Section A: Hardware Setup
1. Establish a connection between your PC and the charge point
The first step is to establish the connection between your PC and the charge point you will be integrating. This can happen in one of two ways:
(1) Connect your PC and the charge point to the same ethernet switch.
OR (2) Connect your PC directly to your charge point.
2. Power on your charge point
3. Give a static IP to your PC in the same network as your charge point
To be able to change settings on your charge point though your PC, they need to share the same IP. The IP of your charge point is 192.168.0.10. In order to match that, you can set your PC's IP in a range between 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.254
For example, 192.168.0.11 can be set as a static IP to your PC.
To access these settings please press Win+R and follow the flow as shown here.
