This plug and matching socket are designed for use in EV charging cables and will mate with any J1772 specified socket/plug.

They are rated at 70A and therefore are suitable for 16 and 32 amp or higher current applications as per the IEC 61851-2001 / SAE J1772-2001 standard.  The conductors should be crimped on into the pins using a heavy-duty (eg, hydraulic) crimper.  The plug comes with the 2 resistors required for correct communication with the EV and these are pre-soldered to the integrated, water resistant microswitch.

A small padlock can be used (not supplied) to secure the plug to the car whilst charging.  The padlock shackle must have a diameter of no more than 4mm.

Plug Dimensions (mm):- 240 L, 75 H, 55 W (all with dust cap on)  Weight:- 400g

Socket Dimensions(mm):- 120L, 70H x 70W  Weight:- 245g

The plug can be disassembled with the following:-

1/ A T15 Torx driver bit (needs to be at least 35mm long), 

2/ A T10 Torx driver bit and

3/ A ‘2.7mm Triangle’ security bit…

...all of which you may wish to order with your plug at a cost of £5 extra.  Note:- the triangular bit is very difficult to find!  The plug can be supplied with pre-attached cable in various configurations - see here as well as part of an EVSE kit - see here.

The socket can be disassembled with a T10 Torx driver bit, a No 2 Phillips screwdriver and a 3mm Allen key/hex driver.  It can also be supplied with suitably current-rated, pre-attached wire tails in a flexible orange plastic conduit (see drop-down payment options).

IP54 rated.
