EV charging made easy

Separate RFID tags? Connecting to wi-fi? There’s no need for any of that hassle. Innohome Charlie charging station is your reliable partner for everyday charging.

Plug in and charge. It really is that simple. Innohome Charlie charging stations are designed to make charging your EV easy while keeping it fast and safe.

“Our vision was to make a charging station that truly benefits the user. It should be very simple and easy to use but allow room for some customisation too, all while maintaining high standards and affordable prices,” says R&D director Riku Roine from Innohome.

The simple charging station is always ready for use and although it can be managed with different applications, it isn’t dependent on any kind of network. We all know how much the tiniest connection errors affect todays world. No bank access, no streaming your favourite series, and the list goes on. Innohome Charlie charges your car regardless of the network conditions.

Seamless cooperation for maximum ease

For the sake of simplicity, you can use the charger as is. It’s perfect for busy life: Just like you’d charge your phone or wireless earbuds, no need to worry about anything. Just plug in and charge. That’s all you really need.

For those who like having options, it is easy to manage the important functions like charging rate and time or utilise cheaper electricity using the app from your EV manufacturer, electricity company, or a third party like Tibber or Gridio. Innohome Charlie goes seamlessly together with different vehicles and applications.

Safe charging with Innohome Charlie

EVs need high power to charge, which makes safety a big factor in their charging and charging products. Innohome Charlie charging stations have been designed with safety in mind, and you can charge worry-free at any time of day.

“Our background is in fire safety and specifically in preventive solutions against electrical fires, so we really know how to make it safe,” says Roine.

Innohome Charlie charging stations have a built-in 6mA DC residual-current monitor, which in addition requires a Type-A residual-current device on the supply side, as described in our installation instructions. Together, these both cover the safety requirements for DC and AC residual-current protection.

Innohome settles the IPR dispute

Innohome’s core, as also included in the company name, is in innovation and providing fire safety to homes. Since 2005 we have invented devices to prevent the kitchen fires and electrical fires at homes. The significant number of patents granted for our products throughout the years are there to protect our original ideas and product innovations.

Recently, we received another proof of the strength of our IPR as Norwegian Board of Appeal for Industrial Property Rights recognized the validity of Innohome patents in Norway. Norwegian Board of Appeal organization is an independent, court-like, body under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries.

Innohome has been in litigation process against one of its competitors, Safera Oy, for several years in the market court of Helsinki Finland. Innohome is proud to announce, that the companies have reached a settlement this month and the dispute is over.

We happily continue the work to improve the fire safety of homes with our own products, as well as through licensing. Approximately 50 % of all home fires start in the kitchen and with Stove Guards most of them could be prevented.

Increasing Nordic fire safety: Franke Futurum’s cooker hoods with integrated Stove Guards soon available

Franke Futurum’s and Innohome’s collaboration is bringing advanced cooker hoods to the Nordic market to prevent kitchen fires. Over 50 % of all home fires start in the kitchen and mainly from the stove. Almost all of them could be prevented with stove guard technology. Norway has been the forerunner in fire safety and stove guards have been mandatory there since 2011. As the Norwegian regulators have already noticed, a stove guard with a permanent power supply, is the best and most effective way to prevent fires in the home. We look forward to bringing this technology to new and existing markets and thus actively contributing to an improved fire safety in Nordic homes.

The first Futurum series cooker hoods with integrated Stove Guards are available in September 2020. They are sold by Franke to construction companies and installed in apartments with central ventilation. The same models will be available through Franke’s wholesale channels later on. Next year also traditional cooker hoods with motor and integrated Stove Guards are available under Franke brand through retail sales points.
