ClipperCreek has added a new charger to its HCS series product line. The HCS-60 is a 48 Amp Level 2 station that’s designed for both residential and commercial markets. The HCS-60 has a fully sealed NEMA 4 enclosure, and is rated for both indoor and outdoor use. It comes with a 3-year warranty, and pricing starts at $899.
With 48 Amps available for charging, the HCS-60 is suitable for vehicles that can take advantage of higher charging currents, such as the Toyota RAV4 EV, the Tesla Model S, or electric fleet trucks.
“Electric vehicle charging rates are rising and some customers have asked for higher power stations to future-proof their installation investment,” says Will Barrett, Inside Sales Manager at ClipperCreek. “The ClipperCreek team has responded with 48 Amp charging, that is 11.5 kW of power.”
The HCS-60 features a 25-foot rubber over-molded cable. “The larger conductor size for the high power transfer required special care to design for real-world operation,” said Jason France, CEO of ClipperCreek. “We used rubber over-molding to fully seal the connector’s head and increase the durability in the rough commercial world. The rubber cable jacket increases cold weather flexibility of the cable.”
