Dec 19, 2018 | eMobility, News
Circontrol’s new range includes Presenence Recoginition through Bluetooth that allows to activate the load with the smartphone
Circontrol has renewed its WallBox range with eNext, a new EV charger series designed for domestic, private and semi-public sector and which has considered both his design and the simplification of the charging process. This new charger is perfect for homes, condominiums, workplaces and carparks. With this new WallBox eNext series, Circontrol has taken a bet for design. With the spread of e-mobility EV chargers will be more present in our environment, from homes to offices or shopping malls. That’s why charging external look is getting even more important. Curved lines along with the combination of black piano and white matt make eNext the most elegant wallbox of those designed by Circontrol so far and its proportions and size make it the right product for any wall. eNext WallBox series has also been designed to simplify the charging process as much as possible. One of its most outstanding and innovative features is Presence Recognition that works through the smartphone’s Bluetooth. This technology allows the user to activate the load without interacting with the charger, the charge starts when the approved user is detected by Bluetooth and the cable is connected to the car.
In addition to Presence Recognition it includes other features that make the charging process easier. Among these features there’s an APP to control and configure the eNext, activate the charge remotely, programme it to accommodate the charging session to the energy hourly rates and a frontal LED bar that informs the user about the charging and charger status. Besides making it user-friendly, robustness and security have been taken into account. The housing is made of ABS, a robust and UV resistant material that protects the charger of mechanical stress and sever environment conditions. It also includes internal electrical protections.
Three different models to cover all market needs
This December Circontrol is launching the basic model of the eNext range, but this series will be extended on the following months with two superior models. With these different models with different features Circontrol wants to create a product range that adapts to the needs of different users. During the following months Circontrol will launch eNextPro and eNext Elite which are designed for fleets, car parks and communities of residents thanks to he communications that allow them to work in multipoint and master-slave setups. eNext Pro can be configured as a slave in multipoint facilities. Furthermore, user management is made easy with an RFID reader and a MID meter to manage the charge. eNext Elite is the most advanced model in the range. In terms of communications, it features OCPP 1.6 and WiFi, as well as an Ethernet connector for multipoint and master-slave setups. In addition to this, its display makes it the best option for the most demanding homes that, although they do not need any type of multipoint or Master-Slave connection, they want a higher gamma charger.

WallBox eNext will be available next January, but during the autumn has been showcased in international fair trades with a great reception. Circontrol has presented this new series at his booth at eMove360º in Munich last October and Circutor has shown it at Matelec last November where it won the prize for electrical installation.
