On this page you will find the steps to connect the Circontrol charger to the E-Flux by Road platform.

Configuration Requirements

  • Configuration package E-Flux by Road

    • Contains: EVSE ID, configuration manual for the installer and registration manual for the owner of the charging station

  • User Manual Circontrol

  • Laptop equipped with a Windows operating system

  • UTP cable

Important: In order to connect the charge point to E-Flux, you need to use the OCPP 1.6 backend connection. To obtain that, you need a license. To get the license file, please contact CIRCONTROL Post Sales Department at [email protected], prior to installing E-Flux on the charge point.

Follow the steps

Step 1: Download the IPSetup software

First download the IPSetup.exe and install it on your Windows computer. Then find the MAC address that is on the communications board, inside the charge point.

Step 2: Change the IP address of the charge point

Connecting a computer directly to the charge point needs to be done via a static IP address. The computer and the charge point must be in the same network and in the same range. In order to change the IP of the charge point, use IP Setup.

  • Enter the MAC of the device (can be found inside the charger, on the communications board).

  • Enter the desired IP Address.

  • Click on Configure.

Step 3: Login to the charge point WebUI

The Setup Webpage is opened automatically on the default web browser. If not, you can open a web browser and enter the IP address you configured in the previous step. If login credentials are required, use these credentials:

username: admin

password: 1234

Step 4: Enable DHCP

In this example, we use Ethernet connection. Navigate to the Network section and enable DHCP from the on/off toggle. This will allow the charge point to obtain an IP address automatically, when connected to the router/network switch.

Click on the Save icon in the right top corner.

Step 5: Select OCPP 1.6 integration

Navigate to the Integrations section and select OCPP 1.6 from the drop down menu.

If you are able to select OCPP 1.6, go to step 6. If you do not have OCPP 1.6 as an option, the following message will pop up:

To obtain the license file, please contact CIRCONTROL Post Sales Department at [email protected]. After the license is obtained, you can upload it using the Select File button in the integrations section.

Choose the file from your computer and upload it.

Step 6: Access the OCPP configuration

Once OCPP 1.6 option is selected, a link appears allowing access to the OCPP configuration. Click on the Link button. These tabs require a user identification:

user: admin

password: 1234

Step 7: Change host URL

After logging in to the setup page, navigate to the "Central system" section and change the Host URL to ws://ocpp.e-flux.nl/1.6/e-flux

Click on the Save icon in the upper right corner.

Step 8: Reboot the charge point

Once done, please do not forget to save the changes by clicking on the Save button in the upper right corner and then reboot with the button on the right.

If you are the installer of the charging station, go to step 9. If you are the owner of the charging station, go to step 10.

Step 9: Complete the following steps to activate the station on the E-Flux by Road platform:

  1. Login to your Field Service Account or create a Field Service Account via www.e-flux.io/installer-signup*.

  2. Go to “Setup New EVSE” in the menu on the left and enter the serial number or OCPP ID of the station.

  3. Click on “Setup charging station”.

  4. Click on Upload Configuration, then click Next.

  5. Choose and define the connector type, and choose “Save Connector Configuration”.

  6. The charging station is now activated and ready to be registered by the owner!

*A Field Service Account is for installers only and will be used as a point of contact for technical tickets.

Step 10: Complete the following steps to register the station on the E-Flux by Road platform:

  1. Ask your installer to complete Step 9 to finish the configuration of your charger, or call E-Flux by Road to finish the configuration.

  2. Create an E-Flux by Road account by going to www.e-flux.io/signup.

    • Is this charging station facilitated by your employer? Check your email for the invitation.

  3. Follow the steps to add the location and register your charging station.

  4. Put the sticker with the QR code on the charging station so it’s easier to identify the station if you need support.

  5. The charging station is now registered and ready to be used!

The charging station is now connected to the E-Flux by Road platform!
