Applus+IDIADA selects IoTecha’s PilotSharkTM Protocol Analyzer for testing and debugging of ISO/IEC 15118

IoTecha Corp., a provider of advanced Smart Charging and connectivity solutions for the Electric Vehicle charging industry, and Applus+IDIADA (“IDIADA”), a multinational company providing design, engineering, testing and homologation services to the automotive industry, are proud to announce their collaboration on an ISO/IEC 15118 testing program. ISO/IEC 15118 is the core communication protocol used in the Combined Charging System (CCS).

“We selected IoTecha’s PilotShark™ because of its innovative approach of passive and non-intrusive capture and analysis of EV-EVSE communication with no ‘man-in-the-middle’, which considerably improves the accuracy and reliability of the measurements without causing the measurement to change the system operation”, said Klaus Kersting, EV/HEV Senior Manager of IDIADA. PilotSharkTM also features low-level analysis of HomePlug GreenPHY frames to trace physical-layer level modem-modem communication and acknowledgements, and per-frame, per-carrier signal power measurements.

CEO of IoTecha, Mr. Oleg Logvinov, stated, “We are proud to work with the team at IDIADA, who bring their vast experience in automobile testing and design to this important global interoperability testing effort. We introduced the unique PilotSharkTM product with the same goals that drive IoTecha’s entire portfolio – to enable manufacturers and operators of charging stations to reduce development cost, accelerate time to market, and lower the overall cost of ownership of AC and DC chargers.”

IoTecha products bring important advantages to charging station manufacturers, operators, and owners, including the support of key standards such as ISO/IEC 15118 and OCPP 1.6J. IoTecha’s Combined Charging System on Module (CCSoM) is a software and hardware platform that shortens time to market, reduces costs and enables the development of a wide range of EV Chargers (EVSE) for private and public use. IoTecha’s IoT.ONTM integrated Cloud platform further reduces cost of ownership of charging stations via proactive monitoring and grid integration capabilities.
