Cord retaining system addresses IEC C8 appliance inlets
For some time now, V-Lock, wire-bail and clamp systems have proven successful solutions in preventing the accidental disconnection of power cords from inlets according to IEC 60320. However, these systems are, so far, only available for C14 and C20 appliance inlets. The newly developed cord retention system features specially adapted retaining clips for C8 type inlets. The clips fit the company’s series 2576 flange mount and 2578 snap in mount inlets.
The IEC C8 inlet can save up to 34 percent of space compared to the C14 inlet with wire-bail system and therefore provides the potential for further equipment miniaturization, depending on the power requirements of the application. In addition, the new cord retaining system is more efficient in assembly and in terms of fixation of the cord set, with a retaining force up to 200N.
