KEBA, CADENAS Develop eMobility Product Catalogue

AUGSBURG, Germany, May 18, 2023 – In October 2022, there were 840,645 e-cars on German roads, more than doubling their number since 2021. However, petrol is still the most popular fuel among German drivers: more than 31 million fossil fuel vehicles were counted at the beginning of 2022. 

For the mobility turnaround to succeed, more charging points for electric vehicles must be established as quickly as possible. With this goal in mind, KEBA has developed an electronic product catalogue in cooperation with CADENAS.

Digitalization for electromobility

Based on the eCATALOGsolutions technology by CADENAS, the company is now providing digital twins of a total of 27 charging stations from the KeContactP30 series, which planners can use in common BIM programs. “Digital core data and product data are being requested more and more intensively by our partners and customers every year. The trend towards digital twins for planning and design, especially for larger installations, is clear,” explains Daniel Mabrouk, Service Design Manager Energy Automation at KEBA. 
In the course of the traffic turnaround, architects and electricians are planning evermore buildings with charging points for e-cars. To steer this process into the fast lane, it is important to provide customers with data that contains all the necessary information and is compatible with BIM software. In addition, the data sets “must comply with technical requirements such as connected load, load management, calibration standards or user authorisation,” Mabrouk explains.

eCATALOGsolutions for manufacturers 

In addition to the benefits for planners in the engineering process, KEBA also expects a streamlining of its own workflows: Until now, customers received individually compiled responses to their written enquiries. The new digital product catalogue includes all planning-relevant information and is available to interested parties day and night. 
KEBA is also looking forward to the analysis using the CADENAS Statistics Dashboard. There, manufacturers can determine which products in which variants are particularly in demand. “We hope that this will give us more insight into the needs of the users,” says Mabrouk.
