Type 1 charging cable


Electric vehicle charging cable in accordance with SAE for countries with the single-phase power grid, such as Norway.


 

Type 2 charging cable


Electric vehicle charging cable in accordance with IECIEC 62196-2 for countries with the 3-phase power grid, such as Germany.


 

OCPP


(Open charge point protocol) Standardised communication interface between the charging point and the back end.


 

RFID


(Radio Frequency Identification Device) Access control using a touch-free transponder card.


 

EVCC


(Electric Vehicle Charge Controller) communicates with the vehicle according to IEC 61851-1 Mode 3 and controls the flow of electricity to the vehicle.


Internal temperature control


The temperature of the control circuit of each outlet is measured constantly . If it exceeds approx. 60°C, the charging is limited to 6A; at 80°C, charging is switched off completely until control circuit has cooled to 60°C again.


 

SBC


(Single Board Computer) controls the components of the charge point, enables billing, remote control and monitoring by communicating with the backend via OCPP, provides load management and other functions.
