Our Eichrecht products for the German market
Eichrecht conformity means that the user of an Alfen charge point is assured of a reliable, trustworthy transaction, in line with the requirements set by German law. Alfen has accomplished Eichrecht conformity by adding a proprietary smart adapter to its charge stations, which ensures the safekeeping of transaction information while maintaining full flexibility in terms of adding new service and features. Furthermore, Alfen’s Eichrecht solution is fully compatible to the SAFE initiative, which allows end-users of charging infrastructure to validate their transactions using one single software tool irrespective of the charge station used.
Alfen has not only received the Baumusterprüfbescheinigung (Module B) certification, but also the Module D conformity on quality assurance of the production process. This means that Alfen has an approved quality system for production, final product inspection and testing of Eichrecht products.
The Eichrecht conformity is applicable to Alfen’s Eve Double PG-line and Eve Double Pro-line. The former is Alfen’s public charge point, while the latter is Alfen’s semi-public charge point which is installed in locations such as offices, supermarkets, and shopping malls.
Certified by CSA
Alfen is certified by CSA, a testing and certification organization accepted by PTB to carry out Eichrecht certification.

Domestic Type-E plugs for the French market
Domestic plugs with access control
The charging station can optionally be equipped with one or two sockets for domestic plugs, each of which can supply up to 16A (3.7kW). Access is usually granted via the RFID card reader, or Plug&Charge. The user can then choose which socket to use. Operators of central management systems can monitor each of the four sockets and process transaction details or invoicing of the consumed energy.
