Control Interface Enhances Popular Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

ClipperCreek now offers an expansion card for their HCS product line of charging stations. COSMOS is an option for the Level 2, 240V HCS Series. Designed for developers, system operators, and system integrators, it features a simple digital load management interface, as well as UART Serial Communication interface for more advanced connection to third party monitoring and control systems. The UART Serial Communications protocol document is available to any interested developer by contacting the company for details.

 

Available UART Serial commands include:

  • Set EVSE Pilot (available power) level – 5 levels
  • Monitor vehicle connected status
  • Monitor EVSE active/inactive status
  • View advanced EVSE diagnostics information
  • System defaults to hardwired digital load management if serial communication lost 

Digital Load Management Interface features:

  • Four levels of output power control
  • Optically-coupled Open Collector output – pulled low when EVSE makes power available for charging 

COSMOS can be added to any HCS Series charging station for $184. More information is available at https://www.clippercreek.com/cosmos/
