A new V-Lock system has been developed by Schurter that is a simple solution to prevent unintentional unplugging of devices. Various different connectors, Power Entry Modules and several country-specific power cables are available with this option of product.

The system can be used for 10 A and 16 A power inlets and connectors according to the IEC 60320 standard.

It works by a pin in socket design, interlocking with a notch in the plug and thus prevents unintentional pullout of the power cable.

The advantages of this system are that there is no need for a specific socket system or retaining device that has to be adapted and built-in.

Locking is released by pressing on the releasing lever. The lever is easily detected by its bright yellow colour and thus distinguishes the system from existing power cable connections.

Typical applications are in medical appliances, analysis and laboratory instruments, Telecom and IT- devices, power distribution or radio and TV-studios set-ups.

Technical Features include:

• IEC appliance couplers 10 A und 16 A

• Extraction force min. 200 N

• No additional assembly parts or costs
