Level 2 Charging Station
The Level 2 electric vehicle charging station is NEMA 3R rated—suitable for indoor or outdoor use—and is housed in a heavy-duty aluminum enclosure with a powder-coat paint and metallic silver finish for durability and long life. The charging station can be wall-mounted or it can be configured as a freestanding pedestal.
- The charger will respond by indicating its available line current (ALC). The ALC is the maximum current the electric vehicle is allowed to draw, depending on the circuit size or the commands of a load-management system and/or the requirements of a utility.
- The various communications between the electric vehicle and the Level 2 EV charging station are in place to ensure user safety. These safety checks verify that there is no chance of injury to the user or the equipment.
- In addition, electric vehicles are required to have an interlock deactivating the ignition while connected. If anything happens to disrupt the connection, such as a user releasing the connector latch, the power flow to the vehicle will immediately stop.
