I had added a photo/step of using ferrules on the high current stranded wires before inserting them into the contactor. This is good practice for long term high current loads. That photo/step has since been removed.
Oddly mine stopped showing the address. Could have something to do with having it unplugged for a while when I moved the EVSE
Did you check on your WiFi access point that the EVSE is connected? Although the EVSE may have been given an address and displayed it during setup, it might not always stay connected depending on signal strength, location, etc.
2 pictures show the pilot, one in step 4 and another in step 10, although the latter is difficult to tell that it is the middle terminal of the upper 3 terminal block.
One of the connections I managed to get both the tinned wire and the MOV lead into the connector. For the other one, I elected to cut the tinned end off, strip it back a 1/4" and fit the strands around the MOV's lead, which I had inserted first. Spent 10 minutes before that trying to get both in. The tinned lead was just too big, and did that rather than heat up the iron and wick some off.
Either way, make sure to do a pull test on these, as well as every other connection you make.
I pinned it out and the header matches the order on the labeling. Still wondering why the silkscreen says GRN then next to the NC pin on the 6pin header.
The pic of the OpenEVSE board that has the 4 wired 6 pin header plugged in, that isn't correct per instruction, but is that intended to show the actual board connections and my first comment is incorrect?
I would check continuity from the Ground to the grounds on the 3 pin headers, but I don't have access to my meter tonight. Haven't powered the evse up yet, either.
