The Hypervolt ALM has been designed with ease of installation in mind. Its lightning-fast reaction time to overload currents coupled with the fact that Hypervolt records the power and energy from the CT means you will improve on the safety of your installation while gaining insights into the energy usage of the property.
How it works
The Hypervolt works using a wired CT sensor which the installer must clip over the main incoming power feed into the property. The Hypervolt CT is bidirectional meaning that the Hypervolt is able to differentiate between export and import powers respectively.
Your property will have a maximum allowed total power consumption that can be configured inside your Hypervolt. Once installed and configured, the charger monitors this consumption in real-time. In the event that charging would cause you to exceed the pre-set limit, we will then reduce the EV charging rate in order to protect your electrical wiring and avoid blowing the fuse in your meter whilst continuing to charge your vehicle.
Wiring and setting up
Connect the CT to the internal 2-pole signal connector provided inside the Hypervolt.
Locate the rotary switch. It is situated adjacent to the CT connector you have plugged the CT into.
Use the following table to select the switch position which matches your requirements for the installation. Note: Each installation is different; hence the settings will differ from site to site.
