What is an intelligent wallbox?
The first choice you have to make when you are planning to buy a wallbox is the speed you want to charge with. The optimal charging speed for your situation and car depends on three different variables. To read everything about these variables we would like to refer you to this article. When you have chosen the optimal wallbox for your situation you can choose between 3 different models:
1. Plug & play wallbox
De most basic version is the plug & charge model. This basic wallbox works immediately when you connect it to the car and stops when the car is fully loaded.
2. Plug & play wallbox with display
When you are looking for a bit more comfort we advise you to choose for a plug & charge model with a display. On this display you can read all necessary information about the charging session. On the display you can find the start time of the session, the total load time and the already loaded kWh’s.
3. Smart wallbox
The most advanced version is our smart wallbox, we call it the smartcharge. The smart wallbox is at the moment only available with an output of 7,4, 11 and 22 kWh. The smart wallbox has multiple functions to inform you but also to make sure you can make optimal use of your electricity connection. The smart wallbox provides you with:
- Manual load balancing. With this function you can schedule your charging sessions. By doing this you can make sure that you never use for example the kettle or the washing machine at the same time you want to load your car.
- Automatic, or dynamic load balancing. There are also charging stations that automatically take into account the power consumption in your home. With these charging stations you don't have to worry about the power consumption of your charging station.
- The power load is adjustable by the app. It can therefore accommodate the available power at your home.
- Overview of used kWh’s per charging session for your administration.
- Display which gives you all information about the charging session.
- Remote control by app and all necessary information always accessible by the app.
