GracePort® Breakdown

Click on a part of the GracePort® or a segment of the code below for a detailed explanation.

    UL: UL provides safety-related certification, validation, testing, inspection, auditing, advising and training services to a wide range of clients, including manufacturers, retailers, policymakers, regulators, service companies, and consumers. UL is one of several companies approved to perform safety testing by the US federal agency Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA maintains a list of approved testing laboratories, which are known as Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories.

    CSA: CSA test products for compliance to national and international standards, and issue certification marks for qualified products. Certification marks tell customers and users that a product has been evaluated by a formal process– involving examination, testing and follow-up inspection–and that it complies with applicable standards for safety and performance.

    CE: The CE Mark on a product or machine identifies it as complying with all the of safety requirements established by the European Union. The CE Mark is a requirement and not a voluntary process.

    UL 508: Since the GracePort® products are UL recognized a UL 508 shop must have the product item number or at least the UL CCN NITW2 in their UL file. The customer must contact UL to add information to their UL file. Please note the following:

    The GracePorts® are referred to as:

    • UL TYPE 1
    • UL Type 3R
    • UL TYPE 4
    • UL TYPE 4X
    • UL TYPE 12

    *This is only if the faceplate is marked with UL. If not marked with UL logo then the product has no UL rating.

      Components: There are various connectors available and are represented by a 2- to 3-digit code found between the first two dashes of our GracePort® part number layout. Multiple connectors in a GracePort® are listed alpha-numerically, as seen here: P-P11R2-K3RF3-UXXX. For more information on the many connectors we offer, please click here (link to Component Page, which opens as a new window).

      Housing Size & UL Rating: Several housing types are available to meet your needs. The size of your housing depends on several variables including the kinds of components you choose, the power option you want and, in some cases, the UL Rating you need. UL ratings offered include UL Type 1, 3R, 4, 4X, 7, 9, and 12. The code for the housing size and UL rating is represented in our example by a letter/number combination: P-P11R2-K3RF3-UXXX. For more information on housing types and UL Ratings please click here. (Link to Housing/UL Rating, which opens a new window.)

      Power Option / Circuit Breaker: Many power options for international and domestic use are available and are represented by a 1-, 2- or 3-lettercode. Because circuit breakers offer the ability to limit what devices can be run through the GracePort®, we offer different amperage, which is represented by the amperage number following the power option code as seen here: P-P11R2-K3RF3-UXXX. For more information please click here (link to Power Option / Circuit Breaker page in new window.)
