Type 2 Mennekes Male plug
The plug is designed for use in EV charging cables and will plug into any compatible, Type 2, EVSE. It is the MALE side of the connection and so has PINS not SLEEVES (see photo).
The plug can be ordered with or without 1 or 3 phase, 16A (2.5mm2 CSA) or 32A (6.0mm2 CSA) copper wire tails pre-attached using an 8T hydraulic crimper. Standard cable lengths are 1, 3, & 5m. These come in a flexible black/orange conduit, 20mm in diameter (O/S dimension). Longer lengths may be ordered.
Both plug and socket are 3 phase (3P) compatible and come with 3P connections included - the only difference between 1P and 3P plugs is the size of the cable inlet. 1P plugs have a maximum cable diameter of 18mm; 3P plugs have a maximum cable diameter of 25mm. Therefore, if you want to use 16A, 3P cable, you can order a 1P plug as the cable entry will be large enough. If you want to use a 3P 32A cable you must order a 3 phase plug.
All pins/sleeves have a conductor entry hole of 4mm diameter, large enough for 10mm2 (60A-70A) conductors, maximum.
NOTE: The pins and sleeves in these plugs require crimping with a suitable (high power) crimper. An 8T hydraulic crimper can be purchased on our shop.
The Type 2 plug is compatible with all EU EVs eg:
