What should be considered when installing a wallbox?
Installation only by specialists
For proper installation and your safety, installation, assembly and maintenance work may only be carried out by a qualified electrician who knows the standards and installation regulations and is responsible for the complete installation.
In principle, any reduction factors must be taken into account when designing the installation. For example, the charging performance may be affected by increased ambient temperatures, long cable lengths or high bending radii.
Configurable charging power
With many charging stations, the charging power can be adjusted physically or via an app. The charging power of the charging station must be matched to the electrical installation. You can find out more about charging power here.
