Overview

Unlike competing brands the Poulsen Power Charging system eliminates the expense of running a dedicated 240V line from the building’s power panel to the location. In the case of a detached garage digging and line drawing can run as high as $1,500 to $2,000.

The Poulsen Power EVSE Charging Station gives you Level 2 EVSE charging from the existing120V-20amp circuit serving the garage area, which is converted to 240V-20amp.

Installation can be done inexpensively by exchanging the single throw circuit breaker in your power panel with a double throw breaker. Once the 240V circuit breaker is installed, the electrician will mount the Poulsen Power EVSE charging station on your garage wall and you will have fast 240V Level 2 charging.

What happens to the lighting and power outlets in my garage after I convert my garage circuit to 240V?  The patented Poulsen Power  EVSE charging station contains a built-in 240V to 120V step down transformer for restoring the 120V supply to the garage light, power outlets and door opener.

 How The Poulsen Power EV Charging Station Works:
1. Clock with built in timer for scheduling late night charging.
2. LED and Status Bar Graph shows you the charging progress.
3. Mode of Operation Switch allows you to charge immediately or start charging at a preset later time.
4. Transformer steps down the 240 volt power coming from your electrical box to 120 volts for your garage outlets, lighting and garage door opener.
5. Industry Standard Vehicle Connector (J1772) connects to your vehicle.

Installation




When installing your Poulsen Power Charging Station (‘Station’), all local and federal electrical codes must be followed.

At the main circuit breaker panel, install a GE 240v / 25A GFCI circuit breaker and connect to the 12/2 GA (Plus Ground) wire that leads to the Poulsen Power Charger location (existing garage circuit). Refer to all installation and test procedures included with the GE GFCI Panel mounted circuit breaker.

The Poulsen Power Charging station should be secured to a wall stud or other permanent structure using (Qty 2) ¼” x 1.5” Lag Screws, within 10 feet of the intended charging location. Indoor installations shall be mounted at a sufficient height between 450 mm (18 inches) and 1.2 m (4feet) from the floor. Outdoor installations shall be mounted at a sufficient height between 600 mm (24 inches) and 1.2 m (4feet) from grade.
Remove the front cover of the Station and locate the terminal block in the lower left-hand corner of enclosure. Wire the Station as shown in the diagram above.

Test all connections / circuits prior to turning the circuit breaker on.

Install the cover of the Station using the two screws.

Turn circuit breaker to “On”.
