Smart Charge Adaptor

The Smart Charge Adapter provides a truly smart EV-charging infrastructure with applications world-wide across residential, workplace, and public locations.

The SCA is EV and EVSE agnostic, so customers are not limited by the EV or charging station from various manufacturers and eliminates the risk of obsolescence or vendor lock-in. The Argonne National Laboratory Invention allows for systems to be tailored to meet the specific needs of site hosts, including utilities, municipalities, workplaces and retail properties.
