Ground fault breaker in the charging cable

The control unit for the charging cable charging cable has a built-in ground fault breaker that protects the car and the user from electric shocks caused by system faults.

Warning

Charging the hybrid battery must only take place with grounded and approved 230 V sockets (alternating current). If the capacity for the socket or fuse circuit is unknown, ask a licensed electrician to check the capacity. Charging above the capacity of a fuse circuit may lead to fire or damage the fuse circuit.

Warning

  • The charging cable's overvoltage protection helps to protect the car's charging system, but cannot guarantee that overload will never occur.
  • Never use visibly worn or damaged electrical sockets. This could cause fire or serious injury.
  • Never connect the charging cable to a cable extension.
  • Maintenance or replacement of the hybrid battery must only be performed by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

Important

The ground fault breaker does not protect the 230 V socket (alternating current)/electrical installation.

Important

  • Check the capacity of the socket.
  • Other electronic equipment connected to the same fuse circuit must be disconnected if the total load is exceeded.
  • Do not connect the charging cable if the socket is damaged.
