Gilching – June 2, 2022 – Electromobility is on the way, bringing with it a multitude of demands for charging at home, at work and on the road. Top 100 automotive supplier Webasto offers simple and intelligent charging solutions for everyday use – for private vehicles and company cars, individual home parking spaces and large company parking lots.
Alongside the Webasto Pure, which offers easy and safe “plug & play” charging, and the Webasto Next, with its smart Webasto Charge Connect backend, the Webasto Unite wallbox will also be available from summer 2022. All Webasto charging stations come with a Type 2 plug, are scalable up to a charging capacity of 22 kW, and have integrated DC residual current protection. Power grid operators can ensure grid stability via a ripple control receiver. The Webasto Pure and Webasto Next have a permanently attached cable of either 4.5 or 7 meters in length, while the Webasto Unite has a charging socket with shutter.
The Webasto Next and Webasto Unite are permanently online thanks to GDPR-compliant realtime transmission of charging data to the Webasto Charge Connect backend system. The wallbox controller and charging-related information are accessible via an internet portal as well as via an app. Both charging stations offer an interface to various energy management systems (EMS) via Modbus TCP, which means that PV-optimized charging is also possible. Local load management prevents peak loads and grid overloads. It is available for both of the smart wallboxes operating in stand-alone mode, and also for the Webasto Unite operating in cluster mode with up to 32 charging points. The Webasto Unite also conforms to the Measurement Instruments Directive (MID). Conformity with calibration regulations (German: Eichrecht) will follow in the fall of 2022, opening up the option of also deploying the Webasto Unite in public areas of Germany.
Also on display at the exhibition will be Webasto Go, the new mobile charging solution available from fall 2022. Webasto Go is the ideal travel companion, as its new six-meter charging cable features interchangeable shockproof and industrial plugs. It delivers up to 7.3 kW of charging power.
The Webasto Pure and Webasto Next start at 499 and 799 euro respectively, while the Webasto Unite is available from 1,299 euro and the Webasto GO from 499 euro. All quoted prices are recommended retail prices (RRP).
On Thursday, June 23, 2022, at 1:30 p.m., Dr. Karl Kolmsee, Head of Product Portfolio Management Energy Systems, will give a presentation at the show entitled “CO2 monitoring while charging” at the Infrastructure Forum in Hall 4.
