Siemens VersiCharge™ electric vehicle charging station. 1.2 Symbol Legend To reduce the risk of electrical shock, and to ensure the safe installation and operation of the Siemens VersiCharge™, the following safety symbols appear throughout this document to indicate dangerous conditions and important safety instructions. DANGER Hazardous voltage.
The term EV used in this manual refers to an electric vehicle. The term AC used in this manual refers to alternating current. The term Universal unit refers to any VersiCharge with a plug and chord assembly attached, i.e. part numbers VC30XXXU**** (Indoor / Outdoor Use) The term Hardwired unit refers to any VersiCharge which is factory configured for hardwired installation only, i.e.
This device has been designated to meet the requirements in section 626 of the National Electric Code (NEC®). UL Listing with Listing Number – Siemens VersiCharge Devices are listed in UL file # E348556 Complies with the following UL Standards: 2594, 2231-1, 2231-2...
Charging Circuit Interrupting Device (CCID): The Siemens VersiCharge line of EV Charging Systems includes a Charging Circuit Interrupting Device (CCID). The CCID is required by UL Standard 2231 and is designed to detect grounding faults within the system, and disconnect power from the downstream conductors when a fault is detected.
Some EV’s may initiate a delay of charge when exiting out of the ‘Pause’ state before the EV starts telling the VersiCharge to start charging again. Please refer to the user manual for the EV for further information.
• Available voltage, current and frequency: VersiCharge EV charging stations can draw up to 30A at 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz (7.2kW of power). The complete electrical structure of the building must be adequately sized to handle the entire building energy load, under peak conditions, as well as the charging station load under operation.
The VersiCharge will mount on the surface of the wall, protruding at least 15 inches, and a location for installation should be chosen where there is sufficient space to park an EV, walk past the device, open nearby doors, etc., without obstruction.
Verify that lag screws are going into the stud. Hang the VersiCharge on the Mounting Bracket by first hooking the bottom of the unit into the mounting slot and then hooking the top into the mounting tab.
This section describes the hard-wired installation for the hardwired units, but also includes the step of removing the cord-and-plug assembly in case the universal VersiCharge units need to be hard-wired during installation. Removing the Cord-and-Plug Assembly (only required for UNIVERSAL UNITS) ...
Remove the cord-and-plug assembly from the conductor opening o Disconnect the attachment plug wires from the terminal block by loosening screws in position 1, 2, and 3. o Do not adjust the two screws on top of the terminal block unit. These are for factory use only.
Route conduit to the opening of the unit and terminate appropriately. Route conductors, with proper strain relief, into the VersiCharge from the conductor opening o Pull 3-6 inches of slack through the conductor opening ...
The Siemens VersiCharge has the option to set the maximum amperage/power that can be delievered to the car using the Amperage adjustment switch. Note that Versicharge cannot control the power draw to the EV, it can only communicate the current capacity of the device to the EV.
3.6 Remote Control Interface The Siemens VersiCharge has a Remote Control Interface that allows charging to be controlled by an external device. This interface could be used to respond to a demand response event from a utility.
‘Pause’ state. o Pressing the ‘Pause’ button again will move the VersiCharge to the ‘Ready to Charge’ state, and if a charge is required, the VersiCharge will automatically begin charging and move to the ‘Charging’ state. NOTE: To reset the device you can turn the circuit breaker feeding the device off, then turn it back on.
4.5 Delay Timer The VersiCharge has a built in delay timer to allow users to select the time that they would like for their EV to charge. The delay timer will prevent the VersiCharge from entering the ‘Charging’...
To de/re-activate the Halo: o Remove the connector from the EV and place in the connector holster o Verify that the VersiCharge is in the ‘Power Available’ state by ensuring that only the ‘Power Available’ indicator is illuminated o Press and hold both the ‘Pause’ and the ‘Delay Timer’ buttons for 5 seconds.
Section 5: Troubleshooting 5.1 General Settings Some of the errors that occur are not caused by the VersiCharge, but by the EV compatibility or by settings which are turned on in the EV itself. If the unit is going into fault, please check the settings in the EV to ensure that these are not causing the VersiCharge to stop charging.
EVSE. The Limited Warranty does not apply to, and Siemens will not be responsible for, any defect in or damage to any Siemens VersiCharge EVSE: (1) that has been misused, neglected, tampered with, altered, or otherwise damaged, either internally or externally; (2) that has been improperly installed, operated, handled...
OR ANY PERSONAL INJURY. To the extent any implied warranties are required under applicable law to apply to the Siemens VersiCharge EVSE, such implied warranties shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be limited in duration to the Warranty Period. In...
