To get the best possible WiFi and EaseeLink™ signal, the placement of your charger is important.
Indoor Installation Locations
Inside the fuse cabinet
The Equalizer can be placed inside the fuse cabinet. In most cases, this will work fine as long as the EaseeLink™ radio signal reaches the chargers or the Equalizer and charger is on the same WiFi.
On the fuse cabinet door
If the EaseeLink™ radio signal is weak we suggest placing the Equalizer on the outside of the fuse cabinet using the magnetic backside. The Equalizer cable is flat and should be possible to feed through under the fuse cabinet door.
Wall-mounted, closer to the Easee Chargers
Alternatively, the Equalizer can be attached to a wall using the wall-mount in the box. In the illustration above the Equalizer is placed right next to the fuse cabinet, but it's possible to extend the cable.
- The maximum distance between the modbus and HAN is 200 meters.
- The maximum distance between the modbus and P1 is 200 meters.
- The maximum distance between the smartmeter and HAN is 200 meters.
- The maximum distance between the smartmeter and P1 is 15 meters.
This maximum distance will be shorter for certain smartmeters.
Outdoors - inside grid supply cabinet
In some cases, your electricity meter may be placed in an outdoor grid supply cabinet. In cases like this, there should be piping from the cabinet down to your indoor fuse cabinet. Then it is possible to install the Equalizer indoors using a standard ethernet extension cable from the HAN port outdoors to a female adapter indoors.
However, if cable trunking has not been established, then the Equalizer must be installed inside the outdoor grid supply cabinet outdoors.
The Equalizer is not designed to be placed outdoors and must be installed within a weather-tight cabinet if placed outdoors.
