1 – Positioning the Hypervolt Home
We advise that this should be the first action to be completed on-site. The installer should consult the customer and establish their preferred installation location. This should take into consideration the cable length (distance to the vehicle being charged), risk of vehicle impact and obstruction of access.
Keep in mind that the customer may change their mind with regards to the charger location once into place and it is desirable this happens prior to routing any of the cables.
The Hypervolt Home 2.0 can be fitted indoors or outdoors.
2 – Preparing the Hypervolt Unit
In order to install the Hypervolt unit, you will need access to the main wiring terminal inside the device. Place the unit on a secure surface and using a T20 Security Torx screwdriver, remove the 4 off screws (2 on each side) which secure the front cover in place.
Remove the top cover. Simply slide it away from the rest of the unit. There should be almost no resistance in doing so.
Place the top cover and its screws somewhere safe.
Next, carefully disconnect the connector at the back of the LED panel, pop out the LED assembly from its side slots and place it somewhere safe.
3 – Securing the Hypervolt on the wall
Using the drilling template and integrated spirit level provided in your kit, drill the holes to an appropriate length and diameter suitable for the fixing you are going to use.
Screw in the top 2 mounting screws into their holes. Leave approximately 7-8mm from the surface of the wall. Refer to Diagram 5.
Next, position the Hypervolt and hang it onto the 2 mounting points.
Double-check that the bottom 2 mounting holes are well aligned and insert the last 2 screws. The unit should now be safely in place.
You do not need to fit the top cover back on yet, as you will need access to the wiring terminals later on. However, you may wish to place the cover on for protecting the insides of the charger from dust and other debris during the rest of the installation.
At this stage, confirm with the customer they are happy with the location and height of the unit. Make sure you do this prior to routing any cables as customers may change their mind!
4 – Electrical Wiring
The next step is to complete the electrical connections between the distribution panel and the Hypervolt Home device. Diagram 8 is provided as a reference for a typical installation diagram for the charging station. The installation should be done in accordance with the applicable local electrical regulations.
Next, proceed to make the electrical connections inside the Hypervolt device. Refer to Diagram 9 to identify the cable entry location and the power input connector inside the unit. All of the cables that are to be connected into the supply terminals should have their insulation stripped back 12-15mm and have suitable ferrules crimped over in order to ensure the best electrical connection possible.
Make sure you perform an adequate pull test at the unit electrical terminal to confirm the connection is acceptable. The Hypervolt Home 2.0 incorporates an automatic thermal-based detection mechanism for poor power input connections.
You should perform all required electrical tests at this stage.
5 – Finishing Off
Insert the LED panel back into its location. Ensure it clicks properly into place and it is not miss-aligned. Lastly, place the top cover back onto the unit and secure using the 4 off screws. Take care to avoid cross-threading during this process, as the water-tightness of the unit and its seals rely on these 4 screws being into place.
