SEATTLE, Wash. — To say that the design of the traditional twist-type power cord connector is old is an understatement, SmartPlug Systems reported in a press release. Still in use today and barely changed, these devices are hazardous, out of date and a common cause of electrical fires, the release continued. SmartPlug Systems has a safer solution for today’s modern motorcoach and trailer owner.
The SmartPlug is a waterproof inlet and connector with 20 times the metal contact than traditional twist-type plugs. This maximizes the electrical transfer, and reduces the arcing, resistance and resultant overheating that leads to fire.
The SmartPlug sleeve design pushes straight in and locks in places with two levers, all with one hand. Its asymmetrical design makes it simple to connect the power, even in the dead of night.
The SmartPlug has been thoroughly tested by independent laboratories. It’s Intertek ETL listed and the only shore power plug to be UL certified. IMANNA proved it waterproof by subjecting it to 30 days of salt fog.
The inlet is available in four versions: white, grey and black polymer, and stainless steel. It’s available in 30A/125V or 50A 125/250V.
