Wed, 12/01/2010 - 5:25am
CS935 EVC SeriesITT Interconnect Solutions has achieved an electric vehicle industry first with its new high efficiency, high reliability J1772 connector. Based on HEP spring contact technology, the new 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 inlet connector includes finger-tip protection on the power & ground pin contacts and also features an enhanced cable management system using ITT’s VEAM CIR series backshells. By using a cable with a greater degree of flexibility, ease-of-use is assured on retractable design charging units.

“With the release of the SAE J1772 specification in January 2010 as the adopted standard in the USA and Japan for Level I and II electric vehicle charging, robust coupler and inlet connectors capable of passing stringent testing to UL 2251 for agency approval were urgently needed to support electric vehicle production capability currently scheduled for Q4 2010. Our new interconnect is based on a high-power system used on hybrid busses: more than 33,000 such interconnects are currently in service without a single known field failure,” said Keith Teichmann, global marketing director at ITT Interconnect Solutions.
The new UL-approved J1772 Level I and II electric vehicle charging robust 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.
