SIMCom Smart Module SIM8500 Empowers Charging Piles and Makes New Energy Vehicle Charging Safer

2021-05-31 16:37:13

The rapid development of new energy electric vehicles also drives the development of intelligent charging piles. New energy vehicle charging piles integrate charging piles with communication, cloud computing, smart grid, Internet of Vehicles and other technologies, so that people, vehicles and charging piles can communicate. Data connectivity requires a module to transmit data. The built-in intelligent module SIM8500 of SIMCom can transmit data between intelligent charging piles, people and vehicles, achieving fast communication.



Q: What are the benefits to users?

Car owners can recharge, view payment records and check available charging piles and services around them through a mobile APP.

Quickly find nearby charging facilities


Efficient allocation mechanism, no need to queue

Convenient charging method, scan the code to charge

LED digitron countdown screen, automatic power off when time is up

Real-time transmission of charging data, easy to see


Q: What are the improvements for operators?

Charging pile operators can monitor charging equipment remotely on a cellphone to ensure the normal operation of charging business, which greatly improves user convenience and the usage of charging piles.


Real-time monitoring

Charging pile management

Troubleshooting

The length of each charge can be adjusted, and different rates can be set. It’s flexible and can increase profits.


Under the provisions of national standards, electric vehicle charging piles should be equipped with over-voltage and under-voltage protection, lightning protection, output short-circuit protection, leakage protection, over-current protection and other protection devices. The SIMCom module monitors the status of a charging pile in real time through wireless communication. For example, leakage tripping information will be sent to the platform right away for processing. In this way, Monitoring+ Protection completely put an end to safety risks. In case of emergency, press the button, power will be taken off of the pile instantly, to protect personal and property safety.
