Fluke FEV300 test adapter kits for electric vehicle charging stations

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

Fluke-FEV-300applicationFluke’s FEV300 Test Adapter Kits, are 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
