First use of Seaward’s EV chargepoint test technology


Elm Electric Vehicle Charging Solutions, a UK-based EV charging infrastructure company, has become one of the first to utilize Seaward’s new test technology for fast and efficient fault finding and maintenance of charging installations.

Elm EV has equipped its service and maintenance team with the new EV100 test instrumentation for comprehensive validation testing and fault finding on all types of AC electric vehicle charging equipment.

When connected to the charging point, the handheld EV100 carries out all of the tests to ensure that the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) operates correctly and safely at the time of installation and as part of any ongoing periodic maintenance schedules, in accordance with IEC 61851.

For diagnostic testing, the EV100 also simulates a number of vehicle faults and measures the EVSE response, including disconnection time and the amplitude, frequency and duty cycle of the PWM signal.
