With the world's electric vehicle sector growing rapidly in response to the need for low carbon transportation solutions, there is an increased need to ensure the charging infrastructure is operating efficiently and safely.
The free and easy-to-use EVSEMobile Android app enables complete test and diagnostic data to be transferred from the EV100 to an Android device using NFC technology. The comprehensive test and diagnostic data can be viewed on the device, or exported as XML and emailed back to the office for fast and efficient fault diagnosis.
EVSEMobile also produces professional looking PDF test certificates which can be sent to clients or stored for future reference.
Using the EV100 with the EVSEMobile app enables you to get to the root of the problem quickly, saving you time and ensuring minimum downtime of the EVSE.
The EV100 can simulate all of the commonly used charging cable ratings to quickly and easily verify the correct response from the EVSE (Types 1 and 2).
No other test instruments or vehicle simulators are required. Everything you need to perform testing is included.
Remote diagnosis of problems is made easy with the ability to wirelessly transfer a comprehensive range of electrical tests and full PWM analysis back to the office from the field using the EVSEMobile app.* A skilled diagnostic engineer, back at the office, can diagnose problems and instruct the technician in the field, without having to leave the desk.*
The EV100 is the only test instrument that can confirm correct mains supply and earthing on single or three phase systems without the need for additional equipment or to disassemble the charge point to access internal conductors.
It will also measure the trip time of the EVSE RCD. A single trip time measurement at rated RCD current is possible or alternatively, a test sequence can be used to check the RCD at half rated current, rated current and 5 times rated current.
EVSE charging cables are vulnerable to damage and this may present a risk of injury to the EVSE user. The EV100 tests the insulation of charging cables, providing peace of mind to EVSE installers, operators and manufacturers that risk of electric shock is reduced.
The EV100 performs a full analysis of the PWM signal (the method of communication between the EVSE and EV) and records the voltage levels, frequency and duty cycle.
PWM data is used to display the maximum available charging current. Full PWM data can be transferred to the Android App to provide a useful diagnostic tool in cases where the EVSE is not operating correctly.
The EV100 checks that the EVSE responds correctly to faults within an EV and safely terminates the charging process when required. The time taken for the EVSE to respond to the various fault conditions is recorded within the EV100's on-board memory and can be downloaded into the free EVSEMobile Android App and sent back to base with the touch of a button.
Some EVs are fitted with batteries that require ventilation during charging. The EV100 simulates this type of vehicle and is able to quickly verify that the ventilation systems controlled by the EVSE are operating correctly, and that an EVSE which is not equipped with a ventilation system will not attempt to deliver charge if the EV requires ventilation.
