Locking power connector range offers easy to use and reliable devices
Connectors, Switches & EMECH
Cliff Electronics has added a locking connector to their CLIFFCON power connector range. The CLIIFCON-P range is composed of a power input plug and socket, a power output plug and socket and an inline cable extension coupler.
The ergonomically-shaped locking power input and output plugs are colour coded: Blue for power in and grey for power out, and highlight different keyways to stop accidental insertion of the incorrect plug. The chassis mounting sockets are created to fit into industry standard 26mm XLR cut outs, matching the very broad range of standard, and FeedThrough connectors already available from the company.
The connector input/output coupler can be used to increase cable lengths and offers dust caps on both sockets to stop the ingress of dust or contamination when not in use.
The range is rated at 20A RMS at 250VAC and may be used in applications including broadcast, lighting, LED display, auditorium installations, signage and videowall systems and industrial equipment.
John Hall, managing director of Cliff Electronics, comments: “Our CLIFFCON power connector range is very well established provides a variety of different high quality, robust and reliable options. The new CLIFFCON-P provides installers of fixed and temporary installations a simple to use, safe and reliable locking power connector with the option of extending cable runs for use at different locations. The CLIFFCON-P XLR sized sockets match our very wide range of other connector types simplifying panel design.”
