As the name suggests the Gateway Connect acts as the link between charing infrastructure, other energy assets (power meters, solar arrays, etc.) and the FLEXeCHARGE Platform. The Gateway is a small computer with an integrated LTE Router that runs the FLEXeCHARGE load management for the infrastructure and serves as the basis for remote configuration management and monitoring.
Connection to all energy assets is established via a local network where the Gateway either serves as a DCHP host or client. See architecture overview for more inforamtion.
Input Voltage: 8V ... 30V DC
Maximum power: max. 25 watts
Operating temperature: -25 bis +70 °C
Weight: ca. 160 g
Refer to the specsheet for information on inpout voltage, operating temperature and more.
Use the guides below to install the Gateway hassle free. It is strongly recommended to read, understand and choose the correct the System architecture as this will influence the steps that follow.
|1. Decide on System architecture
|The main system architecture is explained and the two main deploment types are described. It is important to understand the differences as this will influence later steps for installation.
|2. Follow installation guide
|The physical installation of the Gateway is covered, including connection of a powersupply, switch, charging stations, and internet access.
|3. Configuration of the Gateway
|In some cases the Gateway must be configured before it can be used. This guide will take you through these steps
|4. FLEXeCHARGE Platform Setup
|Now that the Gateway Connect is up and running the FLEXeCHARGE Platform must be configured, charging stations connected to it and a CPMS must be setup.
|5. Clustering and Basic Load Management Setup
|Clustgring is an important part of load management and clusters must be setup properly.
|7. Priortization of Charge Points
|Charge points can be assigned a priority to make charging more effective. Follow this guide for more.
|8. Adaptive Charging Setup
|Aaptive charging detects if an EV has finished charging. After that, the system will allocate no more charge current to that EV so that other EVs can charge with more charge current.
|9. Unbalanced Load Prevention Setup
|Unbalanced Load Prevention is a safety feature.
|Extra. Advanced_Configuration Gateway Connect
|Some networks require advanced setup. The options can be found here.
