Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control

Heidelberg is launching the next generation of its charging technology for electric vehicles with integrated load management for simultaneous charging of multiple vehicles. The Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control can be linked to home energy management systems (HEMS) and is particularly attractive to business customers.

As the number of electric vehicle registrations continues to rise, there is also an increasing need to charge multiple vehicles in the same location simultaneously. This means a growing demand for charging equipment with a load management system that optimizes distribution of the available charging capacity between a number of electric vehicles. Heidelberg has responded by launching the new generation of its charging systems for hybrid and electric vehicles.

The Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control with integrated load management supports simultaneous charging of several vehicles, which provides an attractive charging solution for apartment buildings, multi-vehicle garages, and company/hotel parking lots. Based on dynamic local load management, a number of networked Wallboxes distribute the available charging current to as many as 16 hybrid or electric vehicles in an optimized, automatic process.

Some of the technical highlights of the Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control include dynamic local load management for two or more networked wallboxes, RS485 interface for external load management control, high-quality stainless steel front, adjustable nominal current, single-phase or three-phase power supply, integrated residual current detection, optional access control with a switching device, type 2 charging cable connector.


“Charging systems from Heidelberg have now firmly established themselves on the electric vehicle market. Many users, especially business customers, are also eagerly awaiting the company’s launch of its enhanced charging technology with integrated load management, which combines tried-and-tested Heidelberg quality with real value for money,” says Heidelberg chief executive officer Rainer Hundsdörfer.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
