High Reliability Connector For Electric Vehicle Charging


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
ITT Cannon Electronic Components
: 19 July, 2010  (New Product)
Enhanced cable management and the ability to handle a wide range of charging input currents and voltages characterise the new J17772 connector for high reliability charging on electric vehicles
High Reliability Connector For Electric Vehicle Charging
Achieving an Electric Vehicle industry first, ITT Interconnect Solutions has launched a new high efficiency, high reliability J1772 connector targeting electric vehicle charging applications and capable of performing Level I and II charging from a low end of 15A/120V to a high end range of 75A/240V through the same interface.

Based on HEP spring contact technology, the new connectors represent the industry's first UL-rated, J1772 Level II 75 amp four hour or less full charging solution. Charging options include 75A/240V, 30A/240V, 15A/240V and 15A/120V. The inlet connector includes finger-tip 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 cable with a greater degree of flexibility, ease-of-use is assured on retractable design charging units.

Comments global marketing director, Keith Teichmann: “With the release of the SAE J1772 specification in January 2010 as the standard adopted in the USA and Japan for Level I and II electric vehicle charging, robust coupler and inlet connectors capable of passing stringent testing to UL 2251 for agency approval were urgently needed to support electric vehicle production capability currently scheduled for Q4 2010. Our new interconnect is based on a high-power system used on hybrid busses: over 33,000 such interconnects are currently in service without a single known field failure.”

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.
