Originally very popular amongst electric brewers were 240V AC 30 amp GFI cords that were previously used to power Xerox copy machines (shown at right). There was a time where they were available on eBay for less than a double-pole 30 amp GFI breaker. It's important to note however these cords have a trip setting of 10mA (slightly above the United States NEC requirements).

Cords with built-in GFI that support both 240V and 120V and adhere to the National Electrical Code (NEC) standards for response time (25ms) and current rating (4-6ma) are incredibly difficult to find, and very expensive. We recommend installing a 30A double-pole GFI breaker in the electrical panel instead.
