This installation guide will walk you through the physical installation of the FLEXeCHARGE gateway. Several connection methods for internet access will also be covered here.
Use the tabs below to guide you through the installation of the gateway. Below this, you'll also see instructions on connecting power meters.

The internet connection for the gateway is provided via an ethernet cable connected to Port A.
Also, ensure that your local firewall allows connection to the following URLs (IP, Ports protocols.)
|FLEXeCHARGE - OCCP Proxy
|The configured OCPP backend (e.g. ChargeIQ)
|FLEXECHARGE - Backend Client
If your network connection is provided via a GSM Router, ensure there is no URL lock so the gateway can connect to the FLEXeCHARGE Platform - check this with your sim card provider. What is a Sim Lock?
Ready to connect charging stations
The gateway automatically recognizes charging stations if connected to the same local network via ethernet cables.
All charging stations connected to the load management system must be in the same LAN as the gateway.
Some charging stations require a root certificate to be installed. Refer to the list below:
Basic setup is complete. You can now continue with the configuration of the FLEXeCHARGE Platform or connect a power meter to the system.
