EV Charging Station Tester | Metrel | MI 3152 XC
This electric vehicle charging station testing equipment allows you to service and test EV Chargers deployed in public and commercial areas for electrical safety and compliance to AS3000 standards.
* Functional tests and AUTO SEQUENCE® are supported only on the MI 3152 XC and requires the 1532 Adapter
The Metrel MI3152 XC Multifunction Installation Tester can be used to check the installation, functionality and safety of the EV charging station and all other aspects of electrician installations. To this end, it can test EV RCDs and features EVSE AUTO SEQUENCES and functions enabling the user to check every aspect of EV charging stations state-by-state at the push of a button
In addition to this, the Metrel MI3152 XC Multifunction Installation Tester can check TN, TT and IT earthing systems and features four automatic test sequences for this purpose. Furthermore, it is equipped with a variety of measurement procedures and tests:
- Insulation resistance with a DC test voltage ranging from 50V to 1000V
- Varistor test
- Continuity of PE conductors with 200mA DC test current with automatic polarity change
- Continuity of PE conductors with 7mA test current without RCD tripping
- Loop impedance
- Line impedance
- Z Auto function: combined loop and line impedance
- Loop impedance with Trip Lock RCD function
- True-RMS voltage
- True-RMS frequency
- Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) up to the 12th harmonic
- General and selective RCD testing (types AC, A, F, B, B+, MI RCD, EV RCD, PRCD, PRCD-K, PRCD-S)
- Earth resistance (supports 3-wire and 2-clamps method)
- First fault leakage current (ISFL)
- Insulation Monitoring Devices (IMDs) test
Soft Carrying Bag
– Connects directly to charge points without opening the box.
– Connects like an electric vehicle connection; so tests the whole system.
– Simulates the electric vehicle status: all at the turn of a switch.
– Simple connection to the charge point via a type 2 EV plug, and to the tester using the BS1363 socket or all three phases can be accessed using standard 4 mm connections.
– The A 1532 can be used with any installation tester, however, optimum performance is achieved with Metrel Multifunction Testers.
On-site testing of charging station installation.
Initial and periodic testing of private, semi-private and public charging stations.
