RCCBs Type 'A EV'
Type A EV RCCBs are designed specifically for individual EV chargers, where the model and make of the vehicle being charged is unknown. The EV RCCB will trip if the smooth dc residual current exceeds 6mA. Type A EV RCCBs in addition to providing normal residule current protection, also protect upstream RCCBs (Type A) from the effects of smooth dc residual currents >6mA. Type A RCCBs cannot detect smooth dc and must not be subjected to levels above 6mA - see Wiring Regulation 722.531.2.101.

Single charge point with A EV RCCB - see Fig 1:  
The upstream RCCB can be Type A or Type A KV 
depending on the inrush current of the vehicle charger. 

Multiple charge points - see Fig 2:   
The smooth dc current flowing through the up stream RCCB
is equal to the sum of all the chargers connected
down stream. Type B RCCB required upstream.
