Why are interoperability tests a key factor?

[et_pb_section][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text]

Charger-vehicle interoperability is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing which charging station to install in a home, business or other locations. In fact, ensuring a good end-user experience is a key factor, and making sure that charging will be optimal regardless of the vehicle model and charging conditions is fundamental to achieve this goal.

For this reason, Circontrol has already carried out tests with more than 70 models of up to 40 different electric vehicle manufacturers -cars, buses and trucks- in its laboratory of Barcelona or at the manufacturers’ own facilities. Circontrol’s entire range of smart charging solutions – from home charging to fast charging on motorways, including heavy vehicle charging – is subjected to these strict interoperability tests, guaranteeing full compatibility with almost all vehicle models on the market.

In addition, the conditions of use for each charger must also be taken into account when choosing it to ensure optimal operation. Thus, in the event of extreme cold or heat, the range of vehicles may vary -as explained in this article-, and the efficiency of the charge may be compromised. For this reason, during the development phase of each device, Circontrol test them in its climatic chamber where extreme cold, heat and humidity conditions are reproduced in order to guarantee perfect operation in the least favourable conditions.

All these tests guarantee an optimal experience for drivers, regardless of the vehicle of each user and the specific charging conditions in which it takes place. This experience is also reflected in the design of all our solutions, which are designed to be as practical, simple and robust as possible, adapting to the demands of the environment and contributing to comfortable, simple and efficient loading.

Introducing EV Charging at Petrol Stations

Petrol stations are a common stop for cars and other road vehicles. The rise of electric vehicles may not change this. However, during the transition, petrol pumps and EV chargers may coexist at these locations, as they gradually transform into charging hubs. Moreover, European governments have started to legislate to facilitate this transition. At the […]
