QualityLogic Program and Test Tools Used by UL to Test AeroVironment and Kitu Systems Products for Conformance

February 10, 2016

AeroVironment has implemented the IEEE 2030.5 standard in its model EVSE-RS EV charging station, one of the most widely deployed home EV chargers in North America. “The IEEE 2030.5 standard is accepted and increasingly used as a communications protocol for many types of devices, including solar smart inverters,” said Alec Brooks, Chief Technology Officer for AeroVironment’s Efficient Energy Systems business segment. “The marketplace is moving towards open standards with independent validation, and IEEE 2030.5 represents a compelling solution. The results of the UL and QualityLogic testing will increase the adoption rate for this standard and will help AeroVironment meet key criteria for deployment of new grid-tied technologies, such as electric vehicles, which we are actively supporting. It also ensures secure and reliable communications for our customers.”
