Power cord length on 50l

Unread postby trimbandit » Mon Dec 18, 2017 4:57 pm

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right area to post this, so I apologize in advance.

I am soon to be the owner of a 50l which I will be hopefully brewing with over holiday break. It will be my first foray into electric brewing after about 10 years of brewing 10 gallon AG batches with propane and no automation.

Can someone tell me how long the power cord is for the 50l? I want to order an extension cord to convert the Braumeister to my l6-30r to the Braumeister, which I believe is c19, and I want to figure out what length I need.

Thank you!

From the outside edge of the bowl (where it exits from under the bowl) - 1.80m to the power plug. I found it easiest to have a 15A power point installed at the permanent location of my BM. 15A leads can be obtained from most larger hardware/electrical retailers.

For the 50l BM, look for rack mount replacement power cords. I burnt the pins when using an extension.

In New Zealand, I bought a replacement 15A NZ to C19 with 2.5mm core, 5m length.

In the US, did a quick search and found below site which sells modular cables in various lengths:

Reviving this thread.

I've just had my 50l BM delivered. Yay!

I'd prefer a 3 meter power cord to allow better positioning of the BM.

Does anyone know of a good quality 3m cord available in Australia?

G'day Cliffo',

Burned my first one out too (on loan from my electrician).

Have a spare now (not used) think I got it at Bunnings.

Got my electrician to put in a 15amp power point next to the BM location in garage. Some sl blackening at the points, but has lasted (>35 batches) quite a while now without problem.

Regards,

BMDrysdale.
