Professional Wallbox – Highlights as standard
The go-eCharger PRO* is a stationary charging station for public and semi-public parking areas with a charging capacity of up to 22 kW. The wallbox is designed for professional use in multi-storey car parks and underground car parks, but also plays out its standard premium range of functions on other parking areas. In the city, in hotels or in residential complexes: Both parking facility operators and the users themselves benefit from its user-friendliness and extended range of functions (compared to the go-eCharger HOMEfix).
During the development of the intelligent charging station, the emphasis was placed on ease of maintenance and user-friendliness. Even the basic version is equipped with a comprehensive range of features. Among the highlights are load balancing, several data interfaces, backend software, access control, PV connection or OCPP.

Comfort functions and meter for billing
A highlight of the PRO version is the modular design, which allows to simply plug the charging box onto the pre-installed wall installation box and secure it. This saves time and costs during maintenance.
In addition, the go-eCharger PRO can be equipped with a calibrated meter, 5.5 inch touch display and permanently installed charging cable. A standard ultrasonic sensor monitors the parking area and can send information via OCPP.
- Type 2For all vehicles with type 2 plug (optional type 1 on type 2). Also available with permanently attached type 2 cable. >
The Charger PRO is universally applicable for all electric car models approved on the European market. All electric vehicles in Europe are equipped with the type 2 plug (also called Mennekes plug). Older models, which are still provided with the type 1, can as well be charged by using type 1 to type 2 adapters or cables.
Type 2 forms the basis for CCS (Combined Charging System). The plug, also known as Combo Type 2, is the same as the Type 2, but with two additional contacts for fast DC charging.
The Charger PRO is also available with a permanently installed charging cable. The box serves to store the plug and the cable can be wrapped around the wall box.
- Up to 22 kWHigh charging capacity up to 22kW, freely adjustable via app, backend, quick select button or screen. >
With the Charger a high charging capacity of up to 22 kW can be achieved.
The desired charging power is freely selectable via the app, via backend or the button on the box. The current is adjustable in 1 ampere steps (from 6 to 32 amperes, which corresponds to one LED of the LED ring on the Charger).
With IP54 protection, the Charger is splash-proof 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.
- High performance plasticExtremely 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).
- Quick release systemInstallation of the wall unit by an electrician. Exchange of the charging unit without specialist knowledge. >
Die Wandinstallationsbox wird von einem Elektriker installiert. Daraufhin kann die Ladebox von jedem Betreiber selbst auf die Wandinstallationsbox aufgesteckt werden. Dadurch ist ein einfaches Wechseln der Ladebox (z. B. zu Servicezwecken) in Sekundenschnelle ohne Fachkenntnisse möglich.
Auch für den Einsatz an mehreren Wohnsitzen von Privatnutzern ist das Schnellwechselsystem eine feine Sache, da die Ladebox einfach mitgeführt und am jeweiligen Einsatzort verwendet werden kann (hierfür ist eine zweite Wandinstallationsbox notwendig).
The wall unit has to be installed by an electrician. The charging unit can then be attached to the wall unit by any operator. This makes it easy to change the charging unit (e.g. for service purposes) in a matter of seconds without specialist knowledge.
The quick release system is also a good idea for use at several residences, as the charging unit can simply be carried along and used at the respective location (a second wall unit is required for this).
- 5.5 inch touch screen monitorThe 5.5 inch touch screen monitor makes operation a pleasure and even enables advertisements to be displayed remotely. >
Unser Charger ist wahlweise mit hochauflösendem 5,5″ Display für detaillierte Informationen oder auch ohne Display erhältlich. Der Bildschirm ist auch bei Sonnenlicht sehr gut ablesbar.
Über das Display kann die Grundeinstellung der Box konfiguriert werden. Darüber hinaus erhält der Nutzer diverse Ladeinformationen. Im Business-Bereich können Ladetarif sowie Zugangsinformationen angezeigt werden. Die Anpassung der Anzeige ist grundsätzlich möglich. So können beispielsweise Werbeanzeigen in bester Qualität geschaltet werden.
Our Charger is optionally available with high resolution 5.5 inch display for detailed information or without display. The screen is easy to read even in sunlight.
The basic setting of the box can be configured via display. In addition, the user receives various charging information. Charging rates and access information can be displayed in the business area. The display can be adjusted in general. For example, advertisements can be placed in best quality.
