A fleet of 300 electric vehicles (EVs) is transporting athletes and officials between venues during the 2012 London Olympic Games. The charging posts used by the fleet will be among the busiest electric vehicle charging posts in Europe during the event and reliability was a key requirement. ChargePoint Services asked ByteSnap to develop new electronics and software for the GE Energy DuraStation charging posts that LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games) had selected. The original electric vehicle charging post design used a standalone PC to authorise EV charging; to provide connectivity with ChargePoint’s central management system, ByteSnap designed a Windows Embedded Compact-based board to replace the PC, adding metering and remote management features via GPRS backhaul. ChargePoint’s central management system monitors the charging posts and provides control [...]

ByteSnap in UK First at National Electronics Week

2015-10-05T22:32:17+00:00

The ByteSnap Design team would like to thank all delegates who visited our stand at National Electronics Week 2012 - who also got to witness a UK-first at the trade show. ByteSnap Design demonstrated the first-ever ZigBee Smart Energy module to combine metering and control in a single, low power platform. The Smart Energy module - the ZMM-01 - helps accelerate time to market thanks to three key features: lower power, faster deployment and trouble-free compliance with wireless standards. The module is suited to distributed control and monitoring systems, such as electric vehicle charging, street lighting control and HVAC control. The module was on show at National Electronics Week measuring power consumption and controlling the micro-Scalextric bicycles via a ZigBee Pro wireless network. A user interface - generated by our own [...]
