Type 1 SAE J1772 AC EV Charging Cables

Type 1 J1772 AC charging cables for electric vehicles (EV) are designed and manufactured for residential and public charging applications. They are available from Volex in charging currents from 16A up to 80A AC. These charging cables meet the SAE J1772 specifications relevant to the North American EV market segment and are available in both UL Listed and UL recognised cable configurations per UL 2251 / UL 62 standards.

Volex’ Type 1 J1772 AC charging cables include a unibody, seamless coupler design with no external fasteners to prevent user tampering. The single piece body design provides users with enhanced sealing to ensure safe electrical performance and better mechanical strength, high durability and IP67 ingress protection.

These EV charging cables are capable of high mating cycle requirements, with testing completed to 10,000 mating cycles. Additionally, they meet UL 62 cold impact requirements and are RoHS compliant. Standard cable lengths are 5m, 7.5m and 10m, with customised length options available.
