How ChargePilot® interacts
ChargePilot® seamlessly integrates into your existing ecosystem, connecting with a large number of third-party systems through standardized interfaces. You can comfortably maintain your current programs and processes while flexibly adding new ones. ChargePilot® is the perfect choice for future-proof charging and energy management.
Interfaces at a glance
OCPP facilitates data transfers between the charging stations and ChargePilot®, enabling intelligent and secure control of charging sessions. Additionally, it ensures the transmission of billing data, such as the start and end times of charging sessions and the consumed energy volume.
If there is a comprehensive energy management system, ChargePilot® receives information via Modbus regarding the available charging power. This allows for dynamic adjustments in the energy supply to the vehicles. It also efficiently accounts for fluctuating energy generation from integrated PV systems.
When demand on the power grid is at its peak, often in the evenings and mornings, energy providers and grid operators send control signals to ChargePilot® via OpenADR. Charging power is then temporarily reduced to contribute to the stability of the electrical grid.
Through VDV 463, backend systems transmit charging requests to ChargePilot®, which then manages the charging processes accordingly and provides real-time information back to the system. This interface is particularly valuable for fleets with fixed schedules.
ChargePilot® offers complete flexibility when it comes to choosing suitable charging hardware. Charging stations from various manufacturers can be integrated as ChargePilot® itself is vendor-neutral. It even supports different combinations of manufacturers and types (e.g. AC and DC stations).
We welcome any charging station manufacturers interested in joining our list. Our requirements can be found here.
