Importance of an RFID Card/Token

As an EV Network, Charge Hub operates as both a CPO (Charge Point Operator) and eMSP (eMobility Service Provider).  Where a Charge Point Operator (CPO) is responsible to operate, make available, maintain authorisation rules, and monetise a pool of charging points, on behalf of contracted Charge Station Owners (CSO).  An e-Mobility Service Provider (eMSP) manages the EV Driver side, through registration, payment management, and connects them to available charging station (via the App, Plugshare and any connected mapping provider).  Accessible stations could be from the (Charge Hub) CPO or any connected third party charging networks via Roaming.  Through the (Hubject, Gireve, e-clearing.net) Roaming connection, a Charge Hub Account (and RFID Card) holder could charge on any interconnected charging station, anywhere around the world.

 

The majority of EV charging sessions globally are started and stopped using a charging key - a physical RFID card or tag.  Each RFID card contains a chip with an embedded UID (security code).  This UID is associated with an EMA-ID (the identifier printed on the RFID).  Together, the UID and EMA-ID form a Token which tells the CPO which eMSP's EV Driver is trying to charge, so that the CPO knows where to check whether the EV Driver has a valid payment method or contract and should therefore be allowed to charge at the station.

All physical tokens on the Charge Hub Platform also exist digitally (on the App), so that an EV Driver is able to start a charging session digitally via the App, or with the physical token.  The active session could also be stopped by either the App or RFID Card.

To get started, as a Driver, download the Charge Hub App (from your App Store - follow the link below) and enter your personal details and preferred payment method.  Instantly after registration, your Account will be registered with a Driver Account, with a digital EMA-ID.  Which will allow you to charge immediately, via the Charge Hub App.  You can then request an RFID Card from the App, or from the form above.  Your physical RFID Card will be posted out to you, within 24 hours - from Brisbane (or one of our closer Partners).  You will also be sent an email to your set up Charge Hub User Account.  This User Account will allow you to access your Account and charging history from our Driver Portal.

Drivers, please note, to reduce costs for all parties, we will normally collate all of your charging activity during each week and only bill your Account/credit card once per week, for the total amount used during that week.  Not after every session.

A note for Corporate or Fleet Managers, your collective Driver Accounts can be 'bundled' together and invoiced to one Account, monthly.  Get in Touch for more information.
