Versinetic, has announced the general availability of a suite of charging solutions aimed at accelerating the rollout of smart charge points across the UK and Europe. Versinetic’s full suite of hardware and software solutions, called Charging Blox, have been designed to ease route to market for anybody looking to deliver their own charging systems.

Versinetic’s new suite of solutions comprises of a product and service modules, which allow manufacturers to build a custom EV charging solution to meet their own specifications:

  • MANTARAY Smart Charge Point Communications Controller for seamless control of charging stations, and management of all aspects of a charge point using Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) for maximum compatibility. MantaRay offers manufacturers versatility to manage AC and DC charge points with OCPP 1.6 or 2.0 and their own back-office solution. MantaRay can be integrated into the manufacturer’s existing system or a completely bespoke solution.
  • LINKRAY Passive Local Controller sits between the charge station management system and charge points allowing onsite local control of charge points without interfering with back-office control and billing. LINKRAY-passive relays messages between the charge station management system and the charge point, acting mostly as a transparent proxy.
  • EEL EV AC Charge Controller is an integrated printed circuit board (PCB) that works as the real-time interface for manufacturers’ charge points, delivering energy directly to an electric vehicle’s battery. A charging station can have multiple copies of Versinetic’s EVSE, depending on the intended volume of electric vehicles or size of their EV fleet. EEL specifically forms the part of the charging station that delivers energy to the electric vehicle. EEL can also be adapted for a number of functionalities, inclusive of: temperature (thermometer), accelerometer, IR movement detector, RFID reader (contactless payment), speaker, LEDs, LCD display screen, and lock pin control for charger connection.
  • Smart Charging Software and Software Licensing – Versinetic has developed and can provide several options, including Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP 2.0 & 1.6) software, along with an application solution to communicate with back-office cloud servers.

Launched in response to growing demand for electric vehicle charging project expertise, Versinetic provides custom, green technology for EV charging manufacturers.