- RFIDPersonalized access via most RFID-capable cards or RFID chips (also for accounting with OCPP). >
On the one hand, RFID is used for billing purposes. RFID is used for authorization and identification. With the help of OCPP, a billing system is established with backend services (providers of billing services such as “has to be”).
On the other hand, RFID is used for authorization. For example, for access control in shared car parks (residential building).
In addition, each charging box offers the possibility of creating and managing accounts. This allows you to authorize access and control, evaluate and export charging processes in private and business environments as CSV files. An RFID chip is included in delivery.
- LAN - WLAN - Hotspot - GSMSuitable interfaces for all common application areas are integrated for maximum flexibility. >
LAN/WLAN is standard and therefore of course integrated. GSM always offers the option when no data exchange is possible on the other interfaces.
- Backend softwareDetailed monitoring-software for your go-eCharger. Individually adaptable on request. >
The backend software is used to monitor the chargers in the entire area of a parking garage or parking area. Thus, different zones can also be regulated. All go-eCharger PRO can be universally controlled to optimize the charging process.
With several electric vehicles per car park or household it will become increasingly important that charging stations have load balancing. When charging several vehicles at the same time normal household and parking garage power connections can become overloaded.
go-eChargers avoid that problem with the load balancing function that allows them to communicate among each other. This ensures efficient and safe power distribution between a nearly unlimited amount of chargers. Additional advantage: Load balancing can protect against additional power connection costs.
When used in multi-storey car parks, load balancing is also suitable for assigning priorities (parking space prioritisation: classification/categorisation of parking spaces that charge quickly or less quickly).
- Double-Eco functionEcologically and economically sensible use of energy through connection to the electricity price exchange. >
Cost-effective charging when the price of electricity is lowest. This is possible with our partner aWATTar. The go-eCharger can dial into the electricity price exchange and see 24 hours in advance how high the electricity price will be the next day.
Since there is often a surplus of electricity, even negative electricity prices are possible. Then you earn money charging and the environment is happy too. So this function is not only economically but also ecologically interesting.
Prerequisite to benefit economically: The operator of the wallbox has to be an aWATTar customer.
Economically and ecologically elegant: Via 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).
But this function also pays off in environmental terms, similarly 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.
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 capableCan be integrated in networks for communication with other smart devices. Individually adaptable. >
The go-eCharger PRO can communicate with other smart devices/systems on the network and is individually adaptable.
The network capability also enables communication with the inverter of a photovoltaic system and load balancing.
The charger can use OCPP to communicate with backend services (providers of billing services such as “has to be”). The main purpose of this function is billing or error transfer.
OCPP = Open Charge Point Protocol.
- UpdateableFuture-proof due to continuous further development of the software. Updates via remote maintenance possible. >
Installing updates is an essential benefit of chargers connected to the Internet. The chargers do not have to be sent to the service for updates due to the update capability. Updates can be easily installed via the app.
OCPP also plays an important role for this application. This makes it possible, that an update can be installed at a certain time (e.g. outside operating hours, during the night).
- Calibrated electricity meterWith the optionally available electricity meter and OCPP accurate energy monitoring. >
A calibrated electricity meter makes it possible to sell electricity in accordance with the law in almost all European countries (except Germany – for this purpose we are working on a calibrated meter in accordance with German calibration law). At a later date, the operator of the charging station can read out all information/measurement results of charging processes done in the past using the go-eCharger PRO.
The calibrated electricity meter is only available for an additional charge.
- RCD protection module (DC fault protection)Integrated direct current fault detection (30 mA AC, 6 mA DC): Only a type A RCD is required on the building side, unless local regulations deviate from this. >
The type A RCD commonly used in buildings protects against sinusoidal and pulsating fault currents. However, due to the design of some on-board chargers in electric cars (e.g. ZOE), DC faults may also occur. Therefore, additional DC fault protection is required on the building side or in the charging station in the form of a type B RCD or RCD protection module. The RCD protection module integrated in the go-eCharger switches off the charging station in the event of a fault current generated by the car and thus ensures the highest possible level of safety. Therefore, only a type A RCD is required on the building side, unless local regulations deviate from this.
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.
The go-eCharger can specifically use surplus current from a photovoltaic installation via API or the go-eController*. With the go-eController, photovoltaic overproduction can be used not only for the go-eCharger, but also for other smart devices such as hot water boilers.
But even without the go-eController, the go-eCharger can communicate with the photovoltaic system via API, provided an inverter with API interface is available. The well documented API of the go-eCharger for communication between the Charger and the photovoltaic inverter can be downloaded here.
