The input is the same as the output, since the losses for self-consumption are minimal and therefore negligible. Charging losses and the actual efficiency occur in the conversion of alternating current to direct current in the vehicle. We cannot make general statements concerning these values, since they vary from EV to EV.
Yes ‒ for example, in this case a separate control unit from VECTOR can be used.
DC charging is not allowed via a Type 2 plug, as the communication (ISO 15118) requires a much higher level of security. DC charging is only possible in accordance with the conductive charging system (CCS) standard IESC 62196-3.
No, of course not.
There are no precise guidelines in this regard. If you purchase a charging cable with CEE plugs, charging the EV functions 23% faster (2 A more) than it does with the SCHUKO® plug.
Our charging cable is operated in permanent current ‒ until the temperature sensors in the SCHUKO® and/or IC-CPD "react" and throttle the power.
Our Legal Department and the responsible Managing Director are responsible in this regard.
Ready-made solution 32541:
Left: white LED
Non ready-made solution 32511:
The LED should always be activated with a square-wave signal (brightness). This can also occur with 12 volts, however, in this case the overall power that results at 5 volts, must not be exceeded (pay attention to the duty cycle). During the pauses for activation of the LEDs the temperature sensor must be read-out, otherwise a ground offset occurs.
Activation mandatory via H-bridge, otherwise a retraction occurs at switch-off!
Let the customer choose. If necessary, the customer must retrofit the camping socket outlet, however this is safer (connection and fusing by an electrician) and faster.
A 5 x 2.5 mm² charging cable for 11 kW has a line diameter of 13.6 mm; the smallest bending radius is 6x the cited diameter ‒ this would be 8.15 cm. Thus, a coil has a diameter of 2x the radius. 16.3 cm is the smallest possible coil that can be wound.
A 5 x 6 mm² charging cable for 22 kW has a line diameter of 17.4 mm, the smallest bending radius is 6x the cited diameter ‒ this would be 10.44 cm. Thus, a coil has a diameter of 2x the radius. 21 cm is the smallest possible coil that can be wound.
