Our AC charging controllers control and monitor the mode 3 charging of electric vehicles in accordance with IEC 61851-1. The controllers can be configured via a browser or DIP switches and have RS-485 and Ethernet interfaces for communication with energy meters and energy management systems. Optional functions include a 3G modem, RFID user authorization, DC residual current monitoring, and automatic charging connector release in the event of power failure.

Your advantages

  • Standard-compliant AC charging in accordance with IEC 61851-1, SAE J1772, and GB/T 20234
  • High flexibility with extensive configuration options
  • Easy implementation of intelligent charging infrastructures with charging management
  • Easy integration into management systems, thanks to standardized communication interfaces
  • Developed and produced in accordance with the IATF 16949 automotive standard and ISO 9001

From a single charging point through to networked charging infrastructure

Phoenix Contact charging controllers are operated both autonomously and in networks. Status data is acquired via the integrated communication interfaces, and controlled intervention in the charging process is supported. Here, we focus on the use of standardized communication interfaces and protocols, therefore providing easy connection options to a variety of automation systems.

EV Charge Control Basic for private applications
