3.7.34.1.53.0.54.2.63.8.53.8.5

Improvements and new functionalities:

  • Dynamic Power Sharing Available for Wallbox PRO licensed customers
    • The Dynamic Power Sharing (DPS) monitors a building’s demand and compares it against its maximum allowable value. When it is lower than the maximum, it can supply all the remaining available power to reach the maximum to the charging station. Contrarily, if the building’s demand is equal or greater than its maximum permitted value, no power will be supplied to the charging station. Just by taking advantage of periods where there is low demand from the building side, the charging station’s demand can be satisfied without having to increase the installation’s overall power.
    • To accomplish this energy distribution system, the Power Boost and Power Sharing functionalities have been merged to create the Dynamic Power Sharing.
    • All Wallbox chargers can be installed in this configuration. However, a PULSAR can never be the MASTER of the network.
