Installation only by specialists

For the purposes of correct installation and your own personal safety, installation and maintenance work should only be carried out by a qualified electrician who is aware of the standards and installation guidelines, and who assumes full responsibility for the installation.

Reduction factors must be taken into account

Or rather, possible reduction factors must be taken into account during the dimensioning of the installation. For example, the charging power may be affected by raised environmental temperatures, long charging periods or high bending radii.

Configurable charging power

With many charging stations the charging capacity can be adjusted physically or via an app. In this instance, you should bear in mind that the charging power of the charging station is in alignment with the electric installation.
