SIMCom LTE Cat.1 Module A7600X Enables Charging Piles Smarter

2021-11-02 18:25:27

Climate change is a global problem faced by mankind. Soaring carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in various countries threaten the biosystem. In this context, various countries around the world try to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by signing global conventions. Transportation accounts for about 10% of carbon emissions, ranking third among all industries. Carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides and other harmful particles in the exhaust gas of traditional vehicles have a very adverse effect on the atmosphere, leading to the greenhouse effect, haze, and other phenomena. In the process of realizing carbon neutrality, carbon emission reduction in transportation is imperative.


As a crucial facility for electric vehicles, charging piles are regarded as a trillion-scale blue ocean market by the industry. However, with the large-scale construction of charging piles, some problems are gradually exposed. In terms of safety, high-voltage charging units, unreliable grounding, unreliable charging plug lockers, poor waterproof, rust-proof, and sealing performance and other problems may cause fires, electric shocks, and other hazards. In terms of operation and maintenance, due to the scattered distribution of charging piles, high operation and maintenance pressure and high cost, problems usually remain undiscovered until they occur. How to manage a large number of distant charging piles in a unified way and timely discover and remove hidden dangers has become a challenge for charging pile manufacturers on the road of development.


As a well-known module manufacturer, with its 19 years of experience in 5G, 4G, LPWA, LTE-A, intelligent modules, 3G, 2G wireless cellular communications, GNSS and other technology platforms and modules, SIMCom has created the LTE Cat.1 module A7600X to help charging pile manufacturers realize unified, automated, and intelligent management of charging piles, enable intelligent monitoring of charging piles, and protect the life and property safety of every car owner.


A7600E is Multi-Band LTE-FDD/LTE-TDD/GSM/ GPRS/EDGE module solution in a SMT type which supports LTE CAT1 up to 10Mbps  data transfer. It has strong extension capability with rich interfaces including UART, USB2.0, GPIO etc. The module provides much flexibility and ease of integration for customer's application.   The package of  A7600E is LCC+LGA. The package (LCC part) of A7600E is compatible with SIM7600 Series. AT commands of A7600E are  mostly compatible with SIM7600 Series modules. This also minimize the investments of customers, and enables a short time-to-market.


By A7600X, the state of charging piles can be monitored in real time. For example, leakages and trips can be reported to the platform for processing right away. In this way, monitoring + protection can eliminate potential safety hazards. In an emergency, power supply for charging piles can be cut off instantly with one button, protecting life and property safety.



SIMCom LTE CAT.1 module A7600X on charging piles not only facilitates the unified management, operation, and maintenance of charging piles for manufacturers, but also benefits smart car users and operators, forming a win-win-win situation.


Through the mobile app, car owners can recharge and check their payment records, check available charging piles and services nearby, search suitable charging facilities nearby, enjoy an efficient allocation mechanism and convenient charging without queuing, and check the automatic LED charging countdown display by scanning the code. Power is cut off automatically when the charging time is up, avoiding power waste and eliminating the risk of overcurrent.


A7600X can be used  for data transmission, charging pile operators can realize remote monitoring of charging equipment through a comprehensive management platform, to ensure the normal operation of charging business, which greatly improves the convenience for users and the efficiency of charging piles. At the same time, the real-time management of station piles can be realized, the charging time can be adjusted, and different rates can be set to flexibly adapt to peak and valley prices and enhance profitability.


Connecting technology, information, finance, business, management, and other elements with the platform of intelligent charging piles will greatly optimize the mode of transportation and enable the green transportation ecosystem.
