Control Panel Power Cord
Two power cords are available:
- 30A power cord: For powering the 30A control panel. It plugs into a standard 4-slot North American dryer wall receptacle (240V/30A NEMA 14-30R with ground).
- 50A power cord: For powering the 50A control panel. It plugs into a standard 4-slot North American stove wall receptacle (240V/50A NEMA 14-50R with ground).
A ground fault interrupter (GFI) must be used and may be installed in one of two places: Either in the circuit breaker in your home's electrical panel, or in-line with the control panel power cord.
We recommend that you check that whatever GFI you intend on using adheres to your local electrical code in terms of trip settings and speed of operation.
A GFI is an absolute requirement for safe brewing. Do not confuse a GFI with a circuit breaker: A circuit breaker saves equipment, a GFI saves lives.
The power cords are 10 feet long and feature a locking female connector on the control panel side for added safety. Custom lengths are available. Email us with your requirements.
For more information see our section on control panel supply power.
