Each receptacle`s contacts are deep recessed to avoid accidental contact and will accept standard non explosion proof plugs that are NEMA 5-20R, or 6-20R compatible although explosion proof plugs must be used to preserve explosion proof approval in hazardous environments. Ordinary location plugs will NOT activate this cord`s explosion proof receptacles.
The ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protects against possible injury from unwanted ground faults. This GFCI monitors the amount of current flowing through the unit, and provides immediate identification of faults by tripping the circuit when an imbalance is detected. Both the GFCI and outlet are factory sealed, enclosing any potentially arcing components within the copper free aluminum bodies.
The GFCI protected outlet is mounted to a non-sparking aluminum back brace to provide additional support to the unit. The back brace features a cutout carrying handle to aid in transport and storage, allowing operators to pick up and carry the unit with one hand or for mounting with wall hooks. The EPEXC-GFI-20O-50 is ideal for extending the range of potable equipment within such as lighting systems, power tools, and other electrical equipment within environments where explosive vapors or flammable dusts exist or may exist.
Inter-Compatibility: These cords use T style plugs and will work with non-explosion proof standard receptacles and plugs (NEMA 5-15R, 5-20R, or 6-20R) but will not work with standard 120V wall outlets. The included plugs and receptacles are cross-interchangeable with Crouse Hind™ part# ENP5201 plugs and receptacles and Hubble-Killiark part# UGP-20231 ACCEPTOR® plugs and receptacles. Any equipment requiring these C-H or H-B plugs should work with these cords. Due to possible manufacturer changes we cannot guarantee interchangeability although we have made every effort to ensure cross compatibility correctness.
Suggested Applications: Manufacturing, Industrial, Warehouse, Lighting, Explosion Proof Light Fixtures, Grinders, Wet areas or Locations Where Combustible Dust is Present.
