CCS Interoperability Tools & Services
Introducing CCS Charging Session Analyzer from QualityLogic
Electric vehicle adoption is at an inflection point with over 50% of consumers considering electric cars. EV sales are forecast to quadruple over the next three years. There is a massive build-out of charging stations, driven by vehicle manufacturers, charge point operators, and government funding.
However, the interoperability between electric vehicles and charging stations is in a fairly dismal state with over 25% of attempted DC-Fast Charging charge sessions failing due to communication problems, hardware problems, or protocol exchange problems.
These interoperability problems frustrate consumers, are costly for all the manufacturers involved, and could dampen the adoption of EVs. Helping to minimize these interoperability problems is the focus of QualityLogic’s new Charging Session Analyzer.
EVLAB: INTEROPERABILITY ANALYZER FOR THE COMBINED CHARGING SYSTEM
Charging Session Analyzer
QualityLogic’s EV Charging-related product is focused on doing in-depth analysis of CCS traffic between the EV and the EVSE. We think of the Analyzer as an “expert system” that analyses the message traffic to identify anomalies that cause failed charging sessions.
The industry invests a great deal of money validating that different EVs and charging stations work together. The current practice is to get EVs and EVSEs physically together and evaluate any interoperability issues that cause failed charging sessions.
The process is very manual and requires an expert in the message protocols for CCS. This is both expensive and inefficient.
The CCS Charging Session Analyzer is designed to diagnose the root cause of failures. It speeds up charging failure analysis by automating the analysis and incorporating continually improving expertise into the tool.

Free Charging Session Analysis
QualityLogic is offering a free Charging Session Analysis using our Beta Release to help more quickly diagnose CCS charging session failures. This service provides a unique analysis of the Charging Session and is aimed at identifying message exchange issues rapidly and accurately. The Beta supports DIN SPEC, ISO 15118-2, ISO 15118-20, PWM, and SLAC message traffic.
How to Participate
Simply send us any PCAP or PCAPng file of a Charging Session, and we’ll run it through the Analyzer and provide you a report within 48 hours. In return for providing the free analysis service, we will use the files and analysis (anonymously) to improve the Charging Session Analyzer.
