This guide explains all steps needed to get a pre-configured Alfen station connected to be.ENERGISED.
Remove ChargePoint sticker and add be.ENERGISED QR-code sticker
Remove ChargePoint SIM card and add be.ENERGISED SIM-card
Install the charger, and configure the be.ENERGISED endpoint
Detailed step-by-step guide
1. Remove ChargePoint sticker and add be.ENERGISED QR-code sticker
On the charging station there is a sticker that is not used anymore. This charger would only be used if the charger is connected to the CP-CMS.
Remove this sticker, wipe off any residue with some isopropyl alcohol.
Now add the QR-Code stickers close to the connectors.
It is very important to put the stickers separately to differentiate between left and right connector. When used by the customer, only the connector on this side will be initiating the charging process.
2. Remove ChargePoint SIM card and add be.ENERGISED SIM card
Remove the existing SIM card and insert the M2M SIM card for be.ENERGISED. (Alternatively, you can use any SIM-card with public internet access or use the LAN port to connect via a public internet connection)
If a SIM card is used, the APN-settings need to be changed (explained in step 3)
If the public Ethernet is used (either via SIM or Ethernet) you have to use the public-Endpoint (explained in step 3)
3. Install the charger, and configure the be.ENERGISED endpoint
Follow the installation guide provided for the hardware installation. Use the “MyEve” App or establish an Ethernet connection to your Laptop by using the “ACE service installer” provided by Alfen.
