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?

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the ammeter goes into the red and reads 2000 Amps, that's bad.

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.
