Technical requirements for the connection of stationary switch and control boxes, energy meter connection stacks, telecommunication facilities, and charging stations for electric vehicles
This VDE application guide applies to junction boxes which are installed outside buildings and single-phase or three-phase connected to the public low-voltage supply system. It applies to stationary switch and control boxes and energy meter connection stacks. Examples include road traffic signal systems as specified in DIN EN 50556, installations of the public lighting system, local public transport stops, pump systems, measuring stations, etc., as well as telecommunication facilities and charging stations for electric vehicles. This VDE application guide specifies power ports and meter panels for measuring and control equipment. If operating currents of more than 63 A are to be expected to occur on a regular basis in the customer system, then the network operator’s technical connection conditions shall be taken into account.
