THE ADVANTAGES OF YOUR WALLBOX WITH LOAD MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
WALLBOX WITH LOAD MANAGEMENT:
That’s what it means.
How the wallbox with integrated load management works
Basically, the power resources at a charging station are limited. At peak times – for example, when several hotel guests, restaurant visitors, employees or customers want to charge their electric and hybrid vehicles – this could theoretically become a problem and not all vehicles could be charged directly. This would cause frustration and discontent, which one would naturally like to avoid.
The solution: a load management system in the wallbox. It distributes the available charging energy to all vehicles to be charged. An example: In a car park with 10 charging stations and 5 charging vehicles, another vehicle is added. Without load management, newly added vehicle owners might have to wait until other vehicles release the charging energy to be able to charge themselves – the maximum possible charging energy would ultimately be occupied.
With load management, on the other hand, the wallbox is simply connected to the vehicle and the energy supply of the other wallboxes is distributed to the new vehicle. As soon as an e-car is fully charged, it is supplied with sufficient charging energy in standby mode – for example to continue operating the auxiliary heating or air conditioning system.
These load management options are possible with the Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control
With the Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control, static and dynamic load management are possible – the latter, however, only in combination with the Heidelberg Combox Lite – are possible.
- Static load management: Here, a fixed maximum charging power is distributed to the charging points.
- Dynamic load management: Depending on the power consumption in the building, the power available for the charging stations can be flexibly adjusted up to the level of the grid connection power and distributed to electric and hybrid vehicles according to demand. For this control, the Heidelberg Combox Lite is connected to the backend via OCPP 1.6. The information on the maximum charging current is passed on to the Combox Lite via the LAN interface and distributed to the wallboxes that are currently charging a vehicle.
Example: 5 wallboxes
Example 22 kW for 5 wallboxes – load management when charging ends
The wallbox for efficient and sustainable charging
Connect the wallbox to your PV system
Do you have a photovoltaic system and a Home Energy Management System, a so-called HEMS? The Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control can be easily connected to this system via Modbus RTU. In this way, you can use your own surplus electricity from the PV system to charge your electric or hybrid vehicle. At the same time, the system only feeds as much solar power into the wallbox as is currently available. This is twice as easy on the climate as it is on your wallet.
The wallbox for several users in an apartment building
With its integrated load management system, the wallbox is ideal for the apartment building, as it enables the simultaneous and on-demand charging of up to 16 electric or hybrid vehicles. However, on the subject of charging infrastructure in apartment buildings, the question of the rights and obligations of tenants and landlords with regard to the installation of charging solutions often arises. Generally speaking, the path to a wallbox in an apartment building is not quite as uncomplicated as in a single-family home. However, the legislator has done a lot to ensure that the path to a charging option in a multi-apartment building is nevertheless as simple as possible.
Charging technology made in Germany
For more than 170 years, the HEIDELBERG brand has stood for quality and sustainability in the global printing industry. But we also convince as a brand for wallboxes and charging columns with innovative, customer-oriented solutions. We have given this commitment, which has been in place since 2014, a name: Amperfied.
The wholly owned subsidiary founded in April 2022 stands for smart charging technology made in Germany and aims to be a trustworthy and reliable partner on the road to the future of electromobility.
