EVSE manufacturer ClipperCreek has released new ruggedized versions of two of its Level 2 charging stations. The ruggedized versions of the 48 Amp HCS-60 and 64 Amp HCS-80 charging stations are intended for heavy-utilization fleets, public parking lots and extreme weather locations.
The ruggedized HCS-60 and HCS-80 augment the original charging stations with rubber overmolded SAE-J1772 connectors, field-replaceable connector latches, and a five-year warranty. The ruggedized versions are available for an added $100 to the base prices of $899 for the HCS-60 and $969 for the HCS-80.
“We saw great customer acceptance with our first set of ruggedized products, the HCS-40R and PMD-10R, and have continued to receive requests for the higher-powered ruggedized options,” said ClipperCreek’s Will Barrett. “ClipperCreek’s standard products are very robust, and all have NEMA 4 rated enclosures for indoor or outdoor installs. The overmolded ruggedized SAE-J1772TM connector takes our already tough products to another level.”
