My understanding is that the EVSE board is in sleep when the charger is not plugged into the vehicle connector. How does the EVSE board wake up when the Charger is plugged in? Also, does the EVSE board monitor proximity line with the vehicle?
OpenEVSE is only in Sleep mode if a charge timer is set. It will wake up as soon as the time window occurs.
OpenEVSE does not monitor proximity as the charging station has no role for proximity events.
Thanks for your response Chris.
So, even if the charger is not plugged in, the EVSE board always has power. Is that right?
Also, does this imply that the pilot line on the Charger plug always has a constant 12V or in other words, the pilot line on the Charger plug always has power?
Got it! Thanks for the clarification Chris. Appreciate it :-)
It is not likely a blown fuse. If the fuse is blown nothing will happen.
Are there any messages on the LCD? Can you post pictures of your wiring?
