Can't get Ford to fix the issue? Mine was resolved by replacing the TCU.modeler wrote:Any idea which EVSE unit is program-able or mobile controllable on time and charge rate ?
(Honestly I couldn't get my FFE value charge to work - it always charge immediately after plug in - I tried many different ways.)
I want to have some sort of control remotely on start and stop time of my charge (e.g. 3AM start and 3 hr to stop at 6AM.) to avoid over charge.
And I also want to control the rate, I want slow charge rather than typical L2 charge rate. I understand Jxxxx protocol use pulse width to tell car how much it can draw, so it should be easy.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find such product now.
The eMotorWerks Juice Plug should do just that. Once it's in stock that is... loltriangles wrote:The simple solution is to use a timer on the outlet your EVSE is plugged into or build your own EVSE with a timer. If you want remote control of charging time and current then I hope you're an EE because you will have to build and develop this yourself. There are no products on the market that can do that.
Huh, I though all the juice plug does is record the kWh put into your car and upload it's status using your wifi to emotorwerks website for you to view. Guess I was wrong... Interesting....spirilis wrote:The eMotorWerks Juice Plug should do just that. Once it's in stock that is... lol
That certainly is a nice, and quite attractive, EVSE. However, as far as I can tell, it will only do part of what the OP wants. Charge scheduling would not be a problem but it looks like the max current draw is NOT adjustable. On OpenEVSE units, max current is adjustable via software in 2 amp increments and this can be done remotely via wifi on appropriately equipped units. JuiceBox units have similar capability with more polished remote access/apps etc. At least the old ones did - I wonder if UL listing required limiting the adjustability of max current?FiSh wrote:ChargePoint can do this (they also have a sale now)
