HARTING, innogy, and Infotecs partner on an ecosystem for electric infrastructure at Hannover Messe

With a focus on electromobility and the energy transition, HARTING Automotive develops and makes charging cables and associated equipment for electro and plug-in hybrid vehicles for nearly all relevant markets. HARTING, innogy and Infotecs are attending the HANNOVER MESSE to showcase their role as capable partners in an ecosystem for electric infrastructure.

Infotecs presents its encryption solution for charging station communication based on the MICA

The HARTING Automotive range includes a mode 2 charging cable, a mode 3 charging cable and a DC rapid charger plug with the approvals and certificates required by the relevant legal requirements. At the end of 2106, the company became a direct supplier to VW for a specific e-mobility solution and has since become a tier one supplier to BMW. “High-performance rapid charging will improve driver take-up of e-mobility,” says Marco Grinblats, Managing Director HARTING Automotive with conviction.

Using the Rinspeed “Snap” concept vehicle HARTING will present its super fast charging, innogy will supply the charging station – with a lot HARTING hardware inside. Infotecs will encrypt the charging station communication system so that it is hack-proof. Two cars can be safely and comfortably charged at the same time with 22 kw, alternating current. Since the charging station complies with calibration law, only what is used needs to be paid. Through innogy’s IT backend they are intelligently networked.

A software solution from the cyber security and threat intelligence system supplier Infotec protects all the data traffic on the e-charging structure including all the communication between the charging station and the back-end system and the data exchange. HARTING’s MICA edge computing system reads the data from the charging station to provide an individual consumption statement.

However, for HARTING sustainability starts long before the charging station. With innovative concepts, components, customised offers and many years’ experience, the

company is a technology partner for the whole process chain, from the generation of renewable energy with wind turbine systems, through transformer stations and transmission lines to normal and fast-charging stations, creating a meaningful and future-oriented link between the energy transition and the movement towards electric mobility.
