RCD – Residual Current Device (DC 6mA)
European standards require that any charger for PHEV or EV is protected with a residual current device against potential direct current leakage from vehicle (DC 6mA).
This device shuts current as soon as unbalanced continuous current is detected, in order to protect user.
This device is included and integrated inside this charging station so that things are easier for you. You can simple connect your charging station to your power grid while being sure that you benefit from high quality and European compliant protections.
Depending on your local regulation, charging station must be connected either to a Type A or Type B residual current device (RCD / RCCB).
Dynamic power control
Thanks to this option, the charging station monitors current at the main fuse and regulate charging power provided to your vehicle. This depends on the possibilities your installation can offer.
It will then automatically reduce or increase charging current provided to your vehicle depending on how much power is still available. If necessary, it will stop charging process so that main fuse is not operated.
You can leave your vehicle peacefully since charging process is automatically optimized by the smart charging station itself. Without this option, charging power selection has to be done manually by user.
Moreover, this charging station is future ready because it can be connected to Smart Grid so that charging power can be controlled by any external analog signal.
High quality equipment
This charging station is designed and manufactured within the European Union.
All components have been selected for their quality and robustness:
- Ultra resistant, lightweight and flexible cable
- Upper quality electronics and connectors
- Robust metallic box
This charging station is compliant to European requirements and is certified by TÜV institute.
Moreover, all charging stations are tested with care prior to shipping in order to ensure they are working properly. In addition to that, they are equipped with residual current protection so that user protection is maximal.
Cable and box are made in highly resistant material made for external use (sun, rain, etc.) and have IP54 rating. In other words, you can charge your electric vehicle safely.
In ideal conditions, your personal charging station is located in a place that fully belongs to you, even in terms of access.
If this is not the case, we have some solutions in order to make sure your charging station is only used with your consent.
It can be equipped with a unique key in order to lock its box.
A remote controller device can also be added so that you can turn it OFF and ON. The charging station can also be locked with a unique key in order to keep the box closed.
Thanks to that, you can manage the charging station usage the way you want, even in a non-fully private area.
Protection against overheating is also included. It works completely autonomously.
In case overheating is detected by the charging station, it will automatically decrease charging power or even completely stop charging is necessary. When it cools down, charging station will increase back power in order to optimize vehicle charging process.
