Schurter is announcing that its compact KEA series power entry module, with 1- or 2-pole fuseholder, now mates with V-Lock cord sets. The KEA's new V-Lock compatible feature prevents unintended disconnection of the power from the equipment.
Unlike wire bail or clamp accessories, no additional costly hardware is necessary to install the cord retaining system. The cordset safely latches into a notch in the plastic housing of the KEA. Removing the cordset is easily achieved by depressing the latch. V-Lock power cords are offered in a wide range of cord lengths and country-specific plugs, including NEMA 5-15 standard hospital-grade versions.
The KEA is suitable for use in medical devices, IT and audio equipment used on stage, where the power to the equipment must withstand mechanical stress on the cord. It features C14 inlet, 1- or 2-pole fuseholder for 5×20mm fuses, 4.8×0.8mm quick-connect or PCB terminals, and screw-on or snap-in mounting. Optional voltage selector allows for use in international markets. Current rating is 10A at 250V AC. Approvals include UL, CSA, VDE and CCC.
