Article summary

This guide describes how to onboard Rolec GreenFlux chargers with Tap. If you have a newer Rolec you can find the guide for Rolec EV Connect here.

Onboarding in this context means getting the charger communicating with Tap. If you are looking for a complete guide for setting up an account and configuring your locations, see our Quick Start Guide.

Challenging Configuration

This charger is an older legacy product and is not simple to configure. If you are not a technical person you may want to seek assistance.

  2. You will need a Windows 10 laptop and ethernet cable, and to be physically located at the charger.
  1. In the Tap app: Locations > connect new charger

  2. Select Rolec GreenFlux.

  3. The GreenFlux portal requires the Tap URL to be split into different fields, which you can copy from this page in the app.

There are several tasks to setup the Rolec GreenFlux system:

  2. Configure the firewall on your laptop
  3. Connect your laptop and configure the charger with Tap's URL and you SIM info
