Viridian EV's EVSE Protocol Controller (EPC) is the intelligent part of the vCharge charging stations. It is the communication unit that enables Mode 3 charging in accordance with IEC 61851 and it is available to buy to those building their own EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) or upgrading/replacing parts in other charging stations.
The EPCs leave the factory programmed ready for use/installation at 32A. This is the maximum current advertised by the EPC. If you require a 16A EPC, this can be configured by removing the internal jumper conector. Other maximum currents can be set if required by wiring a resistor across the IC -0V terminals. Details of resistor values can be found in the manual.
On top the different current ratings available, there are two different flavours:
- Tethered (Compatible with tethered installations only)
- Free/Socket (Compatible with Type 2 free/socket installations only)
