Some electric cars are put into a standby mode after some time without charging. Example: the car is connected to the EVSE, but charging is not enabled due to a charging rule. Later, when the charging rule is fulfilled and the car is in standby mode, charging does not start by itself.
We have no experience with cars put into standby mode yet. Therefore, we are currently gathering empirical data in order to support such a function in the future under certain circumstances.
We recommend to test if a car in standby mode "wakes up" if they under the menu item "cFos EVSE configuration" first "disable charging" and then disable the EVSE, i.e. turn off both switches. Now wait 30 seconds and switch both back on.
Does the car wake up?
Putting the car into standby mode can probably be done by setting the charge current to 0mA and waiting until the car is in standby mode, then setting it back to 16A.
We are very interested in your test results!
