The V-Lock system from SCHURTER prevents unintentional unplugging of power cords on equipment. A variety of power sockets, Power Entry Modules (PEMs) and numerous country-specific power cords can be supplied as part of this system, and now  also in white. Also available are power cords with V-Lock that conform to the “American Hospital Grade”.

V-Lock guarantees a power cord cannot be pulled out of a piece of equipment. With this system, the power socket is equipped with a pin that interlocks with a special notch in the plug on the power cord. The lock is released by pressing a finger on the disengaging lever. V-Lock is easily identified due to its bright yellow color, a feature that makes it easy to identify this scheme from conventional power plug/socket systems. The V-Lock locking system can be integrated into power couplings in compliance with IEC 60320 for 10 A and 16 A rated current. Advantage: no clamping system specific to a unit’s power socket or retaining bracket must be adapted and attached.

V-Lock is especially well suited for medical equipment, laboratory and analysis instruments, telecom and IT equipment, power outlet strips or equipment in TV or radio studios. V-Lock is available with black or white cables, plugs and sockets.

For medical equipment, SCHURTER offers Power Entry Modules with a medical filter and fuse holder with increased shock protection. Power cords are also available that meet American Hospital Grade.

– 10 A and 16 A IEC equipment power couplings
