Leviton has introduced a new 40-amp EV Charge Connector Assembly. The J1772-compliant connector assembly was designed for the Leviton Evr-Green family of EV chargers, and is rated at 40 amps of current or 9.7 kW of power. According to the company, it is designed to address an emerging trend for EVs to use larger on-board chargers.
The handy new gadget is available with 25 feet of flexible cable, and features a built-in anti-theft mechanism.
“We have worked closely with our automaker partners to develop a safe and reliable connector assembly that is designed for more than 10,000 operating cycles – that’s more than 27 years of use,” said Manoj Karwa, Leviton’s Senior Director of EVSE Programs. “The 40-amp charge connector assembly is in use in 3,000 dealers and in 11 different vehicle platforms as part of our 32- and 40-amp charging stations, creating a family of charging stations to meet the next generation of electric vehicles.”
