This key may be used anywhere that electric power is supplied for the public or customers. It specifies the type and number of sockets that can be used concurrently. Likely uses are in electric vehicle charging stations, mains hook-ups in campsites, and shore-power connections for boats.

How to map

The tag gives both the type and the number of sockets, so both variables must be indicated. The tag socket=* should not be used.

The correct syntax is

socket:<type>=<number>.

Tags

Key Value Description
socket:<type> Count of available sockets, integral numeric, e.g. 2, or yes if specific number is unknown. A count of the sockets of the specified type that can be used concurrently at that charging station.
socket:<type>:current Current in amperes, numeric, e.g: 16 The maximum current that can be sourced from a single socket of the specified type at that charging station.
socket:<type>:output Power in kilowatts, numeric, e.g: 22 kW. The maximum power that can be sourced from a single socket of the specified type at that charging station.
