The EVSE-01 adaptor interfaces between the standard Type 2 EV charger connector and several models of Sonel Installation Testers to simplify safety testing of EV chargers.
Tests recommended when commissioning an EV charging station include:
- Continuity of earthing conductors,
- Insulation resistance of live conductors,
- Correct operation of residual current protective devices,
- Fault loop Impedance.
- Earth resistance if earthed independently of the supply network (solar powered)
The EVSE-01 adapter is dedicated to testing AC charging stations using the most common Type 2 connector. It will interface between the EV charger and any of the Sonel MPI range of Sonel Installation testers and allow simulation of charging currents up to 63 Amps, single or 3-phase.
Entry level to EV charger testing is with the Sonel MPI-506 teamed with the EVSE-01. These two hand held instruments will allow testing of: Earth continuity, Insulation Resistance, RCD operation and Fault Loop Impedance.
Testing can be upgraded to full automation by teaming the EVSE-01 with the Sonel MPI-535 or MPI-540 with colour touch screen control of all installation testing including EV chargers.
