PARIS Ė Shortly after the release of the SAE Electric Vehicle J1772 charging specification, ITT Interconnect Solutions has introduced its latest automotive power interconnect series, the EVC Series of J1772 connectors and cable assemblies. It is claimed to address the needs for a higher amperage solution reducing the level 2 charge time by 50 percent.
Based on HEP spring contact technology, ITT Interconnect Solutions said the EVC Series connectors represent the industry's first UL-rated, J1772 Level II 75 amp four hour or less full charging solution. Charging options include 75A/240V, 30A/240V, 15A/240V, and 15A/120V.
Designed specifically for electric vehicle charging applications, the J1772 is capable of performing Level I and II charging from a low-end of 15A/120V to a high-end range of 75A/240V, the company continued.
The UL-approved J1772 Level I and II electric vehicle charging coupler and inlet connectors are suitable for electric passenger vehicles, home charging units, public infrastructure charging units, roadside assistance trucks, electric fleet vehicles, and electric motorcycles, ITT said.
