Saelig Company now offers the HT Instruments MacroEVtest, a portable device for verifying the functions of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and for safety tests in private and industrial environments. The device, together with the EV-Test100 EV adapter, connects to the charging station to enable the verification of the EVSE's complete functionality and electrical safety in compliance with standards IEC/EN 61851-1 and IEC/EN60364-7-722. EV-Test100 can test charging stations with charging modes 2 and 3 with a Type 2 or other common connector.

The MacroEVtest controller is connected through a C100EV cable to the EV-Test100 unit, which is attached via a built-in cable with a Type2 plug to a recharging station. The handheld tester with its touch screen display eases communication with the EV-Test100 unit to simulate the existence of a car being recharged. All tests can be executed correctly by following a guided procedure. Before each test, the tester display shows exactly how to connect the cables, and after the measurement, it reports the recharging station's safety verdict with a green or red thumb symbol.

The device's TFT colour display with its touch-screen provides for rapid setting and usage of the instrument, offering on its display all alternatives for performance measurements. The system prompts the ideal connections to certify correct and dependable test results. All tests can be saved, and the data can be transferred through WiFi or optical USB to an external PC.

Produced by HT Instruments, the MacroEVtest is compact (8.9" x 6.5" x 3") and lightweight ((2.7lb).
