Mains socket and circuit breaker
The reason why we ask you in our configurator about the amperage of the circuit breaker to which circuit you plan to connect your new home charging station (wallbox) EVmate, is that the power level of the circuit breaker defines the maximum possible electrical charging power. This can be higher than you need and will not limit you in any way. Or, on the contrary, it would not be sufficient, and in that case, everything would not work as intended. If your car allows home charging with a higher wattage level than your electrical installation is designed for, you have two options - either to customize your electric installation with the likely need to increase the power supply to your home or to choose a lower charging power. We will choose the best possible combination for you according to your parameters.
Let's take an example. You own a Renault Zoe equipped with an onboard triple-phase charger 3x32A / 22kW, but the electric circuit to which you will connect your new wallbox is protected by a 3x25A circuit breaker. A 22kW charger would put more strain on your existing electrical wiring than it would be able to provide in the long term, and the circuit breaker would "be falling". Our configurator will choose a 3x25A / 17.3kW charging station based on your actual parameters.
In comparison, if the Zoe were equipped with a 41kWh battery, the full charging would theoretically take about ½ hours longer compared to the best fitting combination.
You own a Renault Zoe equipped with an on-board three-phase charger 3x32A / 22kW, but the circuit to which you will connect your new wallbox is protected by a 3x25A circuit breaker. A charger with an output of 22kW would required more than your existing electrical circuit would be able to provide in the long run, and a circuit breaker, or the main house circuit breaker would "fall" and break the electricity supply. Our configurator will select a charging station with a power of 3x25A / 17.3kW for you, based on the actual parameters entered by you.
For comparison - if the Zoe were equipped with a battery with a capacity of 41 kWh, compared to the previous parameters, a full charge would theoretically take about ½ hours longer.
