As the use of new energy vehicles continues to increase, usage problems also begin to increase. For example, there are many thunderstorms in summer. In thunderstorm weather, will electric vehicle charging piles leak electricity? Can tell you responsibly that there will be no leakage! Let's find out together.

Ⅰ. Waterproof design of electric vehicle charging pile

The waterproof working capability and minimum standard for outdoor charging infrastructure is IP56. That is to say, the charging facilities have grade 5 dustproof, anti-foreign body intrusion, grade 6 moisture-proof, and waterproof immersion, which means that the EV charging pile can be sprayed at any angle and has waterproof function, so the charging facilities will not have water ingress problems during light and medium rain.

There is no need to panic in the event of heavy rain. During the development and construction of charging service facilities, ground hardening and basic safety protection can be analyzed at the bottom of charging technical facilities, so that the electric vehicle charging pile body has a protection of 20-30 cm below. Water flooding capability.

Ⅱ. Anti-leakage device for electric vehicle charging pile

Electric vehicle charging piles will be installed with leakage protection devices. Once leakage is detected, it will automatically cut off the power supply and stop working.

Ⅲ. Lightning protection device for electric vehicle charging pile

In addition to the installation of dust-proof, waterproof, and anti-leakage devices, electric vehicle charging piles can also be installed with lightning protection devices to prevent enterprises from damaging equipment due to lightning strikes.

Although electric vehicle charging piles are equipped with certain protective devices, Neng Baoer reminds everyone that when it rains, it is recommended that you try not to use outdoor charging piles. If we must use it, we need to pay strict attention to the following points:

1. When parking, try to choose a place without water accumulation and high parking to avoid the phenomenon that the battery is soaked in water. If there is standing water in the charging service area, charging is prohibited.

2. Before charging connection, carefully check whether there is water or foreign matter on the side of the electric vehicle charging pile and the connector interface on the vehicle side. Be sure to clean or wipe it before connecting.

3. When holding the gun to move the learning process, be sure to ensure that the muzzle is facing down to prevent rainwater from splashing into the gun.

When the hood is opened, the car charging socket ensures that the socket is not exposed to rainwater, preventing rainwater from entering the socket. For the sake of safety, we recommend that you can operate the umbrella during the whole process of using the electric vehicle charging pile to avoid the exposure of key functional parts such as the charging gun and the charging port to the rain.

In the process of use, in the event of an emergency, the electric vehicle charging pile also has an [emergency stop button]. When the emergency stop button is pressed at the time of danger, the output switch can be cut off within 100 milliseconds to stop charging.
