What are the possibilities and limitations?

Most housing cooperatives have electrical installations with limited capacity left over for charging. We offer solutions for full dynamic load balancing that ensures efficient charging by optimizing the use of the available power.

Will costs and power be distributed fairly?

Fairness is crucial. Our solution for dynamic load balancing works both offline and online and distributes the available power evenly to all connected cars. Prioritized charging for selected spots is also possible.

How little administration do you want?

A charging facility shouldn’t have to mean an added workload for those on the board. Our flexible administration system CloudCharge provides a simple way to monitor consumption, control access, and more.

How do you provide a solution anyone can use?

A good charging facility should be easy to use. Our test-winning charging stations and simple access control and payment solutions allow residents to manage everything on their own, limiting administration for the board.

Seemingly simple solutions often become complicated when things no longer work. We are a total solutions provider, meaning that our products and systems are all made for each other, and have uptimes of nearly 100%.

Efficient charging that always works

Charging solutions that are dependent on cloud-based control systems and wireless connections are often vulnerable to delays and downtime. To provide the best possible reliability, we have developed unique control systems that use Edge Computing to control all charging functionality locally. This ensures that your facility always works, even when your internet connection or wireless signal drops out.
