SMA EV Charger Business

Charging infrastructure for e-mobility in the commercial sector

With the new SMA EV Charger Business, a commercial charging infrastructure for single point charging stations or parks with several charging points can be quickly and easily implemented. Each charger features two convenient charging points for electric vehicles including charging cable and type-2 plugs or charging sockets. As part of SMA Energy System Business, SMA EV Charger Business is a fully integrated e-mobility solution that also enables refueling with solar power and can be expanded with SMA’s commercial storage system anytime. Thanks to RFID and OCPP interface, the charger can be flexibly integrated into various charging backends and billing systems. Thanks to the flexible concept, SMA EV Charger Business can either be mounted on the wall or installed as a free-standing charging station.

FAQ

When will the SMA EV Charger Business be available?

The SMA EV Charger Business is available immediately.


What is the price?

For prices of the SMA EV Charger Business, please contact your trade partner or your installer.


Apart from the charger itself, what is part of the offer?

The SMA EV Charger Business is part of our SMA Commercial eMobility Solution, which includes the charger itself, the new SMA eMoblility Portal, various services and extensive accessories.


How many charging points does the unit have?

The device has two charging points with a maximum charging power of 22 kW each. Two SMA EV Charger Business can be installed on one pole. Thus, up to four charging points can be realized with one installation and in one work step.


In which countries is the EV Charger Business available?

The SMA EV Charger Business will initially be offered in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Other European countries will follow in 2023.


What functionalities does the system offer from the start of sales?

The Charger itself offers a variety of functions such as integrated dynamic charging load management, authentication via RFID, an OCPP interface for integration into the SMA eMobility Portal, remote updates and an MID- compliant meter. From Q2/2023, there will also be a version of the SMA EV Charger Business that complies with calibration regulations.


What other functionalities are planned?

For the first half of 2023, a version of the SMA EV Charger Business that complies with calibration regulations and the option of billing charging processes are planned. For the second half of 2023, the functions PV-optimized charging and integration into SMA Energy Management are planned.


Can the EV Charger Business do bidirectional charging?

No, the EV Charger Business does not support bidirectional charging. For intermediate storage of surplus PV energy, SMA offers a storage solution as part of the SMA Commercial Energy Solutions, which was developed and optimized for commercial applications with its scalable storage capacity and its high charging and discharging performance. This storage solution optimally supports you in increasing your own consumption and/or avoiding peak loads.


How many years of warranty does the new SMA EV Charger have?

The SMA EV Charger Business comes with a two-year warranty. This warranty can be extended by five years to a total of seven years at a charge.


What protective devices does the Charger have?

The SMA EV Charger Business has a 6mA DC residual current monitor and an integrated RCDB type residual current circuit breaker.


What are the planned delivery times?

The SMA EV Charger Business is manufactured in Germany, which is why we have short delivery routes and therefore short delivery times.


Is a special certificate or training required for commissioning the SMA EV Charger, such as with the SMA Storage Business?

No.


What are the costs for the SMA eMobility Portal?

Within the first five years, there are no further costs for using the SMA eMobility Portal.


How long is the customer bound to the SMA eMobility Portal?

There is no obligation to use the SMA eMobility Portal. The operation of the SMA EV Charger Business with another backend is possible in principle, but not recommended. On the one hand, the backend is available to you for the first 5 years at no additional cost, and on the other hand, we only offer our remote service for Chargers that are registered and online in the SMA eMobility Portal.


What additional components are needed for dynamic load management?

In principle, dynamic charging load management also works without additional energy and power measurement. You only need this if the dynamic charging load management is also to consider self-consumption and/or generation from PV. Our recommendation is the Janitza UMG 604 Pro, as this is compatible with our commercial storage solution. Alternatively, you can also use the Siemens 7KM2200.


Is it possible to operate the SMA EV Charger Business without the SMA eMobility Portal?

Operation without a backend is possible in principle, but not recommended. On the one hand, the backend is available to you for the first five years at no additional cost, and on the other hand, we only offer our remote service for Chargers that are registered and online in the SMA eMobility Portal.


Is it possible to convert/retrofit a MID- compliant charger to a legal metrology- compliant charger?

No, it is not possible to convert chargers with an MID- compliant energy meter to a charger that complies with calibration law, as not only the energy meter must be replaced or converted in order to meet the requirements of calibration law.


Is an additional energy meter required for dynamic load management?

In principle, dynamic charging load management also works without additional energy and power measurement. You only need this if the dynamic charging load management is also to take into account self-consumption and/or generation from PV.


How many RFID cards are included in the scope of delivery of the SMA EV Charger Business?

2, further cards can be ordered later. In addition, you can also use existing RFID cards. The SMA EV Charger Business supports all Mifare variants currently available on the market. We recommend the use of cards from the Mifare DESFire series, such as the EV1 or EV3.


What are the costs for operating the SMA eMobility Portal?

Within the first five years, there are no further costs for using the SMA eMobility Portal.


Is there a WLAN and or LTE modem in the box?

The custody transfer compliant version of the SMA EV Charger Business will also be available with a mobile modem. The calibration compliant SMA EV Charger Business will be available from the beginning of Q2 2023.


Is integration into other CPO backends possible?

In principle, it is possible to operate the SMA EV Charger Business with another backend. However, we only offer our remote service for Chargers that are registered and online in the SMA eMobility Portal.


Does the entire SMA EV Charger Business have to comply with calibration regulations or only the meter in the charger?

The calibration law and thus also the compliance with calibration law always refers to the entire device and not only to the energy meter. The SMA EV Charger Business as a whole device is developed, manufactured and calibrated in compliance with calibration law.


Which RFID charging cards does the SMA EV Charger Business support?

The SMA EV Chharger Business supports all Mifare variants currently available on the market. We recommend using cards from the Mifare DESFire series, such as the EV1 or EV3.


How many SMA EV Charger Business can be controlled together via the integrated dynamic charging load management?

The dynamic load management of the SMA EV Charger Business supports up to 250 charging points and thus 125 SMA EV Charger Business.


Can charging cables be exchanged (as spare parts)?

The charging cable will also be available as a replacement part in the future. Please note that you are entitled to a replacement unit within the warranty period.
