KEBA charging infrastructure – standardized communication via OCPP06 June 2014
With the newly implemented Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), KEBA’s wallbox KeContact P20 can be connected to a central system. This can be done either via the load management system KeContact M10 or with the communication hub KeContact C10.
Providers of such back-end systems are for example Bosch, NTT, smartlab or Atos, for which KEBA received the certification just recently.
The use cases that arise therefrom relate mainly to so-called "load management": which enables to control charging sessions depending on parameters (such as current network load, energy price, excess supply of volatile energy and similar).
In addition, these solutions allow the monitoring of the charging infrastructure, for example to actively promote a support hotline, or billing and roaming functionalities as well as many possibilities for authorization.
