Awards

Austrian Standards, Austrian member of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), honours every year selected companies and institutions for their standardization activities and innovations with the “Living Standards Award”. Out of five award categories Easelink won the Living Standards Award with Matrix Charging® in the category “Developing Future Technologies”.

On the 23rd January 2020, the ceremony for the most important Austrian award for standardization and innovation took place at Austrian Standards in Vienna. Easelink with its developments for the automated conductive charging solution Matrix Charging® received the award in the category “Developing Future Technologies”. The award mainly recognizes Easelinks extraordinary work on the application and development of standards within product development.

To ensure system functionality and safety international standards like ISO 26262 (Automotive Functional Safety) are a core element within the development of Matrix Charging®. Automated charging devices for passenger cars are a cutting-edge technology and not yet sufficiently covered by existing standards. Therefore, it is necessary to create new standards and to adopt existing ones. Easelink is working actively on setting the international standard for automated conductive charging of electric vehicles to enhance an interoperability of vehicles and charging infrastructures with a standardized system.
