Vector Informatik is expanding its product portfolio in the field of e-mobility charging infrastructure with the vCharM.edge hardware. Operators of charging parks can use it to implement dynamic load management. This avoids expensive grid expansions and still guarantees full charging without expensive peak loads for all vehicles.

vCharM.edge is a hardware that is installed locally in the charging park. Here, it connects to the charging and load management tool vCharM from Vector, which runs in the cloud. At the same time, vCharM.edge communicates with the local charging stations via OCPP and receives the building’s energy consumption via an energy meter. Based on these values, the remaining available energy is continuously provided to the charging infrastructure. For the end customer, this means more efficient and cost-effective charging processes compared to static load management. Settings and reports are still easily made and viewed via the cloud in vCharM.

Another advantage of running charging and load management locally is offline authorization. Even if the internet connection to vCharM fails, the electric vehicles are charged at the charging stations as the most important parameters are stored in vCharM.edge. Authentication takes place as usual via RFID cards, key codes or Autocharge.

“With vCharM.edge, we are offering our customers an intelligent solution for dynamic load management that is both technically and economically impressive. vCharM.edge is another milestone in our strategy to drive forward and simplify electromobility,” says Christian Witt, Product Manager for Charging and Load Management Systems at Vector.
