Q & A


Why using a EV charger from TPE?
We are a dynamical company with much a lot technical know-how. We develop EV charger under the name of Third Place Energy B.V. (TPE) in The Netherlands and produce in China. The EV charger controller and embedded software are “Made in Europe”.
What is the cost of EV charger?
By TPE, the EV charger ready to sell is demand-based configured. The demand is individually requested. Customer will decide features like cable length, accessibility, installed condition, billing system, then a demand-based configuration will be set, which will be best adapted to your business process.
Is the EV charger adapted to local regulations?
In EU, all electric devices and components need to be conformed with CE certification under 3 regulations (LVD, RED and EMC). All TPE products are comformed with this certification.

All these standards are integrated into our software knowhow and have been tested with more than 20 car types. In certain countries like in Germany, Eichgesetz“ should be followed, which all DC charger in public area need „eichrechtskonformen“. TPE works with manufacturer closely to integrate this DC meter solution. The application of PTB is currently under evaluation.
Are the EV chargers load management controllable?
Yes, our charging stations support the load management and offer different possibilities to realize this. Either a local control on single charger through the display when it sets the limit on the charging power, current (static load management)

Or when there are more power consumers (e.g. charging station or solar generation), the charging station can be with an external controller integrated or controlled through Modbus TCP/IP.

Besides, the charging stations support the load management by OCPP 1.6JSON. This means, the connection through OCPP backend can be remotely controlled and monitored.
Is the charger compatible with various car manufacturers?
