All product highlights at a glance:
With the bidirectional DC wallbox in the 11 kW or 22 kW power classes, KOSTAL is developing a technology of the future with which electric vehicles can be used as mobile power storage units and thus, among other things, ensure greater power grid stability. In addition, bidirectional charging in conjunction with a solar system offers better self-consumption optimisation, a higher degree of self-sufficiency and enables load management in the form of peak shaving.
The KOSTAL AC Wallbox is maximally flexible and can be adapted to any requirement. Thanks to numerous features that can be individually combined, every customer requirement can be easily met. All uni- or bidirectional wallboxes as AC or DC variants are available in various degrees of customisation. The ready-made white-label solution with its own label and colour is available quickly and involves lower costs. In the case of a higher degree of individualisation, the lid incl. shape of the AC wallbox can be implemented according to customer requirements. In addition, KOSTAL Charging Solutions also offers completely customised wallbox solutions according to specifications.
With the powerful charging electronics, a total of twelve different electronics variants can be configured by combining different basic and communication electronics variants. The most important communication protocols and interfaces are already integrated. The charging electronics from KOSTAL offer intelligent wallbox functions such as authentication, charging and load management, energy management, billing and backend connection as well as human machine interfaces.
KOSTAL Solar Electric's AC wallbox ENECTOR, which has various charging modes and solar charging, has already successfully established itself on the market and can thus efficiently use the self-generated solar energy.
In the BDC research project (bidirectional charging) together with BMW, it was proven that a reliable overall system can be set up. In this way, PV self-consumption could be optimised by reducing grid consumption and PV feed-back, revenues could be achieved in intraday trading by exploiting the price differences between charging and discharging times, and electricity costs could be saved by capping peak loads and increasing full-load hours. KOSTAL has thus made an important contribution to the development of new technologies and systems to make electromobility more convenient, more cost-effective and lower in emissions for users.
