GracePort by Grace Engineered Products

November, 2017 | Lindsey Shepard

GracePorts are communication ports that allow workers to access control panels easily through closed doors, which eliminates the risk of contamination to the panel. Thru-door access enhances compliance to NFPA 70E / CSA Z462 as well as global electrical safety standards. Our ability to fully customize your GracePort® to meet your precise needs means never having to compromise safety.a guide to customizing your graceport


Varieties of components are available and can be paired together in your fully customizable GracePort®. Whether you need something as common as an RJ45 or as unique as a DVI female-to-female feed-thru bulkhead, Grace Engineered Products can design and create a GracePort® that fits your precise need.

Housing Size and UL Ratings

Whether you need 304 or 316 Stainless Steel, Surface Mount, or our Thru-View® panel mount housing, our housings are all UL rated.

UL Type 4

Either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection against falling rain, splashing water and hose-directed water; undamaged by the formation of ice on the enclosure.

UL Type 4X

Either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection against falling rain, splashing water and hose-directed water; undamaged by the formation of ice on the enclosure; resists corrosion.

UL Type 12

Indoor use to provide a degree of protection against dust, dirt, fiber flyings, dripping water and external condensation of noncorrosive liquids.

UL Type 3R

Outdoor use to provide a degree of protection against falling rain; undamaged by the formation of ice on the enclosure.

GracePort Hazardous Location Housing

The Hazardous Location GracePort (M7) is intended for environments where the user must do a “sniff test” and typically obtain a “Hot Work Permit” before opening the enclosure. Computer access ports and specific network solutions are available for Ethernet, DeviceNet, Data Highway Plus, Modbus Plus, Profibus, Fipway and others. The housing is especially well suited for use with the GracePort Low Profile Circuit Board for ease of field wiring.

Housings only meet both domestic and international code requirements.

Class I, Div. 1 & 2, Groups A,B,C,D

Class I, Zones 1 & 2, Groups IIB +H2, IIA

Class II, Div. 1 & 2, Groups E,F,G

Class III

NEMA 3,4,7 (B,C,D), 9 (E,F,G)


GracePort Stainless Steel Housing (Non-UL)

NEW GracePort #304 Stainless Steel JB7 Housing protects all the components, circuit breakers and power options featured on our fully customizable GracePort. The durable design mounts securely to the outside of an enclosure and provides protection for valuable components from dust, dirt, oil, water, and other environmental contaminants found in highly corrosive industrial settings.

The JB7 Stainless Steel Housing features a low profile ideal for tight spots, tool entry with a quarter-turn latch and padlock ability for restricted access.

GracePort Stainless Steel UL Type 4X Housing

Keep stainless steel enclosures closed with the #304 or #316 stainless steel GracePort® interface. Grace offers thousands of combinations of cables, connectors, and outlets, all available to ship in days!
The M5 & M6 Stainless Steel Housings are UL Recognized and are the perfect solution for enclosures with limited space. The extended profile on the M5 & M6 Housings accommodates for any additional component wiring within the electrical enclosure. A padlock-able door with a screw-down clamp provides tool access for qualified personnel.

Power/Circuit Breaker

We have various power options for international and domestic use available. Because circuit breakers offer the ability to limit what devices can be run through the GracePort, we offer different amperages to fit your exact need.


We customize. That’s what sets a GracePort® apart from other communication ports. We can create a custom-built GracePort, including special text, cut-outs, cable lengths, and even add your company logo, all in just a few days. Assembled in the USA and created just the way you want it.
