Are there inexpensive UL listed DPST 40 amp digital timers on the market?
Wait! Just asking this question gave me an idea though! Instead of having the inexpensive digital timer control the EVSE I could just have it control the pilot inside the EVSE. Either by controlling the power to the pilot signal generator or controlling the pilot connecting to the car. That might just be accurate enough to get the timers synched as a work around. It is still not a complete solution of course.
The more I fiddle with this though the more I think I should have just tried to order the AV unit last year and taken the 50% tax credit. I have already sunk almost $400 into retrofitting this unit with the new cable and connector and the AV unit would have been like $900 before the tax benefit. Granted the AV unit is not built anything like the EVSE I have and I was told by ClipperCreek it would work with the LEAF using the new cable and connector and for the most part it does. Sigh.
Maybe I will call ClipperCreek and see if they would still take back the connector and cable since they told me it would work and I can apply that cost to the AV unit. At least I can still get the 30% tax credit.
