Charging Stations are Available in Three Levels – "Level 1", "Level 2", and "Level 3"

Here are the Three Charging Levels as specified by the National Electrical Code for Car Chargers:

  Voltage
(VAC)
Current
(Ampre)
Power
(kVA)
Phase Standard Outlet
Level 1
Residential Use
120 12 1.44 Single 120V 40 Amp grounded outlet
Level 2
Commercial, Municipal &
Residential Use
208/240 32 6.7/7.7 Single 220V 40 Amp grounded outlet
Level 3
Commercial & Municipal Use
480 4001 192 Three Three Phase 480V grounded outlet

 

Level 1 (120 Volt AC) - Primarily for Residential Use Only
Level 1 uses a dedicated 120-volt, single phase separate circuit 20-Amp three prong grounded outlet. Although it depends greatly on the vehicle you are charging, it typically takes between 8 to 14 hours to fully charge a vehicle. The biggest disadvantage is the length of time it takes to recharge a vehicle. Level 1 chargers require a grounded 120 –Volt 20 Amp separate circuit to power the level 1 car charging station. Level 1 stations are not intended for stop and go charging, Due to the extended length of time required to re-charge. Level 1 should only be used for overnight parking situations.

Level 2 (208-220-230 Volt AC) - Commercial, Municipal & Residential Use
Level 2 increases the charge power by 5x and decreases the typical full charge time down to 4-8 hours, thus the main advantage for Level 2 Charging is speed. Level 2 charging is the most popular system used for commercial, municipal, as well as residential applications used by the general public, as it offers a quick recharge time – half the time of Level 1. Level 2 requires a dedicated 220-volt single phase grounded separate circuit to power the Level 2 charging station. This voltage is commonly found in most commercial buildings.

Level 3 (480 Volt AC) - Strictly Commercial & Municipal Use Only
Unlike Level 1 and 2 charging systems, Level 2 offers rapid charging, fully charging an electric car battery in 30 minutes or less. Level 3 charging systems are the perfect choice for stop and go charging. Level 3 charging stations are capable of charging multiple electric cars, all at the same time. Level 3 charging is the perfect choice for travelers that are on the go, not expected to be in one place too long - whether they are shopping, eating at a restaurant, or making a quick stop at a municipality - Level 3 is the way to go!

Just Like "Pay at the Pump", Give Your Customers The Option!
Level 2 and 3 are available in a wide variety depending on your needs. NEC can help you choose the right charging station that’s right for both you, the provider, as well as the customer who will be plugging into it.
