The "Home Install Spec Sheet" was updated on 11/17. This time the latest version is on the Connected Charge Station page on parts.ford.com and not yet on the main ford.com page.(This discussion should be in the Charging subforum.)
Ford has an updated charger information sheet. This is the 2-page document that we are supposed to share with our electricians.
The link from the Connected Charge Station page on parts.ford.com is still out of date (revised 8/31/2020). The latest version (10/13/2020) is available here, and attached.
The 10/13/2020 revision has a few differences from the 8/31/2020 version:
- Pages are shuffled such that the Mobile Charger appears first, Connected Charge Station last.
- 20 miles of range added per charging hour, instead of 21 miles, when charging an ER RWD with the mobile charger at its full power on a 40 or 50 amp, 240 volt circuit.
- IMPORTANT: With the Connected Charge Station, the circuit should be protected by a non-GFCI breaker since the EVSE has an internal GFCI and false tripping will occur.
Changes compared to the 10/13 doc:
- some explainer/marketing blurbs added about how the Connected Charge Station is up to 10x faster than charging from a standard wall outlet
- a footnote added to explain the testing conditions of the above claim
- an extraneous/unrelated footnote was removed from page 1
The recommendation for a 50A GFCI is still present for the Ford Mobile Charger. To me, this is in conflict with page 159 of the owner's manual touts this built-in safety feature of the mobile charger:
GFCI Protection: The charger is equipped with a Ground Fault Circuit Interruption (GFCI) reaction system to protect against electric shock. If the charger module detects an output ground fault, it will shut down power to the output cable and illuminate the RED indicator.
