We use L14-20 connectors in that sort of application. Dedicated outlets on the distro (Motion Labs) with 20 amp 2-pole breakers, 12/4 or bigger cable, and quad boxes or other breakouts to get to Edison.  We're not compatible with other companies L14-30 setups, but we don't need overcurrent devices aside from what's in the distro already. 

Locking connectors and two circuits per cable is reasonably handy for us.

I am moving to this system, too.  Not needing downstream breakers is very nice, and being able to simply swap out the quad box and have 2 x 120v circuits or 1 x 208/240v circuit - or even both at the same time with a passthrough is very handy.  Being able to use 12/4 and not needing to derate the cable for two circuits is an added bonus.

Thanks for the info.
