Universal Open Payment Solution for EV Charging Stations via OCPP

Why use OCPP?

OCPP (Open Charge Point Protocol) ensures interoperability and seamless communication within the electric vehicle charging ecosystem, allowing for seamless communication and integration. With OCPP, chargers can be remotely managed, updated, and monitored, enhancing operational efficiency and security. This standardization promotes scalability, flexibility, and innovation in the EV charging infrastructure. 


Pain Points and Solutions in the Integration of Payment with Charging Station

Charging stations are required to be certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory before being installed anywhere in the US. Any modification to a certified charging station that compromises the integrity of the unit may pose a hazard and necessitate re-certification. This occurs if a POS terminal is interfaced with the EV Charging controller board directly. In addition to the required labor, this process is time-consuming and costly.

Bezel 8, UIC Payworld’s contactless payment device, offers a solution to this problem. UIC Payworld’s Bezel 8 connects to a charging equipment through standard ethernet interface and communicates with charging stations using OCPP as a universal integration standard. It can be easily integrated into any charging system using OCPP without requiring any physical alterations to a charging station.

  1. Integrating open payments into the EV charging stations has always and continues to be a challenge in the industry. All of the different types of certifications and communications protocols required makes integration a very expensive and time consuming endeavor that usually takes over 1 year to complete. UIC’s Bezel 8S will reduce the integration time in half by being the first in the industry to offer integration with OCPP protocols and able to display charging (metered) information on the reader’s screen itself.
