Legrand’s new residential Level 2 EV charger is designed to be powerful and compact

Legrand, a manufacturer of a broad range of electrical wiring devices for commercial, industrial and residential applications, has announced the launch of its first residential EV charger.

“We’re about delivering access to power, wherever and however people need it,” states Scott Bausch, VP and General Manager for Legrand’s wiring device business. “The need for simple, safe and fast ways to charge EVs at home is growing rapidly. We saw meeting this need as a natural extension of what the Pass and Seymour line has been providing for over a century, as pioneers in electrical safety and a long-trusted manufacturer of receptacles and lighting controls.”

The non-networked unit is Energy Star-certified, and buyers may qualify users for rebates and tax credits. It’s suitable for indoor and outdoor locations, and no setup or configuration is required.

Legrand’s Plug-In Home Level 2 EV Charger is available now in the US market. A hard-wired version is expected to launch later this year. The unit is rated for 40 amps and provides a power output of 9.6 kW.

“On top of safety and speed, we also wanted to provide a charger that wasn’t going to get in the way,” adds Kevin Kohl, Legrand’s Director Product Management, User Experiences. “For many people, their garages and driveways don’t have a lot of room to spare. The unit itself is sleek and compact so that it can provide convenient charging access without adding bulk to the space. Its cord is 18 feet long, so that it can easily reach multiple spots and get where it needs to, but it then easily rolls up and stores on the unit’s included hook and holster. Perfect for keeping it tidy and out of the way when not in use.”
