With a maximum power of 19.2 kW at 80 amps per charging port, the kiosk delivers the fastest and most cost-effective level 2 charging experience for EV drivers. Building on IoTecha’s leading smart, connected, and interoperable charging technology, the kiosk enables services like Plug and Charge, smart charging, ISO/IEC 15118 based Plug and Charge, and smart energy management. Leveraging IoTecha’s IoT.ON Cloud and Edge services, customers can reduce the total cost of ownership of their EV charging infrastructure by remotely monitoring, configuring, and updating EV chargers, as well as optimizing energy flows through IoTecha’s topology-aware energy management services. One of the key differentiators of IoTecha’s technology is the ability to remotely troubleshoot and resolve ISO/IEC 15118 interoperability problems leading to a better charging experience. 

“This EV charging kiosk is a great example of a multi-stakeholder collaboration where industry leaders contributed their state-of-the-art technology to offer an EV charging solution with many types of customers, from businesses to end users, in mind.” said Oleg Logvinov, CEO of IoTecha. “The kiosk supports the latest technical requirements laid out by the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program by supporting ISO 15118, OCPP, and Plug and Charge. By meeting these standards, businesses deploying the new charging kiosk may qualify for NEVI funding to further offset deployment costs and users are provided an improved charging experience.”
