Depot CONNECT

Designed to maximize the uptime of your electrified fleet

Our Depot CONNECT digital software solution helps you maximize your uptime while reducing CAPEX and OPEX. Depot CONNECT lets you benefit from enhanced operational transparency, reduced energy costs, increased availability, and smooth integration, with all operating data and charge control at your fingertips.

Load-shaving with Depot CONNECT

Without smart charging, the charging operations are uncontrolled and start whenever buses are plugged. This results in power peaks above the depot’s maximum power capacity. Depot CONNECT allows you to set power limits for charger groups and gives you a smart-charging, load-shaving approach to protect the power capacity of your e-Depot.

Load-shifting with Depot CONNECT

Without smart charging, buses will start uncontrolled charging as soon as they plug in. As a result, power peaks can occur when electricity is most expensive. Depot CONNECT allows you to set power limits for charger groups and shift loads to times when consumption is less expensive, reducing the operational costs of the fleet.

Dynamic scheduling of charging operations

Depot CONNECT provides the right prioritization algorithms for optimized charging regardless of the layout of your e-Depot. FIFO, FILO, SPLIT, or Roundrobin – the algorithms ensure that the defined maximum power capacity is never exceeded and that available power is dynamically distributed to all connected vehicles.

Depot CONTROL

Optimize the charging and cost control of your electrified fleet

Complementing our digital software solutions in the Depot CONNECT package, Depot CONTROL offers adaptive charging control based on schedule, power constraints, and energy prices – to put energy-efficient and dynamic optimization of e-fleet charging at your fingertips. In addition automated preconditioning of the passenger cabin is integrated into the charging control enabled through VDV261.

Dynamic replanning based on the actual situation

Demand charges caused by uncontrolled charging reduced by 50 percent thanks to an optimized charging plan in Depot CONTROL.

High energy costs resulting from uncontrolled charging at times of unfavorable time-of-use energy prices can be reduced by 40 percent  with an optimized charging plan in Depot CONTROL.
