Smart Charging Capabilities
Smart Charging. No doubt you’ll come across these words in your search for a charging station. It defines all intelligent functionalities in our charging stations that help you to optimize the charging process, making it an indispensible feature for operators of multiple charging points.
Smart Charging creates and distributes the available power in an efficient and flexible manner. Thanks to this, you’ll be able to avoid unnecessary costs such as overcapacity fees charged by grid operators, and you’ll get the most out of your charging stations in case of limited power capacity, any time, any place.
Depending on your subscription plan, the BackOffice gives you access to our Smart Charging solutions: Load Balancing, Peak Shaving, and Hub / Satellite.
Load Balancing maintains sufficient energy capacity
Maintain sufficient capacity for your active charging stations with the Load Balancing service. This service is essential for cases in which there is insufficient energy capacity available at a single location to operate all charging stations at the same time. In this scenario, Load Balancing enables charging stations to automatically sensor and distribute the power proportionally over all charging poles.
Peak Shaving prevents overcapacity
Distribute the available capacity per location proportionally over all charging stations in use with the Load Balancing service. This service ensures that each car is optimally charged within the limits of your charging stations’ and facility’s capacity. It also enables you to set a variable kWh or start tariff for your charging stations. This allows you to avoid any additional costs when you reach overcapacity, as you motivate users to charge during off-peak hours.
Hub / Satellite ensures cost efficiency
Multiple charging stations can be managed easily with the Hub / Satellite service, which connects a group of charging stations per location to each other through a single communication device and BackOffice plan. Operate multiple charging stations cost effectively with the Hub / Satellite configuration, which connects up to 20 charging points per location through a single communication device. This will substantially improve and facilitate the management of all charging stations and related sockets.
