Leviton releases first UL-listed 40 Amp, cord-connected charging station for plug-in vehicles
11 March 2013
Leviton introduced the Evr-Green 400 Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Station, its latest entry to its Evr-Green line of residential, commercial and public electric vehicle charging systems. The new device provides up to 40 amps of continuous power at 240 volts AC (9.6 kW output) and enables fast charging of any SAE J1772 compatible electric vehicle. The charging station is the industry first 40 amp version to meet and exceed UL, CSA and NEC electric vehicle charging station requirements along with FCC Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission for Residential Use, according to the company.
The Evr-Green 400 Charging Station features enhanced convenience features, such as an integrated connector dock which simulates a gas station nozzle experience, with a 25-foot charging cable providing more flexibility for mounting locations. Including a three-year limited warranty, the charging station is targeted for residential or light commercial applications.
The Evr-Green 400 features a durable, watertight NEMA Type 4 steel enclosure and a thermoplastic cover. It features a cord-connected installation when used with a Pre-Wire Installation Kit or can be converted to a hard-wired installation if required. The Evr-Green 400 is compatible with the Evr-Green EVK05 Pre-Wire Installation Kit used with Leviton’s Evr-Green 300 and Evr-Green 320.
