C13 protection plugs
« on: October 18, 2019, 10:46:43 pm »
Hi
I ordered an Offline UPS with the IEC Plugs/ C13. So I need to cover quite all because the get on behind the Table and will just maintained every some month. I want to cover the Ports to prevent Dust and other Stuff to get into and maybe cause a Fire. I found them:

Well I dont want something who is pocked into the UPS Power Plugs.
Are the some similar Plugs?
Thanks

Electrical tape; start with the sticky side out at the smaller end to prevent a sticky mess when removed and after you have covered the plug, twist the tape over and wrap it sticky side in.

You are looking for a solution to a problem that does not exist.

Much of this post is incomprehensible, but if you google for “c13 cover” and “c13 cap” you’ll find plenty. (Are you trying to say you want a cover without pins?)

That said, unless you’re operating them in an environment with some combination of metal dust and moisture, I don’t think it’s necessary. (If the regular wall outlets are unprotected, then there’s no need to seal the UPS outlets.)  I’ve never heard of anyone ever doing this, other than to cover extra ports to prevent overloading the UPS, which is what many of the covers are specifically sold for.

Looks like a nice justification to get that 3D printer.  ;)

But what is wrong with those plastic blanking covers? Eg: Bulgin 14228

The plugs are sealed, I never saw C13 plugs with holes that allow for dust ingress..

Maybe apply some mesh on the UPS openings, but covering the plugs wont prevent any dust ingress...

Its this one:


Since I plug some PoE extender and maybe a Switch into I decided to buy the C13 Version to get directly with the power cable from the UPC to the Device.
