Webasto Pure

  • The Webasto Pure has the following advantages:

    • Adjustable charging capacity from 3.7 kW to 11 kW or 3.7 kW to 22 kW (depending on which charging capacity you order)
    • A 4.5 m cable with connectors
    • Faster charging than using a standard domestic socket (max. 10 A): up to 5x faster with the 11 kW variant and up to 10x faster with the 22 kW variant
    • Simple and convenient operation
    • Good price/performance ratio
    • High-quality workmanship
    • "Made in Germany" quality
  • The Webasto Pure can charge using a type 2 connector according to EN 62196-2. The type 2 connector complies with the European standard.

  • Included in the scope of delivery of the Webasto Pure there are two small keys. With these universal keys, you can securely lock the charging station so that only you determine who is actually allowed to charge at your charging station. As soon as the key is turned to the open position, the charging process is activated and the electricity flows directly into your vehicle.

  • You can always charge one vehicle using the Webasto Pure.

  • Basically, the variants differ in their charging capacity and the scope of the installation. In addition, different charging cables are fitted to the charging station, matched to the charging capacity. For the 22 kW variant, the installation requires higher fuse ratings and larger supply cable cross sections, among other things. There are also differences when it comes to the grid operators. Most grid operators only require notification of an 11 kW charging Station, while a 22 kW charging station additionally requires approval. Variations in grid quality means that there are regional differences here between the individual operators. For example, in the UK, we generally install single phase, 32amp, delivering a 7.2 kW charging rate.

  • The charging station should only be cleaned with a dry cloth. Please do not use aggressive cleaning agents, wax or solvents. If necessary, you can wipe the cable with a damp towel.

    More information

  • Scan & Charge access control allows you to decide who is actually allowed to charge at your Webasto Next. The user of the charging station authenticates himself via Scan & Charge, where the user scans the QR code at the charging station with his Webasto ChargeConnect app, the wallbox recognizes the user authorization and the charging process starts. In the Webasto ChargeConnect app, any number of users can be registered and managed for a Webasto Next.

    Please note: Scan & Charge works exclusively with the Webasto ChargeConnect App.

  • Two preconfigured QR codes are included in the scope of delivery of the Webasto Next. One should always be kept for safety's sake. In the event that the user needs to use the backup QR code, a copy should be made; this can be done at a print shop, for example. 

  • A router or DHCP switch should be installed between the EMS and the wallbox. Energy management systems usually require an additional external meter; the compatible meters should be requested directly through the EMS provider. A list of compatible energy management systems (EMS) will be published in Q2 2022.

  • A list of compatible manufacturers will be published from Q2 2022.

  • Yes, with a compatible external energy management system (EMS), the Webasto Next can charge PV surplus that supports this function. If the wallbox is connected to the power grid with one phase, phase switching is not necessary. This makes it possible to charge 1.3 kW to 7.4 kW of PV energy into the car; this power is usually sufficient for home PV systems. A list of compatible manufacturers will be published from Q2 2022.

  • A network connection is required for a complete and reasonable use of the Websato Next with all features. Otherwise charging is only possible without authentification ("free charging", i.e. no Scan & Charge). Especially in areas where wireless network connection is unstable, hurdled or technically not possible, e.g. in underground car parking areas, a wired connection is recommended.

  • The Webasto Next will have integrated dynamic load management (stand-alone) as of Q2 2022. Stand-alone means that the current available amperage of the building is recorded via an external meter and sent to the wallbox. The wallbox ensures that the maximum available amperage of the building is not exceeded. In doing so, the Webasto Next dynamically adjusts its power. The Webasto Next cannot communicate directly with other Webasto Next charging stations.

  • No, the Webasto Next is always connected to Webasto ChargeConnect. Nonetheless compatibility with 3rd party backends will be established in the future. Once available, we will provide a list of compatible backend solutions here.

  • The Webasto Next is always supplied pre-configured. There is a installer support application (Webasto Charger Setup App) available which provides a guided configuration support for the qualified electrician.

  • Settings can be conveniently changed via the Webasto Charger Setup App. Alternatively, there will be an integrated configuration interface from Q2 2022, which can be accessed via an IP address (LAN or WLAN hotspot).   

  • The Webasto Next has standard warranty according to legal regulations.

  • In the scope of delivery, there is included the Webasto Next charger with a cable in defined length (4,5 and 7 meters), mounting equipment, drilling template and Quick Start Guide,

  • All downloads and documentations can be found on the product page of the Webasto Next

Whether it is for when you are at home, for your electric fleet or for electric company car drivers - the intelligent charging station makes everyday charging easier for you. Webasto Live is also interesting for users who operate a Home Energy Management System (HEMS) or a photovoltaic system.

  • Basically, the variants differ in their charging capacity and the scope of the installation. In addition, different charging cables are fitted to the charging station, matched to the charging capacity. For the 22 kW variant, the installation requires higher fuse ratings and larger supply cable cross sections, among other things. There are also differences when it comes to the grid operators. Most grid operators only require notification of an 11 kW Charging Station, while a 22 kW charging station additionally requires approval. Variations in grid quality means that there are regional differences here between the individual operators.

  • The Webasto Live can charge using a type 2 connector according to EN 62196-2. The type 2 connector complies with the European standard.

  • You can always charge one vehicle using Webasto Live.

  • The scope of delivery includes two so-called LiveAccess devices with which you can authenticate yourself via RFID technology to Webasto Live. This makes it possible to narrow down the group of users accordingly. The charging process can also be started via the LiveApp. If you do not want to use this authentication option, you can deactivate it via the configuration interface. You can order additional LiveAccess devices from us.

  • In general, this is possible and useful. The photovoltaic system, however, must at least feature a communication interface or a switching output for this. You can ideally control your own consumption with intelligent controls via a Home Energy Management System (HEMS) or a communicating inverter with its own measurement data acquisition system

  • The charging station should only be cleaned with a dry cloth. Please do not use aggressive cleaning agents, wax or solvents. If necessary, you can wipe the cable with a damp towel.

Installation

  • The installation costs vary significantly depending on the conditions at the installation site, and are therefore determined by our installation partner on site during the On-site analysis. The precise installation price depends, for example, on the scope of the installation, on the distance of the charging station from the distribution board and on any through-holes that need to be made.

  • Webasto works with authorised electricians who have the professional prerequisites and experience to install charging infrastructure.

  • An installation manual is enclosed with the delivery. Nevertheless, we point out that the installation may only be carried out by a qualified electrician and recommend the Webasto installation service.

  • Yes, this is possible. Advice: You can benefit from a Webasto partner installation when you order an On-site analysis and then agree to the installation offer. Then, your charging station is installed by a certified electrician.

  • As part of a On-site analysis, an electrician who is specially trained and authorised in charging infrastructure will assess the conditions on site. Sometimes the entire power availability of the utility connection, the meter panel, the type of possible cabling and the desired location of the charging point are assessed to determine if a successful installation is feasible. Finally, and in addition to the On-site analysis, a cost estimate for the necessary work will be drawn up.
