The FEV300 Test Adapter Kit with Type 2 Connector is an essential tool for testing the function and safety of Mode 3 AC charging stations. It allows technicians to conduct tests in accordance with IEC/EN 61851-1 and IEC/HD 60364-7-722 using installation testers, like Fluke 1664 FC and ScopeMeter® from the Fluke 120B Series. This all-in-one adapter simplifies the process of connecting and testing charging stations, as it imitates an electric vehicle thus eliminating the need to bring an EV onsite.
When connected to a Type 2 socket outlet or vehicle connector, it enables technicians to perform ground fault checks, insulation of wires, measuring voltage and duty cycle – all necessary steps that help evaluate max current available for charging. The FEV300 also comes with three LED lamps which indicate separate phases; this makes it easier to check if voltage is present while conducting tests.
Overall, this adapter kit provides all necessary tools and functions needed to ensure function and safety of Mode 3 AC charging stations per industry standards. It also eliminates a number of steps required for troubleshooting by acting as an electric vehicle during a charging cycle; this way technicians can quickly continue without unnecessary delays.
