Our Specialist for CCS Charging Communication

Easy Analysis of CCS Charging Communication

With VH5110 – also called "CCS Listener" - you can analyze the communication between a charging station (EVSE) and an e-vehicle (EV) based on CCS protocols. The VH5110 "listens" to the data communicated on the Control Pilot Line (CP) via Powerline Communication (PLC) and converts them into Ethernet packets that are interpreted in CANoe. In addition, the PWM parameters of the basic communication are measured and displayed in CANoe as system variables.


  • Very compact size for optimum use directly on the e-vehicle or the charging station
  • Easy handling without complex man-in-the-middle set-up
  • Neutral behavior, therefore no influence on communication
  • Seamless listening to the communication between the e-vehicle and the charging station
  • Flexible connection to the Control Pilot (CP) signal via:
    • direct connection
    • indirect connection by means of inductive coupler around the charging cable

Application Areas

Neutral, seamless listening of the CCS communication between e-vehicle and charging station:

  • in the vehicle for testing during ECU integration
  • in the field, when analyzing interoperability problems or interrupted charging
  • in the test vehicle for continuous recording of the charging processes in connection with a data logger
