Charge 360- EV Charging For A Fleet Operator Made Easy
One of the most challenging aspects of electric vehicle ownership is tracking electricity consumption. This comes about from electric vehicles having the ability to plug in just about anywhere, from a domestic power point to a rapid DC charger.
The ability to replicate this experience is fundamental in providing fleet managers the ability to take those first steps to electrify their fleet. EVSE Australia aims to solve this problem with our Charge 360 solution powered by the Exploren OCPP platform, which for the first time, allows fleet managers the ability to track vehicles electricity consumption even when they go home. The solution is hardware agnostic meaning it works on any OCPP charger.
A major challenge facing EV uptake in Australia is the ability to charge multiple EV’s on existing electrical infrastructure. While it’s often easy to install the first unit how do we go about allowing for the deployments of chargers at scale? To facilitate the mass adoption of electric vehicles, we must continue to develop technologies that allow the optimisation of electrical loads. This facilitates the growth of electric fleets, and decreases the total cost of ownership to help accelerate the transition.
By unlocking EV’s from exclusively charging from depot or workplaces, you can also decrease the costs of your infrastructure deployment and significantly increase your charging capabilities and flexibility. This is particularly important given a large percentage of many fleets have vehicles that are taken home by employees, who will be charging using their own electricity and will need to be reimbursed accordingly.
At EVSE Australia, we’re always encouraging fleet managers to consider the value of electrifying their fleet. We’ve got market leading solutions to do exactly that and save you money in the meantime. As the definitive EV charging experts, we’ve outlined our next big step into the future of fleet charging below.
Charge 360- How it works
We’ve introduced a cost effective home charger called the Ocular IQ Wallbox. This charging station is fully equipped with smart networking features through OCPP1.6J compatibility. This means that we can now link your home based chargers together with your commercial chargers, such as the Ocular IQ Commercial Wallbox, into the one simple to use dashboard.
Installation is extremely easy and flexible around your location, with standard wall mounting or ground-mounted options available to suit your needs.
The smart capabilities of these chargers are unlocked by the Exploren OCPP network charge 360 package.
Users can download the Exploren app onto their smart device, giving them the ability to control the charging status and monitor energy usage directly through their device. The application also allows fleet managers to monitor and analyse charging data while providing other handy features like active load management and much more. The network can manage any OCPP based charging system on the market, so if you have existing smart chargers these can be brought together into your user dashboard.
A key difference the Exploren network provides is the innovative workplace and home charging link. Since most charging is done either at home or at work, Exploren can intelligently track charging data across locations for even easier fleet management.
Charge 360 was created by Exploren with simplicity and ease-of-access as a priority to ensure a premium user experience that outperforms any other platform in Australia.
The Ocular IQ Wallbox and Exploren network is a perfect fit for any fleet manager who desires unrivalled control in an easy-to-use platform. Please contact team to download the brochure
