Another problem with the unit is received is that one of the holes on the body of the plastic enclosure is not tapped and I can not tighten the screw more than 2 turns. As a result, one of the corners is not water tight.
1) The picture shown in Step 7 shows the AC input lines connected directly to the power inlet side of the fuse block but the schematic diagram shows the AC input connected to protected side of the fuse block.
2) The schematic shows a relay coil but there wasn't one included in the kit.
3) The instructions in Step 8 say to connect the J1772 pilot wire to the Circuit board but there are no detailed instructions on how to do so. The pilot lead from the J1772 cable did not fit the connector on the circuit board. I trimmed a few of the stands on the pilot cable to make it fit. I don't know if that is the best technique.
4) There a number of errors, omissions and inconsistencies in these directions. it would be helpful of the author and the manufacturer provided new accurate instructions with updated pictures, more detailed information as to the AC power connections and Dual AC options and shipped a mounting plate with the proper holes.
Overall I am very dissatisfied with this kit.
1) The circuit board provided did not line up with the holes on the mounting plate. I had to drill two new holes. I aligned the circuit board to the two holes closest to the terminal block and marked two new holes closet to the fuse block.
2) The item description says this EVSE will work with 120V or 240V. I am assuming it is auto sensing and we will need to build an adapter cable to accommodate either 120V or 240V.
3) the write up and instructions have us mounting the LED close to the Gear symbol on the Open EVSE logo but there is a mark round detent in the exact middle of the cover. it looks like this might be a better place. there seems to be plenty of clearnace betwwen the cover and the components beneath it. is this a good place to mount the LED?
