Public Fast Charging in Germany and Austria: EVBox Troniq Modular Receives Certificate for Compliance with Calibration Law
EVBox has fulfilled the high data security requirements of the German calibration law, Eichrecht, for their DC charging station, EVBox Troniq Modular, guaranteeing a transparent measurement and billing process for the end user. The charging station is now ready for use in semi-public and public areas across Germany and Austria.
AMSTERDAM, January 12, 2023 — EVBox, a leading European manufacturer for charging solutions, already reported successfully completing the first certification phase of compliance with the German measurement and calibration law, also known as Eichrecht Module B. Now, EVBox confirms that their DC charging station, EVBox Troniq Modular, as well as their production facilities in Bordeaux, France have fully passed the last step of the certification, Eichrecht Module D, confirmed by CSA Group Bavaria.
With the growing demand for fast EV charging infrastructure, the Measurement Instruments Directive (MID) and different European Union member states are establishing laws on calibrated metering. Calibration is significant in energy because it gives an indication of measurement Different countries in the EU have implemented their own additional legislation; including the precise measurement of energy in kWh delivered to the car with a receipt signed by the consumer.
The German calibration law indicates that publicly accessible charging stations in Germany and Austria, where the charging station bills the customer directly, must specify the amount of energy delivered in kWh to the user. This also requires the calibration of the displays and indicators at the charging stations. By meeting the compliance standards of Eichrecht, the EVBox Troniq Modular will now enter the German and Austrian market, ready for semi-public and public area usage. EVBox is also putting forward proposed calibrated metering solutions for other countries and fulfilling respective local regulations.
This is a significant milestone for EVBox. Germany and Austria are leading markets for electric vehicles and with our Eichrecht-compliant DC fast chargers, we contribute to building the public and semi-public charging infrastructure for a more sustainable future.(Maurice van Riek, CTO of EVBox)
