API & backend solutions for e-mobility data

IT interfaces for charging infrastructure

With the modular SMATRICS API, you can easily integrate e-mobility data into your existing backend & ERP systems.

  • Easy integration into existing systems thanks to REST interfaces

  • Administration of charge detail records in your own systems

  • High security due to encrypted communication & certificate-based identification

  • GDPR-compliant solution with server hosting within the EU

API & backend solutions from SMATRICS in action

Innovative companies rely on the SMATRICS API for the integration of e-mobility data

Examples for e-mobility data integration

Data integration of charging points

Both static POI information and dynamic information can be called up via SMATRICS API:

  • static information (e.g. addresses, performance classes)
  • dynamic information (e.g. status: "free", "occupied", "defective")

With this data, you can record and process current information from your charging stations in your own systems, e.g. in card applications or billing systems.

Data integration of charging sessions

All essential details of charging sessions are contained in the so-called charge detail records (CDRs):

  • Start, end & duration of charges
  • Consumption of each charge (kWh)
  • Authorization media used (e.g. RFID)

Via the SMATRICS API, CDRs can be reused in your own systems as required:

  • E-mobility providers (EMPs) use data obtained on a card or on contract basis (with or optionally without tariff logic).
  • Charging point operators (CPOs) use data collected at the charging point or charging network level.

Data integration of authorization media & certificates

The data integration of authorization media - mostly RFID charging cards or, in the future, Plug & Charge certificates - enables:

• Retrieval, collection & updating of authorization media

• Administration of end customer data in your own systems

The direct connection to backend systems simplifies the management of user data and authorization media considerably.
