Rcd Modules for Wallbox and Totem EV Chargers

27-02-2023 | Luso Electronics | Power

EEMPL has released its latest product series of high-quality RCD magnetic modules, available now from Luso Electronics. Aimed particularly at residential wall boxes and public charge points, these devices add to its comprehensive range of automotive-grade magnetic components.

The AMD-R0117F is an RCD module with an integrated fluxgate IC to facilitate accurate real-time effective detection of AC and DC residual currents and prove a trip signal to simplify leakage current detection design on customer applications.

Generally, some form of infrastructure is needed to supplement/charge the batteries on EVs. These can be AC or DC based and are separated into four modes in the most common international EV charging standards.

Recent regulations, IEC62752 and ICE62955, demand that when charging EVs, differential current sensors are utilised to avoid hazardous situations where the DC batteries are connected to residential AC power supplies. These RCD modules satisfy this condition.

Darren Simmonds, VP sales for EEMPL, comments, “We are excited at the launch of this module, being the first in a series which we will be launching over the coming year. E&E are committed to rapidly expanding our range of magnetic modules, which will deliver advantages by combining several functions into a single component with the benefit of saving space, cost and accelerating time to market”.

EEMPL are working with major automotive companies with diverse components for applications such as wireless charging and OBC. Many such items are custom or slightly modified standard components. The factory has many engineers with years of experience supporting custom automotive designs.

The company's product specialists are available to help with product selection and guide customers through the design cycle.
