Plugs, socket-outlets, vehicle connectors and vehicle inlets - Conductive charging of electric vehicles - Part 2: Dimensional compatibility and interchangeability requirements for a.c. pin and contact-tube accessories
This standard 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 500 V a.c., 50 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 standard 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. -- Electric vehicles covers all road vehicles, including plug-in hybrid road vehicles (PHEV), that derive all or part of their energy from on-board batteries. -- NOTE 1 These accessories may provide a contact that can be used for the proximity contact function. -- 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 ELV and communication signals. These accessories may be used for bidirectional energy transmission (under consideration). This standard applies to the accessories to be used in an ambient temperature of between – 30 °C and + 50 °C. -- NOTE 2 In the following country, other requirements may apply: FI. -- 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 Part 1.
