    Evening evening!

    Been giving drawings for some flats which also need 3x ev charging points outside
    no spec given atall as yet!

    Just wanting to get clued up before hand

    so for something like this- Rolec EV Charging IEC WallPod 16A HomeCharge EVWP2010 | RS Electrical Supplies - http://www.rselectricalsupplies.co.uk/rolec-ev-charging-iec-wallpod-16a-homecharge-evwp2010_9486

    simply just a 16a SWA radial on a mcb as the unit has the built in rcd (is it A type?)
    if the system is TN- then am i right in thinking I need a rod for each of the chargers

    cheers for any insight

    I would wait before commenting until you get hold of the specification for these units.

    See Section 722 of BS7671, the IET also have the Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment.

    DITTO !
    I would look into it carefully first
    especially the amount of power used 16 A seems a little light on !

    Believe its with PME supply, where TT is suggested, albeit there's a get out of jail card in reg 722.411.4.1!

    If I was doing some, I would purchase and read the COP, as westward suggested.

    are you referring to 722.411.4.1iii ?
    is this a 'a type rcd'?

    Nope not exactly;

    722.411.4.1, 'The requirements of this regulation need not be applied for charging point at a dwelling, if none of (i), (ii) or (iii) is reasonably practicable'.

    Seem to remember there was another thread on this subject, not so long ago, where that sentenced was debated back and forth. I still don't understand it.

    As said, never done one before, but if I did, think I would obtain that COP and have a good read.
