EN-GATE is the abbreviation for energy gateway, which controls the network communication between chargers and the backend by means of Ethernet/WIFI/4G.
The gateway has the function of cluster management, enabling network connection with maximum 12 pcs chargers via just one gateway. The advantage is to minimise the communication fees, reduce the single charger cost, and decrease the pressure on cloud server.
