Enova 90kw Inverter Plug

Hi, has anyone got a plug and cable, to fit the power input to the Enova 90kw inverter, from the battery pack ? The plug has a 2 large pin sockets (+ 6 small sockets for instrumentation) and is bayonet locking.
If anyone has one for sale will you please let me know ?

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy-b, I have been doing a bit more research into this subject and, it seems that the 3 charger idea will work. I've just come across this website (link below) which shows (better than I have been doing) what I meant about a 4 wire 3 phase (star) system This is an extract: "If a balanced ...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy-b, Thank you for your almost comprehensive reply. I have been a Mechanical Engineer, man and boy for over 55 years and, yes, I do understand 3ph distribution, balanced and rotating fields and so on... and yes, I do know the difference between an OBC and EVSE. However, I was not sure of the...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy-b, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, it was lazy using abbreviations. EVSE - the charge point attached to my house or the ones at service stations etc. (electric vehicle supply equipment). OBC - the battery pack charger fitted on-board my vehicle, connected to the battery pack at one end and to...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy, Thanks for your reply. So.... from this I get that it's difficult to get an OBC that will will accommodate the available range of evse points. If I have an OBC that will use my 1ph evse at home, I'm stuck with only that ? I've been looking at chinese OBCs, but not quite sure what I'm gett...

Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi everyone, Sorry if this a really dim question, but I don't know how the system works. I am considering buying an on-board charger for my (just started) conversion - with, hopefully, a 40kwh battery pack. I have a wall mounted evse (7kw max ?) at home, but want to use motorway service ones (3 phas...

Re: ENOVA 12v Battery Charger

Hi Peter, My car (B200) definitely has canbus - that's what worries me. The ECU might be redundant, but a lot of safety bits feed into it, so have got to keep it around. Yes I'm using the power side of the enova system but using Johannes Heubner's kit to drive it. Interesting to find out about signa...
