The Rheinmetall Curb Charger

Unobtrusive, space-saving, flexibly scalable.


The Rheinmetall Curb Charger - simply touching

With its innovative approach, Rheinmetall is unlocking a completely new dimension of electric charging.

By intelligently utilizing existing urban infrastructure and delivering high charging performance, a fully-fledged alternative to conventional charging stations is presented.

In particular, the curb charger helps solve the problem of limited space in both urban and rural areas and enables a quick, easily expandable, and cost-effective installation of new, publicly accessible charging points.

  • Up to 22 kW charging power
  • High-quality, robust housing
  • Intuitive one-hand operation without curb contact
  • Integrated 4G modem
  • Intelligent load management
  • Authentication via RFID, QR code, or operator app
  • Clever cooling and heating concept
  • Reliable operation in rain through encapsulated electronics (IP68)
  • Easy retrofit and maintenance through replaceable electronic module
  • Use cases: street parking, customer and employee parking lots, multi-family homes, P&R parking lots
Service-friendly housing concept

The Rheinmetall CurbCharger boasts a service-friendly design, ensuring effortless installation and hassle-free maintenance. With the innovative CurbSwap feature, the built-in electric module can

be easily extracted from the curb and replaced with a replacement module. Thanks to a swift quick coupling, the module reconnects to the low-voltage grid in a matter of minutes.

The result? Unparalleled cost savings during construction and electrical installations by utilizing dummy curbs across the area, while minimizing any potential downtime for mainte- nance at individual charging points.

Smart connectivity

Equipped with standardized interfaces and an inte- grated 4G modem, our charging curb takes com- munication to the next level. Seamlessly exchange data between the charger and backend systems using the certified OCCP 1.6 communication standard.

The advantage? Real-time information on charging sessions, customer reservations, and the status of charging points, along with the ability to perform over-the-air software updates. This ensures that the Rheinmetall CurbCharger is always up-to-date with the latest technology advancements.

Innovative cooling and heating concept

Our intelligent cooling and heating concept ensures optimal performance and protection for the hard- ware inside the CurbCharger. Designed to prevent overheating during high ambient temperatures, our well-thought-out cooling system provides reliable temperature control. With integrated temperature monitoring, we guarantee the optimal delivery of charging power. Additionally, in freezing conditions, our built-in heating system ensures a dependable and snow- and ice-free operation of the charger.

Electric charging: even when It's raining

Encapsulated electronic components (IP68) and the charging socket equipped with seals and water drains enable reliable charging even in the rain. If water accumulates on the street and compromises a safe charging process, a water level sensor interrupts the process before the residual current device (RCD) is triggered.

Safety First

In the event of electrical disruptions, our integrated surge protection, along with the continuous monitoring of protective bonding and earth connection, provides additional safety for individuals, electric vehicles, and connected systems.
