siemens IIA2011032522-01_072dpi.jpgThe CM-230 charger controller from the Siplus ECC (Electrical Charging Components) range is the central component for standard-compliant design of electric vehicle charging posts. The device enables mode 3 charging in accordance with IEC 61851-1 and is equipped with an Ethernet communication interface. This means the charger controller can communicate easily with a higher-level control system or the other components in a charging point such as a panel for entering user details or displaying the charging procedure. The charge current can be set within the range from 6 to 80 amps. The device is designed for a supply voltage of 24 V DC.

Charger controllers are the core components of electric vehicle charging points. They control the power arm of the charging post, monitor the charging cable, and communicate with the electric vehicle. The CM-100 and CM-230 charger controllers belong to the new Siemens Siplus ECC product family, which enables simple implementation of applications for charging electric vehicles. The Siemens Siplus ECC range also includes pre-installed, tested and ready-to-use function units for integration into electric vehicle charging solutions. With these, system vendors can implement a complete charging solution at low cost, and then expand it with their own individual metering and billing system, for example.
