Since they utilize 240 Volts of electricity, which has a faster charging time as a big advantage, this level does require specific installation procedures that are upgraded from the standard wall outlet only provides 120 volts. The volts run from the breaker panel to the charging location. A “double-pole” circuit breaker is attached to two 120-volt buses at once using a 4-strand cable to double the circuit voltage to 240 volts. Along with the additional wiring, homeowners often need to the replace the breaker box entirely in order to accommodate a compatible interface. The professionals will ensure that it is properly insulated and secured to prevent any damage to your electrical systems as well as ensure the details of the 4-strand cable installation are done, particularly if it is being installed outdoors at any point. For the final step of installation, the location of the charging unit is mounted where you want the vehicle to be charged where then the 240-volt cable is attached. The electricity doesn’t through until it senses that your charger is connected to your car’s charging port because the charging unit is a safe holding location for the charge current as well.
