Dedicated to providing a vast network of hardware providers to its customers, EV Connect, an EV charging business platform, today announced that LG Business Solutions has joined its Electric Vehicle Charge Station (EVCS) Certification Program. The new Level 2 AC charging stations from LG for the North American market are now fully certified for operation on the EV Connect Platform and within its charging ecosystem. The certification program includes testing and validation of charging stations to ensure that charge station hardware delivers the best possible performance and uptime with the most advanced charging business features.

The EVCS Certification Program evaluates third-party hardware on its ability to meet EV Connect’s rigorous standards for compliance with the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) communication standard, certain payment processing methods, network communications functions, and more. The successful completion of the EVCS Certification signifies that charging station behavior and performance are predictable and deliver optimal functionality for owners during and after deployment. Upon successfully passing these comprehensive tests, the LG Level 2 EV charger and firmware received certification for use on the EV Connect software platform to serve drivers, network operators, and utility use cases.

With more than 14 years in the charging industry, EV Connect is the leading platform for existing and emerging EV charging businesses, enabling quick deployment, management, and scaling of customized EV charging networks. EV Connect’s end-to-end EV charging platform was designed to connect drivers to charging stations, site owners to their ports, and utilities to demand data. EV Connect customers can choose their charging hardware and optimize operations through remote monitoring, customizable alerts, load balancing, and charging access regulation. The platform integrates network management, monetization, hardware certification, driver app, and advanced split-billing and fee management.
