The Terra HP Charge Post Gen 2 will change from Active to Classic per 2022-01-01.In accordance with the ABB global policy, this product follows the ABB Life Cycle Management process. For details, please refer to Life Cycle Management or the summary below.


The Classic phase means that the products are no longer actively offered although they can still be delivered for some time, for example for expansion of existing systems or as spare units. Classic products will be withdrawn from the catalogues. Delivery time and price may increase due to lower production volume, higher component costs, lower stock levels, etc.During the Classic phase, the product’s End of Production will be announced with a lasttime-buy opportunity.Classic products will be supported with software updates: for the security of the product itself and its connection to the cloud; for interoperability with (new) electric cars; and bug fixes (if any). Potentially but not committed, Classic products may also get software feature enhancements as long as they are supported by the existing (control) hardware. In case the (control) hardware and software of Classic products is no longer able to support the latest security requirements, both for the product and its connection to the cloud, ABB will offer owners of chargers the opportunity to upgrade their chargers with new hardware and/or software. In case this is not possible due to technical reasons, or when the owner doesn’t want to (co)invest in new, secure hardware/software, the product will go into ‘Limited phase’. This will be announced in a separate message.The Classic phase will be valid until 2031-12-31 after which the products will enter in the Obsolete phase. In the Obsolete phase, replacement of products and spare parts will be possible only with new products/parts (if specified and available).
