That switch on the vehicle side - is it a microswitch built into the Type-2 car charge port?
That switch isn't strictly required. But you could put it in next to the charge port. With it activated it holds the charger in a ready to charge state.

882 ohm resistor and 1N4148 diode between pilot signal and ground.

You can add a pin if you can source the OEM Yazaki one. Tesla Destination chargers have a beef with Mitsubishi cars in general.

Re: Making a conversion J1772 / IEC 62196 capable

You could use a resistor across a multi turn switch and command the charger that way to reduce current, but the risk there is that if a 10A EVSE is plugged in and the switch was set to 32A you will have one roasted EVSE in a matter of minutes. There is something like this from Thunderstruck EV, whic...

Re: Tesla HPWC adaptor >J1772

Originally Tesla supplied single phase HPWC's in Oz. Easily spotted with a metal front and the wand does not stow on the side of the charger. A while later Tesla started supplying 3 phase versions. They both run standard J1772 signalling but there are caveats. Tesla uses both PWM and LIN comms to th...

Running an Allison AT540 or similar?. No lockup clutch so plenty of slip. I would avoid. Whats the diff ratio?. Might be low enough for direct drive?

For the saloon cooling that wont have enough BTU's. The Masterflux compressor is much more suitable. But for battery cooling it might be ok.

Or ask them if the charging cable is serviceable and easily swapped. If thats the case order a Type 2 version Zappi from the UK and order a Type 1 cable for the I-Miev and swap it. Avoid adaptors if you can.
