Hello guys,

I would like to understand, what is the additional hardware requirements for Plug & Charge compared to EIM payment method during implementation?
Do you have any ideas?

Thank you

There is a standard - ISO 15118-2. I actually came here to see if anyone has got a copy of the full spec. From everything I have read, it supposedly read like a "design by committee" standard when compared to the Tesla charging out of band communications (which would explain why Tesla superchargers "just work" while chargers like EA are experiencing many issues including plug-and-charge failures and interoperability issues).

It doesn't explain anything.

EA's main problem is that they used the Windows OS and programming environment for their charging station computer 🤪

Tesla uses Linux

EA's problems have always been transactional in my experience.

CCS works once it works and is used by Superchargers in the EU.
