Appleton's portable receptacle/GFCI combo provides required circuit protection in hazardous or wet industrial locations
Appleton has expanded its U-Line series of electrical receptacles to include a Class I, Division 1 and 2 portable receptacle/GFCI combination.
The company's U-Line 125VAC portable receptacle and GFCI deliver open neutral protection to protect plant personnel against the risk of electrical shock, while also safeguarding the connected apparatus against damage from short circuits and current overload. Engineered to safely work in environments classified by the National Electrical Code (NEC) as "hazardous" due to the presence of explosive liquids or gases, the combo also meets all UL and CSA requirements for non-hazardous locations.
The U-Line portable receptacle and GFCI are made of lightweight copper-free aluminum and weigh 7.5 lbs. It features a GFCI designed in accordance with OSHA requirements for 20 amp receptacles, along with a built-in carrying handle and a heavy-duty three-foot SO power cord with a U-Line 20A NEMA 5-20P plug.
A highly visible pilot light indicates that the GFCI is engaged and that the receptacle is ready for use. Pilot lights are available in green or red, LED or incandescent. The U-Line portable receptacle and GFCI are for use in conjunction with Appleton U-Line factory-sealed Model B receptacles or with standard 5-20R receptacles on 20A, 125VAC branch circuits.
