Hardware-agnostic use cases to consider
Install the right charger at the right location
EV charging sites vary. Depending on their location, they require different types of stations or a mix of models. It turns out that there are charging station models that are more suitable for moderate temperatures, while others are more suited to extreme temperatures. In very hot or cold latitudes, some stations outperform others. A similar thing occurs in areas prone to temperature fluctuations. Charging stations with varying technical specifications along with a system that can manage this hardware diversity are the solution to the problem.
Manage private and commercial EV charging from one platform
Numerous use cases often involve different charge points and in many cases multiple charge point manufacturers.
For instance, if your business provides both home and on-the-go charging, you need two distinct types of charging stations – AC and DC chargers, respectively. Both types of stations serve various consumption patterns and require different information from EV drivers, such as charging profiles, pricing plans, and tariffs. The level of complexity may increase indefinitely. AMPECO’s hardware-agnostic EV charging platform can solve this problem, ensuring that your business operations run smoothly.
Change your business model at any time
In a quickly evolving industry like EV Charging, uncovered niches and use cases are constantly emerging, and businesses must be nimble enough to accommodate demand for a variety of charging stations at the same time. An EV Charging management system that can support different brands and types and models of charging stations makes any business incredibly competitive.

Hardware-agnostic EV charging platform FAQs
What is a hardware-agnostic EV charging platform?
A hardware-agnostic EV charging solution allows you to add charging stations from multiple manufacturers to your network and manage them from one platform. For this to be possible, your software needs to support the Open Charge Point Protocol that enables charging stations and management software to integrate with one another.
How do I benefit from a hardware-agnostic charging management platform?
Usually, in order to handle diverse geographical locations, use cases, or business models, you must be flexible and ready to include different charging station models, or even various charging station types from multiple manufacturers, into your network.
Using a hardware-agnostic charging platform enables you to mix and match charging stations across your network.
Why is it so critical that my software be fully OCPP-compliant?
If your EV charging software is not fully OCPP-compliant, and your charging stations are, then you will not be able to take full advantage of the hardware.
The full implementation of OCPP ensures that communication between your software and the stations in your network will always be up to date and you have access to all the EV charging data.
What are the risks of choosing software that is not hardware-agnostic?
When your hardware works only with its proprietary software you are at the mercy of their fees and you are left without a choice of changing your hardware to a more affordable or suitable configuration. If the proprietary software vendor discontinues their production or support, you would be stuck with stations that are no longer supported and you’ll have no choice but to replace them.
