Fault Protection For EV Charging Stations


Protection against electric shock is a prerequisite for the success of the electric vehicle industry. Wide
ranging standards efforts are underway in various committees around the world, such as  UL, DKE and DIN. DC capable sensor technology offers a significant improvement in electrical safety and helps to ensure 
charging stations function as intended. The Europeans have a 6mA DC trip requirement on their chargers, but the US employs AC sensing only.  We will look inside an EV charging station,  review the protection technology, and discus how to assure a safe EV charger installation.
