I own a hydropower plant where I have installed 16 amp wall outlets and I would like to make a simple (cheap) charge cable.
I bought an Outlander "gun" with a 7 meter cable and it has no plug to fit into the 16amp wall socket.
The cable end has the standard 3 wires for neutral, power and earth along with a small gauge control wire.
Does anyone know what kind of signal or voltage the car is looking for on the small gauge wire?

Very short answer: 12 volt 1 kHz Square wave with a duty cycle of 1% per 0.6 amps, 10% being the minimum. About 25 to 30% will do just fine. 1000 ohm between the 12 volt power source and the car.

That will work. But it is not safe.

Can't always trust Wikipedia, but there's a quick explanation on there.

I did build my own. Info on wiki is okay. But I did add several safety measures ;)
