Load balancing wallbox
At Wallbox Discounter you can find an affordable, high-quality charging station in the form of wallbox charging boxes with which you can easily and economically charge the battery of your electric car. In addition, the load balancing option is offered as an option. But what is a load balancing wallbox and what is the difference between charging with 'manual load balancing' and 'dynamic load balancing'? We explain it so that you can make the right choice.
What is load balancing?
The term load balancing means that the wallbox has an option to regulate the available power. A wallbox requires a lot of power from the power grid. That is why it is wise to buy a wallbox with load balancer. With the help of the load balancer wallbox, you can regulate the maximum available power for charging the car and thus reduce the power consumption in the house and adjust it as desired when needed.
When to choose a load balancing wallbox?
More and more households have a heat pump, air conditioning, electric hob, electric oven or generally have more electrical appliances. With all these electrical devices, in combination with the charging of electric vehicles, your power grid is coming under increasing pressure. Do you want to be sure that this does not cause any problems? Then it is wise to consider a wallbox with load balancing. Especially if you have many devices in your home that consume a lot of power. A wallbox with load balancing is also called a smart wallbox and ensures a more even load on the power grid when necessary. You can ensure that the power is regulated in a smart way.
Two types of load balancing wallboxes
At Wallbox Discounter you can find two types of load balancing stations for charging your electric car: a wallbox with manual load balancing and dynamic load balancing. Below we explain the difference between a manual and dynamic wallbox.
What is manual load balancing?
Manual load balancing means that you manually adjust the maximum load capacity of the wallbox. With the help of an app, which you can download for free on your mobile phone, the charging capacity is easily adjustable. For example, adjusting the maximum available power downwards can be useful when charging during the day or when there are other devices with a lot of power consumption on. A wallbox with this form of load balancing is most suitable when you have a fairly fixed charging pattern. For example, when you always load in the evening or at other fixed times.
How does dynamic load balancing work?
Dynamic load balancing means that the wallbox automatically takes into account the power consumption in the house and dynamically adjusts the charging current. When many devices are on at the same time, the dynamic load balancing wallbox will automatically set less charging capacity for charging electric vehicles. The wallbox will dynamically adjust the charging current and only supply the maximum available current to the connected car. In this way, the smart charging of electric cars is possible. A wallbox with dynamic load balancing is most suitable when you have a more irregular charging pattern or when there are often many energy-consuming devices on at the same time, such as an air conditioning or heat pump. The total power consumption and the available capacity for charging is automatically regulated: a wallbox with dynamic load balancing is therefore an intelligent charger!
