    Western Canada Superchargers

    This does sound like it could be Electrify Canada as they do have plans for Edmonton and they have partnered with Canadian Tire at the Calgary Deerfoot City location. 6 stalls would be reasonable, the BTCPower stations they use are paired with 2 dispensers per power box making this 3 power...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    The Setec adapter hasn't worked on my 2018 LRD Model 3 since 2022.8.2 which was the last working version, or at least on the AddEnergie SmartDC 50 kW chargers which are prevalent in this area (and the very reason I need this). I'm not sure why other Model 3/Y owners aren't reporting this unless...

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    EVHub is user @AlexUA here on the forum. His last post was Friday (link below). He's in Kyiv so probably has a lot of other things to deal with at the moment. Hope he stays safe. Glory to Ukraine! https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/6491477/

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    @AlexUA is the expert on this (he makes the EVHub adapter), so he can elaborate, but from what I understand from previous posts: - You might need to have Tesla service (or some knowledgeable tech) change the car configuration so that it can use the EU ECU. - The CHAdeMO adapter won't work with...

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    The 22K series resistor for thermistor correction seems pretty high if the circuit is the 100k thermistor (*or series-parallel for Therm3) paralleled with the 100K fixed resistance on the Gen 4 charge port. Even if the original 10K thermistor was completely shorted (so you only have the 22K...

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    @FalconFour I was just looking at this to find out how to arrange the thermistors if it actually was 10K thermistors on Gen 3 charge port and 45K thermistors on the Gen 4 charge port, checking typical NTC thermistor charts, then remembered something from your previous posts after looking at the...

    CCS Adapter for North America

    While they are not the exact same design, they are functionally the same. They are both passive adapters that require your car to have the Tesla charging port ECU with CCS support ("CCS Adapter Support: Enabled" in the "Additional Vehicle Information" screen). The car itself does the CCS...

    CCS Adapter for North America

    It shouldn't have to be that slow, but there does need to be certificates exchanged through PLC on the charge port cable which is slow relatively speaking compared to Internet/cellular data networks, then the charging station needs to contact the charge port operator backend through the network...

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    I would be inclined to think that it is simpler than that and that it is a second rev of the heated port which happens to have the logo in the same position as the original non-heated port, with the harness and ECU being Gen 4 with PLC, which if this is the case would invalidate the logo...

    CCS Adapter for North America

    This entirely depends on the wording of the final legislation which isn't finalized (although given Biden's bias against Tesla, there is sure to be any means possible to exclude them without explicitly calling them out by name). Once Tesla can look at the wording they can determine the best...

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    Another thought/remark: Gen 3 has no heater output on pin 1 (INLET_1_HEATER_OUT), while Gen 4 does. Thus a heated charge port must mean a Gen 4 compatible harness and charge port is installed. This is visually identifiable from outside the car by looking at the lighted Tesla logo on the...

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    Sounds like Tesla could revise the firmware to use the Gen 4 on older Model 3 with the same ECU without any hardware mods or special versions. Don't error out on INLET_1_CONTINUITY and instead use it as a version sense jumper at least on North American vehicles without the second GB/T inlet...

    We are not sure there are any cars with the specific message "Not supported", it may just be people paraphrasing what they saw, that's why people here are asking for photos of anything that doesn't say "Enabled" or "Not installed" My Pre-2020 shows "Not installed". This is a September 2018...

    Electrify America general discussion

    This is probably because the adapter is rated for 300A. While Model 3 and Y with North America and Korea firmware that support the CCS adapter cap the limit to 300A, the 2021 refresh Model S (and presumably X) do not and can and will exceed this limit, charging in excess of 500A, exceeding the...

    The gray cabinet to the left is probably for the traffic signals, Earlier photos in early stages of construction show it was pre-existing. The transformer is probably going to be in the area under the fencing, it's sized about right. There doesn't appear to be a pad for it yet, but there is a...

    Electrify America general discussion

    Possibly, but a lot of the cost for each site is the permit, transformer and installation so it won't result in proportional savings because of the fixed installation related costs. I guess they could do 2 stalls and "rough-in" the conduit for cabinet and pedestals to save some installation...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    Likely Tesla hasn't capped the 2021 Model S firmware CCS current to 300A since the 2021 S isn't in Korea yet. This might be one reason they havn't released it here so far, and possibly also why the Korean site warns against using it on >300A chargers even though it works fine on Model 3/Y over...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    The Tesla firmware will cap out at 300A anyways since they are going to cap it at what their adapter caps at. On a 400V Model 3/Y that would be a theoretical maximum of 120 kW, and on a 450V 2021 Model S that would be 135 kW. And it will be slightly less than the theoretical cap because when...

    Yes, you can find out in the car screen. 2021.40.x updates of Tesla firmware add an additional line for "CCS Adapter Support" in the "Additional Information" in the Settings, Software menu. If your car shows "Enabled" you are good to go. If it shows "Not Installed", you don't have the...

    Ask if they have parking stalls with "block heater outlets" for diesel trucks in cold temperatures. Those would be outlets powered 24/7 rather than standard block heater outlets that would be either cycled based on time or temperature.

    Western Canada Superchargers

    Fun fact: Originally when it was built in 1995 it didn't have razor wire, it was just a normal 6 foot chain link fence. Then after the first escapes a few months after it was built, a study from Correctional Service Canada concluded that it would need higher razor-wire topped fencing. Go figure.

    Thanks for the link. So the new North American cars have an ECU with a dedicated PLC transceiver. That's good news and bad news. First, the imported CCS adapter was tested on a 2021 SR+ yet still didn't work. If this new ECU is actually on new cars, that would mean that new cars would need...

    You might not need a wide angle side mirror if you adjust your mirrors appropriately. You don't need to see the side of your car, instead adjust them to see the lane next to you, and use the center mirror to see behind you. All 3 mirrors should only have a small overlap so you can see more...

    CHAdeMO adapter is missing from Tesla website.

    Just to follow up on my post, I modeled what the CCS adapter can theoretically put out on a 400V pack Model 3 LRD (2018) based on the voltages on some of my example Supercharger curves, then using the charging voltage * charger current for various common CCS chargers. These all assume a warm or...

    CHAdeMO adapter is missing from Tesla website.

    Model 3/Y pack voltage is 400V (you had it listed at 350V). However, at low SoC it is about 350V but it doesn't stay there for all that long. I'm using voltage curves from my 2018 Model 3 LR using TeslaMate. I checked on the AddEnergie specs site, while it would be logical to think that they...
