Tritium Wins Good Design Awards for Excellence in Product and Engineering Design

Press Release 10/20/2021

The company takes home prizes in both the Engineering Design and Commercial & Industrial Product Design categories for their RTM electric vehicle DC fast charger. 

BRISBANE, Australia, October 20, 2021 — As charging infrastructure becomes more critical in enabling electric vehicle (EV) adoption, Tritium, a leader in direct current (DC) fast charging, has been awarded for its achievements in product and engineering design. The Australian Good Design Awards committee has recognized the company and its RTM fast charger in the engineering and product design categories for the commercial and industrial sectors. 

“The overall design and engineering of this product is very well considered. The charging system has multiple benefits — single technician installation, slim-line profile, fast charge (75km range in 10 minutes),” commented the Good Design Awards engineering design jury. “The RTM EV charger design is a good example of clean, sophisticated and functional design and engineering that will help reduce a key barrier to EV market expansion. Really impressive project and a standout example of good design in this category that deserves to be recognised. Well done.”

The RTM is a modular and upgradeable DC fast charger capable of rapidly powering more than one EV of any model at a time. The charger gives businesses the flexibility of a charger that can scale from 25kW to 50kW and 75kW.  

“A clean aesthetic and well considered design. The installation time of only 2 hours is impressive, as is the consideration of the user experience with the visual display and slimline design,” said the Good Design Awards product design jury. “It’s fast, easy to use and customisable. It will be an increasingly important and sought-after product as EVs gain traction in the market. A clean design that complements the functionality of the unit very well.”

The Australian Good Design Awards are one of the longest-running international design awards, promoting excellence in design and innovation since 1958. Recognized by the World Design Organization (WDO) as Australia’s peak international design endorsement and promotion program, these awards represent the diverse spectrum of design with 12 specific design disciplines covering more than 30 categories and sub-categories.

“We are excited to receive these awards as it validates Tritium’s industry-leading product design and Modular Scalable Charging architecture, which was launched in 2020,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “To achieve widespread adoption of electric transportation, there needs to be infrastructure in place that not only makes charging a vehicle convenient, but financially beneficial for the site owner. With our product design, we give our customers truly scalable technology that grows with their site.”

Each year, the program attracts new and innovative design projects worldwide, celebrating the best in all areas of design, architecture, engineering, research, and social innovation. 

“Receiving an Australian Good Design Award is testament to embedding design excellence at the heart of a product, service, place or experience. Although 2021 continues to be another challenging year, it is incredibly inspiring to see designers and businesses working together to find innovative, customer-centric design solutions to local and global challenges and to see them recognised and rewarded for their efforts through these prestigious Awards,” said Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia. “The importance of embracing good design principles is now more important than ever as many businesses around the world have had to completely re-think their business strategies to remain competitive. The standard of design excellence represented in this year’s Awards is the best I’ve ever seen in my 25 years of running these Awards, an encouraging sign that the design sector is flourishing.”

With installation in under two hours, single-person field serviceability, DC meter data insights, and many customization options available, the RTM fast charger helps reduce setup, operation, and maintenance costs to increase our customers’ return on investment. The RTM also provides a fast charge and improves the refueling experience with driver-friendly features like intuitive screen flows and charger statistics, and Plug and Charge which enables EVs and chargers to communicate, authenticate, and transact via the charging cable, eliminating the need for a credit card reader, RFID card or QR Code. The award-winning RTM design is expected to be carried through Tritium’s upcoming products with the same thoughtfully designed enclosure and common components.
