Dynamic Load Management

With the dynamic load management of the Webasto Next charging station you not only save costs, it also helps you avoid peak loads and thus power outages. This is because it manages the total load within a system. The total available power as well as the power consumption of the building are taken into account. The optimal charging power for the connected electric vehicles is dynamically adjusted.


Key facts at a glance:

  • Efficient use of available energy
  • Avoiding peak loads prevents high costs
  • Numerous safety features such as overload protection
  • No cost-intensive expansion of the grid connection necessary
  • Interfaces for connecting external meters

PV Surplus Charging

An energy management system (EMS) can control all energy flows depending on the generation (PV), consumption or battery storage and thus regulate the total load centrally. The Webasto Next charging station can be flexibly integrated into both commercial and private EMS thanks to their communication interfaces Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) and Modbus TCP. For example, excess power from the photovoltaic (PV) system can be used for the charging station. With just a few clicks, the installer can link the wallbox to the energy management system. 


Key facts at a glance:

  • Own power consumption monitoring and optimization
  • Intelligent charging with advanced power distribution
  • High cost savings by avoiding peak loads
  • Demand-oriented control of multiple consumers
  • Interfaces for external electricity meters
  • Connection to other smart devices
