Wallbox

The Wallbox function block is used to control a charging station for electric vehicles.

Charging a vehicle with the right power at the right time is essential for efficient energy management.

Therefore the function block comes with up to five customizable charging modes with which the charging power can be limited by individual logic.

With a dedicated input a charging session can be paused to avoid grid power peaks or equal.

Relative metering Active: The physical meter only sends partial quantities at intervals (relative), the block adds them up and uses them to form the meter reading.
Not active: The physical meter provides its own total meter reading (absolute), the function block only maps it.

Charging session

A charging session is the time between connecting and disconnecting a vehicle. The session can be paused / resumed with inputs Ec, Ls or App.

Charge log on output Lcl is set when starting / ending a sesion or if the userID changes during an active session.


Minimum and maximum Limits

Minimum and maximum limits define the allowed range of Output Tp (Target charging Limit).

Charging Limit can be configured for each mode via Dialog/App, or via logic in Inputs Lm1-5.

If the charging limit falls below the minumum charging limit, charging is paused and target charging limit is set to 0.
