OCPP Car Charger

This module allows a Wallbox car charger to be linked to the xxter! This uses the OCPP (version 1.6j) standard, so the wallbox must support this.
In the near future, in the upcoming beta update, we will also add an app element, to control the wallbox directly.
At this moment the KNX <-> OCPP function is available for testing.

How to set this up?

1) First go to beta.xxter.com, select your project and select the OCPP Car charger page. Here you can add a wallbox (two chargers are supported per xxter controller at this moment)
The OCPP wallbox will identify itself to the xxter with an ID, ofter this will be the serial number of the wallbox. If this is cannot be found in the documentation, after step 3 of this instruction, when the wallbox will try to connect to the xxter, the ID can be seen on the statuspage of your xxter.
xxter supports the ws (web socket) as well as the wss (secure web socket) standard. Of course the secure version is recommended.

2) Load the configuration into your xxter, enable OCPP support on the protocol page, and select if you want to use ws or wss.
When using wss, you might need our OCPP root certificate, this certificate can be downloaded there: https://my.xxter.com/OCPP-CA.pem

3) Set up the wallbox, to connect with OCPP 1.6j to wss://ip-adres:8016/ where the ip-address is the ip-address of your xxter.
How this is done, depends on the type and brand of the wallbox. In some cases you might need to contact the support department of the manufacturer.

4) On the status page of your xxter, you can see the status of the OCPP car chargers. After some minutes, the wallbox should be connected.
