ChargePoint launches charging terminal with Scheidt & Bachmann

US-based charging services provider ChargePoint has launched an EV charging payment terminal alongside the German provider of energy retail solutions Scheidt & Bachmann. ChargePoint says the terminal is the charging industry’s first payment terminal to meet the new OCPI industry standards and comply with recently instated EU regulations for EV charging.

The new terminal from ChargePoint meets this standard while featuring Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance, which it says ensures the highest standards of security for transactions. With the EU’s new Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) regulations, ChargePoint says its terminal allows its customers to align simply and cost-efficiently whilst offering a quick and easy payment option for drivers who prefer to pay by credit or debit card for charging. 

The charging services provider says the terminal is suitable for a wide variety of public charging use cases, and that a single terminal can manage payments for up to 99 chargers at a single charging site. The solution can be integrated with existing or new AC and DC charging stations. ChargePoint states that larger fleet operators can integrate the technology into their existing fleet offering via an open API. The software is available to fleet operators in app format.  

The US American firm is partnering up with Scheidt & Bachmann for the launch of the EV charging terminal. The family-owned German company based in Mönchengladbach is a specialist in the development of systems for electronic tickets, while its other business areas include solutions for parking space management and filling station technology as well as signalling technology.

“ChargePoint’s new payment terminal is the first to provide seamless integration via the industry’s newest open standards while meeting the latest EU regulations,” said André ten Bloemendal, SVP of Europe at ChargePoint. “The terminal enables a compliant, plug-and-play solution for Charge Point Operators while making charging quicker and easier for drivers.” 

According to ChargePoint, the new terminal is compatible with chargers from over 50 certified hardware partners, while the payment terminal is designed for integration with ChargePoint’s ‘be.energised’ platform with access to over 85,000 charging ports across Europe.

ChargePoint and Scheidt & Bachmann will be presenting their payment terminal at Power2Drive in Munich from June 19 to 21, 2024.
