What Are the Things to Remember While Installing an EV Charging Station

by Nathan Daniel Content Creator

If you are thinking that installing an EV charging station is an easy task then that is not so. If things are not done in the right way then you won't get successful. Apart from this, many other things need to be done to get the best EV charger installation in Sydney. If you want to have the best idea about it then you must check out the points that are explained below in detail.

Things To Remember While Installing EV Charging Station

  1. It is not recommended to power any other appliances, such as a washing machine, with the cable that connects the fuse box to the EV charging station. For charging stations, a simultaneity factor of 1 is appropriate. This illustrates how not all gadgets are used simultaneously. Additionally, the wall box or the circuit for the EV charging stations should adhere to AS3000 standards.
  2. In the case where the charging current is 16A, pick a cable with a minimum diameter of 2.5mm2. By doing this, the risk of the wire burning is eliminated. Utilise a five-conductor three-phase supply to charge the car with a charging power of 11 to 22 KW.
  3. The cable's inner diameter is influenced by a number of variables, including the cable's length, any potential drops, the temperature of the surroundings, and the installation style. Therefore, get the help of a licensed EV charger installer in Sydney to ensure that you select a cable with the correct diameter for your needs.
  4. By balancing the current in the live and neutral cables to/from your EV, a residual current device reduces the risk of electric shocks. The imbalance is recognised and the RCD shuts off the circuit when the residual current travels through the vehicle's body or the driver to the ground. For complete safety, it is essential that each charging station be equipped with its own RCD.
  5. Another crucial safety tool is a circuit breaker. The circuit breaker will stop/interrupt the current flow when too much current flows through the cable (due to overload or short circuit, for example), protecting the circuit. Make sure a circuit breaker is installed to safeguard the charging station circuit.

These are the things you need to do when it comes to commercial EV charger installation in Sydney.
