It looks like a type 1 (J1772) setup, as is common in the USA with their single phase preference.

But all you probably need is a cable like this one to adapt a type 2 EVSE to what I presume will be your type 1 socket:

I use that cord with my 2012 Leaf, which has a type 1 socket.

No socket purchased yet. Been informed by thunderstuck.

The EVCC 2.4 can handle J1772. To connect with Type 2 J1772, customers have been manually grounding the proximity wire (12v negative) to start the charge. Hopefully that will work for you.

Best,

John

Just had a play with the canbus.
Reminds me of my old Amstrad
10 goto line 30
20 go to line 10
30 go to line 20.
