Software stack supports ISO 15118 for EV chargers

Versinetic in Birmingham has developed a software stack that enables EV charging manufacturers to deliver charging infrastructure that complies with ISO 15118.

ISO 15118 is a protocol developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) that specifies communication methods and information that is exchanged between the vehicle and the charging station. EV charge points that meet ISO 15118 will allow EV drivers to seamlessly drive up to a station, plug and charge their vehicles.

The standard is set to play an important role in the future vision of mass electrification of highways across the globe. It aims to reduce the limitations of other charging protocols, especially the lack of information about the charging vehicle.  This can avoid the fragmentation from multiple apps, cards, or memberships to charge EVs using public charging posts. 

The ISO 15118 software stack is supplied as a licensed product as part of the consultancy’s modular EV charger and runs on Versinetic’s MantaRay control board. This is a smart charge point communications controller supporting both AC charge points and DC chargers using the latest communication standards. 

Versinetic’s Charging Blox product and service modules can be configured to precisely match customers’ requirements, and combine to create a complete EV charge point solution. These include the design concept, system design and supply options, whether licensed, buy direct or build under licence (for high volumes), or on a non-recurring engineering basis.

“Accommodating ISO 15118 in our products is another part of Versinetic’s roadmap to provide high quality products that play an integral part in the electrification of our roads. We strive to bring expertise and flexibility with our modular EV charging products that reduce time to market for EV charging providers and enable them to ensure their EV chargers are future- proofed,” said Dunstan Power,  Managing Director at Versinetic.
