EV Management Controller (EVMC).
Manage, Monitor, Control & Monetize your EV charging infrastructure..
Cyber Switching Solutions is introducing a new solution called the EV Master Controller (EVMC). The EVMC brings substantial savings to the installation-costs of these needed charging stations as well as to the monthly utility bill.
Designed to work with myriads of charging stations, the EVMC adds efficient power management and allows for cost-effective deployment of EV charging stations in all sorts of environments. Cyber Switching has changed the established conventional concept of dedicating a ‘Single Power Source’ to provide power to the other charging stations, resulting in a dramatic reduction in power infrastructure needed.
The savings realized by NOT having to bring in full infrastructure for multiple charging stations greatly decreases the time frame for the return on investment.

What is EVMC?
- Quadruples the number of EVs charged from available power circuits
- Reduce panel upgrade & trenching costs by up to 50%
- Easily expand from 1 charger to 4 or more chargers
- Alleviates “Move your EV” concern
- Save 90 hours / month in lost productivity for every 4 stations (typical)
- Everyone gets charge and VIPs can get priority
- Reduce peak demand energy costs by up to 75%
- Time-of-Use and peak demand aware charging
Two Powerfully, Simple
Solutions for your EV environment.
How It Works
The current approach to EV charging requires a dedicated power line to each charging station serving the multiple vehicles. Those lines need to be run from an electrical panel all the way out to the parking area. Installation costs can be prohibitive and there is no guarantee there is room in existing electrical panels or a guarantee that there is available power from the utility company!
Cyber Switching’s system switches power to multiple charging stations in a “round-robin” scenario, so that a single electrical line can feed multiple charging stations, with power incrementally rotating on a programmable timed basis to each vehicle. The EVMC also polls the charging status prior to charging a vehicle and, if charged, moves on to the next vehicle in line.
- Dedicated circuits are required all the way to each charging station.
- Popular charging times will drive peak demand higher.
- No ability to respond to Auto Demand Response.
- Employees lose productivity monitoring and moving their vehicles.
- EV charging power use is unmonitored and unmanaged.
- Facility requirements are reduced from 1/4th to 1/8th!
- Peak demand is reduced from 1/4th to 1/8th, as well!
- Auto Demand Response can include EV charging systems.
- Employee productivity and morale improved.
- Intelligent management of EV charging power use.
The Result: From 4 to 8 times as many vehicles can be charged using the same facilities. Infrastructure material costs for new facilities can be reduced by up to 75%. Monthly utility bills are reduced as the impact of EV charging on peak demand is kept at a minimum. Much more is done with much less.
- Rotational charging:
- Power rotated, continuously searching for a vehicle to charge.
- Once charged, a vehicle falls out of the rotation.
- Charge cycle durations are fully programmable.
- Certain charge stations can get a “priority setting.”
- One circuit for multiple charging stations:
- Electricity demand charges reduced.
- Power use is monitored at each location.
- With optional element, ready for Auto Demand Response
- Infrastructure costs reduced:
- Construction material and labor costs dramatically reduced.
- Less need for individual circuits, pipe or conduit, wire, and circuit breakers.
- Environmental benefits
- Provides more charging stations while minimizing the installation cost of power facilities (by up to 50%).
- Significantly reduces the impact of EV charging on peak demand by up to 75% or more.
- Reduces ”range anxiety” for employees and tenants, as they are assured a charge for their vehicles.
- Allows for charging flexibility with programmable rotation times and priority assignments.
- Increases employee productivity and reduce the stress and ‘down time’ due to having to move their vehicles to and from charging stations.
- Keeps EV fleets charged up effectively and efficiently, while keeping the utility billing at a minimum.
- Allows for greater use of grants and incentives for EV charging system projects.
- Less greenhouse gases produced.
- Output Ratings: 277 Vac, 30A /; 250 Vac 2 hp, motor load ; 40A/240 Vac
- Number of Stations: 4 – 7.7kw to 9.6kw Level 2; 8 – 3.8kw Level 2
Customers Love EVMC
"The choice of Cyber Switching's EVMC maps into the County's sustainability plan across a number of sectors including energy efficiency, transportation, and government operations. We're excited to see technologies deployed in support of our sustainability initiatives."
— Jody London, Sustainability Coordinator, Contra Costa County
"SMUD is working with Cyber Switching to test the charge management capabilities of their EV Master Controller to determine if it can help our customers save money by avoiding the cost of an electrical panel upgrade. We have been able to charge 3 to 4 fleet EVs from a single circuit using their rotational charging technology."
— Dwight MacCurdy, SMUD Energy Research and Development Project Manager.
"We are using Cyber Switching to monitor the energy efficiency of the HVAC systems in our building, as well as billing tenants for their energy use. By using a Multipoint Hub we can manage multiple units at once, and easily differentiate between them using the Dashboard."
— Nathan Galbraith, Sinclair Holdings, LLC.
How many charging stations will the EVMC operate?
Each EVMC has 4 independent channels, each capable of handling 1, 40A level 2 EV charger or 2, 20A level 2 EV Chargers
Can the equipment be installed inside the electrical cabinets?
Can the equipment be installed outside?
Yes, in a NEMA 3R enclosure designed to be installed outdoors
Does it take a qualified electrician to install the device?
Can the customer install it themselves?
This is not recommended, EVMC should always be physically installed and wired by a certified electrician
Will it work on different voltages and currents?
Yes, it will work on any standard worldwide voltage rating up to 40A.
What is the device size?
The physical size of the EVMC device is 14.5″ x 17″ x 2.25″. We are selling the EVMC as a kit mounted on a back plane (need to get exact size) designed to be placed into a NEMA 3r/4x electrical enclosure.
Is the software separate?
No, the device has an embedded processor making it a totally standalone web enabled device.
