Telit Wireless Solutions, Inc., the US-based mobile technology arm of Telit Communications, will provide its CC864-DUAL and GC864-QUAD V2 M2M cellular communications modules for SemaConnect’s ChargePro Level 2 charger (30A maximum, 7.7kW@240VAC) for electric vehicles.
Specifically designed for commercial-grade applications, ChargePro is a compact charging unit that is installed and integrated into existing facilities at multifamily, office, retail, fleet and municipal parking environments. This intelligent, network-based EV charging system features smart card authentication, energy metering, an automatic payment system, and web-based network management. The ChargePro technology platform is also smart grid-ready, capable of easily tying into power utility programs such as time-of-use pricing and demand response.
Leveraging both the CC864-DUAL and GC864-QUAD V2 Telit modules, compatible with CDMA and GSM/GPRS networks, respectively, ChargePro stations are equipped to both send and receive charging system data. Users can receive real-time e-mails and text messages regarding the charging status of their vehicle, enhancing consumer experience. Additionally, ChargePro can communicate with back-office management systems via cellular connections, allowing station owners to supervise and control their network remotely.
The CC864-DUAL, a CDMA-1xRTT 3G module, features the same form factor, function and AT command interface as its GSM/GPRS counterpart, the GC864. This unique family form factor concept enables integrators and OEMs to swap Telit modules without costly redesigns and take advantage of the global coverage afforded by leveraging GSM/GPRS and CDMA-1xRTT network technologies for the same application.
The CC864-DUAL incorporates gpsOne and standalone GPS capability for applications in mobile environments such as telematics, personal and asset tracking. With an ultra-compact design and extended temperature range, the Telit GC864-QUAD V2 is suited for medium-volume m2m applications and mobile data devices, the company said. Both modules boast a range of functions for over-the-air maintenance and management of software.
