Legrand has developed an outlet to charge your car: Green’UP. It is safe, easy to install and can be used as a regular outlet both indoors and outdoors.
Green’UP has been designed to fulfill the IEC 61851 regulation in both mode 1 and mode 2. The main differences are:
Mode 1: regular outlet. Your car is connected using the cable supplied with your car.
Mode 2: regular outled + control box. Thanks to it, your charge will be safer. Your car is connected with a single-phase or 3-phase socket.
When the car is plugged in, the outlet supplies the maximun amount of energy to charge your car as fast as possible meeting the safety measures.
The main drawback of this system is that your car must be compatible with it. And, nowadays, only Peugeot and Citroën cars work.
