To start the charging process, simply plug the charging cable into the charging socket of the electric vehicle. The charger then controls the entire charging process fully automatically and accurately.
REQUIREMENTS TO START
• You have positioned the vehicle with the charging socket within reach of the charging plug.
• You have engaged the parking brake of the vehicle.
• You have switched off the vehicle motor.
An electromechanical actuator automatically locks the plug-in connection in the electric vehicle after plugging in. Immediate locking of the charging plug in the vehicle’s charging socket ensures a secure connection to the vehicle during the charging process. In addition, the charger sets the charging parameters for an optimal charging process, depending on the specific vehicle.
The “Start” menu is displayed on the charger touch screen. Symbols in the status bar indicate the current vehicle status and connection status. Several display elements provide precise information about the progress of the charging process.
1. Unplug the charging plug from the vehicle’s charging socket.
2. Place the cable back on the cable holder.
3. Plug the charging plug into the holder on the charger.
In some cases, the EV locks the connector. To unlock the connector, obey the instructions for the EV. It may be necessary to unlock all doors of the EV, or use the ‘unlock charge connector button’ on the car key, if present.
In case of alarm, the charger stops the charging process. Charging will stop without user interaction:
• In case of alarm/hazard. When the charger triggers an alarm due to an undesirable operating state,it immediately stops the charging process. The touch screen shows an alarm message in the full-screen mode or the “Alarm” button in the menu.
• When the battery is full, the charge session stops automatically.
• When the maximum charge time set by the operator/owner has been reached.
In the “Options” menu, press the “Alarms History” button. The charger lists all recorded alarms there.
To charge an electric vehicle again, you need to first deactivate the active alarm. When you press the “Acknowledge alarm” button when deactivating an alarm, the controller of the charger checks the cause of the alarm again. As long as the cause of the alarm is still present, the charger does not deactivate the alarm. First eliminate the cause of the alarm and then deactivate the alarm by pressing the “Warning / Fault Acknowledgment” button.
The touch screen displays the status of the connection of the charging cable and the vehicle in the status bar with the percentage.
The progress bar provides you with an overview of the charging process. The display
element will show the individual steps of the charging process:
• Step 1. Electric vehicle connected. Connection and vehicle recognized.
• Step 2. Cable check.
• Step 3. Pre-charger. The charger is increasing the charging voltage to the maximum voltage level of the battery.
• Step 4. Charging successfully.
The touch screen displays the following information for the current charging process in the “Energy Delivered During Last Charging Session” menu:
• Start Date. Specifies the start date and time of the charging process.
• Initial SoC. Indicates the initial state of charge (SoC) of the vehicle battery.
• End Date. Indicates the end date and time of charging.
• Final SoC. Displays the final state of charge (SoC) of the vehicle battery.
• Energy Delivered. Indicates the amount of energy transferred to the electric vehicle during charging.
• Alarm Code. The charging station displays the following alarm codes:
- Value “0”: It has completed the charging process without errors.
- Values “1” to “43”: It has aborted the charging process prematurely with an alarm. You can find a list of the alarm messages in the section Alarm Messages (Page 95 OEM Manual).
The touch screen displays the vehicle status as follows:
To avoid damaging the touch screen, follow the instructions below:
• Do not touch the touch screen with sharp or pointed objects.
• Avoid shock or impact with hard objects.
• Touch the touch screen only with your fingers or a touch pen.
Notify when the display or the LED display fails.
SAFETY AND BEST PRACTICES
Unplugging the cable:
Before unplugging the charging cable, check the connection status. Only when the charger displays "Charging is complete" or "The plug connection is unlocked" (open lock symbol), you can unplug the charging cable.
Charging cable safety:
• Never use force to remove the charging plug from the charging socket of the vehicle or the holder of the charger.
• Check the vehicle’s charging cable and charging socket for damage or dirt before charging.
• Only start charging with an undamaged and clean charging cable and charging socket of the vehicle.
• Do not change the vehicle position during charging.
• Always use the charging cable without an adapter or extension cable.
• Do not bend or twist the charging cable.
• Do not drop the charging cable.
• After removing the charging plug, place it immediately into the plug holder of the charger.
• Always place the charging cable back on the cable holder of the charger.
• Protect the charging plug from rain (plug holder or plugged into the vehicle).
Charging plug and cable holder:
Use the charging plug to establish a charging connection to all electric vehicles that are equipped with a charging socket according to standard CCS type 1. When not in use, keep the charging plug stored in the plug holder of the charger. When it is plugged in, the plug holder protects the charging plug from mechanical damage and environmental influences. The cable holder safely stores the charging cable in a space-saving manner; this protects the charging cable from damage.
INTERRUPT CHARGING IN THE POWER CABINET
There is the Emergency Stop button in the Power Cabinet to press in a hazardous situation. Pressing it triggers an alarm and immediately puts the charging station into the safe Emergency Stop state. This state stops the charging process immediately and prevents charging from starting.
The charging station only returns to its normal operating state after the button has been reset.
Canceling the Emergency Stop state:
First eliminate the hazardous situation. Only then can the Emergency Stop state be canceled.
The Emergency Stop button is equipped with a rotate-to-unlatch mechanism. An arrow on the top of the button indicates the direction of rotation for unlatching.
To cancel the Emergency Stop state and unlatch: turn the Emergency Stop button in the direction of the arrow until the button is released.
