This part of IEC 62196 applies to plugs, socket-outlets, vehicle connectors and vehicle inlets with pins and contact-tubes of standardized configurations, herein referred to as accessories. They have a nominal rated operating voltage not exceeding 480 V a.c., 50 Hz to 60 Hz, and a rated current not exceeding 63 A three-phase or 70 A single phase, for use in conductive charging of electric vehicles.
This part of IEC 62196 covers the basic interface accessories for vehicle supply as specified in IEC 62196-1, and intended for use in conductive charging systems for circuits specified in IEC 61851-1:2010.
NOTE 1 Electric road vehicles (EV) implies all road vehicles, including plug-in hybrid road vehicles (PHEV), that derive all or part of their energy from RESS.
These accessories are intended to be used for circuits specified in IEC 61851-1:2010 which operate at different voltages and frequencies and which may include extra-low voltage (ELV) and communication signals.
These accessories may be used for bidirectional power transfer (under consideration).
This standard applies to accessories to be used in an ambient temperature between -30 °C and +50 °C.
NOTE 2 In the following country, other requirements regarding the lower temperature may apply: NO.
NOTE 3 In the following country, -35 °C applies: SE.
These accessories are intended to be connected only to cables with copper or copper-alloy conductors.
Vehicle inlet and vehicle connector to this standard are intended to be used for charging in modes 1, 2 and 3, cases B and C. The socket-outlets and plugs covered by this standard are intended to be used for charging mode 3 only, case A and B.
The modes and permissible connections are specified in IEC 62196-1:2014.
