Charging operation and configuration

There are three ways to charge your car. 

 

1. Charge using Monta app

 

  • Plug the charging gun into the EV charge point.
  • Ensure the charging gun is connected correctly and tightly.
  • When connected correctly, the charge point’s LED indicator will flash yellow, indicating it is ready for charging.
  • Start the charging session through the Monta app by selecting "charge now".
  • When the charging session has started, the LED indicator will show a pulsing green pattern.

2. Charge using RFID card

 

An RFID card is provided in the box with the product. This negates the need to activate charging from the app.

  • Register the 8-digit alphanumeric code on the RFID card to the Monta Charge key setting.
  • Once registered as Monta Charge Key, the RFID card can be used to authorize a charging session even when the device is offline.
  • Plug the charging gun into the EV charge point.
  • Ensure the charging gun is connected correctly and tightly.
  • When connected correctly, the charge point’s LED indicator will flash yellow, indicating it is ready for charging.
  • Hold the RFID card to the front of the charge point for 3 to 5 seconds.
  • When the charging session has started, the LED indicator will show a pulsing green pattern.
  • For help registering the RFID card, please see see here.

3. Plug and charge mode

 

  • This is the simplest way to charge your car - once set up, all you need to do is plug the car in and go. 
  • To set this up - watch our video, or follow these steps:

What do the charger lights mean when using Monta app or plug and charge mode?
 

  • A green indicator flashing slowly for 1 second at 3-second intervals indicates the charger is ready to use.
  • Plug the charging connector into your EV’s charging socket.
  • A green indicator flashing for 200ms at 1-second intervals indicates the charging connector is plugged in.
  • A green indicator pulsing at 1-second intervals indicates the charging is in progress.
  • Solid green light indicates the EV is fully charged.
  • Unplug the charging connector. Return to standby mode after the charging has finished.

What do the charger lights mean when using RFID card activation?

 

  • A green indicator flashing for 200ms at 1-second intervals indicates the charging connector is plugged in.
