The annual storm season again, from north to south and more on "Sea View" mode, the majority of owners of gasoline to travel caused some concern, worry wading will stall.
But the new energy vehicles as well as these questions? And the electricity will not drain the water after soaking?
About leakage I can assure you, do not exist, do not worry, so far have not heard of leakage, Here to answer some of the questions we are more concerned about.
1, the vehicle over the water do not be afraid!
The most obvious difference between electric cars and fuel car is powered models, new energy vehicles to provide energy battery, do not need to rely on air to participate, there was no engine, no exhaust and air intake problem, so let there than wading car strengthened.
Second, the electric vehicle battery module is completely closed, even in the water there will be no danger, AQSIQ issued the "electric vehicle power battery safety requirements and test methods", clearly pointed out the safety indicators and experiment method. Specific requirements for the test: single immersion, the battery is fully charged, was immersed in 3.5?aCL solution for 2 hours, the whole cell solution immersion was observed 1 hour; module immersion, full charge module, immersed in 3.5?aline 2 hours NaCL , immersing the whole module was observed for 1 hour. This authentication method has far exceeded what we encountered daily, and compared them a few minutes to a shallow water no big problem!
Many manufacturers will also do safety testing, the battery pack soaked in water for 24 hours, then the performance of the battery is detected, the short circuit and leakage problems never existed.
2, rain charging what impact it?
No effect, also do not worry about leakage, the first charging post is also a national standard, strictly defined, conducted the testing before the factory, it is generally rainy day charge will not be much of a problem.
Secondly are electrically insulated from each other between the tips of the respective hole, and when the electric charging gun current mosaic will completely through the port, when the first disconnection detecting section drew above, and prevents current continues to flow, so to a guarantee to maximize safety.
Although more rain proved the charge is not a problem, but I suggest that you try to choose not to charge when it rains, the insurance point of no harm.
3, wading rain when the boat can it?
Not! If the water level is too deep or will have some impact on the vehicle, the electric car degree of protection under normal circumstances is IP67, which means you can simply running water sections in the city, but a long soak in the water for automotive metal parts, and seats or there are injuries.
So everyday when you want to stop or park the vehicle at a high point, soaked in water to avoid the vehicle, if it is found charging station charging pile, heavy rains flooded, do not rush to close the charge, in case of a damaged cord still very dangerous.
