OCPP is a standard protocol specially developed for wallboxes. With OCPP a world opens up: You can use OCPP for example
- Make the status of your wallbox visible to yourself and others on the Internet. So you can see if it is currently occupied, if someone is loading, etc.
- Connect your wallbox to backends for billing purposes. This allows you to integrate your wallbox into the networks of large charging station operators and earn money with your wallbox and/or conveniently bill it if several people use it
- Integrate your wallbox into a charging management system. We offer a charge management system that can also use wallboxes without OCPP. However, most other providers require OCPP
The cFos Power Brain 11kW is (as of November 2020) by far the cheapest wallbox that supports OCPP
