Are EV Chargers Waterproof?


Yes, most EV chargers are indeed waterproof. They are specifically designed to withstand various weather conditions, including rain, snow, and even dust. This is indicated by the IP rating, which stands for "Ingress Protection."

The IP65 rating signifies that the charger is:Dust tight: Completely protected against dust ingress.Water resistant: Protected against water jets from any direction.

Therefore, you can safely use this specific charger and most other EV chargers outdoors without worrying about water damage.

Charging System for Household Electric Vehicles

(1) Requirements for Charging Systems for Household Electric Vehicles

Household electric vehicles are mainly used by urban residents for daily travel, and can also be used as official vehicles for administrative, public institutions, companies and other units. The charging system must meet the vehicle characteristics of these users, as well as meet economic and technical requirements.

① Convenient charging: Convenient charging and simple operation. It should be charged during the longest period of outage and can meet the emergency charging needs during operation;

② Large service throughput and wide coverage: The popularization of household electric vehicles requires charging facilities to have large throughput and be able to cover residents in every corner of the city and various activities of residents;

③ Grid effect: After the popularity of household electric vehicles, they will need to draw power from the grid on a large scale, and the impact on the grid cannot be ignored. To minimize the adverse effects of harmonics, it is necessary to cut peaks and fill valleys, and adapt to the power transmission and distribution capabilities of the power grid;

④ Mature technology: Charging technology is mature, safe and reliable, and technical standards will not cause adverse path dependence on the development of electric vehicle technology;

⑤ Good investment expectations: Good investment profit expectations can attract social capital to enter the field of charging facilities during the cultivation period of household electric vehicle industrialization;

⑥Low demand for land: The contradiction between urban land supply and demand is prominent and the price is high. The demand for charging facilities is large and covers a wide area. Charging methods that take up less land should be given priority to avoid exacerbating the contradiction between land supply and demand and saving a lot of capital.

(2) Establish a Three-level Charging System

According to the characteristics of urban residents’ daily use of vehicles and the current development status of charging technology, for household electric vehicles to run conveniently in cities, electric energy supply needs to be guaranteed at three levels: “main, auxiliary, and emergency”.

① Community overnight charging is the main body of the charging system. Driving to and from get off work (or other activities) during the day and resting at home at night are the basic life patterns of urban residents. The charging method must match the residents’ life patterns. The requirements for slow charging are met during working hours, but it is not advisable during peak power consumption periods. Slow charging at night while resting can take advantage of off-peak power, which is an ideal form of charging. The specific method is to set up charging columns in parking spaces inside and outside residential areas, swipe cards from the charging columns to draw power, and use vehicle-mounted slow charging equipment for charging.

Currently, not many families have garages or parking spaces. Most of the parking spaces in buildings are owned by developers. There are a certain number of public parking spaces near communities and administrative institutions. Household electricity consumption is generally configured at 2.5kw ~ 3kw. The electricity consumption in many households is close to saturation. There are also potential safety hazards from individual households leading to parking spaces. Therefore, it is difficult for the community charging model to adopt the decentralized charging method at home, but should be centralized charging, that is, using a special transformer to draw power, sending it to the garage through a dedicated line, and then connecting it to the charging pile in the parking space, charging from the charging pile and billing;

②Charging in sports venues is an auxiliary to the charging system. In addition to work and home life, residents also have other needs, such as shopping and entertainment. A certain number of charging facilities should be set up in shopping malls, cultural and sports venues, parks, hotels and other activity venues to supplement community charging and meet emergency needs;

③Charging on traffic arteries is an emergency measure for the charging system. The cruising range of electric vehicles is relatively short, and the SOC indication is not very accurate. In order to prevent the vehicle from running out of power when it is in use, some emergency charging piles need to be set up at appropriate locations on traffic intersections and trunk lines to ensure that the power supply is quickly exhausted. vehicle charging.
