Generally switches loading on and off.
Determines which values are selected after start-up in the absence of a charge manager.
|Charging Enabled||Enable charging without OCPP/Modbus device|
|Limit Current||Here you set the maximum charging current|
|Cable override||16000 if you do not want a different setting.|
You should always leave the DC sensor / residual current sensor switched active, unless you are operating the cFos EVSE on a type B residual current circuit breaker. Without a residual current circuit breaker, operation without a DC sensor is not permitted!
Here you activate and configure the OCPP client of the cFos Charging Controller. The OCPP client allows the cFos Charging Controllers to operate on an OCPP-enabled backend for the following purposes:
|ID||Your charge point ID|
|Server||Address / URL of the backend|
|Meter Type||You can pin one of the meters supported by Charging Manager to the OCPP client and transmit these meter values via OCPP (e.g. for billing purposes)|
|Address / ID||As in the meter configuration dialogue the address and slave ID of the meter|
You can also allow remote control of the cFos EVSE via Modbus.
|Slave ID||Use this to configure the Modbus slave ID (1 by default)|
|TCP Port/COM settings||Here you set either the TCP port for Modbus TCP or the COM port parameters for Modbus RTU (i.e. if the cFos EVSE is to be controlled via the RS 485 two-wire interface), e.g. COM1,19200,8,n,1|
You can connect an S0 meter to the two S0 inputs of the cFos Charging Controller. This is then available as a Modbus device. As with "Modbus EVSE", you can define for the counters to which slave ID the counter(s) listen and which TCP port or COM port settings apply.
An S0 meter sends a certain number of pulses per measured kWh. You set this under "Pulses/kWh". The cFos Charging Controller can also simulate current and voltage values if certain readout software requires this. You can set the phase voltage and specify the phases to which the pulses refer.
The cFos EVSE speaks TCP/IP by default and has a built-in RS 485 interface. It makes sense to map Modbus TCP to Modbus RTU (RS 485). This allows you to access devices connected to the RS 485 interface via WLAN and Modbus TCP.
|enabled||Enable and disable this functionality|
|TCP Port||The port under which the Modbus TCP proxy is accessible|
|COM Settings||Settings of the serial port|
You can also use the cFos EVSE as a WLAN access point. Please do not expect great transmission rates. However, you can use it to establish a WLAN connection to your car or other EVSEs.
The name of the base station, the WLAN password and the channel can be set.
Here you can and should log your cFos EVSE into your home network, e.g. into your WLAN-enabled Internet router. To do this, select the appropriate name of the base station and the WLAN password. You can also set the host name with which the Power Brain registers with DHCP (and is therefore visible in the home network), as well as a DNS server. Since the cFos EVSE does not have its own clock, you should set a time server to synchronise the time.
With "Internet Hotspot" you activate the forwarding of IP packets from the WLAN access point to your Internet router, i.e. you make the WLAN hotspot Internet-capable.
Here you can set the time of the cFos Charging Controller. Pay attention to the correct time zone. In Germany this is UTC+1 Western Europe.
Here you can check for new versions and download a firmware update. Only if the downloaded firmware contains the correct signature, it will be installed.
|Restart||Use this button to restart the cFos Charging Controller|
|Model||The model of the hardware, e.g. cFos EVSE 1.0|
|Serial no.||The serial number of your hardware, e.g. W00-001Z|
|You can back up your configuration data in the cFos Charging Controller to a separate backup area, then restore it later using this copy|
