I’m finding the OCM API very useful for one of my projects, yet, I’m coming across a problem that I can’t quite figure out.
Many charging stations have multiple connectors, but only one of them can be used at a time. My understanding is that the NumberOfPoints field in the API should indicate the number of simultaneous charges…in other words, how many cars can be charged by the single charging station. However, many of these chargers have no value for NumberOfPoints. A good exmaple is OCM ID 157335. This charging station has 3 connectors: Type 2 (falsely shown as DC), CHAdeMO, and Type-2 CCS, however NumberOfPoints is “Null”.
Should we assume that this charger can only charge one car at a time or that all 3 connectors can be used at the same time? Or is it simply not possible to know for sure?
Any insight is greatly appreciated!
