More efficiency, greater safety, lower costs – thanks to load management
In order not to put too much strain on the building’s electrics, its consumers must be monitored and regulated. This prevents power outages through overload. The term for this is load management. In the specific case of charging infrastructure management – electric vehicles and charging stations are big electricity consumers by nature – we speak of charging management. The smarter its design, the less noticeable the control interventions in the form of throttled charging capacity – even if a building has a relatively low connected load.
KeContact M20 – the central control unit
Connected to an external meter, the KeContact M20 charging management controller constantly monitors a building’s primary electricity requirement. It releases the additionally available power to the charging stations and the electric vehicles. This ensures the optimal use of the existing building electrics for charging, and the connected load of a new building can be configured to be lower. This reduces the use of resources to the essentials, cuts expenses, and is sustainable.
- It allows charging stations to be grouped into up to 15 clusters and enables the configuration of corresponding load limits in accordance with the electrics (e.g. sub-distributors in a multi-storey garage).
- Supports static and dynamic load management.
- All charging sessions are stored locally for three months.
