Recharging stations for electric cars

Box Station

The box station box is Enel's infrastructure designed for charging electric cars at home. It is installed in a private place, such as the car owner's garage or lock-up, and has the following features:

  • Support for two standard connectors: type 3A (4-pin) and type 2 (7-pin)
  • Both sockets allow the use of a single phase, with a maximum absorption of 16A at 230V, for 3.3kW of power
  • It performs one recharge at a time; this means that both sockets may not be used simultaneously
  • The average charging time for an electric car with a capacity of 20 kWh is about 7 hours
  • As most electric cars have an alternating current (AC) system, the same type of current used in domestic supplies, charging with a Box Station proves very economical.
Charging with an Enel Energia Box Station is easy and intuitive. To find out more, see the Box Station User Manual.

How recharging is done

  1. Identify the card by placing it on the active area below the access flap. Connect one end of the cable to the socket in the electric vehicle and the other to the Box Station.
  2. Charging begins once the electric car and the Box Station are connected. The power uptake is displayed in watt-hours (Wh) while charging is in progress.
  3. To release the cable or interrupt charging at any time, you must place the card on the active area for identification. The Box Station will communicate the amount that will be charged on the bill to the system.

POLE STATION

The Pole station is the Enel public infrastructure for recharging electric cars in public places.

It is normally installed in places open to the public, such as workplaces, busy streets or near shopping centres.

It supports two connector standards: type 3A and type 2, depending on the type of vehicle you have.

How recharging is done

  1. Identify the card by placing it on the active area below the display. When the system has recognised you, it will instruct you to insert the cable into the socket.
  2. Charging begins once the electric car and Pole Station are connected. The power uptake is displayed in watt-hours (Wh) while charging is in progress.
  3. To release the cable or interrupt charging at any time, you must place the card on the display for identification. The Pole will communicate the amount that will be charged on the bill to the system.
