The smart wallbox for electric vehicles

The go-eCharger HOME+ is a wallbox for charging electric cars with high-end features. It is available in the variants 11 kW and 22 kW (maximum charging power). Due to the WLAN module included as standard, smart solutions such as PV surplus charging (via API), electricity price exchange connection (partner aWATTar) as well as load balancing are already integrated. The numerous safety functions include a built-in RCD protection module against DC current faults.

Easiest installation – can be used mobile

The charger is Plug & Play capable: Simply screw on the wall mounting plate, hang in the charger and connect it to a three-phase socket. Different adapters for various sockets are available compatible with the 11 kW go-eCharger HOME+ or the 22 kW version. Thanks to its simple installation, the wallbox can be used as a mobile charging station if required.

go-eCharger HOMEfix - Wallbox for charging at a fixed location.

go-eCharger HOMEfix – stationary wallbox

You only want to charge your electric car at a fixed location – e.g. at home or in a company? For this the go-eCharger HOMEfix is the right choice. Apart from mobility, it has the same intelligent features as the go-eCharger HOME+ and is also available in the versions 11 kW and 22 kW. The stationary charging station is ideal for all car drivers who only receive a subsidy for a permanently mounted wallbox.

Easy installation by an electrician

An electrician is required to install the go-eCharger HOMEfix. All he has to do is connecting the charging station to any existing junction box (if applicable) – a time and cost saving advantage compared to other wall charging stations for electric cars.

The go-eCharger can use surplus electricity to charge an electric car via a photovoltaic connection.

Can be used anywhere – charge at any socket

With the go-eCharger HOME+ it is possible to charge anywhere where alternating and three-phase current is available (provided the appropriate adapter is used). Thanks to the built-in type 2 socket, the wallbox is ultra compact, as it uses any standard type 2 cable – goodbye to unnecessary cable clutter.

Absolutely compatible – for every electric car

Every go-eCharger of the HOME series charges all electric cars approved for the European market via the type 2 socket: e.g. Renault Zoe, Mercedes-Benz EQC, Nissan Leaf, Hyundai Ioniq, Kia Niro, eGolf, BMW i3, all Tesla vehicles, of course also Model 3. You only need one charging station and can charge any electric car model of all car manufacturers.

Highlights

  • Type 2
    Suitable for all vehicles with type 2, as well as type 1 plugs via adapters and special cables. >

    The go-eCharger can be used universally. It charges every electric car approved for Europe.

    All new electric vehicles are equipped with a type 2 plug (also called Mennekes plug). Older vehicles with type 1 plugs can also be charged with the go-eCharger by using a type 1 to type 2 adapter or cable.

    Type 2 forms the basis for CCS (Combined Charging System). The plug is also known under the name Combo Type 2. It has two additional contacts for fast DC charging.

  • Up to 11/22 kW*
    High charging capacity up to 11/22 kW*, freely adjustable via App or quick select button. >

    With the go-eCharger a high charging capacity of up to 11 or 22 kW* can be achieved. The desired charging power can be selected via the app or the button on the box. Any adjustment between 6 and 16/32 amperes* is possible. One LED of the LED ring on the charger corresponds to 1 ampere each.

    *maximum charging power depends on the go-eCharger variant

  • Mobile
    The charger you can take with you thanks to the quick-release function. (only go-eCharger HOME+). >

    Charge your electric car at home and on the road: The included quick release wall unit included in the scope of delivery makes it possible. At home, the charging unit is conveniently attached to the wall mount. The go-eCharger can be removed in one easy step. This turns it into a mobile charger for any electric car.

  • Adapter
    Various adapters for every situation: single-phase charging, multi-phase charging and charging at the household socket. >

    The go-e adapters enable to charge an electric vehicle with the go-eCharger HOME+ at any socket. Whether at home at the 16 A three-phase socket, in the harbour and on the camping site at CEE blue 16 A or when visiting relatives at a 16 A shockproof socket. When using a suitable original go-e adapter with the 22 kW go-eCharger HOME+ the charging current is automatically reduced to 16 A. When using a go-e adapter, the charging current is automatically reduced. This prevents the socket from beeing overloaded. The go-eCharger HOME+ 11 kW always charges with a maximum of 16 A.

