Top selling EVSE manufacturer releases high-powered 40 amp EV charging station
AUBURN, Calif., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ClipperCreek has added the HCS-50 electric vehicle charging station to their product line. The HCS-50 is a powerful and rugged 40 amp station paired with a highly durable rubber overmolded cable and vehicle connector. Offering power, reliability and value, this 240 volt, level 2 electric vehicle charging station, rated for both indoor and outdoor use, is priced at $835. A plug-in version, the HCS-50P, is also available with a NEMA 6-50 plug for $859.
Built to serve the residential and commercial markets, the HCS-50 has ClipperCreek's standard product features, including a 3-year warranty, a fully sealed, rugged NEMA 4 station enclosure, and 25 feet of charge cable. It also boasts additional features that make it unique in the high power EV charging station market. "We used rubber over-molding to fully seal the connector's head and increase the durability. That's critical in commercial and fleet environments. The rubber cable jacket increases low temperature flexibility of the cable, so it's also a great station for colder climates," said Jason France, President and Founder of ClipperCreek.
"The HCS-50's rugged design and ample 25 foot charging cable make it a perfect solution for fleet and commercial applications," said ClipperCreek Sales Manager, Will Barrett.

The HCS-50P provides the maximum power available through a standard 240V, 50 amp outlet allowing users to utilize existing NEMA 50 amp outlets.
