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.
