ZapCharger Pro's charging system is built for the future with a simple installation and with great possibilities. Developed and manufactured in Norway with easy and affordable installation. This intelligent charging system combines advanced hardware and state-of-the-art software that independently runs on the charging station. It is connected to the a cloud solution for advanced configurations, monitoring and modern algorithms. The solution is future-oriented as new functions are delivered through software updates to the charging station from the cloud.
Unique scalability and easy installation
ZapCharger Pro's charging system shares a single current course and power cable. The communication between the charging stations is via the power cable and is connected to the internet (the cloud) either via WiFi or through the power cable (via a PLC-unit). This unique infrastructure makes it possible to start the installation with just a few chargers or just the back plates only and then extends to more charging stations as the need increases. Bakplatene (the back plates) can first be mounted and the charging stations can be connected later, if desired. These can be bought separately and are not included with the charging station.
Extension of an existing installation, therefore, does not require extra work or investing in the fuse box. The installer simply connects the charging station to the back plate and the existing infrastructure (power cable)- which has already been set up.
Dynamic Load and phase balancing
ZapCharger Pro provides full usage of the available electrical capacity with dynamic load and phase balancing across all charging stations.
Load balancing optimizes available power for electric vehicles. It also saves power and provides safe charging that does not overload the network.
- Monitors the charging systems available charging current
- Ensures that the available charging current is distributed and used equally
- Does not over load the course or set limit values
- Balances on 3 different levels
- Balances across courses
Phase balancing distributes the load evenly on all phases. Prevents uneven distribution of the load and provides optimal utilization of the network's capacity.
- Distributes the current load on the 3 different phases as evenly as possible
- Prevents uneven loading in the charging system
- Better utilizes up to 66% of available power
- The charging stations automatically switch from 3 phase to 1 phase and vice versa
All of this makes it possible to charge up to 100 cars in one day on one simple 63A current course (3 phase TN). It also means that you can charge with up to 22kW (32A/3 phase) at all charging stations. Soft start ensures that the mains are not overloaded at the beginning of charging and thus prevents any fuses from tripping due to high and short current pulses.
Timed power management
ZapCharger Pro's newest feature is the possibility to set a schedule for available power. In this way, you can easily regulate the draw of power at given times which is extremely practical since the tax on electricity from 2019 in connection with the new AMS power meters.
Safety in the highest
ZapCharger Pro has a specially designed type 2 connector which allows the connector to drain. The charging station is supplied with built-in electronic earth fault protection type B which ensures detection of direct current and earth faults. It resets every time the charging plug is pulled out from the charging contact. This reduces downtime and the need for support and maintenance. With series-connected relays and detector circuits, voltage is not applied if a fault occurs in the system's safety relay. At the same time the charging station detects any overvoltage and has integrated fuses (3x32A type C). Temperature sensors and electronic monitoring of the flow of current in the charging station in the instance of any heat detection (>50°C) and with automatically notify, as well as interrupt the charging if something wrong occurs. The charging station automatically restarts in the event of a power failure.
Each ZapCharger Pro can authenticate the user through NFC/RFID or ZapCharger App. At the same time, it will accurately measure the power consumption through the built-in power meter. This provides control and overview of the power consumption via the app or the web portal/ the cloud. Likewise, the use of charging stations in shared garages or vehicle parking spaces can be allocated and paid for by each individual user. The queuing system ensures a fair distribution of available power.
ZapCharger Pro is compatible with all electronic installations, all power grids and all electric vehicles. You can, therefore, rest assured that your investment will endure for many years to come
ZapCharger Pro Communicates with the cloud solution via either WiFi, PLC or WiFi-PLC gateway. The latter works so that one of the charging stations is connected to WiFi (master) and the rest of the charging stations communicate via PLC.
Digital tools- Cloud solution and application
The ZapCharger Pro also follows Zaptec sin webportal (Zaptec's own web portal) and ZapCharger App which gives you full control and overview of the installation. All data can be found in the cloud and is, therefore, available for you and your customers regardless of where you are. ZapCharger Pro supports most communication protocols and is designed to be online. The built-in payment solution can be easily activated in the app. ZapCharger Pro can thus pay for itself- and after a while become an attractive source of income.
ZapCharger Pro is ready for future challenges as it is software-based and can be upgraded over the internet. The cloud solution is built on Microsoft Asure which ensures its working time and stability. With this premium hardware which is designed and produced in Norway, you can be sure of the quality and that ZapCharger Pro will last for many years to come.

Questions and Answers
What is the difference with ZapCharger Pro's system
ZapCharger can charge up to 60% more electric vehicles at once due to its patented phase, load balancing and the intelligent queuing system. This means that the system can utilize 100% of the available capacity at all times compared to other systems that draw up separate rates for each individual charging point.
Is it cheaper to install ZapCharger Pro?
For larger installations, ZapChargers are up to 30% cheaper, due to their unique and simplified installation process. You can connect a very large number of charging stations to one and the same power cable and at the same time assign internet access via the same power cable.
