OpConnect, LLC, a technology leader in EV charging systems with more than 15,000 charging sessions via its OpConnect EV network, is pleased to add the optional Cord Management System to its product line.
OpConnect’s Cord Management System (CMS) is designed as an integral part of the charging station, reducing the costs of installing a separate system and resulting in an ascetically pleasing charging station.
The OpConnect CMS will return the charging cord to the charging station body after use, and provides clearly visible and easy-to-use “docking” ports for the industry-standard J1772 charge couplers in the front of the unit.
The OpConnect design uses a counterweight system (similar to the tried-and-true designs used for years on fossil fuel pumps) that minimizes the complexity and potential for maintenance issues.
The City of Portland is the first customer to install OpConnect Mark IIC units with the CMS.
OpConnect’s CMS option can also be retrofitted to currently installed OpConnect Mark II units.
OpConnect charging stations are located throughout the U.S. and provide charging in a variety of settings ranging from the workplace to retail shopping malls. The OpConnect EV charging station system has been in production since 2010.
The charging stations are tested and certified, according to national safety standards, and the charging network also supports industry standards, including being OCPP (Open Charge Point Protocol) compliant.
