Yay! We’re Officially METLabs Certified!

We are so proud and happy to announce that SemaConnect’s ChargePro 620 Electric Vehicle Charging Station has now achieved METLabs Certification!

What does this mean?

For the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Industry, or the EV charging station industry, reaching certification means that your system has undergone rigorous testing and is now “safe,” to use.  You might have heard about MET, UL, CE, ETL, etc.  You’ll notice on practically all of your electronics that there is some symbol to showcase that the product that you’re using is safe.

This is a huge milestone for SemaConnect, and will continue producing a quality product and software.

Thank you to the entire team at SemaConnect for their hard and tireless work in achieving this.   Thank you to everyone who continues to support SemaConnect and the work that we do.  It is very important us, and means so much.
