So, far those of you who actually have an EVSE installed, what did the inspector check or test? Last year when my company moved into a new office, the electrical inspector did go around with an neon bulb outlet tester and check a few of the outlets. I can imagine that for an EVSE, they might want to be sure the ground connections are securely attached, that the GFCI functions, that it is securely attached to the wall so that, if strained, the EV cable will pull out and shut the system down before the whole EVSE pulls off the wall, etc. The custom test rig which AV uses is probably needed to test most of the safety-related features required by code for an EVSE, but how much do the inspectors actually do?
