Keba KeContact P30 Charger Configuration

This page contains instructions for configuring
chargers with Charge HQ
Please refer to our
charger listing for details on supported models and charger specifications.

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.
  • Click Submit

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 the Keba web configuration tool for your charger as per the charger's install guide.

Step 3

  • Ensure your charger is connected to your local home WiFi using the supplied configuration guide

Step 4

Configure the OCPP settings by navigating to the Configuration menu, then select "OCPP"

Configure the OCPP settings as follows:

  • Chargepoint Identity: <as obtained from the Charge HQ app in Step 1>
  • OCPP Communication Type: OCPP 1.6 JSON
  • Central System Hostname: ocpp.chargehq.net
  • Central system Port: 80
  • Central System Path: ocpp16
  • Secure Central System Connection: OFF
  • Central System Authentication Mehtod: None
  • All other values can be left at their defaults

Note: if you prefer to connect via SSL/TLS, please refer to our SSL/TLS connection guide.

Step 5 - Confirm communication with Charge HQ

Lastly - confirm that the charger is connected to Charge HQ.

In the Charge HQ app, navigate to Settings → My Equipment → Smart Charger

Confirm that the Connection State reads “Online”

Step 6 - Confirm ability to control charging

  • From the home screen of the Charge HQ app, select “Charge Now”
  • Confirm that the LED lights on the charger and the display on your EV indicate the vehicle is charging.
  • Confirm that charging is occurring at the configured rate (Amps)
  • From the home screen of the Charge HQ app, select “Stop”
  • Confirm that charging of your EV has stopped.

Step 7 - Continue Charge HQ configuration

Charge HQ can now control your wall charger.

See our Step by Step setup and other app configuration guides for assistance with configuration of the rest of the Charge HQ app.
