Saf-D-Grid Data Sheet 


Saf-D-Grid® 300 is designed specifically for single-phase AC applications requiring higher voltages, smaller size, and expanded current carrying capability. Performance up to 30A, 300V is achieved by using the same silver-plated, pure copper contact system and durable thermoplastic insulators as the original Saf-D-Grid for 400V DC. All Saf-D-Grid receptacles fit within the same panel cutout as IEC 60320 C13 / C14 connectors.


30A capability on #10 AWG cable expands the power handling to 140% of comparably sized IEC connectors, in a size 80% smaller than NEMA connectors with similar power handling capabilities. Saf-D-Grid also offers an operating temperature up to 80˚C which is greater than IEC or NEMA connectors which are limited by use of brass contacts. The 120 ˚C receptacle is constructed of high temperature glass-filled nylon making it ideal for power supplies where the hot exhaust is directed onto the power inlet connector.


Both the plug and receptacle side are touch-safe to maximize operator safety at hazardous voltages. Mechanical keys differentiate source from load sides preventing accidental short circuits from plugging both cable ends into the power source. The integral latch on the plug housing prevents accidental disconnect of power without the need for added accessories such as metal bail latches or hook & loop fabric straps. An optional ground-tied shield is available to minimize the EMI profile of power supplies.
