Why have we decided to provide charging stations from KEBA, ABL and ICU?

 

We're constantly being asked why we offer charging stations from the manufacturers ABL, KEBA and ICU. What are our reasons? In the following, we would like to provide you with a brief explanation. First things first, we have been responding to the charging requirements of electric vehicles and the charging-behaviours of the owners of electric cars throughout Europe since 2009. As a neutral supplier, we want to make the best possible products available to you by making informed choices based on our own experience.

Why a charging station from KEBA?
With KEBA, we're putting our confidence in an established player in the market, whose sales figures prove that their products are already popular on the market. Furthermore, KEBA is the preferred cooperation partner for wallboxes from Daimler. Thanks to the Z.E. Ready certification, the KEBA wallbox is also suitable for use with all Renault vehicles. With the EVSE ICE Bucket Challenge hat KEBA has additionally proven that their charging stations also have the best weather-resistant properties. 
A further advantage is that the charging application is easy to configure. The charging application being used via the charging station can be easily adapted to the electricity installation which is supplying the station with power during use. We'll explain why this is so important: What you need to bear in mind when installing a charging station at home.

Why wallboxes from ABL Sursum?
ABL Sursum has also achieved impressive sales figures on the market and supplies the preferred charging stations for use with VW vehicles. All ABL wallboxes, up to the 11 kW version, are already fitted with an integrated FI Type A and with a sensor which detects any DC residual currents. This means that an additional FI circuit breaker is no longer required in the electricity installation. To find out why this is relevant, see our installation tips for charging stations for electric cars. There are also mobile versions of the charging station, which can be easily connected to industrial electric sockets. Thanks to the standard communication interfaces, it will also be possible to use the ABL charging station with additional products in the future.

Why wallboxes from ICU?
ICU is based in the Netherlands. This market is already an established forerunner in the electromobility market. The ICU charging stations are already differentiated within the market by means of their intelligent and smart charging solutions. These solutions do, however, come at a considerable cost. We therefore primarily target these solutions at commercial customers. Find out about the advantages which you can offer your employees by providing them with a charging station in the workplace, or the solutions you can provide to your customers here.

Three established manufacturers who are innovatively promoting electromobility
All three manufacturers are established on the market and will continue to promote electromobility in the long-term. This is particularly important in view of the future warranty requirements, software updates or supply of replacement parts.
With the first wave of electromobility-hype, a few years ago, numerous companies offering charging stations suddenly appeared on the market. After several years, however, these companies disappeared as quickly as they had appeared. From our point of view, it is therefore extremely important to work with a reliable and innovative partner who will remain on the market in the long-term.
