Site Selection

The charger should be installed in a location suitable for the 25-foot output cable to extend to the electric vehicle’s charging port and which allows sufficient space for output cable storage in the cable hanger. The top of the wall mount bracket is recommended to be installed at a height of 50 inches above the finished floor (check local codes).

If installing the NEMA 14-50 plug version, ensure the charger location can accommodate a NEMA 14-50 receptacle. The NEMA 14-50 receptacle should be located no less than 24-26 inches from the ground. Consideration should be made to the NEMA 14-50 receptacle orientation (ground terminal in the upward ‘12 o’clock position’ or downward ‘6 o’clock position’). The NEMA 14-50 receptacle orientation will determine the NEMA 14-50 input cord’s installation aesthetics.

Ensure the height of the wall mount bracket and the NEMA 14-50 receptacle are coordinated so the NEMA 1450 plug seats into the NEMA 14-50 receptacle without cable tension or stress. If installing the hardwired version, ensure that the selected charger location is within reach of the site rated junction box using the supplied 3 feet of manufactured cable.

Wall Preparation

  1. Locate and remove the top mounting screw from the charger using the supplied Allen wrench.
  2. Remove the wall mount bracket from the charger by applying downward pressure on the wall mount bracket until the charger mounting screws unseat from the wall mount bracket keyhole slots.
  3. Store the charger and mounting screw in a safe place to avoid damage or loss.
  4. At the selected location, mark the center of the stud and place the wall-mount bracket on the wall.
  5. Using a level, ensure the wall-mount bracket is in an upright level position. Align center mounting holes with the center of the stud and mark the wall-mounting screws holes.
  6. Use mounting holes to secure the bracket to the wall using appropriate site-specific fasteners.

Wall Mounting (NEMA 14-50 Version)

  1. Locate the 3 mounting screws on the rear of the charger. Position them into the corresponding keyhole slots on the wall mount bracket. Slide downward until fully seated.
  2. Reinstall the top mounting screw using the supplied Allen wrench to secure the charger. The charger should feel secure after it is fully seated. If the charger can be easily moved then remove the charger, slightly tighten the three mounting screws on the rear of the charger and replace the charger on the bracket.
  3. Insert the NEMA 14-50 plug into the NEMA 14-50 receptacle. Ensure that the plug is fully seated into the receptacle.

Wall Mounting (Hardwired Version)

The hardwired version of the SemaConnect Series 4 EV Home Charger is manufactured with 3 feet of cable that has been listed by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) to the appropriate UL standards for the specified ampere ratings.

Ensure that the selected charger location is within reach of the site rated junction box using the supplied 3 feet of manufactured cable. # To sufficiently attach and tighten the 3/4” Liquid Tight Flexible Metal Conduit (LFMC) to the charger, the bottom plate must be removed. Place the charger face down on a safe surface to avoid damage. Grasp the outside of the charger with both hands, position thumbs on the inner edge of the protective lower cover and apply downward pressure on the cover to unseat it from the charging station. Store protective cover in a safe place to avoid damage or loss.

  1. Measure and cut 3/4” LFMC to sufficient length between the charger and site rated junction box. Attach and tighten the 3/4“ LFMC to the charger using the manufacturer-supplied 3/4“ LFMC connector. Re-install the protective cover.
  2. Locate the 3 mounting screws on the rear of the charger. Position them into the corresponding keyhole slots on the wall mount bracket. Slide downward until fully seated.
  3. Reinstall the top mounting screw using the supplied Allen wrench to secure the charger. The charger should feel secure after it is fully seated. If the charger can be easily moved then remove the charger, slightly tighten the 3 mounting screws on the rear of the charger and replace the charger on the bracket.
  4. Attach and tighten the 3/4“ LFMC to the site rated junction box. Connect the supplied black and red conductors to the 240-volt supply (ungrounded) conductors, and the supplied green conductor to the grounding conductor.

Install SemaConnect Series 4 EV Home Charger in accordance with all State, Local, and National Electric Codes.
