E-cars are more in demand than ever, and the topic of electric mobility is becoming increasingly important in private households as well as in trade and industry. More and more car manufacturers are offering a variety of electric cars, which are increasingly becoming part of our everyday lives. In order for electric mobility to be introduced sustainably, a network of demand-oriented and, above all, intelligent charging infrastructure is needed. A PV system is ideal for feeding the vehicles with electricity in one's own home.
For your own charging station at home, you need a control system that makes all photovoltaic generation and self-consumption data visible and controllable. This allows the wallbox to dynamically adjust the charging current for the electric car and thus use 100 % clean energy for charging the electric car. Of course, dynamic charging can also be deactivated to increase the charging speed. We can provide you with charging stations that are perfectly tailored to your needs. The products of our partners are available with power ratings of 11 kW or 22kW and plug type 2, they enable fast charging with up to 22 kW (up to 10 x faster than at a normal household socket). The charging time is then approx. 60 minutes (depending on the battery capacity and charging power of the electric vehicle). The charging power can easily be adjusted to 11kW or 3.7kW.
And because we know that electric vehicles simply need to be charged as quickly as possible, our wallboxes have been successfully tested with all available electric vehicles and charge quickly, easily and reliably. Whether it's the BMW i3, smart fortwo electric drive, Renault ZOE or Tesla Model S - your electric vehicle will be charged in no time at all and will always have full range. Our renowned partners, including KEBA, MENNEKES, KEBASTO and E3DC, have high-performance products that are perfectly matched to your requirements and circumstances.
Fast and efficient charging with the KeContact P30. And it is already ideally equipped for the smart home of the future. Your wallbox can be easily controlled or status information retrieved via User Data Protocol (UDP). For example, the maximum permitted power consumption of your electric vehicle can be regulated depending on the photovoltaic system, battery storage or heat pump.
Via the Modbus TCP protocol, meter data from a separate meter located at the house connection can be read. The wallbox can thus control the charging power of the electric vehicle depending on the current consumption.
The AMTRON® Charge Control wallbox was specially developed for easy charging at home and impresses with future-proof, smart technology. Networking with an intelligent home energy management system was taken into account during development. A later update to EEBus and direct connection to a smart meter gateway are possible. Thus, users of AMTRON® Charge Control are equipped for all challenges of the future and can charge their e-car safely and intelligently at home for many years. In addition, RFID chips included and already taught-in enable restricted access to the wallbox - for example for use in a carport. Alternatively, the AMTRON® can also be started without authorisation.
The ABL eMH1 the ideal space-saving charging solution for garage and outdoor use. The ABL Wallbox is equipped with a DC fault current detection, which guarantees a particularly high protection. Generous charging cable (Type-2) of 6m included. The FI switch type A, which is otherwise still necessary for the electrical installation of many wallboxes, is omitted in this eMH1 wallbox from ABL, because it is already installed. Test winner of the ADAC Motorwelt 12/2018.
Currently, charging stations and the necessary installation and commissioning by a specialised electrical company are subsidised with up to 900 euros (charging capacity 11 kW). The demand is huge, and the federal government wants to make electromobility more attractive through large funding pots. The goal is ten million electric cars in Germany, and currently up to 2,500 applications are being submitted to KFW-Bank. Since 24 November, it has been possible to apply for KfW funding. The application must be submitted before the purchase of a charging station. For more information on the funding and how to apply, visit www.kfw.de
