Smartplug Receptacles

Aug 11, 2020

The inherent safety features SmartPlug electrical receptacles are known for are now available in configurations for the shoreside connection. These new models from SmartPlug Systems simplify power pedestal upgrades at marinas and enable use in standard outdoor electrical boxes for the private dock owner. They’re offered in 30A, 125V and 50A, 125/250V versions, with optional separate weather doors.  

Traditional twist-type AC shore power connectors rely on thin, easily corroded blades for a connection—both on the boat and shoreside. With a unique pin and clip design, SmartPlug offers 20 times the metal-to-metal contact for maximum electrical transfer. More importantly, this drastically reduces the likelihood of arcing and overheating, which are leading causes of marina and boat fires.

The SmartPlug is designed to self-align and push straight in, making it especially easy for transient boaters to use in unfamiliar marinas at night. As the connection is made, the device cleans itself. The plug automatically locks securely into the receptacle.

SmartPlug Weather Doors are available in vertical and horizontal configurations, with 50A knockouts. Like the receptacles, industry-standard sizing and hole patterns make installation easy, whether into a pedestal or outdoor electrical box.

This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
