    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC 62196-1:2014 is applicable to plugs, socket-outlets, vehicle connectors, vehicle inlets and cable assemblies for electric vehicles, herein referred to as "accessories", intended for use in conductive charging systems which incorporate control means, with a rated operating voltage not exceeding:
    - 690 V a.c. 50 Hz to 60 Hz, at a rated current not exceeding 250 A;
    - 1 500 V d.c. at a rated current not exceeding 400 A.
    This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2011 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
    a) addition of a preferred operating voltage of 1 000 V d.c.;
    b) addition of a preferred rated current of 80 A d.c.;
    c) addition of a provision for a combined interface a.c./d.c.;
    d) description of d.c. configurations (previously under consideration);
    e) addition of requirements pertaining to the locking mechanism, the interlock and the latching device;
    f) addition of a test for accessories not suitable for making and breaking an electrical circuit under load;
    g) addition of requirements and tests for insulated end caps.
