The Concept

Pulse by LAFON: Charging terminals, Management and Services

LAFON Technologies is one of the first companies to commercialise a complete electric vehicle charging offer. The Pulse solution has been conceived as a global solution that satisfies all the needs of electro-mobility in relation to electric vehicle recharging.

Charging terminals

Public terminals are essential to reassure drivers and allow them top up their charges where they park their vehicles or provide a service to those that do not have a private garage. The LAFON PULSE charging terminals are based on the best of LAFON's 20 years of experience in designing and conceiving public energy distribution terminals for vehicles. During the last 5 years, LAFON has continuously innovated to be able to offer a large range of charging systems and their components.

  • A full range of intelligent public distribution terminals from 3kW AC to 50 kW DC, Combo / CHAdeMO, available in several designs and shapes.
  • A networked charging terminal system that is integrated in OEM by several manufacturers.
  • The very complete CHARGE PULSE management / supervision server that provides fleet management functions for operators and maintenance engineers from customer relations through to payment, assisting with maintenance operations (remote access, intelligent alarms...) and careful energy management (Smartgrid function) whilst ensuring interconnection with third party servers (future national operator via GIREVE, OCPP to other supervision servers...).

OUR COMMITMENTS

All the PULSE charging terminals developed by LAFON share the following characteristics:

Manufacturer's CE certification: compliant with NF C15-100, IEC 61851 (charging modes for electric vehicles), EN 62196-2 (electrical connectors for electric vehicles) and NF EN 60204-1 (Safety of machinery – Electrical equipment of machines), ZE Ready approved.

Our terminals have been developed by the LAFON technical design team and are made in France which ensures that we have complete control over the both products' production and life cycles.

Our charging stations integrate protection within the terminal structure (minimised changes in electrical junction boxes and maximised protection).

Our expertise in petroleum service stations has allowed us to optimise our terminals' tolerance to intensive use without supervision (use of materials that resists corrosion and vandalism).

  • Compliance with the highest safety standards: :

  • Carefully designed user-friendliness for simple use:
    • Large graphic LCD screen ensuring ease of use and visibility even in sunlight
    • Disabled access
    • Explicative signage on terminals and guidance by LED to facilitate usage
    • SMS sent to user at end of charging
    • Optimised accessibility (identification via SMS, store cards, payment card...)
  • Communicating:
    • Access to the ChargePulse cloud solution
    • GPRS /3G/4G Wi-Fi or Ethernet via cable
    • Automatic remote maintenance and updating
  • • Compliance with your visual identity :
    The PULSE terminals can be customised and adapt to the requirements of conservation authorities such as Bâtiments de France.

Charging system monitoring

All data transiting by ChargePulse are secured by the SSL secure web protocol and the https access.

ChargePulse is a multi-compatible application (PC, tablet, smartphone) that manages client relationships between electric vehicle users and owners of charging stations. It only takes a few clicks to locate the nearest terminal.

All data transiting by ChargePulse are secured by the SSL secure web protocol and the https access.

Supervision system that is compatible with those of other players in the field of electric mobility thanks to its OCPP roaming compatible platform.

ChargePulse can also be accessed from a smartphone to locate the nearest free charging station, reserve it and monitor vehicle charging time.

Prepayment - via credit card payment interface or cashier. On-line payment: With smartphone or NFC card. Delayed payment (clients with accounts) - Billing at end of period

Services

Because the best product is of no use without high quality services, our services are organised around MADIC, our holding company, and our partners who ensure installation and operational maintenance for electric vehicle charging systems.

Our partners' services benefit from full manufacturer's support at each phase of the project: training, assistance with installing the first terminals, maintenance technical aid, software updates and patches.

LAFON provides this service via its STP (Support Technique aux Professionnels - B2B technical support) department which is organised to ensure support services on a daily basis for all LAFON products including the charging terminals.
