ZigBee certified EV charging
ChargeIQ is a home charging system for plug-in electric vehicles that provides benefits for the consumer and the electricity industry. ChargeIQ is the only ZigBee certified electric vehicle charging system that seamlessly integrates the driver, vehicle and the grid.
ChargeIQ is the world’s first Smart Grid certified EV charging system, and in 2012 was used to deliver a world-leading demand management project using Victoria’s Smart Grid.
ChargeIQ’s integration with Smart Meters means that it can automatically determine the most cost effective time to charge the user’s vehicle; ChargeIQ also allows the driver to monitor and manage the charging remotely via the internet, their smartphone or through email/SMS – drivers can simply set their charging preferences and let ChargeIQ take care of the rest.
Utilities and energy service providers can manage charging loads through the ChargeIQ solution which promotes driver acceptance of direct load control; the ChargeIQ network management platform is also able to be tailored to client needs.
ChargeIQ was originally developed by Percepscion’s parent organisation DiUS Computing, and successfully deployed as part of the Victorian Government Electric Vehicle Trial. To find our more, download ChargeIQ brochure here.
