ClipperCreek’s most popular 32 Amp charging station now offered with overmolded connector, field-replaceable connector latch, and five year warranty, ideal for extreme conditions

Auburn, CA – The HCS-40, ClipperCreek’s best-selling 32 Amp, Level 2 electric vehicle charging station, is now available with a “Ruggedized” option. The HCS-40R and HCS-40PR (with NEMA 6-50 or 14-50 plugs), feature a rubber overmolded SAE-J1772 connector, a field-replaceable connector latch, and a five year warranty. The HCS-40R and HCS-40PR are affordable solutions designed for fleet, parking lot, and extreme weather conditions. The Ruggedized option is offered at an excellent value of $100 in addition to the affordable base price of $565 for the hardwired HCS-40 and $589 for the plug-in HCS-40P.

“Once again, ClipperCreek earns its reputation for high-quality, high-reliability, and great value EVSEs,” said Erik Mason, ClipperCreek Business Operations Manager. “For busy fleet and public sites, there is no charging station better suited to take care of the job. ClipperCreek’s products all have NEMA 4 enclosures for indoor/outdoor installs. The ruggedized SAE-J1772 connector takes our already tough products to another level. Low cost, great value, and high reliability wins again.”

“As the market matures, we have found that the electric vehicle connector can take a real beating in some environments,” said Jason France, President and Founder of ClipperCreek. “Our commitment to the electric vehicle market drives us to bring the greatest value to our customers.  Customers have asked for an even tougher connector option. In response, we developed a new overmolded connector with a replaceable latch. We stand behind this connector’s durability by pairing it with a 5 year product warranty.”
