maybe 8A also.

jumpers on the borrd could ce easily set at install,
or a rotary switch wired ti the jumper heder would
make the unit nicely portable.

no metal EMI shield on my Nissan AV L2 EVSE

Tue May 01, 2012 1:08 am

Interesting, the Nissan-branded Aerovironment EVSE I won and received today doesn't have the metal shield that is in kolmstead's post (http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 932#p39932" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) or the pics here earlier of it.

The manual appears to be the same revision as the scan at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 867#p39867" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Perhaps I should take some pics of the internals of mine before I sell it? I was surprised (but understand why now) that the lid/front cover wasn't attached at all. That's what the 9 supplied screws are for...

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I used to have a Leviton until I built my own. I see that they use the Blue proxy switch wire. My Leviton EVSE shut down when the switch was pressed.

The relay looks like the one Chris uses.

Glenn,

The relay used is similar but it seems to have more contacts, we use a DPST in OpenEVSE, this one looks like it could be DPDT... I have a Schnieder EV link as well as the portable OpenEVSE I built.

You are right. I overlooked the small white wires.

Its hard to tell but I think the blue wire is the pilot not proximity. The yazaki cables use blue for pilot and do not have proximity brought out through the cable.

The blue wire is the pilot signal, there is no proximity wire entering the enclosure.

The relay is a DPST Tyco T92P7A22-240 with a 240 vac coil.
The small wires are attached to a male spade lug connector which is part of the main power female connectors.

What I really found interesting was the daughter-board attached to J7, which seems to be a way of passing a controlled current on the protected side of the GFCI coil.
