SmartCharge is a vendor-independent management system for EV charging that provides a comprehensive overview of your charging infrastructure, with predictability and full control of each charging station. The solution is scalable and has unlimited capacity.
The system includes both SmartCharge U and SmartCharge Control.
End-users pay only for their own use, so that the system is fair for those who do not have EVs. Charging is started with a key, app or RFID-token.
SmartCharge makes it possible to balance and adapt to available capacity between each charge point. This simplifies and reduces costs on installations and operations, the EV chargers are controlled by SmartCharge without need for manual administration.
SmartCharge – just charge.
SmartCharge Control simplifies daily operations of EV charging stations.
View your customers by user group and price category as needed. Users pay only for their own usage, and aggregate invoices can also be generated for companies or owners of EV fleets. You can set the price per KWh, time, idle fee, per use or a combination of these.
SmartCharge optimizes available capacity in the charging station, resulting in lower energy costs and overall increased utilization of capacity. In other words: More cars can charge at the same time, without any physical upgrades of the electrical system.
Control the charger's power output by adjusting charging times and distributing available capacity between the chargers.
The system enables dynamic control of the charging station, always in sync with available energy capacity.
Limited charging station capacity? - Distribute the energy
SmartCharge can distribute the charging station’s available capacity according to the users’ willingness to pay and energy needs. It also can balance the load of all the users of the charging station, generating more savings for the charging station.
Energy management with SmartCharge reduces the need to upgrade a building's energy capacity. It allows you to cut the costs of installation, operation and future expansion.
With SmartCharge, each charger can be individually adjusted to deliver power according to capacity (continuously 0-32A). Chargers using the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) are commonly equipped with built-in power meters. SmartCharge can retrieve data from the power meter in the main board for each system if needed.
An energy management controller communicates with the smart charging stations and provides the following benefits:
