Pico EV Charger
Pico is a MID-certified charging station with integrated cellular and WiFi interface for the transmission of real-time data. The charging station synchronizes the measured values automatically and encrypted into the smart-me cloud. The station can be integrated into the eCarUp backend and has static and dynamic load management. The smart-me portal can be used to further process the data. Alternatively, they can be exported and processed in third-party systems via our open interface.
Pico Connectors and Dimensions
L1: Phase 1
L2: Phase 2
L3: Phase 3
N: Neutral conductor / Neutral conductor
PE: Protective earth
The protective earth conductor should be attached to the upper connection screw so that the stand is earthed directly together with the station.
The product can only be operated in 3-phase star connection or 1-phase!
The cables can be fed in and out of Pico at 5 points.
Two at the top, two at the bottom and one through the back plate.
When mounting through the back plate, a hole with a diameter of 25-26mm must be drilled.
Details on mounting the stand can be found in the installation instructions in the downloads.
Load shedding (external inputs)
Load shedding can also be implemented using only one available signal.
For the configuration from no charge to maximum charge power, the signal is wired to IN1 and IN2 as well as COM.
For the configuration from 6A minimum power to maximum charging power, the signal must only be wired to IN2 as well as COM.
COM is the neutral conductor, IN1 and IN2 must be provided with a voltage at the ON signal. IN1 and IN2 do not generate voltage, this must be provided externally.
The load shedding can either be wired to all Picos or minimally to one from each load group.
This function also works in case of no internet connection.
Alternatively, the load shedding can also be done via the IF/THEN actions and Pico control.

The safety instructions must be observed under all circumstances:
Installation, maintenance, repair, commissioning:
Read the entire manual carefully before installing and operating the product.
Danger to life due to high electrical voltage. Never make any changes to components, software or connecting cables without being de-energised. Therefore, remove the appropriate fuses and store them in such a way that other persons cannot reinsert them unnoticed.
The product may only be installed, repaired or maintained by an authorised electrician. All applicable local, regional and national regulations for electrical installations must be observed.
The product requires a serial RCD type-A to comply with national installation standards.
Installation must not be carried out near flammable, explosive media, flooded areas (underground car park) or areas where there is a risk of flowing water.
The product must be installed in a permanent location. The connections on the pico and back plate are designed for a limited number of mating cycles.
The product must be installed on a wall or structure with sufficient load-bearing capacity.
The terminals in the backplate are live when the circuit is closed and must never be brought into direct contact or into contact with anything other than the Pico electronics.
Depending on the type of installation, approvals may be required before installation, e.g. if the house connection is increased.
The charging station must be registered with the grid operator.
The screws of the cable connections should be tightened with a torque of 3 Nm. The maximum diameter of the cable with ferrule is 6.5mm.
