Press Release

Power Cord with Locking System for IEC Inlets

The Schaffner Group enhances its family of IEC Lock power cords with Japanese PSE approvals for existing IL13 family and introduces the new IL19 family for currents up to 16A.

The power cord families IL with the patented locking system needs no change of existing IEC inlets or IEC inlet filters and locks without additional fixture in every standardized IEC inlet. Just as easily the power cord can be unlocked again by pressing the operating knob.

IL13 can be used for all IEC appliance couplers type C14 or applicable Schaffner IEC inlet filters with type C14 inlet. The new IL19 series fits to all appliance couplers type C20 or to Schaffner IEC inlet filters with type C20 inlet.

The IL series power cords can be utilized in all applications where reliable mains connection is paramount, for instance IT and telecommunications, medical, laboratories, home appliances or hardly accessible mains connections. The locking system can take up tensile forces up to 200N and fulfills the requirements of the safety standards of IEC 60335-1 (domestic appliance) and IEC60601-1 (medical electronic devices) without additional traction relief system. Finally, a fast and easy exchange of the power cord is possible.

For this reason the reliability of electronic system exposed to vibration or traction can be improved. Also mains connections with traction relief can be substituted by IL power cords and the total costs can thus be lower. IL19 range like IL13 is offered with various plug options making it suitable to be used in countries with different mains sockets. The power cord is supplied by default in black. With the red mark on the locking knob IL power cord clearly distinguishes from conventional power cables. An application note delivers details how to change quick and trouble-free to IL power cords.

IL power cord does conform to the requirements of RoHS and REACH and is available ex-stock all over the world through Schaffner global distribution and sales network.
