Smart authentication solutions for charging stations Helping to shape the future of electromobility.

Challenges

Authentication solutions for a smart charging infrastructure

The market for electromobility is growing rapidly—and so is the need for powerful charging infrastructure. But as growth is accelerating, so too are the changes the industry is experiences. This poses major challenges for manufacturers and operators of charging infrastructure. Developers or owners of multi-tenant buildings want to equip private parking lots or underground parking spaces with e-charging columns to create added value. Companies, supermarkets or municipalities want to give their employees, customers or citizens the opportunity to charge their e-cars. They all depend on their charging stations continuing to function reliably in the face of changing technologies, regulations or customer demands—without expensive and time-consuming retrofitting. At the same time, they must ensure that only authorized drivers have access to the charging stations and that sensitive information such as user payment data does not fall into the wrong hands.

Secure and easily adaptable authentication solutions via radio frequency identification (RFID) or near field communication (NFC) or Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) can help overcome these challenges. Depending on the application, a card or smartphone is all that is needed to ensure reliable, secure and convenient authentication at all times. Companies can easily integrate the solution into existing employee ID cards, while credentials on the smartphone are usually the method of choice for public charging stations.

ELATEC offers you a customized solution for your individual requirements. And that with maximum flexibility and a consistently high safety standard. No matter what requirements you are faced with in the future: ELATEC's solutions can be adapted easily and cost-effectively at any time.
