Charge your electric car
Thanks to the smartfox energy manager, you have a choice between three charging options: excess charging, excess charging+ or fast charging mode. If you select excess charging, your electric car charges using exclusively excess energy from your photovoltaic system. In the excess charging+ mode, fixed charging intervals can also be set. In fast charging mode, your electric car is charged with the maximum charging power. To achieve this, the charging station draws extra electricity from the power grid.
In this sense, the SMARTFOX PRO has a distinct advantage over other energy management systems: As soon as the minimum switch-on power of your electric car is reached on a single phase, the charging process starts. Most electric cars start charging at 6 A (with the exception of the Renault ZOE, which starts at 10 A). If the output exceeds 6 A on all three phases, the charging process automatically restarts on three-phase charging. If the output decreases, phase cut-off also takes place completely automatically. The benefit for you: the charging process starts even at low power generation levels and you can start profiting from the optimisation of your own consumption at an even earlier stage.
