Intelligent communication for charging stations

We're seeing an increasing number of vehicles driving on our roads that are powered by electricity. These vehicles require a comprehensive and efficient charging infrastructure. Smart data transfer between the vehicle and charging station is an absolute must if we want to ensure that vehicles can be charged quickly and hassle-free. This is the only way to communicate charging states and customise charging speeds so that they match the battery equipment of the specific vehicle. This makes vehicle-to-grid communication especially important for high-speed charging with direct current as well as for combined charging systems (CCS).


devolo offers a comprehensive communication solution


Additional services and billing models can be implemented using vehicle-to-grid communication. The Green PHY modules enable devolo to provide an innovative connection, which has now become a global standard in charging station communication. The data connection for this is established via Powerline with the charging connection between station and electric vehicle. This principle enables reliable authentication and comprehensive communication for the charging process. At the same time, billing models and even new services can be integrated.

Green PHY Module sketch showing the application and function

By offering devolo dLAN Green PHY products, we are providing a preconfigured module based on QCA7000 chipsets that is very versatile in how it can be used. Its hardware interfaces and extensive software development kit allow the devolo solution to be integrated into a wide variety of software environments with minimal development effort.


The module can even be used outside of e-mobility. It can be used as a Powerline solution in smart devices in order to connect them to the Internet of Things extremely quickly and efficiently.
