Available UART Serial commands include:

  • Set electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) pilot (available power) level — 5 levels
  • Monitor vehicle connected status
  • Monitor EVSE active/inactive status
  • View advanced EVSE diagnostics information
  • System defaults to hardwired digital load management if serial communication is lost

The digital load management interface features four levels of output power control and optically-coupled open collector output — pulled low when EVSE makes power available for charging.

COSMOS allows users to easily add EV charging to existing building and energy management or other control infrastructure.
