The Siemens VersiCharge line of Electric Vehicle Charging systems is the industry’s most flexible and versatile offering. These Level 2 (240 VAC) charging stations offer unparalleled usability, safety, energy management, and affordability. Read below for details on the offering and how these devices can improve your electric vehicle experience.
In a research study for the best Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations conducted by The Wirecutter, part of The New York Times Company, Siemens VersiCharge was found to be the most convenient and easy to use and powerful enough to quickly charge most EVs. It was recommended as the best Electric Vehicle Charging Station at home for EV owners.
The Charging Solutions and Incentives Program provides rebates towards the cost of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and provides support services for planning and installing EV chargers.
The BC government offers:
*Includes duplexes and townhomes with private garages. BC Hydro customers can apply for a limited-time matching rebate up to $350.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
