Schneider Electric has obtained ZE Ready certification from Renault for its EVlink electric vehicle charging infrastructure range.
ZE Ready is a compatibility testing protocol designed to guarantee that internationally accepted standards will be implemented consistently among electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. By applying existing regulations and drawing on existing standards, ZE Ready aims to control the entire charging chain, from charging station design and installation to installer training, preliminary audits, any necessary compliance work and consulting.
David Greaves, national business development manager for EV Charging Solutions at Schneider Electric UK comments: “There are three good reasons for our industry to share Renault’s ZE Ready protocol: to reduce the number of tests that need to be carried out, to obtain and share feedback on compatibility more quickly and to provide users with a guarantee that all installed systems work.
“ZE Ready represents a fundamental step in establishing a protocol that will be shared by all carmakers and electrical equipment manufacturers.”
