Fluke Fev300 Test Adapter Kits For Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Fluke’s FEV300 fixed cable and vehicle connector

Test the safety and functionality of electric vehicle charging stations, quickly and reliably

COMTEST, the local representative of Fluke – a global technology leader in manufacturing compact, professional electronic test and measurement tools and software, introduces Fluke’s FEV300 Test Adapter Kits, designed to test the function and safety of charging stations mode 3 for AC charging. The adapter imitates an electric vehicle and opens up a charging cycle (activating voltage/current output), allowing users to conduct tests in combination with appropriate test instruments like an installation tester (for example, the Fluke 1664 FC) and/or an oscilloscope (for instance the Fluke 120B Series Industrial ScopeMeter®). With the FEV300 Adapter Kit, charging stations can be tested in accordance with IEC/EN 61851-1 and IEC/HD 60364-7-722 regulations.

Features and functions:

  • Suitable to vehicle charging stations with charging mode 3
  • Fits to charging stations with EV socket-outlet type 2 and EV-connectors for type 2 and type 1
  • PE Pre-Test: With this safety feature, the PE conductor will be tested for the possible presence of dangerous voltage against earth.
  • Proximity Pilot (PP) state “Cable Simulation”: With PP State rotary switch, the adapter can simulate various current capabilities of charging cables.
  • Control Pilot (CP) state “Vehicle Simulation”: With CP State rotary switch selector, all charging states can be simulated.
  • Separate phase indication by three LED lamps for easy check if the voltage is present at the charging output.
  • Measuring terminals L1, L2, L3, N and PE to connect test device like installation tester to perform safety and functional tests.
  • Compatibility: Integrates into Fluke portfolio of test and measurement tools, allowing direct connection through FEV measurement terminals.
  • The Fluke 1664 FC allows safety measurements via the measuring terminals like:
  • • earth bond
    • insulation
    • loop/line impedance and RCD trip test
  • Simulation of CP error state “E”
  • Simulation of PE error state “F” (Earth fault)
  • Terminals for CP signal output to check the communication between the adapter (simulated electric vehicle) and charging station, this can be measured by a ScopeMeter® or multimeter. The voltage level defines the charging modes, and the duty cycle of this PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal represents the maximum allowable charging current.
  • IP 54 rating – Dust and splashing water protected
