How does Exploren integrate into the EV Charger?
Smart OCPP-enabled chargers can be commissioned pre-dispatch from Colussus , or retroactively for already-established smart chargers. The chargepoint owners can then monitor, analyse, and control the billing of the chargepoint.
What costs do I need to consider before purchasing the Exploren system?
Costs for Exploren come in the form of software, hardware, and installation. When purchasing OCPP-enabled chargers, some things to consider are:
- How many charging stations will I need?
- How many clusters of chargers will my development need?
- Do I want to bill my customers?
- What charging speed do I need?
Answering these questions will allow Colussus charging experts to determine the right hardware for your solution.
Some other factors to take into consideration are:
- Distance from your power source to where you would like your charger installed
- Any upgrades needed to the distribution board
- Excavation and cable trays needed
All non-residential developments are site inspected and then a quote and a report are created.
Exploren has a small data management fee attached per charger, as well as an annual internet data fee if it is needed. If a 4G connection is required this may also be another fee.

What is load management, and what types of load management do you offer?
Load management is used when the power needed for the charging stations exceeds the power available from the building’s electrical supply. Load management allows the charging station manager to sit at ease knowing that the charging station is not going to trip the switchboard. The Exploren system has three forms of load management, active (dynamically adjusts the power usage of the EV chargers in accordance to the power remaining on the building), static (Sets a limit on how much power the EV Charger uses), scheduled (allows the user to schedule their charging sessions, allowing the user to make the most of off-peak tariffs). Load management gives customisation to the user, it is to be noted that these functions do not come at an extra cost.
(Only allows authorised users to operate the charging station.)
(Radio frequency identification allows a user to authenticate their session using an RFID card.)
(Bills its users a minimum payment regardless of their charging time.)
Primary parking rate
(The rate at which you would want to charge your customers, this can be billed in $AU/kWh or $AU/min)
Primary rate period
(This function can be introduced if the charging station operator wishes to introduce a promotional rate, alongside the primary rate. This can allow a manager to charge more per hour/ per kWh for longer charges.)
Enable kWh Billing
(Allows for a user to charge for kWh instead of $AU/min.)
Can Exploren Link to my home for Fleet and Business Expensing
Yes! Exploren can be enabled to track charging data across multiple locations and smart chargers. This can be monitored and controlled via an online portal, which can be accessed via a smartphone application or a computer. It’s the modern solution to what fuel cards have been for fleets.
