Plug & socket types - World Standards

IEC62196Type1

Type 1 connector as defined in the IEC 62196-2 standard. Also called Yazaki after the original manufacturer or SAE J1772 after the standard that first published it. Mostly used in combination with 120V single phase or up to 240V single phase infrastructure.

IEC62196Type1CCS

Type 1 based combo connector as defined in the IEC 62196-3 standard. The connector is based on the Type 1 connector – as defined in the IEC 62196-2 standard – with two additional direct current (DC) contacts to allow DC fast charging.

IEC62196Type2CableAttached

Type 2 connector as defined in the IEC 62196-2 standard. Provided as a cable and plug attached to the charging point

IEC62196Type2Outlet

Type 2 connector as defined in the IEC 62196-2 standard. Provided as a socket set into the charging point.

IEC62196Type2CCS

Type 2 based combo connector as defined in the IEC 62196-3 standard. The connector is based on the Type 2 connector – as defined in the IEC 62196-2 standard – with two additional direct current (DC) contacts to allow DC fast charging.

IEC62196Type3

Type 3 connector as defined in the IEC 62196-2 standard. Also called Scame after the original manufacturer. Mostly used in combination with up to 240V single phase or up to 420V three phase infrastructure.

Chademo

CHAdeMO connector named after an association formed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company and industrial partners. Because of this is is also known as the TEPCO's connector. It supports fast DC charging.

GBT20234Part2

China Part 2 connector as defined in the GB/T 20234.2-2015 standard. The name of the standard is sometimes used to refer to the connector (e.g. GB/T part 2 or even GB/T 20234.2). Mostly used in combination with 220V single phase, but can be extended to work with three phase infrastructure.

GBT20234Part3

China Part 3 connector as defined in the GB/T 20234.3-2015 standard. The name of the standard is sometimes used to refer to the connector (e.g. GB/T part 3 or even GB/T 20234.3). It supports fast DC charging.

IEC60309AC3PhaseRed

Industrial Red connector is a connector defined in the IEC 60309 standard. It is sometime referred to as by some combination of the standard, the color and the fact that it supports three phases. The connector usually has the "3P+N+E, 6h" configuration.

IEC60309AC1PhaseBlue

Industrial Blue connector is a connector defined in the IEC 60309 standard. It is sometime referred to as by some combination of the standard, the color and the fact that is a single phase connector. The connector usually has the "P+N+E, 6h" configuration.

IEC60309DCWhite

Industrial White connector is a DC connector defined in the IEC 60309 standard.

Tesla

The Tesla connector is the regionally specific Tesla Supercharger connector. I.e. it refers to either Tesla's proprietary connector, sometimes referred to as Tesla Port mostly limited to North America or the modified Type 2 (DC over Type 2) in Europe.
