Lockable powerCON cable connectors meet safety standards for mains supplies
Neutrik has introduced the powerCON XX series of single-phase (three-conductor) lockable, rugged power connectors with circuit breaking capability, certified to comply with the latest relevant worldwide device safety regulations for mains supply connectors.
The connectors’ blue power-in and grey power-out colour coding is coupled with discrete power-in and power-out keying to prevent the intermating of power cables. The simple, reliable twist locking system works together with Neutrik’s locking bushing and strain relief features to provide a robust interconnect where dual component bushing additionally improves cable kink protection, said the company.
These features, coupled with Neutrik’s general standards of robust and reliable construction, provide for an exceptionally rugged connector component, with an ergonomic design that features a slip-proof two-compound moulded housing that is easy to assemble, with the strain relief mechanically locking with the insert to align with the housing.
The powerCON XX connectors comply with latest device standards, such as IEC62368-1, IEC60799 or UL817, in the EU, UK, US and Canada, and meet relevant global safety regulations for mains power connectors in accordance with IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60320-1, relating to true breaking CBC functionality. Certification to IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60320-1 assures powerCON XX as components for cord sets according to IEC 60799 and UL817 (when used in combination with Neutrik’s NAC3MPXXA and NAC3MPXXB receptacles), as well as for other equipment according to IEC 62368-1.
