With the 'V-Lock' system, SCHURTER launches an attractive and simple cord retaining solution for IEC appliance couplers 10A and 16A.
Various connectors, power entry modules and several country-specific power supply cords are available with this option.
The pin in the socket interlocks with a notch in the plug, preventing unintentional pull-out of the power cable. This eliminates the need for a specific socket system or retaining device that has to be adapted and built-in.
The locking is released by pressing on the releasing lever, which is easily identified by its bright yellow colour and thus distinguishes this system from existing power cable connections. The extraction force has a minimum of 200 N.
These cord retainers can be used for a range of applications including:
- Medical appliances
- Analysis and laboratory instruments
- Equipment, telecom and IT devices; and
- Power distribution or radio and TV studio equipment