    Note: Not all household sockets are suitable for a charging current of 16 A. In case of doubt, we recommend reducing the charging power manually to 10 A.

    Please note: Different adapter versions are required for the 11 kW or 22 kW version of the go-eCharger HOME+.

  • Plug & Play
    Easiest installation even without an electrician. For all common sockets in Europe. (only go-eCharger HOME+). >

    The go-eCharger HOME+ can be connected directly to an existing CEE red 16 A (HOME+ 11 kW) or CEE red 32 A (HOME+ 22 kW) socket. Using appropriate adapters, it can also be connected to almost all other common sockets in the EU.

  • Permanently installed
    Stationary charging station for the fixed installation. (only go-eCharger HOMEfix). >

    Once assembled, the go-eCharger HOMEfix has its durable home. The installation has to be done by an electrician. This charging solution is ideal to get subsidys for e-chargers intended exclusively for stationary mounting.

  • High performance plastic
    Extremely shock- and UV-resistant material made of high-quality plastic alloy. >

    The high-performance plastic ASA used for our Chargers is extremely break-proof even under extreme weather conditions (hail, heat, cold).
    The plastic used is also light-resistant, so the colour is retained for many years (does not fade/yellow).

  • RFID
    Personalized access via most RFID-capable cards (e.g. EC card) or RFID chips. 1 chip included in delivery. >

    The RFID function can be used to personalize access to the charging station. This means that no one can start a charging process without authorisation. In addition, all charging processes can be stored on up to 10 accounts. RFID allows to authorise access to charges, to control them, evaluate and export them as a CSV file.

  • WLAN & Hotspot
    Connection via Internet (integration into home network) or directly via hotspot. >

    The communication interfaces provide many additional benefits. If you wish, you can connect the go-eCharger to the Internet (integration into an existing network or directly via hotspot) and benefit from further functions (e.g. connection to the electricity price exchange, various timer settings via app).

  • App for Android & IOS
    Free App for detailed settings and control of your go-eCharger (alternatively also via Web-Browser). >

    The free app offers a lot of added value. You can use the app to check the charged kWh, regulate the current, configure the setting button on the charging unit or start charging. If you prefer the PC: Various settings at app.go-e.co can also be made via the web browser.

  • Charging control
    Information about charging current, export of kWh meter, adapter detection and type 2 cable detection. >

    All information about the charging process are available via app. Of course you can also stop charging, set charging currents and much more.

  • Load balancing
    Distributes the current load when charging several vehicles (expandable with go-eController*). >

    With several charging stations per household (per grid connection), load balancing will be indispensable in the future. When charging several electric vehicles at the same time, normal household connections overload.

    With the help of load balancing, the charging boxes communicate with each other and with the go-eController*, which monitors the building load. This ensures efficient and safe power distribution.

  • Double-Eco function
    Obtain energy ecologically and economically sensible via electricity exchange prices (partner aWATTar). >

    Cost-effective charging when the price of electricity is lowest. We make this possible with our partner aWATTar. With this function, the go-eCharger can dial into the electricity price exchange and sees 24 hours in advance how high the electricity price will be the next day.

    As there is an electricity surplus at certain times of the day (e.g. in the early morning hours), even negative electricity prices are possible. This ensures efficient and ecological use of electricity-surplus, and therefore contributes to reducing the impact we people have on our environment. On the same time, it allows you to reduce your electricity bill.

    Prerequisite to benefit economically: The end consumer must be an aWATTar customer.

  • Timer
    Pre-setting of charging time with start and stop, weekday and time. >

    Economically and ecologically elegant: Via the timer it is possible to define the start time for charging. This is optimal, for example, for charging at night or in the early hours of the morning (savings potential through night tariffs).

    This function also pays off for the environment, similar to the Double-Eco function. By not charging at peak times, voltage peaks can be reduced and the excess current can be used at night.

