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.

1. Prerequisites

1.a. OCPP 1.6 license

In order to connect the charge point to Monta, you need to use OCPP 1.6 backend connection. To obtain that, you need a license.

To get the license file, please contact CIRCONTROL Post Sales Department at ps-support@circontrol.com, prior to installing Monta on the charge point.

1.b. Computer setup

To configure a Circontrol charge point, you will need:

  • Windows computer

  • LAN cable

  • IPSetup software

First download the IPSetup.exe and install it on your Windows computer.

Then find the MAC address that is on the communications board, inside the charge point.

2. Change the IP address of the charge point

Connecting a computer directly to the charge point needs to be done via a static IP address. The computer and the charge point must be in the same network and in the same range.

In order to change the IP of the charge point, use “IP Setup”.

  • Enter the MAC of the device (can be found inside the charger, on the communications board).

  • Enter the desired IP Address.

Click on “Configure”.

3. Login to the charge point WebUI

The Setup Webpage is opened automatically on the default web browser.

If not, to access the Setup Webpage, open a web browser and enter the IP address the you configured in the previous step.

If login credentials are required, use these credentials:

username: admin

password: 1234

4. Enable DHCP

In this example, we use Ethernet connection.

Navigate to the “Network” section and enable “DHCP” from the on/off toggle.

This will allow the charge point to obtain an IP address automatically when connected to the router/network switch.
