Installation

Installation Prerequisites

JuiceBox requires either a hardwired electrical connection or a NEMA 14-50 outlet.

The JuiceBox power supply must be connected to a non-GFI circuit breaker that is rated for at least 125% of the device's continuous load.

NOTE: Ensure that all power connection wiring conforms to the rules and regulations of any national and local codes.
When selecting a location to install the hardwire connection or outlet, keep in mind that JuiceBox should be positioned:
  • Within reach of the vehicle's charge port
  • 18 inches above the floor or ground
  • If applicable, within range of a cellular connection or the local Wi-Fi network

Installation

Fully read and understand the directions before installation. Refer to additional safety information at the end of this document.

  1. Turn off the circuit breaker to the NEMA 14-50 outlet, NEMA 6-50 outlet, or hardwired electrical connection.
         WARNING: Do not continue this installation until the circuit breaker is turned off.
  1. Use a stud sensor to determine an appropriate mounting location, then use the 2 screws to secure the wall bracket.

  3. Hang the JuiceBox onto the wall bracket.
    NOTE: If the JuiceBox does not hang securely, adjust the screws that were installed in step 3. The 48 and 80 amp are hardwire only and do not have a plug as shown.

  4. Connect the JuiceBox:
    • Plug-In Version: Plug the JuiceBox into the NEMA 14-50 outlet or NEMA 6-50 outlet.
    • 1-Phase Hardwired Version: Connect the harness to the wiring terminal.
      WARNING: It is the installers responsibility to ensure that the JuiceBox is wired in accordance with the local electrical code.
      NOTE: The hardwire versions of the JuiceBox are shipped with appropriate wires that meet the National Electric Code (NEC) NFPA 70 and require a nearby junction box connection. Any alteration of the supplied wiring will invalidate the warranty and may not conform to NEC.

  5. Turn on the circuit breaker that supplies power to the NEMA 14-50 outlet, NEMA 6-50 outlet, or hardwired electrical connection.

Load Balancing

  • Only balance to the circuit level.

  • Only balance stations with the same specifications.

  • Balancing specifications cannot exceed the rated continuous load of the circuit. (50 amp circuit = 40 amp continuous load allowed) (NEC 625.41 & 42) 2017 code.

  • Per NEC 625.42 additional outlets per circuit can be added due to the JuiceNet Automated Load Management System.
