The EV is not connected to zappi.
In this example the last charging session delivered 20.8kWh of energy
to the EV and 80% of that energy came from the solar panels.
The Zappi is waiting for sufficient surplus power from the PV
system. This screen will be shown in ECO+ mode as it is only in this
mode that charging will stop if there is not enough surplus power.
The house in the centre is straight-faced as grid electricity is being
used by the house (0.9kW in the example shown).
Enough surplus is available and zappi is about to charge the EV. A
timer is decremented and can be set in the charge settings (ECO+ mode only).
The zappi is waiting for the EV to respond; the EV is not ready to accept charge.
The charging session has been delayed by the EV because a scheduled charge has been set in the vehicle.
The zappi is paused for a few seconds in order to limit the start/stop frequency during ECO+ mode charging.
In this example the car is charging in ECO+ mode at 1.6kW, there is no import or export from the grid (0.0kW) and the EV battery has charged by 8.9kWh since the car started.
The EV is fully charged. The charge energy used during the last charge is displayed at the bottom right (20.0kWh in this case) and the 'green contribution' is also shown (40% in this example).
The zappi is performing a restart sequence. This may happen with some EVs that need to be 'woken-up' to start charging after a pause in the charge. Charge should start immediately afterwards, otherwise the “Charge Delayed” message will appear.
The zappi is about to stop the EV charging
The zappi is carrying out a check to make sure that the built in RCD and “PEN Fault” protection is working before starting to charge the car. zappi carries out this before every charge so there is no need to manually test the RCD protection.
