From 16 to 19 January 2020, the charging technology producer go-e will present the current highlights from its own product portfolio at Austria’s largest motor show. Visitors of the Vienna Autoshow will receive at the booth all information about the charging box go-eCharger HOME+ and matching accessories. The company will also report about the charging station go-eCharger PRO, which is about to be launched in the next months, and the go-eController, a device for smart energy management. The ONwheel, a motor for the electrical retrofitting of bicycles, can also be inspected on site. At the moment, charging technology from the Austrian manufacturer is mainly used by private consumers, on company parking lots of smaller companies or in car workshops. The next generation of go-e charging solutions also meets the more extensive requirements of parking garage operators and property managers, among others. The go-e booth at the Vienna Autoshow is located at Messe Wien within the E-Mobility Area in Hall C.
Always fully equipped – charging station go-eCharger HOME+
The go-eCharger HOME+ is an updatable high-end charging station for home or work. The device allows an individually adjustable charging power up to 22 kW and is Plug&Play capable. It can be attached and detached without an electrician, so the charger can also be used on the move with just a few simple steps. A WLAN module built in as standard and the open API enable intelligent additional functions such as photovoltaic surplus charging, connection to the electricity price exchange and static load balancing. The go-eCharger HOME+ charges electric cars of all manufacturers at almost any European power outlet (if necessary via adapter) and can be conveniently controlled via app. If required, charging can be enabled by RFID chip for authorized users only. Alternatively, the charger is also available with a permanently installed cable as a fixed charging station.
Professional charging on roofed and uncovered parking areas
The go-eCharger PRO is a charging station for all public and semi-public parking areas. In addition to the premium features of the go-eCharger HOME+, it offers further, partly optional features for use in professional environments. These include a customizable backend software, a calibrated MID counter, a 5.5 inch touch display and a permanently installed charging cable. The integrated ultrasonic sensor monitors the parking area and can send collected information via the standard OCPP. Charging processes can also be invoiced via the OCPP. In addition to WLAN, LAN or GSM are offered for data exchange.
go-eController: photovoltaic, load balancing and energy management for entire buildings
When one or more electric cars are being charged and other large electrical consumers such as tumble dryers, dishwashers or industrial machines are in operation at the same time, the mains connection can quickly reach its limits. Therefore go-e is developing a device for intelligent energy management. The go-eController ensures that the building connection is not overloaded by dynamically distributing the available power to associated charging stations and smart as well as conventional devices. Surplus solar power from the building’s own photovoltaic system can be used in a targeted manner, taking into account the price of electricity.