  • Personalized
    RFID card management with user accounts including consumption overview. >

    The go-eCharger app allows you to customize various settings. For example, the colors of the Charger’s LEDs. Bright or colorful – just as you like. The locking variant of the box can also be configured according to personal requirements.

    In addition, each RFID card can be assigned to a personal account, allowing the charged current to be read for each card/user.

  • Smart Home capable
    Can be integrated in networks for communication with other smart devices. >

    The go-eCharger can communicate with other smart devices/systems in the network and is individually adaptable.  If the go-e Charger is connected to the WIFI, the charging station can be conveniently controlled via App. This is particularly interesting for photovoltaic connections and load balancing. Language assistants such as Alexa from Amazon or Siri from Apple can soon be used, as well as the go-eController*.

    *additional product – under development

  • Updatable
    Constant improvement and extensions of functions. Updates possible with the app. >

    Installing updates is a major advantage of chargers connected to the Internet. The go-eCharger does not have to be sent to the service to install updates. Updates are easy to initialize via the app.

  • RCD protection module with DC detection
    The RCD protection module for DC detection avoids the expensive RCD type B installation at home. >

    The RCD protects against electric shocks. To ensure that the RCD installed in the house continues to provide reliable protection even when the charging unit is used, an additional RCD or RCD protection module for DC faults (type B) must be installed in the house or Charger. This is necessary in case vehicles generate residual current. Should a fault current occur, the RCD protection module switches off the charging unit and thus ensures the highest possible level of safety.

  • Secure
    Detailed safety functions provide protection against damage. >

    The go-eCharger HOME+ is first and foremost a stationary charging station, but is also ideal for use on the go. The go-eCharger offers safety in case of incorrectly installed sockets. If a phase (neutral conductor or earthing) is not properly connected, the system switches off and thus prevents damage to the vehicle.

  • Switchable grounding monitoring
    Also works with networks where no grounding can be detected, like e.g. in Norway. >

    The power grid is not grounded everywhere. Especially in areas with high safety requirements or in areas of permafrost soils, isolating transformers are used which eliminate the risk of electric shock at the end devices. So that the go-eCharger also functions in these regions, the earth detection can be deactivated.

  • IP54
    Protection against dirt and water, suitable for permanent outdoor use. >

    With protection class IP54, the Charger is suitable for permanent outdoor operation. The charger is protected against splashing water and can withstand heavy rainfall.

    The IP (International Protection) defines the protection of electrical equipment for different environmental conditions. For example, the ingress of foreign bodies (such as dust) and water.

  • Theft-proof
    Mechanical cable lock with car and charging box until released by the owner. >

    During the charging process, the charger is locked with the charging cable and permanently connected to the car until the plug is removed from the vehicle. The go-eCharger HOME+ is thus well protected from thieves when on the road. To protect the mobile wallbox from theft, a security clip is included to secure the cable (go-eCharger HOME+ only). This is screwed to the wall and locked with a lock.

  • Photovoltaics
    Uses surplus solar power for charging (API-connection or go-eController* necessary). >

    The go-eCharger can specifically use surplus current from a photovoltaic installation via API (an open software interface) or the go-eController*.

    With the go-eController*, photovoltaic surplus can be used not only for the go-eCharger, but also for other smart or conventional devices such as hot water boilers. But even without the go-eController*, the go-eCharger can communicate with the photovoltaic system using API, if an inverter is available. The well documented API of the charging box for communication between the charging box and the photovoltaic inverter can be downloaded here.

    *additional product – under development

  • OCPP
    Standardized exchange of data for billing and monitoring. >

    The charger will soon be able to communicate with backend services (providers of billing services such as “has to be”) via OCPP. The main purpose of this function is for billing or error transmission.

    OCPP = Open Charge Point Protocol.

  • API
    Open interface for combination with devices from other manufacturers. >

    With the go-eCharger you get a system with an open interface (API). This is especially interesting if you want to connect your own applications. For example a photovoltaic system. The open interface ensures that other manufacturers can combine their devices with the go-eCharger.
