Safe charging technology is a key element in the growing market for electric vehicles, and that safety is guaranteed by the AC/DC sensitive charge current interrupt detection module CCID 6/20 from Bender Inc. 

The module satisfies the latest international standards for safe charging of electric vehicles  (including UL 2231 and SAE J1772) and meets the requirements for ground fault sensors to avoid the inherent danger present where a vehicle battery (DC) is connected to a home power supply (AC).

A VAC/Bender CCID integrated into a charging cable (IC-CPD) or EV charger wall box simultaneously monitors all currents in phases and neutral conductors, sensing AC/DC fault currents for total piece of mind. 

Generally, AC/DC-sensitive ground fault sensors are used where direct current and alternating current circuits are directly connected and therefore AC/DC leakage currents can occur.  Ground fault currents can be caused by insulation faults such as defective cable insulation, and in the worst cases users can suffer a dangerous electric shock.

AC-only capable ground fault current breakers are usually installed in private households to identify and deactivate AC currents, but they cannot safely handle DC fault currents.

When an electric vehicle is being charged from a home power supply, a more costly AC/DC-capable ground fault current  breaker would be required to guarantee safety in the event of a DC fault current.

Customers can achieve all-current sensitivity and electrical safety with the VAC/Bender CCID integrated into a cable (IC-CPD) or EV charger wall box because it simultaneously monitors all currents in phases and neutral conductors sensing AC/DC fault currents.  

The CCID sensors activate automatic shut-off in the event of electrical faults. The ground fault currents monitored occur only in the event of electrical faults and are extremely low (mA), so precise measurement is critical.

The ultra-fast response time of the Bender sensor is also essential to maintain safety features. Curves for powering down are adjusted in the different versions to suit the requirements of each national or international standard or regulating authority.
