Intelligent networking for charging infrastructure

New system can be scaled “to suit almost any application”

With Charx control modular, Phoenix Contact is bringing a new generation of e-mobility charging controllers to the market. The open Linux-based platform is the basis of an intelligent and sustainable charging infrastructure.

The modular architecture of the controllers allows the system to be scaled to suit almost any application, from a single home charging station to a networked charging park. Even later extensions can be added in this manner.

The Plug and Play charging controllers provide comprehensive features and communication interfaces in a compact housing and can be configured intuitively via web-based management.

Transition to All Electric Society

Sector coupling is becoming increasingly important for the future of e-mobility and for the transition to the All Electric Society, based on CO2-neutral energy. Communication between providers, grids, buildings, charging points and vehicles is the key factor for sustainable e-mobility, based on renewable energy.

This includes the integration of electric vehicles into the smart grid or smart home, efficient and user-friendly business processes, and device and patch management for charging park operators.

Secure communication

“All these IoT applications and smart services require secure communication based on various protocols,” says Phoenix Contact. “With the new controller generation of Charx control modular and its open Linux platform, manufacturers and operators of charging infrastructure are equipped to meet these requirements.”
