Barcelona/Daun-Nerdlen, 30.08.2019

Charging control at your fingertips

With the eNext, the charging station specialist Circontrol launches a new Bluetooth-enabled wall charger for home users. The device offers a number of features that can be accessed through the Circontrol Hi Charger smartphone app. The eNext is available as a three-phase version with 22kW and can be supplied as Type 2 socket only or in a version with a 5m tethered cable and cable holder.

This charging station has a number of unique Bluetooth related features such as remote configuration or presence recognition to automatically unlock the charging station via smartphone. With this function, the charging station automatically starts the charging process as soon as the authorized user is detected via Bluetooth nearby and the charging cable has been connected to the vehicle. This function is useful in situations where the charging station is located in an area that could be accessible to other drivers (such as an underground car park in an apartment building). Similarly, the eNext can be started by remote start function via an external ON / OFF signal. In order to adapt charging to time energy tariffs or to make better use of the existing power output, the eNext can also be individually programmed for interval charging.
