Understanding Enegic: What Is It and Why Is It Important?

Enegic is not just a load balancer; it's a central part of the modern, smart home. This system ensures efficient and safe charging of electric cars by balancing the load and maximizing the use of available power without overloading the main fuse.

What are Enegic Monitor, Enegic One, and Enegic EVI?

Enegic Monitor

Enegic Monitor.png Enegic Monitor is a dynamic load balancer that reads power and energy consumption in real-time per phase, allowing monitoring and power control of electrical consumers like charging boxes.

The unit fits in all properties regardless of new or old electricity meters and is directly connected to the property's phases via current sensors (included 16mm or 36mm) and is powered either via the included USB charger or optionally via power adapter DIN with terminal cord purchased separately.

To effectively measure the current in both small and large installations, several alternative current sensors are available. These sensors offer different diameters for the loop, namely 16mm, 36mm, and 100mm. All three sizes are available with a normal current range of 0-900A. The two larger sensors, 36mm and 100mm, also offer a high-current variant with a current range of 0-2.5kA. The high-current variant is purchased separately.


The package includes:

  • 1x Energy Monitor Measuring Unit
  • 3x Current Sensors, low current 16mm or 36mm
  • 1x USB Charger
  • 1x Velcro Strap
  • 1x Manual
  • 1x License

Enegic Monitor One

Enegic Monitor One is a variant that simplifies installation by connecting the unit directly to the smart electricity meter's P1 port/RJ12. Note that you cannot install the unit with power transformers. Currently, there is no support for HAN port/RJ45. The unit is powered by most smart electricity meters, but there may be exceptions depending on the brand and model. If the unit does not get enough power, it can be powered via the accessories USB adapter with terminal cord or separate power adapter DIN with terminal cord.


Compatible electricity meters include Aidon 6534, Kamstrup, Landis+Gyr E360, Sagencom T211, Sanxing S34U18, Sagencom T211, Aidon 6534, Sanxin S34U18. For some Kamstrup meters, Kamstrup Omnipower HAN module for P1-RJ12 is required. Note that the module does not pass current, therefore either USB or power adapter is required.


Enegic EVI

Enegic EVI is a new general license that simplifies the installation process for all installers. EVI is available for both Monitor and Monitor One. With this license, all charger box integrations with Enegic are open under one and the same license. As an installer, you can easily choose which charger box you want to configure directly in the app. Although previous licenses for specific charger boxes like Zaptec, Easee, and Charge Amps continue to work, the new general license offers a smoother process, especially in environments with charger boxes from various suppliers.

Installer's Checklist


Always check the compatibility between Enegic and the charger box you are going to install. Ensure that there is an integration between the manufacturers. You can see all current, new, and upcoming integrations here. Currently, there are integrations between charger box manufacturers such as Amina, Easee, Zaptec, Wallbox, Charge Amps, Autel, Nexblue. Also, charger box operators like Monta, Clenergy EV, and payment solutions like Vourity.

Installation Preconditions

Start by assessing which type of Enegic you should install. If the customer has a compatible smart electricity meter, we recommend installing Monitor One. Then you connect the unit via RJ12 connector directly into the electricity meter. If external power supply is required, install the unit with a USB adapter with terminal cord or separate power adapter DIN with terminal cord.

Solar Production Measurement

For properties with their own solar production, Enegic can offer access to detailed information about the property's current production capacity. By connecting a fourth current sensor for solar cell measurement at L4, Enegic Monitor can measure the power generated from the solar cell installation. This gives a clear and distinct picture for the customer of how the energy flow is distributed between production and consumption in the property.

Note that Enegic Monitor does not work correctly in the presence of a battery system in the solar cell installation. Therefore, it is important to avoid such configurations to ensure proper function. For further reading about solar production and principle sketches for installation, you can read more here.

Integration Methods

Understand the difference between Full integration and Light integration. Based on this, you can offer the customer selected features together with the supplier you have chosen.

  • Full integration – Enegic can use the API from the charger box, thus offering scheduled charging and control of spot prices. This integration is more advantageous as it enables more features.
  • Light integration – Enegic sends current values from measuring units to the charger boxes' cloud for dynamic load balancing. This integration has fewer functional possibilities.


Understand the differences between various features offered to respective charger boxes or operators. If you wish to see which features work with respective charger boxes, you can find them here.

Dynamic Load Balancing – The ability to use as much current as possible for charging without overloading the main fuse.

Offline Mode – If the system or cloud for the charger box goes offline, the charger will revert to a safe charging mode or an offline level.

OptiCharge – Smart charging to charge your car when electricity prices

Solar Measurement – Enegic can measure the power produced by your solar panels. For this function, Current Sensors for solar cell measurement are required, which are mounted in the Enegic monitor (not One).

Solar Charging – A function to charge your car with your own produced electricity from the solar panels. Note that charging occurs when export is 6A or higher (may vary depending on car model).

Multi-Point Measurement – Measure at several points in an installation where you have several electrical cabinets and/or different fuse levels.

Hierarchical Load Balancing – With multi-point measurement, we can ensure that all necessary fuse levels are protected, from the main fuse all the way down to where the chargers are connected. This ensures that all fuses are protected and not just the main fuse.
