For InCharge customers who utilize the fleet-focused In-Control OCPP software platform, the ICE-180 easily connects with In-Control to automate the process of collecting EV charging data. In-Control can manage and help streamline the charging infrastructure of an entire fleet, reducing operational costs and total cost of ownership (TCO) in the process, as well as reporting Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits where available.

The ICE-180 is the second offering in the expanding InCharge hardware portfolio, which includes the innovative ICE-30 DC Wallbox. Launched in Q4 of 2021, the wallbox is the first DC fast charger of its kind with vehicle-to-grid, vehicle-to-building and vehicle-to-x capabilities, also known as bi-directional charging. The bi-directional charging capability will allow a vehicle to provide energy from its battery pack to a building, onsite storage devices or the utility grid in certain markets. The ICE-30 is powerful, efficient and compatible with CCS and CHAdeMO connectors.
