Smart and intelligent operation of networked charging infrastructures

A charging station or a charging infrastructure is only as intelligent as its brain – the charge controller. The use of a smart charge controller is essential for the successful operation of a charging station.

How do you make your charging infrastructure even safer?

The 6 mA DC residual current detection according to IEC 62955 integrated in the CC613 charge controller detects DC residual currents in the controller and stops the charging process. The use of an RCD type B is not required, an RCD type A is sufficient. This makes individual charging points significantly more cost-effective.

Furthermore, DC residual current detection offers the great advantage of an automatic restart as soon as the fault is no longer present. This means that there is no need for a service technician to manually restart the charging station on site.

The weld check integrated in the CC613 outputs an error message in case of a "sticking" contactor or load switch. Since in this case the power supply is not interrupted and thus a life-threatening current can flow, the weld check provides increased personal protection.

To further increase the safety against electric shock, the CC613 ensures a proper connection of the protective conductor (PE) to the controller with continuous PE monitoring.

The integrated charging plug emergency opener offers the advantage that in the event of a power failure, the end user can safely disconnect the charging cable from the charging station without you having to be on site or the end user having to wait for a service technician.

When several charging stations are interconnected or in coordination with the Home Energy Management System (HEMS) and the Energy Management System (EMS), the integrated Dynamic Load Management (DLM) provides the maximum available power to the respective vehicle and avoids load unbalance.
The charging process is enabled by the backend system via Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP).
OCPP is a universal application protocol that enables standardised communication between the charging station and a central backend/management system.
Bidirectional communication with the ISO 15118 standard ensures a secure exchange of data between the vehicle and the charging station, thus enabling intelligent, automated control of the charging process.
Energy billing in kWh via the backend in compliance with measurement and calibration law (with the CC612).
Regular (e.g. quarterly) updates guarantee that the charging station always offers the latest functions and complies with current standards.
