North Shore Safety introduces Level 2 Charging Station

Rated at 32 amps, the LineGard EVSE2 can provide up to 25 miles per charging hour to an EV.

North Shore Safety, a provider of electrical protection solutions for over 25 years, recently announced its latest LineGard EVSE2 Level 2 Charging Station. Since the NEC’s introduction of Article 625 in 1996, safe EV charging standards have been mandated for EV manufacturers. One of the key requirements is the integration of a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI), which prevents electrical shock to users. According to the press release, NSS has built a strong reputation in high-amperage GFCIs and was even instrumental in designing and manufacturing Tesla’s first Level 2 charging system for its Roadster EV.

Rated at 32 amps, the LineGard EVSE2 can provide up to 25 miles per charging hour to an electric vehicle. Moreover, it incorporates Class C GFCI technology (18mA +/- 2) for the highest level of electrical protection. Housed in a NEMA 3R rated enclosure, the charging station offers a level of protection against environmental conditions, the company said.

“This is especially true for Level 2 charging, as The LineGard EVSE2 can charge an EV up to six times faster than conventional Level 1 charging systems. As always, our focus is on setting new benchmarks in safety and efficiency remains uncompromised,” said Sean Swick, president, North Shore Safety.

At Auto China 2024, CATL unveiled Shenxing Plus—an LFP battery that achieves a range above 1,000 km. (approx. 621 miles) with 4C superfast charging. CATL said the cathode of Shenxing Plus is made with a granular gradation technology, which places every nanometer particle in a position to achieve ultra-high compact density. The company adds its proprietary 3D honeycomb-shaped material to the anode, which it said boosts the energy density while effectively controlling the volume expansion during charge and discharge cycles. According to CATL, the single-piece casing also optimizes the internal space utilization, allowing the Shenxing Plus cells to reach a high energy density level. At the system level, the company said its Shenxing Plus battery pack has a topological structure optimized on top of module-free CTP 3.0 technology, enhancing the packing efficiency by 7%. The Shenxing battery system's energy density surpasses the 200 Wh/kg threshold for the first time, reaching 205 Wh/kg, making ranges over 1,000 kilometers a reality.
