The intent of the green output wire is to use it as a safety interlock to prevent driving off when you are plugged in charging. It outputs pack voltage when NOT charging, which you can fuse, run thru your pot-box ksi, and then to your controller ksi. When charging it cuts to 0 volts, and you can't drive off (without KSI voltage to controller).
However..... it is NOT really a foolproof interlock because it switches from 0 volts to pack voltage when the charge is 'complete', and NOT when the charger is plugged or unplugged. The creates the situation where in the morning, when charger is 'done', it returns voltage to KSI, and you CAN drive away while still plugged in.
so... while it is intended to be used as an interlock voltage thru KSI, it is not really done correctly. I have sent a request to Elcon that they change it to output 0 volts as long as charger is plugged in in future models, but gotten no response.
I did wire it in as an interlock like this http://www.envirokarma.org/ev/galler...harger2ksi.htm
, but discovered that voltage returns to pack voltage when charge is 'complete'....
