Our ZapCharger Pro, charging station uses the international standard Type 2 connection that endures high loads over time. Built-in to each charging station there are integrated fuses, electronic ground fault protection, temperature sensors, and over-current and over-voltage monitors to ensure the highest level of safety for both the user and the power grid.
In case of a fault, ZapCharger Pro will stop charging and electrically disconnect the EV. In a system installation, only the affected charging station will be shut down – all other charging stations will continue to be operational.
ZapCharger Pro is designed according to the highest standards for safety.
Installation owner has access to ZapCloud and can monitor the charging stations in realtime. This makes it easy to see if any charging stations are reporting warnings or error messages.
ZapCharger Pro has a built-in electronic RCD type B. That means that the RCD will detect both AC and DC ground leakage currents.
The Residual current device (RCD) will protect users and property against electrical hazards caused by earth fault and leakage current from the electric vehicle.
The RCD is offset adjusted and tested internally before every charging cycle to verify correct operation in any condition through the entire lifetime of the product.
The traditional shucko power socket is able to deliver 10A one phase safely (2300W). Some charge cables use up to 13A. This may be a safety hazard where the power socket may overheat.
The ZapCharger Pro is using the Type 2 socket designed for loads up to 63A. The ZapCharger Pro can deliver up to 32A on 3 phases (22000W) which is more than 9 times the power safely delivered by a normal power outlet.
