New test center for wall boxes at KEBA in Linz
Yesterday KEBA opened a new test center for large installations of wall boxes in the garage of the company’s headquarters in Linz (Austria). With the ever increasing spread of load management and the loading of electric vehicles in a master-slave-network (e.g. as a fleet solution in car parks or residential buildings), it is essential for KEBA to test features, simulate the behavior of its wall boxes in controlled charging processes and thus to permanently ensure product quality.
In the new test center, KEBA’s quality assurance team can thoroughly test up to 15 electric vehicles, replicate errors from field installations and gain valuable insights for ongoing and further developments. The lively exchange and close networking with the in-house service, product management and development department ensures the high quality of the wall boxes.
The highlights of our new wall box software 1.9.2
Customers who choose intelligent charging stations from KEBA will benefit from our new wall box software 1.9.2, which includes the following highlights: OCPP 1.6, control options via web interface as well as session protocol with data export options. Even after purchase, our customers can download this software update from our website and install it to keep their wall boxes up to date – quickly and easily.
The European energy industry met at E-world in Essen from 05 to 07 February 2019. In the "Smart Energy" area, which illustrates the importance of intelligent and efficient products, solutions and technologies, KEBA was represented with its own stand and was able to enthuse not only numerous customers but also an international delegation.
