Safety measures for electric vehicle charging

New White Paper

HP WP safety-measures-EV-charging.png

Some Electric Vehicle Supply Equipments (EVSE) claim for built-in protective devices or embedded protection.

How safe are those solutions?
How to select a safe charging solution?

This document summarizes the protective measures required by the International Standards (IEC), and explains how to identify if protection against electric shocks, protection against overcurrents or protection against overvoltages are correctly implemented.
