The Saf-D-Grid® Ultra Short Receptacle is now being manufactured in a halogen free, high temperature housing material to meet equipment manufactures' desire to offer eco-friendly devices. Saf-D-Grid® is a 25 amp 600 volt capable DC connector system which is size compatible with the IEC 320 C13 and C14 AC standard panel cut out. The Ultra Short Receptacle minimizes space requirements within the device and also allows solder termination to wires. Saf-D-Grid® is the only connector system so sized that is UL rated for safe disconnect of a 400 VDC, 20 amp load.


The APP® Saf-D-Grid® is also the only connector with "Registered Product" status for the EMerge Alliance® standard for 380 volt (+/- 190) DC power distribution systems for use in data centers and telecom central offices. This connector system provides a critical link in the broad scale adoption of 380 VDC power distribution systems by providing a safe power interconnect for power supplies, power distribution units, and peripheral devices. Compared to best in class AC systems, industry estimates the following benefits for a 380 VDC power distribution architecture:

2 to 10 times more reliable
7 to 15% more energy efficient
10 to 33% less space required
Up to 30% reduction in maintenance
6 to 10% lower CAPEX equipment costs
Simplified integration of on-site energy generation and storage
