charger listing for details on supported models and charger specifications.
Supported Firmware Versions
Charge HQ has been tested with firmware version v01.25.12.00.
Step 1 - Obtain an EVSE ID from Charge HQ
Open the Charge HQ app
Go to Settings tab -> My Equipment -> Connect your Smart Charger
EVSE ID: this will be entered into your smart wall charger, note down that value displayed on your app or copy it to the clipboard. You will use this in Step 5.
Min and Max Power (A): Update these if you believe they are different to the default settings.
Note: The EVSE ID is a unique identifier for your charger, it cannot be the same as any other OCPP charger that is connected to Charge HQ. For this reason Charge HQ will provide you with a known-unique value that you can set in your charger.
Step 2 - Access configuration portal
Access the charger's web configuration tool as per the charger's install guide. Some tips:
The web configuration tool can be accessed via the charger's WiFi hotspot or Ethernet port. These tips assume the WiFi hotspot method.
The web configuration tool can not be accessed via the home WiFi network, even if the charger is connected to the home WiFi network.
The WiFi hotspot SSID is the charger's serial number, eg "JV99999999999WE". The password is printed on materials included with the charger.
With your device connected to the WiFi hotspot, access the web configuration tool at http://192.168.5.1.
Login using "admin", the password is printed on materials included with the charger.
Step 3 - Configure charger
Navigate to Configuration tab and set:
Charge Box ID: <as obtained from the Charge HQ app in Step 1>
Supervision URL: ws://ocpp.chargehq.net/ocpp16/
OCPP Version: OCPP1.6J
Offline Policy: No Authentication
Max Charging Current (A): the rating of the circuit. VALUE MUST BE ADVISED BY AN ELECTRICIAN
Communication: as per your local network eg WiFi with SSID etc.
Once the charger has connected to Charge HQ via OCPP, the WiFi hotspot and the internal Ethernet port will be disabled. There is no way to access the web configuration tool whilst the charger is connected to OCPP.
To access the web configuration tool you can:
delete the charger from Charge HQ
power the charger off and on
Once the charger has finished rebooting the WiFi hotspot and Ethernet port should be available, although the hotspot may switch off after a few minutes if you don't connect to it.
