SANTA ANA, CA - ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects and cable assemblies, recently won an ECN 2011 Readers Choice Technology Award for its advanced EVC Series J1772 electric vehicle connector. Highlighting the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on its readers' selection of the most innovative, significant, useful and popular devices, ITT's EVC Series J1772 electric vehicle connector won the Packaging, Enclosures, Clips & Interconnects category.
Based on HEP spring contact technology, the highly efficient EVC Series J1772 electric vehicle connector represents 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. Designed specifically for electric vehicle charging applications, the J1772 is capable of performing Level I and II charging from a low-end of 15A/120V to a high-end range of 75A/240V.
The inlet connector includes finger-tip protection on the power & ground pin contacts and also features an enhanced cable management system using ITT's VEAM CIR series backshells. By using a cable with a greater degree of flexibility, ease-of-use is assured on retractable design charging units. The UL-approved J1772 Level I and II robust electric vehicle charging 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.
