Aloxy Pulse is a revolutionary wireless sensor that remotely monitors the position of valves and taps in petrochemical installations.
Efficient charging for businesses
The EV Base is for companies that want to charge several electric cars of employees and visitors at the same time. There are two charging points per charging station with fixed charging cables for greater ease of use. Thanks to the integrated LED lighting, no additional lighting is required and safety on car parks is increased.
30% lower cost price than other charging stations
The sleek design, the simple housing made of high-quality ecological materials and the quick installation make the cost price of the EV Base up to 30% lower than that of similar charging poles. Companies can get the most out of their EV Base thanks to three payment options and the ability to charge different rates. Priority charging is available for those who need to get to an appointment quickly, with some cars being charged faster than others.
Thanks to the integrated Smappee energy management technology, it can charge cars intelligently. It offers autonomous overload protection, optimised self-consumption and real-time visibility into charging costs. Thanks to this integration, users also gain insight into all other energy flows within their building.
Perfect balance between design and intelligence
Smappee wants to transform the charging station from a necessity to an added value for each car park. "This is a great moment in the history of Smappee," says Stefan Grosjean, CEO and founder of Smappee.
