Like I said in previous messages, I have replaced the Avcon "claw" with a
current J1772 connector. I got the connector from Rush at TusconEV. It works
fine with my 2011 Leaf.

They do use a 14-50 male plug to go from the claw to the EVSE. There is a
switch to switch between the 14-50 40 amp and a 120v 20 amp normal wall type
plug.This was made in 1997. They use the Neutral or bottom connector across
from the ground to carry what I think is a pilot signal. Yes on
This is the result. The problem. Figuring out if it has a pilot wire and
module. Lawrence Rhodes

The Avcon connector is as specified in SAE J1772-2001.
The standard inlet is capable of AC Level 1 and 2 charging and is required to
support only 4 out of 9 possible contacts:
Contact #1 (4.6mm dia): charger 1 (AC hot or Neutral in the case of Level 1
Contact #2 (4.6mm dia): charger
The AVCON did not have a proximity wire,
because proximity of the Claw was sensed by a magnet embedded in the claw
closing a magnetic relay contact inside the inlet,
so you would see two same-color wires on the inlet that were shorted together
when the Claw was close.
AVCON did use the
Avcon was very through in star screw binding and gluing together the CLAW.
After application of mallet and screwdriver the insides were reveled.
Comparing the contact surfaces on the front to the back wires. Bottom. Ground.
Center left. Hot. Center Right. Hot. One from right. Probably
Is this similar?
