is provided in two different Levels of Development (LOD) relevant for the respective construction phases.
Digital twins support expansion of charging infrastructure for electric cars
The development and expansion of a user-friendly and widespread charging infrastructure for electric cars is essential for a future with sustainable mobility. Philippe Gateau, General Manager of CADENAS France, is excited to support this process by providing 3D BIM CAD models of the EVBox charging stations: "CADENAS is proud to cooperate with EVBox, a major player in the field of charging stations for electric vehicles. As a trailblazer in its industry, EVBox is also a pioneer in providing digital twins for its products. It is a strategic decision: there is a real need in the market and the digital offering has previously been too limited."
