Many electric vehicle chargers are difficult for people with physical challenges to use. Manually wrapped cables are difficult to use and transport to the car. Cables frequently end up on the ground, where they can impede wheelchair movement, and can be unsafe to reach down and pick up.

EVSE LLC has developed a unique patent-pending automatic cable management system that provides easy EV charger access for everyone. When the charger is activated, the unit lowers the cable and connector to an ADA-compliant height. The user extends the cable to the required length (up to 18 feet) and plugs it into the vehicle. When disconnected, charging stops and the unit automatically retracts the cable and connector to an overhead storage position.

Automatic cable management systems are ideal for public locations, as they:
• Reduce liability from tripping hazards & false claims
• Prevent damage to connectors from contact with snow, rain, ice & salt
• Protect cables from vehicles and vandals
• Keep grime off customers' hands & clothes for a positive user experience
• Ensure access for people with disabilities by removing obstacles (cables) from the pathway
