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
In principle, 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 parking lot 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 - to continue operating the auxiliary heating or air conditioning system, for example.
These load management options are possible with Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control
With Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control , static and dynamic load management - the latter, however, only in combination with the Heidelberg Combox Lite) - possible.
- Static load management: Here, a defined maximum charging power is distributed among 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 as needed. For this control, the Heidelberg Combox Lite is connected to the back end via OCPP 1.6. The information on the maximum charging current is passed on to Combox Lite via the LAN interface and distributed to the wallboxes that are currently charging a vehicle. Our blogger Christian describes more information about the respective advantages and areas of application. here.

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. In this way, you protect the climate and your wallet twice over.
The wallbox for multiple users in the apartment building
With its integrated load management system, the wallbox is ideal for the multi-family house, as it enables simultaneous and on-demand charging of up to 16 electric or hybrid vehicles. But on the subject of charging infrastructure in apartment buildings, the question often arises as to the rights and obligations of tenants and landlords with regard to the installation of charging solutions. Generally speaking, in a multi-family house, the path to one's own wallbox is not quite as uncomplicated as in a single-family house. But the legislator has done a lot to ensure that the path to a charging option in a multi-party building is nevertheless as simple as possible. In the AMPERFIED blog, our expert Christian has taken a closer look at this topic.
