Please note that when you connect your charge point to Monta, we become the operator of the charge point. This means that you need to use Monta to control the charging process.

This guide only applies for ABB AC charge points.

1. Download the TerraConfig(legacy) iOS or Android app on your phone

12. Check if configuration is correct

Very important! You MUST leave the “Change charger name” field empty!

On this page, you can see if the process has been successful. Check for the three checkmarks:

  • Security identity

  • Certificate upload

  • Configure process

If any error occurs, please go to the main screen and retry from step 5. Otherwise take a screenshot of the error and forward it to Monta support.

If everything is correct, click on “Okay”.

Note: Usually, the charger will connect to the Monta straight away. However, in some cases, depending on configuration, it might take up to 4 hours to connect to Monta.

13. Connecting the charge point to your Monta account

Now you need to add and connect your charge point to your Monta account.

You can do this through either Monta Charge or Monta Hub.
