What Are The Different Types of Commercial Receptacles Available?
Ungrounded Polarized – These are one of the most common types of receptacles. They feature two slots that are of different sizes. One of the slots accommodates the neutral wire, whereas the other one accommodates the hot wire.
Grounded Receptacles – These are commonly used in modern construction projects. They can receive a two-pronged plug that also has a ground plug or three-pronged plugs that include ground plugs. These types of plugs are considered more stable than ungrounded ones since they won’t come undone as easily as ungrounded ones.
GFCI Receptacles – GFCI is the acronym for ground fault circuit interrupter. These types of receptacles are commonly installed outdoors and in kitchens and bathrooms, basically anywhere where there is an increased likelihood of a ground fault occurring. GFCIs have circuit breakers built into them that prevent electricity from traveling anywhere except through the wire or appliance that it is supposed to travel through. This prevents any kind of shock or electrocution from traveling through the ground and harming humans.
240-Volt Receptacle – 240-volt receptacles have a T-shaped slot, a straight sideways slot and a ground slot. They come in 20-amp and 30-amp versions. Clothes dryers and electric range ovens are examples of the types of appliances used with these types of receptacles.
What Are The Benefits Of Newer Receptacles?
Newer receptacles are generally more beneficial than older ones because they are safer than older ones. Buildings that don’t have the proper types of receptacles installed in them could be in violation of building codes, which could end up costing them a lot in fines and fees. Additionally, new receptacles have a tendency to be more energy efficient as they have newer technology behind them. Give our technicians a call to find out exactly how a new electrical receptacle can benefit your commercial property.
