Committed to furnishing its clientele with an extensive array of hardware options, EV Connect, a prominent EV charging platform, disclosed today that LG Business Solutions has enlisted in its Electric Vehicle Charge Station (EVCS) Certification Program. LG’s latest Level 2 AC charging stations designed for the North American market have obtained full certification for compatibility with the EV Connect Platform and its charging environment. This industry-leading certification initiative entails thorough testing and validation of charging stations, ensuring optimal performance and uptime alongside advanced charging business functionalities.

“Completing the EV Connect certification reinforces LG’s commitment to adhere to the highest industry standards to deliver the reliability, quality, and features required to be successful in the EV charging market,” said Michael Kosla, U.S. senior vice president at LG Business Solutions, which just opened its new EV charger production factory in Fort Worth, Texas. “We look forward to using the reliability and quality of the EV Connect Network, as well as EV Connect’s maintenance services and vertical sales capabilities, to help grow our charging business across the U.S.”

The EVCS Certification Program evaluates third-party hardware on its ability to meet EV Connect’s rigorous standards for compliance with the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) communication standard, certain payment processing methods, network communications functions, and more. The successful completion of the EVCS Certification signifies that charging station behavior and performance are predictable and deliver optimal functionality for owners during and after deployment. Upon successfully passing these comprehensive tests, the LG Level 2 EV charger and firmware received certification for use on the EV Connect software platform to serve drivers, network operators, and utility use cases.

“We are delighted to welcome LG as the latest charging hardware provider dedicated to open standards and interoperability in the EV ecosystem, and we look forward to an ongoing collaboration to ensure that charging stations in the field perform consistently and meet driver expectations,” said Ram Ambatipudi, SVP of Business Development at EV Connect. “When great chargers meet great software, customers can build the best possible services on top of our charging network platform. These are the keys to advancing the electric mobility sector.”

With more than 14 years in the charging industry, EV Connect is the leading platform for existing and emerging EV charging businesses, enabling quick deployment, management, and scaling of customized EV charging networks. EV Connect’s end-to-end EV charging platform was designed to connect drivers to charging stations, site owners to their ports, and utilities to demand data.
