Software updates for wallboxes are an integral part of the product. They ensure that buyers become long-time happy users and that there is no need, even years later, for replacing the installed charging station. These continuous improvements make our wallboxes fit for the future – and are free of charge. The latest software – version 1.13 – brings several improvements for all KeContact P30 x-series charging stations.
Monthly overview of charging sessions via email
The updated software automatically provides P30 x-series users with monthly email statements about the charging sessions of their wallboxes as well as those of the connected c-series wallboxes. The statements are automatically sent monthly by e-mail in the form of a universally usable PDF file. Hence, manual information retrieval is a thing of the past. It makes billing processes or the compilation of statistics a virtual breeze.
RFID now with username option
From now on, different users can be assigned individual names. Thus far, only the serial number on a person’s RFID card has hinted at the user’s identity, but users can now choose their name to provide a better overview in analysis.
Function to effectively avoid unbalanced load
An unbalanced load is when the phases in a three-phase power system are loaded unevenly. A high unbalanced load leads to increased losses and puts a strain on the electricity grid. This phenomenon can occur with electric vehicles that can only charge single-phase or two-phase. These include plug-in hybrids, among others. The unbalanced load limit in Germany is 4.6 kW (230 V at 20 A). With our latest software update 1.13 the built-in safety mechanism now optionally extends to the entire charging network of master (x-series) and client wallboxes (c-series).
Updates are that simple
There are three ways to get your KEBA KeContact P30 x-series software up to date: The quickest way is through the web interface. The System menu option takes you to the Software Update page, where you can choose the latest software version. Alternatively, you can also do a remote update via the OCPP backend and an FTP link. Additionally, you can update your wallbox directly with a USB flash drive. All options are automated, which means no special knowledge is required. Find detailed instructions, including the required links and files for all update options, here.
Charging at home or publicly?
A car with a combustion engine is refueled publicly at a service station. Why not do the same with an electric vehicle? After all, the public charging network has a large number of charging stations and gone are the days when people were forced to charge at home because the network had not been sufficiently developed. Four facts speak in favor of charging at home nonetheless.
That was the IAA 2019: Our photo gallery
The IAA 2019 was dedicated to solutions for tomorrow’s mobility and in particular to the topic of electro mobility. KEBA presented its charging solutions for an electric and emission-free future. Visitors could experience the intelligent wall boxes – of which more than 150,000 have already been sold worldwide – first hand and exchange ideas with our electro mobility experts. We would like to express our sincere thanks for the enormous interest and the positive response! Here you can view the photo gallery with all of our trade fair impressions!
Charging at home – What’s important
Those who want to charge their cars not only at work or at public charging stations, but also at home, have to consider a number of aspects. Here are compact answers to the six most important questions, from the approval and installation of a wallbox to charging speed and electricity costs.
