Prism Solar single-phase shares the same basic characteristics with the other Prism products. Different models differ in the type of power supply (single-phase or three-phase).
Prism Solar single-phase – technical features:
It is suitable for any single-phase meter, of any power.
This means that it can also be connected to electric meters with lower power (e.g 3kW), so it will still allow the management of the charge of an electric car, obviously, only up to the maximum power supplied by the meter. But if you decide to boost the power of the electric-meter, your Prism Solar will already be able to handle the new amount of power.
It automatically regulates the consumption to avoid disconnection from the grid (blackouts at home).
Regardless of the electric-meter installed, single-phase Prism Solar automatically regulates the power provided to the car, measuring the energy absorbed by the rest of the house. In this way, the electric-meter does not have to intervene because of overloads caused by the charge of your electric car.Prism will never leave you without electricity at home; a load-balancing sensor is supplied with Prism.
It uses the energy produced by a solar system to recharge the car.
If you have a photovoltaic system you already know that the energy that it produces in excess is sent to the electricity grid. Single-phase Prism Solar can detect this surplus production and use it to charge your car instead of giving it away to the grid.
It is equipped with a 5mt Type2 connector cable.
Type 2 connectors are the standard in Europe. Meaning: no compatibility problems;
It can be managed with a smartphone, a computer and/or the cloud.
Prism has to be connected to the internet via Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi (if the Wi-Fi signal can reach the space where Prism is installed). And even if Prism cannot be connected to the internet, it is always possible to configure it and use to its internal Wi-Fi.
It works as a Hotspot for the Wi-Fi network.
It is possible to use Prism as a Hotspot when Prism is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable. It is useful to update the firmware of the car while it is recharging.
It includes an RFID reader under the front cover.
It also comes with two RFID keys to be used in order to start the charge in situations when it is not possible (or desired) for it to start automatically.
It is already equipped with a RCM (Residual Current Monitor).
It is not necessary to add a protection for AC/DC current while installing Prism since it already has it. It ensures maximum safety and minimizes installation costs.
It can be installed outdoors and is not afraid of contact with water.
Like all components in the Prism range, the loader can be installed outdoors. Prism does not fear exposure to liquid intrusion and/or solid particles (such as dust).
This is thanks to a specially designed cover design. In fact, the body of the cover is closed by as many as 12 screws, protecting the most sensitive electronic parts.
The IP65 rating indicates that the device is fully protected against the ingress of dust, sand and generally any small solid body, as well as against strong jets of water.
