Electric vehicles continue to see record-breaking year-over-year sales growth, accelerating the environmental protection initiatives globally and locally incentivize the migration to green alternatives and leads to the increasing of charging station.
The outdoor EV charging systems have to sustain and perform at the highest level in harsh and critical environments, be able to connect diverse peripherals like sensors, card reader, cameras, HMI, and support high luminance data displaying and communicate real time data to management center. Hence, complying with Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) and supporting wide temperature operation, compact size, robust and variety of I/O ports connection will be the key elements for building the application. Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is an application protocol for communication between charging stations and central management in a charging station network. This protocol opens the charging network, decreases the barriers to entry within the market, and spurs competition and innovation while increasing the service quality and lowering the price for consumers.
