What are the feeder circuit requirements for an EV Charging station?

Product Line:
PTEVC - ELECTRICAL VEHICLE

Resolution:
The EVlink series of Level 2 charging station require a 40A, non-GFI type breaker for each charging outlet.  #8 wire is required (L1, L2, and GND).  For dual outlet charging stations, two 40A non-GFI breakers will be required (one for each charging outlet).  A neutral connection is not required for EVlink stations.
A 40A circuit breaker is required as the continuous output current from the charging station can be as high as 30A. 
The wiring dagram for a single outlet charging station is shown in the figure below.
