Location Status mapping

Location Status Mapping

GreenFlux has adoped the mapping below between a bespoke 'GreenFlux' status, OCPP, OCPI and Hubject states.
Some states that are defined in OCPI or OCPP might not be mapped fully

The below overview can help to clarify how to and create a better understanding

OCPI Status

The OCPI Location status definitions and descriptions

EV Portal mapping

In the EV Portal on the Charge Station overview, there are different status columns:

  • Connectivity (‘Connection’)
  • Charge Point status (‘Status’)
  • Charging status (‘charging’)
  • EVSE status (‘Connectors’)

Connection has values: Online, Offline, Unknown
‘Unknown’ is when there was never a connection yet, typically when its at a stock location

Status has the values: Enabled, Disabled, Faulted and Unknown

Charging has the values: Yes, No, Unknown

Connectors have the relevant OCPP statuses: Available, Preparing, Charging, SuspendedEVSE, SuspendedEV, Finishing, Unavailable, Faulted. We also include 'unknown' in case we do not get a response.

Any of the above can have an unknown status, with the main underlying reason that there is no established connection to determine any other status. This occurs typically when the Charge Stationis offline or the Charge Station is not yet in the field.
