Posted By Topic: Standart for wiring an electric car.

Dec 05 2018 19:17

Hi I am looking for a standard for wiring an electric car. Does one exist?

Google: "electric vehicle standards", and you should find this link high in the listings:

That's the International Standards organisation, and they list several; for various aspects.

IEC has a draft Standard for EV charging

Not aware of any AS/NZS; fairly sure there aren't any

The IEC standard for EV charging is IEC 60364 AND iec 60364-7-722.

Also IEC 61851 is also required.

The cheapest way to the basic info required is the "Electric vehicle charging guidelines" published by Worksafe NZ. Which is currently not cited by the ESR 2010 but is issued for use in NZ until an ESR 2010 amendment is published by Worksafe NZ.
