Installation

Anywhere in New Zealand
PRE-INSTALLATON CHECK

We offer a no-obligation check of your residential or commercial site to see what types of EV charger it can support. This check costs $155 including GST; however it will be deducted from your final invoice if you proceed with installation of a charger sourced from Chargemaster. This service extends to public electric car charging stations (different fees apply).

Following the site check, we can recommend, supply and arrange installation of the most appropriate electric car fast charging unit for your site and budget.

All installations of car charging systems are backed up with a 24/7 repair and maintenance service provided by our nationwide electrical partners Laser Electrical.
The charger installed at your site comes with a manufacturer’s warranty.

Compliance guaranteed

The Laser Electrical technicians we use follow EV installation guidelines precisely to ensure full compliance with New Zealand regulations.

Every charging station we sell comes with a copy of the SDoc (Supplier Declaration of Conformity), which provides assurance that the EVSE (Electric Vehicle Service Equipment) is suitable for use within New Zealand.

  • Limited to 3.7kW (16A) in residential use or 7.4kW (32A) for industrial
Mode 3: Specific socket on a dedicated circuit
  • AC Charging
  • Control, communications and protection functions incorporated in the charge point (EVSE)
  • Wide range of charging: 3.7kW to 43kW
Mode 4: Direct current (DC) connection for fast recharging
  • DC Charging
  • Option for either CHAdeMO or CCS
  • For public and commercial charging applications
  • Wide range of charging capabilities – over 150kW

PREPARING FOR A PRE-INSTALLATION CHECK

When you want to install a private or public charging station, we strongly recommend a pre- installation check to establish existing electricity usage, electricity connection capacity and future EV charging needs. Our installation partner Laser Electrical conducts these checks on our behalf and the cost ($155 including GST) is deducted from your invoice, should you choose to go ahead.


Before your pre-installation check, it’s good to think about:


• How many chargers do you want to install?

• How many EVs will be charging at your premises at any given time?

• What type and size of the chargers do you hope to install? See our product range.


If the check reveals insufficient electrical capacity, Laser Electrical can provide a quote to upgrade your electrical system. Or they may recommend the use of Smart Chargers.


Our EV charger installations comply with New Zealand WorkSafe’s guidelines, which are:


• Under no circumstance may an individual install a charging station unless they are licensed and competent to do so.

• Depending on the existing infrastructure, the installation may also require electrical works by a certified electrician or electrical engineer. A competent electrician or electrical engineer will be able to advise you on what is required.

• EVSE products are required by law to comply with New Zealand’s Electrical Safety Regulations and Standards (IEC 61851-1 for AC and DC + IEC 61851-23 for DC).
