Accelev v2 EVSE is a processor-controlled, advanced AC wall box with features not available in other chargers. Beside of grid monitoring (power shedding) and BatteryCare™ unique charging modes it gives an opportunity to equally load 2 phases at 3-phase 400V source to give more power to the car with single phase on-board charger, and thus – to charge much faster.
It is updatable and expandable via USB port and can be flexibly completed according to customer wishes (both cables are detachable/replaceable).
We believe that Accelev v2 is the most modern EVSE home station of our times.
- Grid monitoring (immediate load reduction while grid overload detected – no more fuse switches keeping turning off)
- BatteryCare™ – unique full charging / no full charging modes with maximum life protection for your battery
- Updateable via micro USB extension port
- Portable (some restrictions apply, see “Precautions & Installation”)
- Detachable cables (both – input and output side). Use one charger in all situations.
- 2.8 inch TFT human interface with „geek mode” – you can monitor all parameters while loading
- Overload and over-temperature protection and advanced safety solutions implemented
Accelev EVSE tries to optimise your charging speed and load automatically, therefore, the following situations may occur:
- – your AC network is not loaded, the car battery is not full – charging speed is maximised
- – your AC network is overloaded – charging speed is reduced by Accelev
- – your car battery is almost full – charging speed is reduced by car.
Below you can find time estimates for some popular cars, which can be used to predict charging your car from 5% to 95% state of charge. Notice, that car may charge slower or faster due to battery temperature and power supply voltage & load. This table does not cover all car models and your car is compatible even if it is not listed. Estimated charging speed in hours is presented.
Notice: If speed of charging is limited by low onboard charger amperage, Accelev still can be faster than other charger due to higher voltage operation (voltage boost). This applies especially to cars with 3,3kW or weaker onboard charger. Notice, that „16A charger” may load your phase up to full 16A, but faster, fully loaded Accelev 6kW will load it with 13A per phase, or with 7,5A per phase only while doing exactly same speed as 16A charger does.
Geek info: 7,5A x 2 = 15A, and not 16A, but the voltage at Accelev input will stay higher due to much lower load, so powers will be equal.
Values, Statuses (from top left):
BatteryCare – BatteryCare option status
NoFull – no full charge option status
GridM – grid monitoring (shedding) status
234/250V – voltage of shedding / actual voltage
24/12.8A – actual max. amperes / actual amperage
25C – core of charger temperature
02:12:34 – total charging time
3.569kWh – total kWh charged
3.2kW – actual charging power
Battery symbol – shows phase of charging and if BatteryCare is on or off
MAX 24A – max. amperes permitted
[+] – change max. amperes: 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24
Start – starts charging or idle, resets counters
Setup – opens Setup screens:
BatteryCare(TM) – enables and disables BatteryCare routines and functions
No Full Charging – self described, perfect for battery life.
ReVive Balancing – a special pulse balancing of battery to cure and recover lost capacity
Grid Mon – enables and disables grid monitoring (shedding)
More Sens – more sensitive grid monitoring
[+] – sets level of grid monitoring
234V – actual prediction for power shedding start
01 – tolerance of grid monitoring (01 = smallest gap, quickest reaction)
Grid monitoring depends on actual voltage in your electric grid. It is a good idea to set it more conservative. 08 is a factory setting, good for most situations. It will give about 15V gap between idle and reaction to load at 240V, and an approximately 8V gap at 210V. Increasing tolerance is increasing the gap by 1-2V (depending on actual voltage). A higher step can be observed at higher voltages, as this method of grid load control based on actual voltage to estimate load. Decreasing reduces the gap by 1-2V. In the case of electric fuses turned off please decrease tolerance first. If you see, that charger reacts to load and reduces the speed of charging, but this amperage reduction is not enough for your fuse system – please switch “More Sens” on to increase the amount of amperage reduction by twice.
S/N: F2610001 – serial number of charger
F/V: 2.0 – firmware version installed
Total Energy – global energy counter
Reset – resets global energy counter
Firmware Update – switches to boot mode, waits for update via USB port
Umax – highest voltage ever measured
Imax – highest amperage ever measured
Tmax – highest temperature ever measured
1. What is a typical setup of charger you suggest?
We highly suggest to use BatteryCare with No Full Charging for everyday use and commuting, and BatteryCare without No Full Charging for occasional, long trip occurrences. Charging battery full, along with it’s high temperature reduces usable capacity and State Of Health of your battery.
2. Can I restart ReVive balancing again after it finished to balance and cure my battery even more?
Yes, this is ok and it will work for you.
3. Can I use Accelev with 230V 3-phase network (like in some parts of Norway).
No. It won’t work. Or better to answer – it will work with a reduced speed to 4 kWh and show an error.
4. Can I use Accelev outdoors?
No, it designed to use indoor, sheltered. You can use it as a portable charger, but restrictions apply – see paragraph “3. Precautions & Installation”.
5. Can I charge Type1/Type2/Tesla US cars with one charger?
Yes. You need just cables we provide. Tesla US connector, Mennekes (Type 2) and J1772 (Type 1) are available. Your charger is delivered with one of these types. If you want more – ask us.
6. Can I have longer/shorter cables for supply/car connection?
Of course. Just tell us what do you need and we will produce that.
7. Do you plan to expand this charger to be 3-phase? Why don’t you offer 3-phase chargers?
Yes, we plan do add third phase extension as separate module, but without oblige. Charger is ready to have an extension module to 3-phase.
3-phase charger with such power in single housing will be heavy or inefficient.
Specifications & Technical Data
Standard delivery includes Type 2 EVSE-to-car cable. If you need Tesla USA plug or Type 1 plug, please inform us or your distributor. You can also order two or all three types of plugs, with additional fee.
