Maddox Electric

48 amps x 125% = 60 amps. Just an FYI.
Erik Odden

At the bare minimum you need to size molded case breakers keeping in mind that they are only continuously rated for 80% of the load. Meaning, at bare minimum you typically want to take the full-load amperage and divide it by .80 to size the breaker. Depending on the manufacturer's design, they may suggest an even more upsized breaker.
Ian Hoppe - Condoit
43:58
Specified breaker sizes are usually listed on the EVC cut sheets.

Dave - I have no horse in the game, but it looks like Trilium understands the need for manufacturing DCFC units in the USA to meet said Buy American requirements.https://electrek.co/2022/08/23/tritium-first-charger-manufacturing-facility-united-states/
