We’ve linked up with comemso to help you master the complexity of EV charging. V2G Clarity’s compliance Testing-as-a-Service for OCPP 2.0.1 is being offered alongside comemso’s testing and simulation suite (including EV simulation and grid emulator) for 15118 compliance tests to help you make your EV Chargers future-proof. Our tools will help end the interoperability issues that arise from malfunctioning communication protocol implementation. V2G Clarity’s solution is a cloud-based OCPP 2.0.1 compliance testing tool for both charging station (CS) and charging station management system (CSMS) vendors and it will increase interoperability across the e-mobility market. This is a win-win for all CS and CSMS vendors and, ultimately, the end-user, who will receive a seamless charging experience.

Have a look at this webinar for more details on OCPP 2.0.1 and hop over to our knowledgebase for more information on ISO 15118.

In September 2020, I presented our OCPP 2.0.1 Compliance Testing-as-a-Service solution at Hubject's E-Mobility Start-Up Award during the InterCharge Network Conference (ICNC 20) in Berlin. Here is the video from the live presentation on stage, followed by a Q&A session with the jury.

OCA
DEF:

OCA

The Open Charge Alliance is the official body that specifies OCPP 2.0.1 and defines a set of certification profiles. Each profile tests a certain set of functionalities. Depending on the functionality of your charger or CSMS, you might want to certify for either a subset or all of these profiles.

EXI
DEF:

EXI

Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) is a very compact representation of XML. All ISO 15118 messages are defined in XML. EXI improves serialisation and parsing speed on embedded devices (like an EV and a charging station controller) and allows more efficient use of memory and battery life, compared to standard (textual) XML.

MQTT
DEF:

MQTT

The Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is a lightweight, publish-subscribe network protocol that transports messages between devices.

CSMS
DEF:

CSMS

A Charging Station Management System (CSMS) helps you monitor, maintain, and control your charger network.

ACD-P
DEF:

ACD-P

Automated Connection Device (ACD), a conductive charging concept that doesn't require a person to plug in the charging cable. A first implementation is ACD-P, where 'P' stands for 'pantograph' charging of buses.

PLC
DEF:

PLC

Power line communication, a communication technology that enables sending data over existing power cables.

SLAC
DEF:

SLAC

Signal Level Attenuation Characterisation (SLAC) is based on power line communication (specifically HomePlug Green PHY) and is a protocol to establish the data link between the EV and the charging station via the charging cable.

CPO
DEF:

CPO

Charge Point Operator, the entity monitoring and managing an EV charger network.
