SAE Electric Vehicle and Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Coupler
This SAE Standard covers the general physical, electrical, functional and performance requirements to facilitate conductive charging of EV/PHEV vehicles in North America. This document defines a common EV/PHEV and supply equipment vehicle conductive charging method including operational requirements and the functional and dimensional requirements for the vehicle inlet and mating connector.
Rationale: J1772 is planned for updates due to the introduction of cooled cables to support High Power Charging (HPC) and remaining dimensional issues from the AC form factor connector described in the standard. The Task Force plans to limit revisions to an agreed upon set of changes defined during the 2017 publication effort.
