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.

Safety First

At Rheinmetall CurbCharger, we prioritize enhanced electrical safety above all else. Our system features an IP68 protection rating, effectively safeguarding against rain and standing water.
