The UK’s network of Elektrobay road-side charging stations is now able to ‘talk’ to electric cars that are being recharged. Elektromotive, the makers of Elektrobay, is the world’s first alternative fuel supply company to integrate the latest Power Line Communication technology, into its road-side charging stations.
This PLC integration allows the Elektrobay to ‘talk’ with a recharging vehicle by sending and receiving digital signals via the power cable, without the need for additional wires. The resulting ‘conversation’ can exchange data and discuss billing, power requirement identification, transaction security and safety.
