Leviton has launched of its new Level 2 (240V, 40A) charging station designed for the Toyota RAV4 EV.
Designed, tested and assembled in the United States, the next generation Leviton charging station is able to provide 9.6 kW output, and will charge the Toyota RAV4 EV in approximately six hours. It also includes a 25-foot charging cable which offers flexibility in the mounting location.
The weatherproof, thermoplastic NEMA Type 4 enclosure makes the device safe for use in both indoor and outdoor locations. The unit comes standard with Leviton’s patent pending “cord-connected” system, which is ideal for indoor applications, with the capability to be converted to hard-wire for outdoor applications.
The 40A charging station includes an industry-leading ten-year limited product warranty when installed by Leviton’s s highly trained EVSE-certified electrical contractors. As an added customer safety feature, Leviton designed its charging station with supervisory, contactor and ground monitoring circuits, as well as built-in communication to verify proper connection before charging can commence. The device’s “Auto-Restart” feature enables charging to restart following a minor fault, thereby reducing the chance of being stranded with an undercharged battery.
The Leviton Level 2, 40A charging station will be unveiled for the first time at EVS26 (The 26th World Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition), being held in Los Angeles, May 6-9.
