Process for the certification and testing of Electric Vehicle chargers

21 Sep 2020 view in spanishspanish

Electrical Vehicle charging system is a technology that has been growing up during the last years. CERE’s electric laboratory has developed a section with expert technicians in this field. We have already tested the product for Spanish manufacturers, for the European and North American markets.

The necessary steps for the product certification and testing are:

  • IEC project:
    • EMC testing:
      • IEC 61851-21-2:2018 Electric vehicle conductive charging system - Part 21-2: Electric vehicle requirements for conductive connection to an AC/DC supply - EMC requirements for off board electric vehicle charging systems.
    • Safety testing:
      • IEC 61851-1:2017 Electric vehicle conductive charging system - Part 1: General requirements.
    • Own communication tests:
      • IEC 61851-23:2014 Electric vehicle conductive charging system - Part 23: DC electric vehicle charging station
      • IEC 61851-24:2014 Electric vehicle conductive charging system - Part 24: Digital communication between a d.c. EV charging station and an electric vehicle for control of d.c. charging
  • USA project
    • Safety testing:
      • UL 2202:2012 Standard for Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging System Equipment
      • UL 2594:2016 / CSA C22.2 NO. 280 / NMX-J-677-ANCE Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment. (Incluye requisitos para USA, CAN y México)

CERE is accredited as a testing laboratory and certification body for the electric vehicle charger solution, both nationally and internationally, being accredited for the IEC safety standard:

  • IEC 61851-1:2017

Under IAF, ILAC and CB scheme (CBTL and NCB)

CERE is also the only entity in Spain to provide a solution for the North American market thanks to its accreditation for UL standards:

  • UL 2202:2012 Standard for Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging System Equipment
  • UL 2594:2016 / CSA C22.2 NO. 280 / NMX-J-677-ANCE
