It’s official! SmartCharge is one of four worldwide to be OCPP 1.6 Fully certified by the Open Charge Alliance.

SmartCharge OCPP 1.6 certified

The Open Charge Alliance (OCA), an international partnership of more than 180 companies active in the field of electric mobility, has an independent certification program of the industry standard called Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP).

– We are proud to be one of the first companies worldwide to be OCPP 1.6 certified. And even more so, being the only certified product in the Nordics, says Tom Orvei, CEO in Meshcrafts. The certification gives companies the confidence that there are proven solutions on the market that can accelerate EV adoption, while also raising the confidence level of EV drivers.

The goal for OCPP as an open industry standard, is to offer a uniform solution for the method of communication between Charging Station for EV’s and the Charging Station Management System (CSMS). With this protocol it is possible to connect any CSMS with any Charging Station, regardless of the vendor. A uniform standard prevents all kinds of coordination problems and is therefore an advantage for the whole electric vehicle market.
SmartCharge is a product fully based on adopting OCPP standardization now and in the future, to support global implementation and make charging smart, safe and simple anywhere in the world.

– With SmartCharge, we are committed to constant innovate and to expand with the support of OCA protocols, as we provide support for over 30 different charger types already. As a proud member of OCA, we look forward to what the future holds and continue to be our customers preferred choice for deployment of smart and sustainable EV charging infrastructure, finishes Tom Orvei.
