Easee Charge is a charging system that is inovative and specially developed for neighborhoods, apartment complexes, commercial building, real estate projects, and parking facilities. The charging smart station is small, lightweight- yet powerful as it supports up to 22kW. The charging box is versatile and supports amperages between 6-32A as well as all power grids (IT, 230V/1+3-fase, TT og TN 400V). The charging box is equipped with one Type 2 connector/outlet so that rechargable vehicles can charge from the charging station with the correct charging cable.
This patented 3- part installation- with its unique back plate, charge berry (the charging unit itself), and front cover, makes installation extremely easy and quick. It's a breeze to connect one or more charging staions. The electrician, first, installs the back plate onto the wall, connects the power conductors, and then "clicks" the charge berry/ charging unit in place on the back plate. This saves- not only the electrician's time and frustration, but your own money. This unique installation makes it possible for you to install the charging unit and exchange it afterwords if, contrary to conjecture, it were to become defective. This minimizes downtime and allows you to, again, continue charging as normal.
Plug & Play — Simple but brilliant
Easee Charge's unique installation makes it possible to prepare all places for connection at a later time. Residents who do not have the need to charge now can prepare their own parking spaces at a lower cost and later buy the charging unit/ charge berry when the need arises. Instructed personell can simply install this device in 15 seconds. Refer to the 4 steps in the animation below.
This requires that the back plate is fully connected and programmed.
The charging points on a back plate are delivered with the blind cover affixed with information about where the charging unit can be ordered.
The charging unit and front cover in the desired color will be sent by post.
The blind cover/ cover is clipped off from the back plate and the charging unit is pushed (clicked) onto the back plate. The front cover is then clicked on.
- No need for an electrician or tools
- Quick, safe and simple
Dynamic Load Balancing and Phase Balancing
The Easee Charge charging system makes full use of the available electrical capacity with dynamic phase and load balancing across all charging stations. This is to ensure you always get maximum charging. Load balancing supports up to 101 units per course without the need for additional infrastructure and will work without the need for internet access. Load and phase balancing optimalizes available effect for charging and:
- Monitors the charging systems available charging current
- Ensures that the available charging current is distributed and used equally
- Does not overload the courses or set limit values
- Balances the effect and the charging stations phases
Load and phase balancing happens with the help of proprietary wireless technology which does not require extra infrastructure (cabling), connection to the cloud or internet.
Internet Access — 4G / LTE
All Easee charging stations are connected to the internet via built-in e-SIM on 4G/LTE as long as there is telephone coverage. If you order Easee Charge now, you will recieve the 4G subscription including the life of the charging station at no extra cost. That means you don't have to worry about WiFi coverage and additional infrastructure costs.
Safe Investing — 5 years warranty
Easee Charge has a 5 year warranty and applies from the day it is installed. In this way, you as a customer, can rest assured that the product is good quality and will hold for many years to come.
Administration, Invoicing and Access Controll — Easee Cloud
As administrator / owner of Easee Cloud, you can easily;
The charging station has built-in electronic earth fault protection (AC 30mA and DC-RCM 6mA) which ensures detection of direct current faults and earth faults. This means that you do not need earth fault protection type B in the fuse box, but only an ordinary earth fault circuit breaker type A. The built-in protection is automatically reset every time the charging cable is disconnected from the charging station. This reduces downtime and the need for support and maintenance. At the same time, the charging station detects overvoltage and has integrated fuses (3x32A type C). Temperature sensor and electronic monitoring of the current flow in the charging station ensure safe charging, and will lower the charging current if it detects heat (>50°C). It will also automatically notify and interrupt charging if something goes wrong. The charging station restarts automatically in the event of a power failure.
You can activate access control on the charging system so that charging must be activated through an NFC/RFID card, chip or the Easee app. This prevents unauthorized persons from charging at your charging station(s).
Measurements of Power Consumption
The built-in power meter in each charging station gives you full control and an overview of power consumption via the app or the Easee cloud cloud service. You can easily create consumption reports for each user or charging station. This means that you can easily have several users at one charging station and still distribute the electricity costs fairly.
Our payment solution provides worry-free operation of the charging system. All operating costs are covered by the users who receive electricity at the net price selected by the plant owner.
We make it easy for you as a customer and handle everything and you will not have any work related to operation and administration. You don't even have to pay the electricity bill. All inquiries from current and future users are addressed directly to us:
- Order a charging chip
- Order a charging unit/ charge berry
- Billing Questions
This is how it works
|Regular users||Visitors and drop-in users|
Start charging via an RFID tag and each user receives one bill per month for consumption, which can be paid with eFaktura or Vipps.
