Our EVSE Controllers

The EVSE Protocol Controller (EPC) products are a range of EVSE controllers for AC EV chargers that enable Mode 3 charging in accordance with IEC 61851. They are the intelligent component of a charge point assembly, which provides communication between an EV and a charge point as well as to back-office and access control devices, depending on the application.

Ecoharmony designs and manufactures these controllers in the UK and supply directly to OEMs globally. They are also available to buy from our store for smaller projects.

EPC 1.0

The EPC 1.0 was the first generation of 35mm wide DIN rail mounted EVSE controllers brought to market around 2015. Many of these earlier variants have been discontinued and superseded by later generations, but a Tethered only variant exists to provide a low-cost solution for up to 22kW AC tethered cable charge points that do not require smart functionality or connectivity options found in the later generations.

EPC 2.0

The EPC 2.0 builds on the success of the 1st generation EVSE Controller and introduces connectivity options and additional configurable features in the same 35mm wide DIN rail module. These include support for a Residual Current Monitor (RCM), PEN Loss detection, supply optimisation and MODBUS over RS485 which help manufacturers and installers cost-effectively meet regulations.

Additional Electrical Safety Features

  • RCM Support to detect DC leakage currents of >6mA, which allows the use of a RCD Type A instead of RCD Type B in the charging system
  • PEN Loss Detection system will disconnect all live conductors and PE conductor in the event of a failure/loss of the PEN conductor in the distribution network

EPC 3.0

The EPC 3.0 is our most advanced EVSE controller and your gateway to effortless smart EV charging.

It features all the protection mechanisms of EPC 2.0 whilst adding OCPP 1.6j in an industry leading compact form. EPC 3.0 offers smart charging functionality including load management, user access control and back-office integrations for remote scheduling and energy monitoring.

The load management capabilities, which can be configured both locally and remotely, protect against overcurrent and optimise the power distribution in a multi-charge point system.

The EPC 3.0 EVSE controller is the ideal technology solution for creating a smart EV charge point, whether for domestic or commercial applications.

  • Local & remote load management capabilities 
  • RFID access control support (local and remote configuration) 
  • OCPP 1.6j 
  • WiFi - 802.11 b/g/n
  • Modbus over RS485
