Easy charging at home

Siemens VersiCharge: A modern, functional design and easy handling to create an optimized solution for use in private garages and semi-public parking lots. The protection type IP56 facilitates outdoor applications, e.g. in carports.

Maximum power adjustment switch

Installing electrical vehicle chargers into older homes can be a challenge. With the Siemens VersiCharge, the EVSE power output can be adjusted to match facility capability. Increments range from a maximum power setting of 7.2 kW down to 1.8 kW.

Comfortable handling

The charging process starts as soon as the charging coupler is connected to the electric vehicle. A charging delay in twohour increments (2/4/6/8 hours) up to a maximum of 8 hours can be selected via the delay function. This allows charging with photovoltaic current or utilizing off-peak tariffs. LEDs display the current charging state. Additional LED indicators are at the top right and left of the enclosure for convenient indication of charging status from a distance.

Easy installation

The system-tested and CE-compliant VersiCharge charging unit is connected quickly and easily to a 230/400 V grid. A private installation requires an upstream installation of an RCCB and MCB to guarantee sufficient safety for people and assets. The RCCB type B is no longer needed for 5TT32011VR03 since it includes integrated 6 mA detection. The installer can optionally limit the current consumption when installing the VersiCharge charging unit and adapt the device to the electric installation conditions. An included mounting plate facilitates wall mounting.

Expanded communications, Metering and Controls

As smart grid appliances become more common, utility communications are a requirement. Electric vehicle charging is no different. Siemens VersiCharge SG charging devices offer the most complete communications offering available in residetial level EV charging gear. Built in Zigbee pods on all VersiCharge SG devices allows them to communicate with any Zigbee enabled device, including “smart” meters and the Siemens Solar Microinverter System. With expansion options for both Wi-Fi and cellular, the device is able to communicate regardless of the platform.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations for the Future:

The Siemens VersiCharge charging units come in 30 A model. In addition, each of the devices can be adjusted with an Amperage dial or via utility controlled amperage regulation (communications required, see below for details).

As battery technology continues to improve, battery charge capacity will increase. This means that the chargers designed for the EVs available today will not be able to deliver power fast enough to sufficiently charge the batteries of tomorrow. By offering adjustable, extended amperages, Siemens VersiCharge charging equipment is ready today for the cars of tomorrow.
