Powered by IoTecha’s IoT.ON™ platform, the LIVA™ Charger offers electric vehicle owners and charger operators a seamless Plug and Charge and Smart Charging experience.

Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) and IoTecha Corp. are proud to announce the 80A version of the LIVA™ Smart AC Charger powered by IoTecha’s IoT.ON™ platform. The innovative LIVA™ charger is bundled with IoT.ON™ Services, enabling valuable features such as Plug and Charge, Smart Load Management, and Predictive Maintenance. IoTecha’s IoT.ON™ platform brings the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) to electric vehicle charging. Plug and Charge is one of the key features of Combined Charging System (CCS) with ISO/IEC 15118 communication.

“The LIVA™ charger, together with the IoT.ON™ platform, is the long-awaited answer for smart and efficient charging.” said Vincent Chen, COO of ECS. “With its built-in security, intelligent remote management and grid-integration features, this successful combination not only delivers unparalleled user experiences today, but also provides a ‘future-proof’ solution for our customers.”

“Not long ago, we announced our partnership with Hubject, which enables us to offer Plug and Charge on our IoT.ON™ Platform leveraging Hubject’s services,” said Oleg Logvinov, CEO of IoTecha. “The introduction of the LIVA™ Charger with IoT.ON™ services is the next major milestone in our journey of making the electric vehicle Charging experience secure, seamless, and easy with ISO/IEC 15118 Plug and Charge.”

The LIVA™ charger offers simplicity and is customizable with a simple change of the skin (external enclosure) and Human Machine Interface (HMI). It is available for branding and is designed to support a wide array of LAN and WAN options. The advanced feature set of IoTecha’s IoT.ON™, combined with the global manufacturing and customer service strength of ECS, make the LIVA™ AC Charger an ideal choice for both residential and commercial applications. Full IoT.ON™ capabilities include:

  • Plug and Charge
  • Remote firmware updates
  • Continuous monitoring with advanced analytics
  • Fleet charging and Multi-dwelling charging
  • Power flow management
  • Vehicle Grid Integration functions
  • V2G, which enables power transfer from the EV back to the premises and grid

The IoT.ON™ platform also enables intelligent grid integration services that can potentially generate additional income for LIVA™ charger owners and operators. For commercial applications, OCPP is supported to allow the LIVA™ charger to easily integrate with existing infrastructure.
