He must be referring to hard-wiring the power cord into the control panel with a strain relief, rather than using an inlet receptacle. Otherwise, I'm stumped.

This. If anyone has found a 20A inlet receptacle, I'd like to know where.

How many poles, how many wires, grounded or not? 120v or 240v? There are options out there, depending upon what you are seeking (NEMA and non-NEMA inlets, Neutrik Powercons, etc.)
