Product Details Supplier Info More products

Schurter has expanded its standard line of power-inlet connectors and cord sets for the V-Lock system, with more than 50 appliance power-inlet connectors and power-entry modules and more than 40 power cables with various plugs, lengths and current ratings available from stock.

The V-Lock system is designed to guarantee that a power cable cannot be inadvertently pulled out of equipment. The cord connector is equipped with a pin that interlocks with a notch in the appliance inlet. A finger press on the release lever frees the interlock.

Plug retention is said to be very useful wherever there is the possibility that power could be unintentionally interrupted. Typical applications include medical equipment, laboratory and analysis instruments, telecommunication and IT equipment, industrial robots, power-outlet strips and equipment in television or radio studios.

For medical applications, Schurter also offers power-entry modules with medical filters and fuse holders, as well as improved protection against accidental contact.
