Water and electricity certainly do go together! But how does it work?
The StreetPlug is equipped with three parts that ensure a dry system. These parts are as follows:
Diving bell principle - The StreetPlug is equipped with a diving bell. All electrical components are in a bubble when the Streetplug is closed. This way the StreetPlug is not affected by water and the system remains dry.
Water Sensor - The water sensor in the StreetPlug detects water at a certain level, the charging process is stopped and goes into safe mode as long as water is detected. As soon as the water has subsided, the charging process will resume.
Water drainage & Hydroblock - The StreetPlug can easily be connected to the rainwater drainage for correct drainage. If this is not possible and the circumstances allow it, there is an alternative, the Hydroblock. The Hydroblock under the StreetPlug ensures rapid water drainage and releases the water into the ground.
