central smart charging controller
A central smart charging controller is a more advanced smart charging communication logic. The smart charging commands are sent to each charging station via supported communication protocols and can be managed centrally in a backend system. This enables the flexibility to generate different smart charging groups in one system. No additional hardware installation is needed on the dedicated smart charging location but a good connection to control the charging infrastructure with smart charging commands and a backend system. The reaction times are typically slower compared to local solutions. That is why some providers combine central smart charging solutions with a local controller concerning the reaction times the safety requirements.
