Leviton releases first UL-listed 40 Amp, cord-connected charging station for plug-in vehicles

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.

The headline is a bit misleading here. While this may be Leviton's first 40A J1772 EVSE, at the very least ClipperCreek has been producing J1772 EVSEs (or very similar) for years now in current ratings all the way up to 80A.

I am not aware of Clipper Creek ever offering a cord connected 240 volt EVSE in North America, all of theirs are hard wired.

The 2014 NEC article 625 is finally going to be updated to explicitly allow cord connected 240 volt EVSE. It has been confusing to date.
