Fluke FEV100 Electric Vehicle Charging Station EVSE Test Adapter


The Fluke FEV100 is an Electric Vehicle Charging Tester with a connector that has an interface for type 1 socket outlets or J-plugs on a level 2 charging station, allowing you to conveniently test the function and safety of electric vehicle charging stations. The intuitive and easy-to-use Fluke FEV100 test adapter simulates the presence of an electrical vehicle to conduct a test verifying that the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) is properly working after installing and during periodic maintenance or when troubleshooting an EVSE if it is not delivering appropriate charge.

Key Features


  • PE pre-test to test dangerous voltage in the earth
  • CP Control Pilot state simulation tests different charging states
  • PE and CP error notification
  • GFCI testing
  • Connectivity with other T & M tools for voltage, waveform, loop impedance and resistance
  • Complies with North American standards SAE J1772

Overview


Simplicity and convenience

Although electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) is designed to charge electric vehicles (EVs), it is not always practical to have an actual EV present when testing the safety and performance of EVSE. The Fluke FEV100 testing adaptor is a way to replicate the conditions presented by an EV so that the charging station can be tested in any environment.

The EVSE FEV100 testing adaptor effectively simulates the presence of an EV and has selectable test options that mimic different charging conditions the charging station then faces. These options are the charger being disconnected, the charger being connected, ready and awaiting charge, the charger being connected and charging, and a pilot error option. The EVSE test adaptor enables the electrical safety testing of EVSE and is essentially a universal test instrument compatible with all EVSE test equipment.

The Fluke FEV100 adapter for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations will test GFCI trip time and leak current, troubleshoot, and simulate control pilot and PE errors through the press of a button. In addition, the Fluke FEV100 can perform a variety of tests, including ground fault checks, insulation of wires, measuring voltage, and duty cycle to see max current available for charging - all in one adapter.
 

Safety

Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment is designed for frequent and repeated use, but cables, connectors, and the circuit itself are prone to damage and faults over time, which could lead to electric shock. The Fluke FEV100 GFCI trip test verifies the breaker of the EVSE is connected by detecting ground faults. A good GFCI will protect people and equipment from fault currents. Additionally, the FEV100 EVSE test adapter has a grounding protection pre-test feature that tests the PE conductor for dangerous voltage so you can avoid accidents when performing tests on charging stations.

Charging Station Tests

Once an EVSE recognizes it is connected to a “car” and is ready for charging, the adapter tests if the EVSE is performing the way it should be.
1. Perform the safety grounding protection pretest to verify that no dangerous voltage is present in the grounding circuit. If the indicator lights up, it is possible that the electrical wiring has been set up improperly or there is a grounding malfunction. In this instance stop further testing immediately and check for a possible wiring fault of the ground conductor.
2. Verify station output voltage using an additional meter, such as the 87V digital multimeter.
3. Verify station maximum preset charge current using CP terminals and a meter with a duty cycle function or an oscilloscope.
4. Simulate the error states as described in the SAE J1772 standard: CP error “E”, GFCI trip test, and grounding error.

CP error “E” simulation
The standard SAE J1772 defines Error “E” as a state when charging station is: disconnected from vehicle, disconnected from utility, there is a loss of utility power or control pilot is short to control pilot reference (ground). This error simulation tests the station to ensure that if there is an issue with the CP of the vehicle, the station and utility will not supply a charge to the vehicle.

GFCI
Each EVSE is required to be equipped with GFCI protection. On many stations, the GFCI protection is fully automatic and does not need a manual reset after the GFCI circuit is tripped.

Ground Error (Ground Fault) simulation
The Ground Error button simulates an interruption of the ground conductor. As a result, the pending charging process is aborted and new charging processes are prevented.

Advanced tests such as insulation resistance, power quality, analysis of the control pilot waveform and loop impedance can also be done using the adapter in conjunction with appropriate test and measurement equipment.

Verifying charging voltage with vehicle simulation
The CP state rotary switch selector simulates various vehicle states when the test adapter is connected to the charging station. Vehicle states are simulated with different resistances connected between CP and PE conductors.

The Fluke FEV100 EVSE test adapter safely integrates with other Fluke testing equipment, such as the Fluke 87V Industrial Multimeter, to measure output voltage or the Fluke 125B Industrial ScopeMeter Oscilloscope for more advanced testing of an EVSE.
