To meet sustainability objectives and improve the public's mobility, municipalities have on-street charging posts to offer the best service to electric vehicle users. These solutions let them both increase the range of their vehicles during their leisure time, and fully recharge the battery, depending on the time available for charging.
Connectivity is another relevant aspect to consider, since high user volume makes it essential to prevent potential fraud. To achieve this, the Circutor solution offers devices with RFID authentication to let users recharge their vehicles, locking the hose while it is charging to keep third parties from disconnecting it, and unlocking it once the owner returns to the car park, thus avoiding any kind of fraud among users.
Through Ethernet communications, the device sends real-time information to the management and control software to report the status of each charger, monitor instantaneous values and interact remotely with the system elements, allowing for remote monitoring tasks.
The URBAN master/slave models save costs in any installation, as they are based on a master with integrated Ethernet or 4G communications. This avoids having to implement communications on each slave device, cutting costs and improving the operation with the charging point management software using the OCPP protocol.
