Needs analysis & concept

Electric mobility requires an efficient and well thought-out charging infrastructure. That’s why Webasto analyzes your demand jointly with you, securing peace of mind for future expansion should you wish to enlarge your electric fleet in future.

Our Control Center provides monitoring and billing options, remote maintenance, usage restrictions, and integration in a dynamic load management system, based on your employees’ charging behavior.

Together with you, Webasto creates a sustainable, individual and perfectly adapted concept for your sites and electric fleet.

 

 

Site analysis

In the site analysis, we examine how the concept we have created can be put into practice at your site.

This involves checking the connection situation and electrical infrastructure, for example. Here, we need to consider standards and regulations, identify the necessary permits, and flag up any potential risks or impediments.

 

 

Planning phase

Based on the information obtained from the site analysis, Webasto plans the implementation of your project in every detail. The analysis includes all the measures required for the problem-free installation of your charging infrastructure.

Webasto is your partner and provides specialist knowledge to assist you in expanding your building connection, planning civil engineering works, and obtaining the relevant permits from the grid operator.

When the planning phase is complete, you will receive a personalized quotation that includes the project plan for installing and commissioning your individual charging infrastructure.

FAQ

  • What is ISO 15118 (Plug & Charge)?

    ISO 15118 enables the automated and secure exchange of data between the vehicle and the charging infrastructure. When the charging cable is first plugged in, the vehicle sends the driver’s encrypted authorization data. If authorization is successful, charging begins automatically. Payment is completed automatically.

    Can I connect an external meter to the Webasto Live?

    Yes, you can store this in the configuration menu.

  • How are physical settings made on the station, such as a DIP switch?

    This is done on the local frontend, via the configuration interface.

    Can the pre-configuration be changed?

    Yes, the Webasto pre-configuration can be changed. However, this should be done on site by the installation partner.

    Do I have to do the configuration settings myself?

    All Webasto Live units are delivered pre-configured. Nevertheless, you will need to carry out some configuration settings via the user interface. 

  • How is the Wi-Fi interface used? 

    The quality of the Wi-Fi connection always depends greatly on location. Outdoors and in multi-story parking lots, we therefore recommend a GSM connection, as this is easiest to install and maintain. A LAN connection is recommended if network coverage is inadequate. Wi-Fi and a LAN connection make sense when there is no sufficient network coverage.

    Which energy management systems will Webasto Live probably also be compatible with in future? Is PV-optimized charging possible and is Webasto Live HEMS (home energy management system) ready?

    Webasto is in talks with several HEMS providers. An open communication standard via EEBus is planned. Connection to a PV system is also currently in planning.

  • How do I know if I have sufficient network coverage?

    Please check the signal strength at the planned installation location, by looking at the display on your mobile devices. A constant network connection via GSM must be available.

    What are my options if network coverage is insufficient?

    In general, you can use a LAN or Wi-Fi connection for the Webasto backend, in addition to GSM. This will require a separate installation, however.

  • Can I authenticate myself on the Webasto Live?

    The product package includes two RFID tokens with which you can authenticate yourself on the Webasto Live. You can also pick up your own RFID token or white label RFID tags via the configuration menu. 

  • Does the Webasto Live satisfy the requirements of the German Weights and Measures Law, and can you guarantee billing in accordance with this law?

    No, but Webasto are already working on a solution for you.

  • Can tariffs (per kWh) also be mapped with the backend? Is it also possible to bill the employee’s costs via an interface using the company’s own software? 

    You can select and configure your own tariff. However, it’s important to note that Webasto Live does not have meters that conform to the German Weights and Measures Law. External connection to your ERP system via an interface is possible. 

    How can the backend be accessed via the Webasto Live?

    There are three communication channels:

    • GSM: M2M eSIM with global network coverage, 2G, 3G, 4G (recommended by Webasto)
    • Wi-Fi
    • LAN

    What does it cost to use the backend?

    Backend services are in the cost of our packages. Please let us send you a quotation.

    Can a charge point be accessed in the backend without logging on?

    No, this isn’t possible.
