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 a T10 Torx driver bit (needs to be at least 35mm long).

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 (none of these are included but the socket can be ordered with the Torx bit).  It can also be supplied with suitably current-rated, pre-attached wire tails in a flexible orange plastic conduit (see drop-down payment options).

The socket can also be ordered with an simple circuit that will automatically cause a standard private or public EV charge point to activate on connection.  This may be suitable for customers wishing to retro-fit a Type 1 charging socket to an existing EV that only only has, for example, a tethered 13A charging lead.  Note that the charge-point will need to have a tethered Type 1 lead or the customer will have to supply one (see here).  WARNING!  YOU MUST KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING IF YOU INTEND USING THIS DEVICE!  The socket tails will potentially become 220VAC LIVE as soon as the socket is connected to a charging point!  To order this option, after adding the socket to your cart, add the option ‘Auto-Switch On’ option to the cart also (and international postage if required), then check out.

Both items are IP54 rated.

Microswitch and Resistors

To install, open the plug body exposing the internal wiring (you may want to order the specially long Torx T15 bit shown elsewhere on this page - the T10 one is not needed).  Cut the small wire from the existing PE pin plug connection and the only one from the PP pin (cut them long to make it easier for you) and connect these to the ends of the new microswitch wires (polarity is irrelevant).  I recommend soldering the connections and heat shrink (supplied) isolation.
