Switch officially Plug & Charge certified by Hubject for next generation EV charging infrastructure at scale
  • Josev, Switch’s embedded Operating System (OS) for EV chargers, is officially certified for ISO 15118 powered Plug & Charge (PnC) by Hubject.
  • Charger OEMs using Josev have a headstart on time to market, unlocking savings in time and money on getting hardware PnC approved.
  • The Switch Platform and Josev is now the world’s first software system running on OCPP 2.0.1 and certified by Hubject for PnC.

Berlin, Germany and London, UK – Josev, Switch’s embedded charger OS, is now Hubject certified for Plug & Charge (PnC). This means charger OEMs and networks can integrate PnC across hardware and networks at speed (and a competitive price).

With Josev, EV charger manufacturers can save time and money when integrating ISO 15118-2 and next-generation ISO 15118-20 features into their offerings. These include bi-directional AC and DC power flow and the Megawatt Charging System (MCS). Automated and wireless charging scenarios are coming soon.

In addition, Josev has now dramatically simplified the ISO 15118-2-powered Hubject PnC certification process for charger OEMs.

Use Josev to get Hubject PnC certified

Since Josev is PnC-certified, charger OEMs enjoy a headstart to becoming Hubject certified. This head start imparts benefits on two fronts:

  • Time: Hubject certification can be condensed to a single session, cutting weeks off the certification process.
  • Money: Josev customers can unlock significant savings thanks to the condensed timeframe and workload requirements for Hubject. Some Josev users have already seen savings of up to €10,000.

Commenting on Josev’s Hubject certification, Switch’s founder and CEO Dr Marc Mültin said:"Embedding the latest industry standards into our products to elevate the user experience and, thereby, increase the adoption of EVs is a vital part of the Switch DNA. 

“Our goal is to help EV infrastructure developers create new revenue streams at pace. Over and above that, we're excited to pass the time and cost savings on to our customers. Josev is easy to use and rock solid. It will allow them to expand their offerings quickly.”

Josev meets the full spectrum of industry benchmarks

By being Hubject certified for PnC, Josev meets the two major industry benchmarks for EV charging software (ISO 15118 and OCPP 2.0.1).

Steffen Rhinow, Director Plug & Charge at Hubject added:

“Now that Josev is Plug & Charge certified, the charger OEMs who are its customers have a head start on becoming Hubject certified.

“This represents a big step forward for the industry which can now scale up more reliably and quicker than ever before.”
