Electric vehicle (EV) and vehicle-to-grid charge point solutions will be showcased at Southern Manufacturing 2020 by ByteSnap Design, which specialises in embedded systems development. Its smart communications charge point controller and dumb charger meet the government’s EV charging regulations whereby charge points must be “smart” to be eligible for an OLEV (Office for Low Emission Vehicles) grant, explains director, Dunstan Power. “This means charge points must be controllable to help load balance the electricity supply network and prevent overload and permanent damage,” he says. “Our robust new products will help manufacturers and installers effectively develop competitive charge points whilst meeting customer demand. They’ll also work well within the existing power infrastructure,” he adds.
There will also be a 1.8m-tall traffic sign running on the company’s OpenGL framework, SnapUI. The demo will drive the sign’s bank of 160×64 LEDs, showing how the user interface can be used for prototyping and production.
