Installation steps



1. Install the Charger Case

2. Route Wiring Through Charger Case

3. Connect the AC Power Supply Cable

4. Install the Charge Controller

5. Install the Ethernet Cable (Optional)

6. Install the Front Panel

⚠ Before installation ensure that the power supply cable is disconnected.

Ensure a type A RCD is installed on the supply line of the VOOL Charger

(4 pole, 40A, 30mA for 22kW and 4 pole 25A, 30mA for 11 kW).

Make sure to use proper dimension circuit breakers.

For an 11 kW charger at least 16 (3 pole) circuit breaker with at least

B-type characteristics and for a 22 kW at least 32A (3 pole) circuit

breaker with at least B-type characteristics.




Step 1: Install the Charger Case

• 1.1 Position the charger casing against the wall and use it as a template to mark the hole locations if the wall needs to be drilled first.

• 1.2 Use a level to make sure that the casing is aligned evenly.

• 1.3 If needed - drill the mounting holes and insert the plugs for the mounting holes


Step 2: Route Wiring Through Charger Case

The cable can be inserted directly through the bottom, or through the top and routed behind the casing and inserted in the bottom (2.1). If the cable is connected from the top of the charger (2.2), cut or break away the top part of the casing as indicated (2.3). For top installation bend the cable to a hook with an inner diameter of approximately 60 mm while making sure not to damage the outer insulation of the cable if using hard tools such as pliers to hold the cable.

The cable can be inserted directly through the bottom, or through the top and routed behind the casing and inserted through the same bottom opening.


Step 2: Route Wiring Through Charger Case

Before inserting the cable into the charger case, strip the end of the outer insulation of the cable by 400 mm. If the cable is being routed through the top and inserted in the bottom, the wire should run in the dedicated tunnel on the back side of the charger casing. Ensure that there is a sufficient length of cable for installation, depending on the installation direction (top or bottom).


Step 2: Route Wiring Through Charger Case

• Cut a hole into the larger grommet that comes with the charger based on the cable size.

• Fix the grommet on the charger case.

• Insert the cable into the charger case through the grommet before fastening the charger case to the wall.

• Fix the charger case onto the wall.

• Use the cable stopper to fix the cable inside the case.

• Secure the cable with strain relief.

• Install 2 screws for strain relief.

• Pay attention to leave about 5-10mm of cable insulation above the cable stopper.



Step 3: Connect the AC Power Supply Cable

For the VOOL Charger you can use a single-phase or a three-phase AC power supply cable. The main differences between single-phase and three-phase AC power supply cable lie in the number of conductors, voltage levels, and power distribution methods. Three-phase power system can operate at higher voltage levels, the power is distributed in a balanced manner across the three conductors, and the current power supply is more constant and smoother. Three-phase power is used when there is higher electricity demand.

Connect the AC Input Cable - Single-Phase Power

• Unscrew the screw.

• For solid cable, enter cable directly into the terminal block.

• For stranded cable use ferrules.

• Insert the cable connector into the terminal bloc.

• Connect the following wires:

• Earthing wire

• Neutral wire

• AC input wire single-phase

• Tighten the screws.


Step 3: Connect the AC Power Supply Cable

• Unscrew the screw.

• For solid cable enter cable directly into the terminal block.

• For stranded cable use ferrules.

• Insert the cable connector into the terminal block.

Connect the following wires:

Earthing wire

Neutral wire (TN)

L1

L2

L3

• Tighten the screws.


Step 4: Install the Charge Controller

*If the charger is going to be installed without the charge controller, then skip this step and put the blind in the cable plug hole, and push the front panel with slight force on top of the charger.



• Connect the terminal block to charge the controller’s left-side socket.

• Connect the charging cable that comes pre-equipped with the terminal block to the right-side socket on the charge controller. If applicable connect the Ethernet cable(s) to the Ethernet socket(s).

• Ensure that all cables and connections are securely plugged in.

• Push the charge controller into the charger case. Listen for the click and make sure the controller is fixed properly.


Step 5: Plug in the Ethernet Cable (Optional)

The Ethernet cable is used for a local area network. It transmits data between different devices. For example, if you want to connect the charger to the VOOL Load Managment Controller (LMC) or with other chargers, you can install an Ethernet cable to speed up the data transmission process. This ensures reliable network connectivity and high-speed data transfer. Ethernet cables have RJ-45 connectors on both ends.

• Use the smaller holes on the charger case and smaller grommets for the Ethernet cable.

• If your charger is connected to the VOOL LMC or the VOOL LMC plus chargers, connect the Ethernet cable to sockets on the top of the charge controller.

• If the charger is only connected to the LMC, connect the cable to the left-side Ethernet socket.

• If the charger is connected to the LMC and other chargers then use the right-side side Ethernet socket to connect to the next charger in line.


Step 6: Plug in the Charge Controller Lid

6.1 Plug in the small wire from the charger cable into the socket found under the charge controller lid PCB board.


6.2 Follow the steps below to connect the charge controller lid.


Step 7: Snap on the Front Panel

The expansion board is located inside the cover for the charge controller and will be used to connect the front panel power and communication. Check that the front panel lights up in white. If any other color is displayed or there is no visible light at all, please refer to the troubleshooting section.
