Installation of Dynamic Recharge Control – Trydan

This is the manual for the installation of the Dynamic Recharge Control in Trydan.

The dynamic recharge control is the device that allows to balance the power of the e-Charger with the extra power of the house or the photovoltaic integration. 

The device, which from now on will be called “Slave”, enables the measurement of these consumptions. This will allow the e-Charger to know in real time the power demanded (or energy generated in case of contribution of renewable energies) in order to use it to its advantage through its algorithm. 

The Trydan e-Charger comes with a dynamic recharge control (V2C 1.0 version is currently on the market, and V2C 2.0 version is being launched), as well as a clamp for reading consumption. 

If the dynamic recharge control system is to be done wirelessly through other devices compatible with your Trydan e-Charger (Huawei inverters, Solax, Kostal, Shelly…) you will have to follow the manual indicated for each of the devices. 

V2C Slave 1.0

The V2C 1.0 slave is the 1.0 version of the slave created by V2C, to allow considerable cost savings. The RS485 Modbus communication allows sending data digitally over distances of more than 2 km. This slave allows the input of 3 toroidals, enabling the measurement of single-phase, three-phase or single-phase photovoltaic energy. The communication is easily provided through an RJ45 connector.

V2C Slave 2.0

The V2C 2.0 slave is the 2.0 version that improves the performance of the V2C 1.0 slave. It is a smaller product, and allows the reading of 6 channels at the same time (allowing the reading of three-phase photovoltaic installations), as well as knowing the direction of the current.

Clamp connection

Esclavo V2C 1.0

For single-phase installations, the toroidal (clamp) should read the total consumption of the dwelling, including the recharge point. If the installation is single-phase, the toroidal clamp must be installed in the house connection or, otherwise, in communal garages in the cable coming from the meter..

It is important that the total consumption of the house, including the recharge point itself, passes through the clamp.

Locate the phase that supplies the total installation which normally comes from the meter. This will be gray, black or brown. If it is three-phase it will have all 3. Release the sensor and fit it around the power cable. Close the clip to hold it firmly in place.

For three-phase installations do exactly the same but with all 3 phases.

Communication between the slave and the e-Charger

Communication is performed via an 8-wire data cable, which is crimped in parallel with an RJ45 connector on each side. Slaves do not require power supply. The slave has an LED to indicate whether it is connected correctly. Both the slave and the e-Charger have a corresponding RJ45 input. The device has no interference if the cable is connected to the electrical cable of the installation, however, Category 6 is recommended.

You can use any standard you consider, although it is mandatory that the same standard is used in both sites, creating a parallel connection. 

Configuration of the e-Charger to activate dynamic recharge control

Through the V2C Cloud App

Dynamic control can be implemented either via Bluetooth (only in available equipment) or WiFi, for which you must access the e-Charger through the application and enter the configuration section.

Once in the e-Charger configuration, select Dynamic Recharge Control.

By selecting the button to activate dynamic recharge control, the device remains activated.

In the meter section you select the meter you have. The meter must be installed by your installer and there are several versions as well as direct integration with several photovoltaic inverters connected to the same Wi-Fi. Select the one you have available, as well as the type of installation you have, and the recharge point will restart.
