Rutronik presents V-Lock Locking System from Schurter
Rutronik presents V-Lock Locking System from Schurter.
The V-Lock system by Schurter is a simple solution to prevent an unintentional unplugging. It can be used for 10A and 16A power inlets and connectors according to IEC 60320. Various different connectors, Power Entry Modules and several country-specific power cables are available at distributor Rutronik now with this option.
The V-Lock system works in such a way that there is a pin in the socket, interlocking with a notch in the plug, preventing an unintentional pullout of the power cable. The advantage of this system is that there is no 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. This lever is easily detected by its bright yellow colour, which distinguishes this system from existing power cable connections.
The extraction force is a minimum of 200N. Typical applications are in medical appliances, analysis and laboratory instruments, as well as telecom and IT-devices, power distribution or radio and TV-studios.
