EVBox Livo is designed to meet the current and future needs of EV drivers
With the growth of electric vehicles on the road, intelligent charging solutions can support the energy transition and avoid overloading the grid. EVBox Livo will be compatible with the EVBox ‘Dynamic Load Balancing (DLB)’ kit to ensure that users can charge at the maximum speed and do not need to worry about investing in a costly grid upgrade in their homes.
Thanks to over-the-air updates, EVBox Livo supports future smart charging features, meaning that users can enhance their charging station with new capabilities over time. Firmware updates will be rolled out automatically and improve the stations overnight.
Built to last with sustainable materials
EVBox Livo is the most tested and validated EVBox product to-date. With IP55 ingress protection- and IK10 impact rating, the station is built to perform in harsh climates and resist severe weather conditions. It has been designed to operate in a wide range of operating temperatures (between -30°C and +50°C). Due to EVBox’s long-year experience as a supplier for the Automotive Industry, EVBox is meeting the latest cybersecurity standards for a connected device.
After a successful pilot project back in November 2021, Livo’s housing is made with Makrolon RE®*, a more sustainable alternative to conventional plastics.
Installation and charging setup made easier than ever
EVBox Livo is designed to be installer-friendly. With an easy-to-mount wall bracket and simple cable routing, installing a Livo is quick. Plus, thanks to the new EVBox Install app, the configuration is straightforward, reducing the set-up time during the installation process. After the installation process is finalized, end-users will be able to have total control over their charging sessions via the EVBox Everon App, meaning they can track, configure and control all charging sessions from the palm of their hand. The intuitive LED based user interface on EVBox Livo makes operating the station as easy as possible.
