The FEV100 Electric Vehicle Charging Station Test Adapter from Fluke simulates the presence of an EV.

2022 NED Innovation Award Winner

The FEV100 Electric Vehicle Charging Station Test Adapter tests the safety and performance of level 1 or level 2 electric vehicle AC charging stations (EVSEs) with type 1 connectors.


One of the challenges of testing EVSEs is that they traditionally have required an electric vehicle (EV) to be connected before it will fully operate—which means every technician must drive an EV to perform certain tests. The adapter simulates the presence of an EV, allowing technicians to test the charging station in combination with appropriate test instruments, such as digital multimeters and ScopeMeters.


Compliant with the SAE J1772 standards for North American charging stations, the adapter allows a technician to verify that after installation, a charger can communicate and deliver power to vehicles. The FEV100 Kit includes the Fluke FEV100/BASIC Test Adapter, FEV-COM/TY1 Type 1 Connector and Cable, and a soft carrying case.

  • Check protective earth for correct wiring and functioning with the PE pre-test feature. 
  • Perform GFCI troubleshooting of EVSE and verify operation within safety standards. 
  • Test charging states of EVSE with CP state simulation. 
  • Verify charging voltage and maximum available current using a multimeter.
  • SAE J1772 compliant to North American standards.
