The WIKI page on the MAGNE CHARGE

The briefing :

J1773 standard, now virtually obsolete, produced and largely installed by GM for the EV1 1996 to 2002.

6KW charger, using a unique inductive paddle with wireless communication to the vehicle being charged.

Most of the personal charging stations are model TCG2000, I have only been able to find documentation for the WP7200 there are some similarities.

Disassembly of a Magne Charger revealed 4 things :

1- Someone was seriously concerned about people being electrocuted when charging there EV to have gone to this much trouble.

2- J1772 todays level II standard wins hands down, it's simple.

J1772 is cheap to build despite some charge station costs and no one has been electrocuted that I know of.

3- Not serviceable without schematics, semiconductors labeled with in house numbers.

4- Impressively built,solid enough to be hit by an out of control EV or an angry ICE driver tired of the price of gas.