Pay easily with a bank card via the website that is affixed to the charging station.
The cost of the payment solution is covered by the users themselves. 15 percent of the charging balance is added to the invoice. It includes all costs related to the payment solution, operation and support of the charging facility.
Earn Money on the Facility
The plant owner decides the price of charging himself. For example, employees can charge at cost price, while customers and visitors pay a fixed price that is higher than the cost price for the electricity. This way you can make money at the charging station.
Pricing models that can be used are:
- Price per kWt — e.g. 3 kroner per kWh
- Price per time unit — e.g. 20 kroner per time
- Price for parking after charging — e.g. 50 kroner per time (fixed price per time)
- Price for parking after charging- e.g. NOK 10 per hour. Used in combination with one of the three models above to encourage car owners not to occupy a charging space longer than necessary
The charging station comes with an app that makes it easy to keep track of consumption, lock and unlock the charging cable, and schedule charging. More functions will comes over time so that you always have full control over your Easee charging station.
The charging system and charging station are smart and ready for future challenges as software updates are included and are done over the internet (WiFi/4G). The hardware is developed and manufactured in Norway, so you can be sure of the quality. The charging station is prepared for 2-way communication between the charging station and car. This enables even more useful functions when activated.
Freedom of Choice
The charging station is delivered in five different colors so that you have the freedom to choose whether the charging box should match the car, the wall or neither.
According to regulations on electrical equipment §21, we are obliged to inform our customers that all electrical equipment intended to be part of a fixed electrical installation can only be installed by an authorized and registered installation company installasjonsvirksomhet.

Questions and Answers
How do I gain access to the WiFi interface?
1) Connect your phone to the charging robot's shared WiFi network. If the phone does not find shared WiFi networks, you must hold down the touch button for 5 seconds. Turn off and on the power of the charging robot to the installation manual, if the WiFi network for installation is unavailable.
2) type 192.168.4.1 in the browser.
3) Log in using the pin code on the front of the charging robot/ the electronics.
If you don't get in
Why do I only get the user menu with two choices when I connect to the WiFi interface?
To get access to the installation menu, the power to the charging robot must be turned off and on again. Then the WiFi interface will show the installation menu, this is only active for a little while.
Attention! There may be differences between the WiFi interface and what you see in the user and installation guide, as new functionality will me implemented continuously.
How do I connect the charging robot to my local WiFi network?
If you have older software, it must be connected to where there is 4G first and then update th software.
Is it safe to have the cable entry at the top of the charging robot and can it be left outside?
Yes, the product has been developed for cable entry from the top, as it has been taken into account that water can enter if the gaskets do not seal completely against the cable.
Is it allowed to have several charging stations on the same course?
Yes, as long as load control is included in the charging equipment (such as in the charging robot from Easee), then it is permissible to connect several chargers to the same protection. This is explained in more detail in NEK400 (NEK400:2018) in paragraph 722.302 and in paragraph 722.533.101.
Will other connected protections affect the charging station's functionality?
No, it is recommended that an external ground fault protection type A be installed on the charging course in accordance with current regulations. The protection in the charger will not be affected by or affect the function of other external protections.
It is not technically problematic with a forward connected earth fault protection type B. The only theoretical thing that can happen is the protection type B in the fuse cabinet can trip before the protection in the charger. The built-in protection in the charger is electronic and switches off the power to the electric car if it measures a DC leakage current of 4-6mA and/or an AC leakage current of 20-30mA.
This should thus provide a certain selectivity in the system, so that a possible external A- protection normally does not trip in the event of an earth fault (AC and/or DC). The electronic protection in the charger is easily reset by plugging the charging cable in and out fo the electric car's charging socket.
Access Control, Availability and Security
Can I lock my charging robot so that it is inaccessible to others?
Yes, by holding down the touch button for 5 seconds, you gain access to the total user interface. Either deactivate the charging point or activate the RFID access control.
Can I permanently lock the Type 2 cable to my charging robot?
Yes, this is done via the local user interface or via the App.
I cannot get out my charging cable. What can I do?
Push/ press the plug in, then try removing and reinserting the charging cable from the electric car. Alternatively, you can close/ open the lock via the user menu (hold the touch button for 5 seconds until you hear a configuration tone to activate it).
Can the charging robot dynamically load balance with my house, so that I can avoid the main fuse from blowing?
Yes, but this requires external hardware that connects to your power meter. We will develop and complete this product in Q2 2020.
