Type-2 charging connector IEC6296-2

Type-2 charging connector IEC6296-2 3D print model

Dimensionally accurate connector with individual pins and back cover plate.

The IEC 62196 Type 2 connector (often referred to as mennekes in reference to the company that originated the design) is used for charging electric cars, mainly within Europe. The connector is circular in shape, with a flattened top edge and originally specified for charging battery electric vehicles at 3–50 kilowatts, with a plug modified by Tesla capable of outputting 150 kilowatts. Electric power is provided as single-phase or three-phase alternating current (AC), or direct current (DC). In January 2013, the IEC 62196 Type 2 connector was selected by the European Commission as official charging plug within the European Union.[1] It has since been adopted as the recommended connector in some countries outside of Europe, including New Zealand.[2]
