Mennekes world leader in e-car EV-charging solutions, which has developed the Type 2 socket, called Mennekes, which is the plug that the European Union has chosen as the standard for the European infrastructure in mode 3 AC charging has developed the new Amtron Compact version from the best seller EV-charger Amtron.
Mennekes AMTRON Compact 2.0
Amtron Compact has a similar design to the previous version, but it is more compact. The development of this new series also includes other improvements, such as the 7.5 meter cable long as standard for both power versions which are the classic 7.4 kW for the single-phase version and 22 kW for the three-phase version.
Safety devices such as Welding Detection
Other improvements include safety devices such as Welding Detection that allow to activate an external disconnector device in the event of overheating but also blackout protection that can be used via a compatible external Modbus RTU meter. As accessories it is also possible to have protection from external overvoltage.
Possible connection to external EMS as well as 4 AMTRON Compact
Through the Modbus RTU connection, it is also possible to connect to external EMSs as well as 4 Amtron Compact for load management and for charging the e-car direct with the energy from the photovoltaic system.
The authorization for recharging takes place via an RFID card or via a relay.
All basic settings can be made via dip switches while advanced settings are made via software that also allows diagnostics and updates.

AMTRON Compact 2.0 datasheet
The Wallbox Mennekes AMTRON Compact 2.0 have been carefully designed to facilitate use, comfort and safety. In the modern and functional design with silver and black colors, a practical charging cable holder system is integrated.
Each AMTRON Compact 2.0 Wallbox includes a type 2 charging socket with shutter, a device required by Italian legislation for the protection of people.
The powers available are 7.4 kW and 22 kW three-phase. The maximum power can be set by the installer inside the appliance to the maximum value so as to adapt to the power available at the installation point.
The operating status of the Wallbox is displayed via different colored LEDs.
Welding Detection: two additional connection terminals allow the activation of an external release device which, in the event of a fault (overheated contact), disconnects the recharging point. \
Compact 2.0S vs Compact 2.0
AMTRON Compact 2.0S compared to the Compact 2.0 version has a wider range of functions, including:
- Authorization by card instead of key switch
- Blackout protection by external Modbus RTU meter
- Load management up to 4 charging points
- Settable via Dip Switch
