What is an OCPP Backend?

A charging station backend is software that enables billing, management, monitoring and maintenance of e-charging stations. With a backend, you can charge for charges, automate billing, monitor charging stations, and more. With eCarUp, the station owner normally takes responsibility for the operation. Nevertheless, the operators do not have to worry about collection, because billing is fully automated and station operators can adjust the terms of use at any time in our web portal.

Do I have to integrate all my charging stations into the eCarUp backend?

No, while many of our customers use the eCarUp backend for their entire charging infrastructure, the eCarUp backend can also be used for smaller individual charging stations to test our OCPP backend first.

For which charging stations is the eCarUp backend suitable?

eCarUp is compatible with numerous charging station manufacturers and models. Because our backend complies with the Open Source communication standard Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) 1.6 JSON. This is a standard software interface for communication between e-charging stations and a backend, such as eCarUp. Stations from a wide variety of manufacturers can be activated and billed via the OCPP interface, and a set of standard commands can be exchanged between the backend and the station. Although OCPP is a standard, we test every charging station before declaring it compliant to make sure everything works for you.

How long does the integration into the eCarUp backend take?

Integration with our OCPP backend is almost a click of a mouse. If you have access to a station, you can immediately start with the integration. For this purpose we have published a lot of tutorials for the different charging station manufacturers on our wiki.

For more advanced features like reports or integration with third party systems you need to spend a bit more time to get the most out of it.

Is eCarUp Free really free?

For charging station providers: yes! eCarUp Free is not a free trial version but offers all the important basic functions for billing and managing charging stations. You can add hundreds of charging stations and unlimited users and the number of charges is unlimited. And if your demands increase, our software grows with you. You can easily upgrade to Premium.
