E-Mobility: Your partner for 10 years in the field of charging technology

E-Mobility: Your partner for 10 years in the field of charging technology

March 3, 2021

E-Mobility at MCS: We have been a partner for charge controllers in the field of AC charging technology for almost 10 years. Now also with our own E-Smart.

For the final test phase of the digital charge controller DDCC according to EN15118, we built our own charging station and completed our test environment by purchasing a smart eq of the latest generation.

Our standard charge controller is the central control unit for 2 independent charging points in charging terminals and wall boxes. Hardware and software development of this plug-and-play solution comes from us.

The intelligent phase changeover switch APUM avoids grid overloads when charging e-vehicles and has been available on the market as a product since 2019. Here, too, we developed the hardware and firmware.
