This part of IEC 62196 is applicable to plugs, socket-outlets, connectors, inlets and cable assemblies for electric vehicles, intended for use in conductive charging systems which incorporate control means, with a rated operating voltage not exceeding:
- 690 V a.c., 50 - 60 Hz, at a rated current not exceeding 250 A;
- 600 V d.c., at a rated current not exceeding 400 A.
These accessories and cable assemblies are intended to be used for circuits specified in IEC 61851-1 which operate at different voltages and frequencies and which may include ELV and communication signals.
These accessories and cable assemblies are to be used in an ambient temperature of between -30 °C and +50 °C. In some countries, other requirements may apply.
These accessories are intended to be connected only to cables with copper or copper-alloy conductors.
The accessories covered by this standard are for use in certain modes of charging EV's. These modes are defined in IEC 61851-1. These definitions and a description of the types of connection (cases A, B and C), also described in IEC 61851-1, are reproduced herein as Annex A.
Table 1 illustrates the types of accessories (B, U32, UA, UD) permitted for each charging situation (mode and case) and identifies where it is mandatory to use the accessories covered by this standard. These are indicated by the entries in the columns headed "62196" in Table 1.
The table also describes situations in which either an accessory covered by this standard, or other standardized accessories, are permitted to be used. They are identified by an entry in the column headed "62196" and the word "Any" under the column headed "Type".
This standard does not apply to those standardised accessories used in charging systems where the use of such accessories constructed to the requirements of other standards is permitted (e.g. in mode 1 and mode 2). Such standardized accessories may be used for those situations (mode and case) identified in Table 1 by the word "Any" under the column headed "Type" and with no corresponding entry under the column headed "62196".
This standard can be used as a guide for accessories with a lesser number of contacts and lower ratings for use with light duty vehicles.
