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.

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, 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 can be ordered with or without 1 or 3 phase, 16A (2.5mm2 CSA) or 32A (6.0mm2 CSA) copper wire tails pre-attached by crimping.  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.

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 2 charging socket to an existing EV that only has, for example, a tethered 13A charging lead.  Note that the charge-point will need to have a tethered Type 2 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 plug and socket are 3 phase (3P) compatible and come with 3P connections included - the only difference between 1P and 3P plugs is the size of the cable inlet.  1P plugs have a maximum cable diameter of 18mm; 3P plugs have a maximum cable diameter of 25mm. Therefore, if you want to use 16A, 3P cable, you can order a 1P plug as the cable entry will be large enough.  If you want to use a 3P 32A cable you must order a 3 phase plug.

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).
