Smart Powersharing between two EVduty Smart-Home
The EVduty level 2 charging station has to be installed on a 40 amps electric circuit. Most households can install it on their main panel of 100 amps or 200 amps. More families now chose to purchase two electric vehicles. Unfortunately, some people can’t add another 40 amps electric circuit for another level 2 charging station.EVduty now has a ”smart” version, the Smart-Home. On top of offering statistics for each single charging session, it does powersharing. We can now have two EVduty Smart-Home on the same 40 amps electric circuit. Every electric circuit can’t go beyond 80% of its breaker. On a 40 amps electric circuit, the maximum is 32 amps.While charging only one EV on an EVduty Smart-Home, the charging station will offer its maximum output of 30 amps. As we connect a second EV on the second EVduty Smart-Home, both charging stations will do a ”smart” powersharing. Both EVduty Smart-Home will charge at 16 amps for a total of 32 amps. As soon as an EV will be fully charged, the other EV will then be charging at 30 amps. This setup is programmable on the EVduty app (available on iPhone and Android).
Patrick Charette purchased his two EVduty Smart-Home on TimeToElectrify’s online store. He instaIled them on a 40 amps electric circuit to charge his family’s Kia Soul EV and Chevrolet Bolt EV. Here is a video of the smart powersharing functionality between two EVduty Smart-Home :
