MANTARAY in Action

MANTARAY controls the charging cycle Using either OCPP 1.6 and instructs the charger as to when and by what rate to charge or even discharge (only with supporting DC chargers).

MantaRay handles identification and authorisation and can be connected to RFID readers. It communicates directly to the CSMS (Back Office) or BEMS (Building Energy Management System) to allow for local load balancing of the power.

MantaRay also communicates to a BEMS directly without going though the cloud for low latency local control.

This can be particularly useful for DC chargers that also allow bi-directional power transfer to load balance the supply network under dynamic conditions.

MANTARAY – Software Use Cases

MANTARAY has a large number of customisable software features that can be turned on and off programmatically to fit the use case of the given charger. This includes things such as using RFID for authentication, connecting to a back office for remote control diagnostics, making the most out of a solar PV installation to reduce excess energy going back into the grid and the ability to have multiple connectors (dual socket charger vs single socket).

MANTARAY – Consultancy / Custom Firmware Use Cases

We can offer customized software solutions that would go into MANTARAY to help integrate with your existing set-up, or provide a USP to help you stand out from the rest of the market.

Such solutions include bridging your charger to an alternative communications protocol such as MQTT (instead of the standard OCPP), custom mobile application and web page builds and integrating with your smart Home Energy Management Solutions (HEMS).

MANTARAY – Consultancy / Custom Firmware Use Cases

1) Web Page / App – Custom web page/ APP development

2a) Onboard Application – MQTT – Bridging other comms protocols

2b) Onboard Application – Modbus – Offer additional control options

2c) Onboard Application – Automation – MANTARAY becomes slave of a HEMS (home energy management system)

Why choose MANTARAY Smart Charge Point Communications Controller for your EV charging system?

MANTARAY works with both AC charge points and DC chargers.

MANTARAY uses open standards (OCPP) – a non-proprietary communications protocol that can be used with any supporting Charging System Management Service (CSMS or Back office).

MANTARAY controls the charge rate of the charger via a combination of wireless and/or wired communications platforms of your choice. Expand MANTARAY’s features – use our Charging Blox of modules, software and support to meet your spec.

MANTARAY supports all methods of secure authentication.


What makes a charge point smart? It’s ability to communicate.
MANTARAY’s communications abilities can be configured to suit your bespoke product requirements.
We have insured your solution against the 2G shutdown by enabling MANTARAY with LTE-CATM1 communications.

MANTARAY supports displays from 2.7″ to 10″
