Project Description

Smart and Connected EV Charger

New pricing models such as tiered and time-of-use complicate determination of electricity costs.  Our smart EV charger integrates cost and real-time consumption information to flexibly adapt to the needs of end users, utilities and service providers. When working in clusters, our SmartElek can implement autonomous load balancing to share available power without external controllers.

This solution allows control, scheduling, and measurement of the energy consumption and cost of charging sessions, and is ideally suited for managing multi-vehicle charging including residential, multi-dwelling and workplace.

How it Works

Our SmartElek EVSE is a smart, 30A Level 1 / Level 2 EV charger capable of wireless monitoring and control of the vehicle charging session, from plugin, authorization, and charging start, through plugout or end of charge. Dual radios allow connection to either a local hub, or directly to a cloud while enabling multiple chargers to autonomously manage the available energy at a given location.  The supplied mobile and desktop/webapp applications provide the functionality needed to commission, monitor and control all of the EVSE functionality and to display historical energy consumption and cost.

A charging session is started based on either schedules set by the user or automation rules that can take into account the cost of energy at a given time.  The flexible connectivity also enable the opportunity to participate in electricity provider incentive programs. The maximum allowed current for a session can also be programmed to simultaneously charge multiple vehicles with a limited service circuit. Even waking up to an uncharged vehicle can be avoided by enabling a notification when a charge is scheduled but the vehicle was not plugged in.

With its advanced connectivity, indoor/outdoor suitability, safety certification and value, the SmartElek EVSE is ready to excel in residential or commercial installations.  Purchase from the product page or contact us for more details.
