Avnet Express announces the immediate, in-stock availability of ITT Interconnect Solutions’ entire line of electric vehicle charging connectors (EVC). This entire EVC Series is in-stock.

Based on head-end power (HEP) spring contact technology, ITT’s EVC Series is the electric vehicle industry’s first Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL)-rated, SAE J1772 Level II charging station connector: boasting 75-amps and a charging time of four hours or less. Designed specifically for electric vehicle charging applications, the advanced EVC Series SAE J1772 connector solution is capable of performing Level I and II charging from a low-end range of 15A/120V to a high-end range of 75A/240V.

Charging options include 75A/240V, 30A/240V, 15A/240V and 15A/120V. 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. The inlet connector includes fingertip protection on the power and 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.
