Limitless charging station networking: The CHARX control modular mode-3 charging controllers are the centerpiece of intelligent, sustainable charging infrastructure. The devices are equipped with comprehensive features and interfaces in a compact, modular design. With the open Linux platform, the controllers are ready for IoT applications, smart services, and sector coupling – key factors for the All Electric Society. The scalable portfolio covers all charging applications and is supported with continuous software updates.

Your advantages

  • Full range of functions with a compact design taking up just 18.8 or 37.6 mm
  • Intelligent and communicative through support for all common protocols and interfaces
  • Quick and tool-free installation with pluggable Push-in front connections
  • Easy commissioning with Plug and Play and convenient configuration via web-based management
  • Flexible scaling and extension of charging parks with alignable controller modules
  • Realization of customer-specific software with an open Linux platform based on PLCnext

The charging controller for smart and sustainable charging infrastructure

The CHARX control modular charging controllers enable sector coupling between energy generators and grids, buildings, charging infrastructure, and electric vehicles for sustainable e-mobility  

CHARX control modular enables sector coupling for sustainable e-mobility

Coupling various sectors and stakeholders such as power grids, buildings, local generators, charging stations, and electric vehicles together is becoming ever more important for the future of e-mobility.

Communication is therefore the key factor for a sustainable and integrated e-mobility infrastructure that is based on renewable energies. This includes, for example, the integration of the e-vehicles into the smart grid or smart home, efficient and user-friendly business processes, and the device and patch management concept for charging park operators.

All these services require secure communication based on various protocols. The new CHARX control modular charging generation based on PLCnext Technology and the application expertise of Phoenix Contact ensure that you are perfectly prepared for these challenges.

The key features take up just 18.8 mm

The extremely narrow 1000-class of the CHARX control modular controller family features all necessary interfaces and can also be used as a stand-alone controller  

The narrow 1000-class features all necessary interfaces

The 1000-class controller, with a housing width of just 18.8 mm, provides you with all interfaces and functions necessary for a standards-compliant charging process:

  • Charging socket or charging cable
  • Contactor
  • RFID
  • Energy measurement
  • Residual current monitoring
  • Charging connector release in the event of mains failure
  • Freely configurable I/Os, for example for LED control

The 1000-class controller can therefore be used without difficulty as a stand-alone controller for single charging points. Or you can align it next to a 3000-class controller to extend this with up to 12 charging points.

Smart and communicative and takes up just 37.6 mm

The intelligent 3000-class of the CHARX control modular controller family brings together all functions and full connectivity and can manage up to 48 charging points  

The intelligent 3000-class brings together all functions and full connectivity

The 3000-class – with an overall width of just 37.6 mm – provides you with an intelligent controller with all functions and full connectivity:

  • Ethernet and 4G cellular communication
  • Dynamic charging and load management
  • Backend integration via Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP)
  • Vehicle-to-grid communication in accordance with ISO 15118
  • Open Linux platform for customer applications

With one 3000-class controller, you can manage up to 48 charging points and seamlessly integrate superordinate systems for billing and building management via Modbus/TCP or MQTT.
