This Standard covers conductive electric vehicle (EV) supply equipment with a primary source voltage of 600 V ac or less, with a frequency of 60 Hz, and intended to provide ac power to an electric vehicle with an on-board charging unit. This Standard covers electric vehicle supply equipment intended for use where ventilation is not required.

With reference to 1.1, the electric vehicle supply equipment covered by this Standard includes:

a) Portable EV Cord Sets - Rated 125 Vac maximum, 20 A maximum, intended for indoor and outdoor use; b) Stationary EV Cord Sets - Rated 125 Vac maximum, 20 A maximum, intended for indoor and outdoor use;

c) Stationary EV Cord Sets - Rated 250 Vac maximum, 40 A maximum, intended for indoor use only;

d) Movable EV Charging Stations - Rated 125 Vac maximum, intended for indoor and outdoor use;

e) Movable EV Charging Stations - Rated 250 Vac maximum, 40 A maximum, intended for indoor use only;

f) Permanent EV Charging Station - Rated 600 Vac maximum, intended for indoor or indoor/ outdoor use; or

g) Permanent EV Power Outlet - Rated 600 Vac maximum, intended for indoor or indoor/ outdoor use.

EV Power Outlets provide a receptacle where one did not previously exist.

For Mexico, use 127 Vac where 120 or 125 Vac is referenced in this Standard. In Canada and the United States, this does not apply. 

The products covered by this Standard are intended for use in accordance with the Installation Codes in Annex A, Ref. No.1.

This Standard does not cover cord sets or power supply cords for applications other than EV charging cord sets. For cord sets and power supply cords not covered by this Standard, refer to Annex A, Ref. No. 2 and No. 3.
