The HCS-60 and HCS-80, two of ClipperCreek's highest-powered Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations, are now available in ruggedized configurations. The HCS-60R and HCS-80R feature rubber over-molded SAE-J1772 connectors for added impact and crush resistance and field-replaceable connector latches, and they are backed by five-year warranties. These high-power, ruggedized charging stations offer high-power level 2 charging solutions designed specifically for heavy utilization fleets, public parking lots, and extreme weather locations. The ruggedized option is offered at $100 in addition to the base price of $899 for the HCS-60 and $969 for the HCS-80.

"We saw great customer acceptance with our first set of ruggedized products, the HCS-40R and PMD-10R, and have continued to receive requests for the higher-powered ruggedized options," said Will Barrett, ClipperCreek Director of Sales. "ClipperCreek's standard products are very robust; all have NEMA 4 rated enclosures for indoor or outdoor installs. The over-molded ruggedized SAE-J1772 connector takes our already tough products to another level."

Features of the HCS-60R and HCS-80R include 11.5-15.4 kW of power to charge electric vehicles quickly, impact and crush resistant SAE-J1772 connector, Type 4X watertight and corrosion-resistant rubber over-molded EV connector, slim high-power cable design for improved flexibility and cold weather performance, and 25 ft of charging cable for installation flexibility and superior vehicle reach.

For customers desiring access control, ClipperCreek offers ChargeGuard, compatible with the HCS-60R and HCS-80R. ChargeGuard is a key-based access control solution designed for fleet, workplace, multi-tenant, hospitality, and residential charging applications. Share2 allows power sharing from a single circuit between two charging stations.
