vSECC: Communication Controller for Charging Stations

vSECC (Supply Equipment Communication Controller) is a communication controller for charging stations. It serves as a communication interface between the electric vehicle, the Charging Station Management System (CSMS) and the power electronics.

Advantages

  • All communication functions for charging stations in a single device

  • Universal controller for present and future electric vehicle charging use cases

  • High performance multi-core processor to cover future requirements

  • Compact industrial hat-top design packaging for easy integration into a switching cabinet

  • High flexibility and cost optimization for serial production

  • Specified for industrial outdoor conditions

  • Reduced complexity in design and integration

Application Areas

The vSECC supports electric vehicle charging communication over CCS (Combined Charging System), CHAdeMO (Japanese Charging Consortium), GB/T (Chinese Charging Standard) and controls the power electronics that provide AC or DC for charging. The typical use cases are public EV charge points, charge points in fleet depots, companies, residential facilities and charge points for opportunity charging (e.g. wireless charging, pantographs with external WiFi module).

Main Features

  • Compliant with common electric vehicle charging standards
  • Supports OCPP 2.0 (Errata and in future 2.0.1) for the backend communication via Ethernet
  • Managing two charge points in parallel
  • 24 V industrial power supply
  • SIL 2 capable in control pilot and proximity pin supervision
