What is an IC-CPD?

IC-CPD stands for In Cord – Control and Protection Device. It is another way of describing a mode 2 charger

The box in the middle contains electronics to make sure that the EV is charged safely. This includes telling the EV that it can only consume a maximum of 8A. It also monitors for a good Earth connection, and any current leakage (RCD). Additional functionally may include remote control via an app, energy monitoring and a timer. 

Be careful that IC-CPDs meet WorkSafe Guidelines and New Zealand mains voltages. 

Below is a picture of IC-CPDs that JuicePoint used to sell. We stopped selling them for a number of reasons.
