FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62196-2 has been prepared by IEC subcommittee 23H: Plugs,

socket-outlets and couplers for industrial and similar applications, and for electric vehicles, of

IEC technical committee 23: Electrical accessories.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2011 and constitutes a

technical revision.

This second edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the

previous edition.
a) Standard sheets for configurations type 2 and type 3 have been updated.
b) Configuration type 2 is now available with optional shutter.

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or

INTRODUCTION

Responding to global challenges of CO reduction and energy security, the automobile

industries have been accelerating the development and commercialization of electric vehicles

and hybrid electric vehicles. In addition to the prevailing hybrid electric vehicles, battery

electric vehicles including plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are going to be mass-marketed. To

support the diffusion of such vehicles, this standard provides the standard interface

configurations of a.c. vehicle couplers and accessories to be used in conductive charging of

electric vehicles, taking the most frequent charging situations into consideration.

IEC 62196 is divided into several parts:
Part 1: General requirements

Part 2: Dimensional compatibility and interchangeability requirements for a.c. pin and

contact-tube accessories

Part 3: Dimensional compatibility and interchangeability requirements for d.c. and a.c./d.c.
