Raiven adds DCC Electric Systems to Platform
New addition expands access to parts for electric vehicle (EV) management systems in multi-family and single-family residences.
IRVINE, Calif., August 23, 2022 – Raiven, a leading group purchasing program and procurement platform, announced today the addition of DCC electric systems to the Raiven Marketplace. This addition will expand Raiven’s growing access to cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) energy management systems for their members, including DCC-9 and DCC-12 systems. Each of these systems supports EV charging infrastructure for single and multi-family residents and property owners, including apartments and condominiums.
DCC-9 and DCC-12 system benefits
DCC is a unique energy management system that is designed to allow for the connection of any EV charger to a fully loaded panel without the need for a costly panel upgrade. This procedure does not affect the load calculation. Within DCC, DCC-9 and DCC-12 systems offer distinct advantages for differing EV charging needs. DCC-9 is designed for charger installation in multi-family residential buildings while DCC-12 is an ideal setup for installing EV chargers within single-family homes with fully loaded electrical panels.
Differences between DCC-9 and DCC-12 systems
DCC-9 installation is required when a condominium or apartment complex’s electrical panel reaches full capacity and when the electric meters may be accessed through parking spaces. Exterior installations in these types of multi-unit complexes require DCC-9-3R systems.
DCC-12 is designed for single-family properties as an alternative to a sub panel when the main breaker panel has reached its maximum load capacity. DCC-12 differs from other systems like the DCC-9 in that there is no intermediary circuit breaker dividing the electrical panel from the EV charger. A NEMA 3R enclosure, which is implemented for both indoor installations and outdoor installations, is utilized by DCC-12.
For multi-family residential properties, DCC installations are typically located in the electrical room. DCC-12 and DCC-9-3R are commonly used for exterior installations as well.
