Switchboards for EV chargers are essential for the safe and reliable operation of charging infrastructure.

 

They help protect against electrical faults, ensure efficient power distribution, and enable accurate metering and monitoring of charging sessions. It’s important to work with qualified electricians and adhere to local electrical codes and standards when designing and installing switchboards for EV chargers to ensure the safety of users and equipment.

Here are key considerations and components related to switchboards for EV chargers:

 

Components and Features:

 

Circuit breakers

Switchboards typically incorporate circuit breakers or fuses to protect the EV charging equipment and wiring from overcurrent conditions. Circuit breakers can be sized to match the specific requirements of the charging station.

Disconnect switch

A disconnect switch or isolation switch is included to allow for the safe disconnection of power during maintenance or emergencies. It is a critical safety feature.

Metering

Some switchboards for EV chargers may include electricity meters to measure
the energy consumption of charging sessions, which can be important for billing and reporting purposes.

Surge protection

Surge protection devices may be integrated into the switchboard to safeguard the EV charger and connected equipment from voltage spikes.

Ground fault protection

Ground fault protection devices can detect ground faults and protect against electrical shock hazards. They are particularly important for outdoor charging stations.

Enclosure

Switchboards are typically housed in weatherproof or NEMA-rated enclosures to protect the electrical components from environmental factors, such as moisture and dust.

Wiring and terminations

Switchboards are equipped with terminals and wiring connections that are properly sized and rated to handle the electrical load and voltage requirements of the EV charger.

Load management

In some applications, switchboards may include load management capabilities to distribute available power to multiple EV chargers intelligently. This can help balance power demands and prevent overloading of the electrical supply.

 

Considerations for Installation:

 

Location

The switchboard should be installed in a location that provides easy access for maintenance personnel and complies with local electrical codes and regulations.

Capacity

The switchboard’s capacity should be matched to the total load of the EV chargers it will serve. This includes considering the charging rate of each charger and any future expansion plans.

Wiring and conduit

Proper wiring and conduit should be used to connect the switchboard to the EV chargers and the electrical supply. Adequate wire sizing and protection are essential to prevent overheating and electrical hazards.

Safety

Safety should always be a top priority during installation. Proper grounding, labelling, and safety procedures should be followed.

What Our Clients Say


This company is excellent. We go to them first for Grid Protection Units. They offer great value especially when you add their top notch customer service. As usual, we needed something STAT this week and the team didn't leave us hanging, even finishing it up and testing on a Saturday to meet our timetable. Graham Dennis shout out.
Mark Horsfall (Simmark)

CTC has always provided great service on the many occasions we have worked with them on our solar projects. They are reliable, responsive, and overall an excellent company.
Daphne from The Greenguys Group

Big fan of these guys - always answer the phone. They helped me out when Endeavour Energy required a neutral voltage displacement protection function on the solar installation
