New charger controller for electric vehicle charging points

30.03.2011
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its range for system vendors offering electric vehicle charging points. The CM-230 charger controller from the Siplus ECC (Electrical Charging Components) range is the central component for standard-compliant design of electric vehicle charging posts.

The device enables mode 3 charging in accordance with IEC 61851-1 and is equipped with an Ethernet communication interface. This means the charger controller can communicate easily with a higher-level control system or the other components in a charging point such as a panel for entering user details or displaying the charging procedure. The charge current can be set within the range from 6 to 80 amps. The device is designed for a supply voltage of 24 V DC.


Charger controllers are the core components of electric vehicle charging points. They control the power arm of the charging post, monitor the charging cable, and communicate with the electric vehicle. The CM-100 and CM-230 charger controllers belong to the new Siemens Siplus ECC product family, which enables simple implementation of applications for charging electric vehicles. The Siemens Siplus ECC range also includes pre-installed, tested and ready-to-use function units for integration into electric vehicle charging solutions. With these, system vendors can implement a complete charging solution at low cost, and then expand it with their own individual metering and billing system, for example.

Im Focus: 'Nanochains' could increase battery capacity, cut charging time

How long the battery of your phone or computer lasts depends on how many lithium ions can be stored in the battery's negative electrode material. If the battery runs out of these ions, it can't generate an electrical current to run a device and ultimately fails.

Materials with a higher lithium ion storage capacity are either too heavy or the wrong shape to replace graphite, the electrode material currently used in...

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.
