The plug is designed for use in EV charging cables and will plug into any compatible, Type 2, EVSE.  It is the MALE side of the connection and so has PINS not SLEEVES (see photo).  A plug, pre-attached to suitably rated cable, may be ordered here.

If you want a single phase 16A or 32A plug then order the ‘1P S’ option (L2 & L3 pins will be missing and blanks provided), if you want a 3 phase 16A one then order the ‘3P S’ option. Lastly, f you want a 32A 3P plug then order the ‘3P L’ option.  The only difference between ‘S’ and ‘L’ plug bodies is the size of the cable inlet.  ‘S’ plugs have a maximum cable diameter of 18mm; ‘L’ plugs have a maximum cable diameter of 25mm.  You may find that your 32A 3P cable will fit in the smaller plug, in which case you can order the ‘3P S’ option.

The socket is designed for use in EVs as the car-side charging connection and will accept a compatible, Type 2, FEMALE plug.  It has a plastic, tethered, ‘bayonet-style’ twist-on dust cap.  It does not contain any illumination LEDs but has provision for fitting them behind the red and green lenses. It comes with 4 x stainless steel M5 x 15mm Countersunk hex-drive bolts, washers and nyloc nuts.

The socket alone can be ordered in 1 phase ‘1P’ or 3 phase ‘3P’ options - and are therefore supplied with L2 and L3 pins missing (blanks supplied) or al 3 L pins, respectively.  t can also be ordered with or without 1 or 3 phase, 16A (2.5mm2 CSA) or 32A (6.0mm2 CSA) copper wire tails pre-attached using an 8T hydraulic crimper.  Standard cable lengths are 1, 3, & 5m.  These come in a flexible orange conduit, 20mm in diameter (O/S dimension).  Longer lengths may be ordered by contacting (see below).  Weight With Cable: See purchase button drop-downs.

All pins/sleeves have a conductor entry hole of 4mm diameter, large enough for 10mm2 (60A-70A) conductors, maximum.

NOTE:  The pins and sleeves in these plugs require crimping with a suitable (high power) crimper.  An 8T hydraulic crimper can be purchased on eBay for ~£30 (example image below - I make no recommendations for this particular item).
