Cable hangers: cable hangers are highly recommended for every charging station. These are sometimes delivered with the charging station as standard, or alternatively, they can be purchased as an accessory. The charging cable can be hung neatly on the cable hanger when not in use and prevents you, for instance, from accidentally driving over the cable while it is lying on the ground.
Load management for electric cars: many charging stations can be integrated with load management via an additional module. If the electrical connection is not sufficiently set up to be used by several charging stations simultaneously, and/or charge several cars, the charging power is reduced accordingly. If only one car is being charged at a charging station, it means that the entire charging power is available.
Access restriction: in instances where different people charge their electric cars at a charging station, it makes sense to have access restriction, in order to have control over who charges at the charging station. This additional function is relevant in public access areas, such as communal garages or hotel and business parking spaces. All in all, there are two variants: a key switch or an RFID card. We recommend the RIFD variant, as you can access several charging stations with an RFID card or keychain. This means you can use the same card to charge at home and at work. How does it work? The RFID card code is saved in the charging station. If the same RFID systems are supported (Mifare ISO-A), the RFID card, or the keychain which you use to open the office door every day, can be used to activate the RFID charging station. This reduces the number of cards, keychains etc.
