July 23, 2012, Greenville, SC – REMA, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of interconnect products announces the release of their UL recognized SAE J1772TM compliant DC Level 2 Fast Charge, “Combo”, plug and receptacle.

“We are excited to bring this “Combo” fast-charge coupler to the EV market.  This higher-power product leverages our expertise in the industrial vehicle charging market.  It’s no longer hype – it has been tested and proven as a viable coupler system.  We are appreciative to the Society of Automotive Engineers partner companies for their collaborative inputs and to the team at Underwriters Laboratories for their timely efforts in completing the compliance testing.” says Tim Rose, REMA’s General Manager.
