Electric Vehicle Charger Test Equipment | EVSE Test Tool | Gridtest Systems
So many good uses for one of these beyond electrical contractors. For instance, all the various websites and apps for chargers can now have a line or box to check for "test-verified" good for any EV organization to own and perhaps even a checking service offered by college students.
It would be very handy just for mapping ampacity levels and voltages at various public charge points to feed the online databases.
Never mind the Tesla branded golf balls, this is one accessory that should be promoted more heavily - especially in these early years of recharge infrastructure development.
Note, these cost about $3,000 each.
That's a lot of balls...
Other uses for Charge point Tester
I'm with the Start up who built the EV Emulator tool. We're based in Calabasas CA
Reading the thread I wanted to share another idea. We were thinking of encouraging the installers to email the test report on the Charging stations to a central resource database (Recargo, Carstations or Dept of Energy AFV locator). Going forward I don't think all the Charging station vendors will know where their Stations are being installed. So we need to engage the installers as well as they have the accurate info.
Any other ideas?
Neal do you know there is a pair of non working public chargers in Calabasas?
Also a basic (no frills), much cheaper readout that just shows volts and ampacity without otherwise testing the EVSE.
(So no dummy load, or other test features.)
please encourage them to contribute the data to the Open Charge Map database. Then, when the government funding stops, or the commercial players go under, the data remains available for us all to use;
European version that also tests 3 Phase
No. I don't spend much time around Calabasas.
Thanks Kevin, a 3 phase unit is on our roadmap.

any progress with the European version that tests 3 Phase?
I've seen a tester similar to the ones pictured. It was being used by an Areovironment technician. It has a huge resistor in it that generates quite a bit of heat when used.
