Installation

Installation Prerequisites

JuiceBox requires one of the following to be installed by a qualified technician:
  • NEMA 14-50 outlet
  • Hardwired electrical connection

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.

When selecting a location to install the outlet or hardwire connection, keep in mind that JuiceBox should be positioned:
  • Within range of the local WiFi network
  • Within reach of the vehicle's charge port
  • With sufficient vertical clearance:
    • Mounted indoors: 24 - 48 in (61 - 122 cm) above the floor
    • Mounted outdoors: 18 - 48 in (46 - 122 cm) above the ground
  • Plug-In Version only: Within reach of the NEMA 14-50 outlet so that the cable does not strain. The cable is 1 foot (30 cm) long.
  • If possible, sheltered from weather (away from direct sunlight and protected from rain)

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 or hardwired electrical connection.
         WARNING: Do not continue this installation until the circuit breaker is turned off.
  1. Use a wall screw (x1) to secure one side of the wall bracket into the stud closest to the installation area. Use a beam level to ensure that the bracket is level horizontally, then use a wall screw (x1) to secure the other side of the bracket into the wall.
    NOTE: Mount to wood, a stud, or use concrete or dry wall anchors.
  2. Use the enclosure screws (x4) to secure the enclosure bracket onto the back of the JuiceBox.
  3. Hang the JuiceBox onto the wall bracket.
  4. Optional: Use a wall screw (x1) to secure the bottom of the enclosure bracket to the wall.
  5. Connect the JuiceBox to the hardwired connection:
    • Plug-In Version: Plug the JuiceBox into the NEMA 14-50 outlet.
      WARNING: Do not use this device with an extension cord.
    • Hardwire Version: Connect the pigtail harness to the wiring terminal:
       
      Red Black Green
      L1 L2 Ground
      NOTE: No neutral (white) line is used.
    CAUTION: Do not use wire nuts. They might melt at high current.
  6. Turn on the circuit breaker that supplies power to the JuiceBox. Wait 10 seconds.
    Verify that the JuiceBox is powered by checking that the "Power" indicator light on the enclosure is solid green.
  7. Install the charging cable holder.
    NOTE: Mount to wood, a stud, or use concrete or dry wall anchors.

Load Balancing

  • Only balance to the circuit level.

  • Only balance stations with the same specifications (Pro40 with Pro40).

  • 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.
