Our vision

Electric mobility is a current and ever-evolving theme. The attention to the environment and exploitation of sustainable resources has overwhelmingly projected into everyday life what until recently seemed a reality still too much distant from us. The widespread use of electric vehicles will bring numerous benefits over time, both for the environment and everyday life. It will reduce emissions of harmful gases (CO2 and NOx) and improve quality of air we breathe. This already contributes to combating climate change and preserving people’s health.

Sustainable mobility systems are increasingly being used, such as car sharing, carpooling, electric vehicles, or vehicles powered by alternative fuels. The new trend is not limited to road or railway transportation but also to shipbuilding. In fact thanks to rigid sails, new ships have been designed combining traditional propulsion with wind-powered or electric propulsion.

It is a real “revolution” not only affecting our modes of transportation but also the production of electrical energy itself. The production of electricity from renewable sources such as the sun and wind is becoming widespread, enabling cleaner vehicle charging less dependent on fossil fuels.

This leads to greater energy independence reducing the environmental impact associated with extraction and combustion of hydrocarbons.

Furthermore, electric vehicle technology is in full development, by the increase of energy storage capacity of batteries and implementation of an ever more efficient charging infrastructure. The use of electric cars is also convincing the more skeptics due to more affordable prices, incentives given by the gonvernment and other benefits for the public.

Charging modes

The charging of electric vehicles is regulated by international standards (IEC 61851-1 and IEC 61851-22) that identify 4 charging modes.

For power levels between 3.7 - 22 kW, charging with a dedicated cable and socket (T2) is defined as Mode 3.

After the cable is connected, the charging station performs a series of safety checks then to start with charging phase. The management of converting alternating cur- rent (AC) into direct current (DC) suitable to be stored in the battery is carried out by specific electronic boards installed in the vehicle. Simultaneously, the infrastructure verifies various parameters through the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) protocol, including battery temperature, state of charge, current delivery, and protective con- nections.

Mode 3 charging is currently the most widely used, in private homes, public street charging stations, parking lots, etc. Generally, Mode 3 is used where it is possible to leave the car for several hours. The investments required to establish a Mode 3 infrastructure are limited compared to those necessary for Mode 4 direct current charging (typically used for ultra-fast charging, e.g., highways, service stations).

Cars are often equipped with an emergency charger that allows connection to a domestic SCHUKO socket. This is a module inserted between the power plug and the socket connected to the vehicle. This solution is defined as Mode 2, and charging times are significantly longer because the current delivered is usually lower than 16A.

Mode 1, on the other hand, is used for charging electric bicycles, scooters, and electric mopeds.

The various charging methods are highlighted in the figure.

Charging connectors

To make charging accessible and connect cars to different charging infrastructures, the European Commission defined the charging connector type (Type 2) to prevent the proliferation of different solutions that could have caused disservices.

For Mode 4, which is reserved for DC charging, there are two types of standard con- nectors: CHAdeMO (Japan) or CCS Combo1 and Combo2 (Europe).

Plugs and sockets for EV charging

  • Supply 1000 V DC
  • Current 200/500 A

  • Supply 500 V DC
  • Current 125 A CHAdeMO 1.0

The charging time

Unlike internal combustion engine vehicles converting the chemical energy contained in fuel into mechanical energy, the “fuel” for electric vehicles is the electri- cal energy which cannot be transferred with the same timing as traditional fuels. For this reason, the charging time varies depending on several parameters: vehicle charge level, ambient temperature, infrastructure power, charging type, etc.

Dealing with Mode 3 systems, being all other parameters equal, power is fundamen- tal to reduce charging time.

The power of the infrastructure varies depending on the type of power supply (single-phase or three-phase).

Here is a table showing the theoretical maximum withdrawable power:

Current (A) Single phase (KW) 3 phs (KW)
16 3,7 11
32 7,4 22

Higher powers correspond to shorter waiting times.

The safety of an Italian product

The current regulation that defines the construction and safety specifications of charging points is EN61851. This regulation requires that the charging point is protected by a type B residual current device (RCD) - known to be quite expensive - or alternatively, by a suitable system for detecting components of alternating and direct currents, accompanied by a standard RCD.

To create a safe and economically appealing product, all GI-BOX wallboxes are equipped with a Current Residual Monitor (CRM) that continuously verifies the safety of the charge, making the use of a type B RCD unnecessary. This leads to significant cost savings!

The additional protection “shutter” for domestic installation
The version with T2 panel mounted socket is equipped with a shutter a diaphragm that serves as an additional protective barrier as required by regulation EN/IEC 62196-1 2014 for UK, FR, SG, ITALY.

RFID Authorization

To restrict access to authorized users only, GI-BOX can be equipped with an RFID card reader. The “Administrator” user can create a list of authorized individuals for vehicle charging. This solution is particularly appreciated in semi-public areas (e.g., charging service offered by hotels). At any time, it will be possible to have accurate information about the consumption and associated costs of each individual charging point, thanks to the integrated certified MID module (meter).

LCD touch screen

GI-BOX is provided with a large 7-inch LCD touch screen that allows users to configure the numerous available options according to their personal needs. The touch screen interface makes device customization easier and more intuitive, enabling users to modify settings, select preferences, and tailor GI-BOX to their individual preferences.
In semi-public areas, upon request, it is possible to customize the display to list services, insert advertisements, company logos, etc.

Wallbox GI-Box Interfaccia pannelli solari

Interface with solar panels

Thanks to GI-BOX technology, it is possible to connect your photovoltaic system to the wallbox and charge your car, minimizing expenses and contributing to sustainability. This is the real Go Green solution!

GI-BOX integrates with any type of solar panel system, whether it has energy storage or not.
For each charging session, users can choose from three modes based on their needs:


FULL POWER - Fast charging without cost limits: Charging at the maximum power that can be delivered to the vehicle, utilizing all the power generated by the solar panels and potentially withdrawing from the grid for the remaining power needed.

ECONOMY - Charging with cost limit: Charging with limited power withdraw from the grid to control costs. The maximum charging power is the sum of the power taken from the grid and that available from the solar panels.

GREEN - Zero-cost charging: Charging using only the power generated by the solar panels, without drawing from the electrical grid. Charging times may be longer if the solar panels can provide limited power.

Power management

GI-BOX can be equipped with an optional module for instant consumption detection to prevent annoying blackouts.
The module detects consumption by signaling it to Gi-BOX which allocates the re- sidual power at recharging, keeping the overall absorption always below the limit dealed with the supply contract stipulated with the Electricity Company, avoiding the overload.
In the case of multiple installations, the power is normally distributed as follows: equal among all GI-BOX units, allowing to assign a higher priority to a single station reducing the charging time.

The user can choose to allocate 50% (medium priority) or 75% (high priority) of the total available power to a single GI-BOX unit while dividing the remaining power equally among all other connected GI-BOX units.
