EVSE LLC's EV Level 2 and Level 1 chargers offer patent-pending automatic cable management that is ADA and OSHA compliant. Charging station cables never touch the ground when charging a vehicle and when not connected to a vehicle. This design protects pedestrians from tripping accidents, and protects property owners from risk and false accident claims while keeping cables out of the pathway for persons with disabilities. EVSE LLC's cable retraction ensures OSHA compliance at the work place which mandates keeping live cables off the ground. With a full line of electric car charging stations, charger network management options including Open Charge Protocol (OCPP), usage reporting and payment options and EV charger testers, EVSE LLC offers charging solutions that adapt to your operations. With installations at major US utilities, state and local governments, universities, airports and parking facilities, EVSE LLC is an established innovator in the industry.
EVSE is a division of Control Module Inc. Founded in 1969, CMI has developed innovative products that are used worldwide for automated data collection and workforce management, fleet management, vehicle electrification and electric vehicle supply. Along with its founder, James Bianco, the Company holds more than 100 patents.
Headquartered in Enfield, Connecticut, EVSE's products are designed and manufactured in the United States, with a dedicated production and support team that has been committed to excellence for over four decades.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Garage Overhead Charger for Public & Private Parking Garages. EVSE LLC's Garage Overhead Charger provides safe and affordable electric vehicle charging for commercial parking garages, multi-dwelling units and private garages. The weather-proof unit is installed on the ceiling, safely keeping the cable and connector away from water, salt and automobiles. The retractable cable also protects pedestrians from tripping hazards, and protects the unit from vandals. The charger can be configured to activate by local or remote control, and when triggered, will automatically lower the charging connecter to an ADA-compliant height. The user then extends the cable and plugs it into their vehicle. When disconnected, the charger automatically retracts to the original overhead position. Delete if not required.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** The 3704 AutoCoil EVSE with automatic cable management offers the most advanced electric vehicle charging in the market today. The unit is engineered and manufactured for ease of use by any EV customer - just plug in, charge, and after disconnecting just walk the cable back as it retracts back into the housing automatically.
The model 3704 provides 220V AC up to 30A. Designed as per the SAE J1772 requirements to meet or exceed all safety codes specified by UL and NEC, the unit is engineered for commercial interior or exterior locations and comes in wall and single/dual pole mounted versions. The 3704 meets or exceeds all NEMA 250 CLASS 3R specifications.
The 3704 is equipped with a state-of-the-art cable management system, which fully retracts and protects the 20-foot cable from harsh weather and vandals. The cable management system is ADA and OSHA compliant by keeping cables off the ground when connected to a vehicle and when not connected. There are tens of thousands of chargers today with cables on the ground in weather and in the pathway of pedestrians creating a public safety hazard. EVSE is the leader in EV charger cable management design that addresses OSHA and ADA requirements.
Modular in design, the model 3704 can be configured for simple on-off control, or the more demanding requirements of credit/debit and ID card processing, vehicle sensors or parking control systems. EVSE chargers are compatible with Open Charge Alliance charger networks from Greenlots and OpConnect. This ensures universal access to chargers without proprietary membership required. Smart Grid and Demand Response capable, EVSE is designed to optimize sustainable energy initiatives.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Integrated Payment Solutions for Charging Stations. EVSE flexible payment and secure access solutions adapt to what's in place. It's your property, and if you own the chargers, any revenue should go directly to your account and not a charging station operator. EVSE integrates with in-place revenue collection, credit card billing, pre-paid monthly cards and secure access (e.g. gate and ticket) systems. Why introduce new member cards or extra credit card fees? Our solution is: Simple. Easy. Smart. If you prefer a separate system our wall/pole mounted Payment Module is designed with the operating capabilities needed for multi-space charging stations. We also have our own encrypted PCI compliant credit card service. Payment and usage data are transmitted via a number of communication and network options, requiring little customization during installation. Delete if not required.

EVSE adapts to customer's existing RFID, Proximity and Secure Access system badges and readers. This eliminates complexity by using what customers and employees are familiar with. EVSE's extensive line of charging products is designed to support modular control unit options, allowing any controller to be installed on any charger. This design supports easy repair and allows controls to be changed at a later date if needed. All EVSE Control Modules feature State-of-Charge (SOC) lighted indicators, showing that the charger is on, that the J1772 is properly connected and that the vehicle is charging. An additional light displays if there is a problem. Delete if not required
