Leviton updates charging system to Evr-Green 320 Level 2
By Renée Francoeur
November 13, 2015 – Leviton has unveiled the Evr-Green 320 Level 2 charging station, the latest addition to its Evr-Green line of residential, commercial and public electric vehicle charging systems. The updated device provides up to 32 amps at 208 or 240 volts AC (7.7 kW maximum output) and is designed to reduce the charge time of next generation SAE J1772 plug-in electric vehicles.
The Evr-Green 320 Level 2 features a charge connector assembly that is rated up to 40 amps and a weatherproof NEMA Type 4 steel enclosure. The device is available in a hard-wired installation, and can be cord-connected and mounted to the Leviton installation kit if required. The station is also available with either an 18-ft or 25-ft charging cable, to provide more flexibility for mounting locations for customers.
The charge connector also has an inexpensive lockable secure system to prevent unauthorized use and uses low carbon footprint materials, Leviton says.
The device will be available through Leviton’s distribution channels: e-store, electrical distributors, retail partners and automakers starting in May 2016.
