Home charge point
I'm working out a design for a simple home charge point to install at my home. In Ireland , homes are fed with 240v 63amps single phase. My onboard charger is 5kw so i need a 32 amp socket. I'm also planning to install 16amp and 13amp sockets protected by an rcd and housed in a metal ip rated enclosure. Can anyone think of what else I could or should include to make it as universal as possible?

There is a guy selling J1772 plugs on Ebay, that is the standard plug for the US and a few other countries now, part of that plug design is a low voltage square wave signal that is sent from the vehicle to the plug to tell the plug to power up, nice for out door locations and I think that signal generator came with one of the plug options that this person was selling.
