Locking power connectors fully comply with 60320-1 standard

24-02-2023 | Lane Electronics | Industrial

Lane Electronics now supplies the latest powerCON connectors from Neutrik. Expanding the connector blue and grey portfolio, the two new variants, NAC3FXXA and NAC3FXXB cable connectors, fulfil relevant device standards, including IEC62368-1, IEC60799 or UL817, and safety regulations which demand power (mains supply) connectors in accordance with IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60320-1.

Manufactured to the company's exceptional quality standards, the incredibly robust and reliable connectors sit alongside the established 16A powerCON blue (power in) and grey (power out) connectors and the larger 32A locking power connectors. These series offer different keying to evade mismating between power-in and power-out. They are obtainable in TOP (Total Outdoor Protection) IP65 waterproof versions, making them suited to power connection, power distribution, hybrid power systems, electric motor management and medical equipment.

The NAX3FXXA-W-* and NAC3FXXB-W-* are fully mating backwards-compatible with all existing NEUTRIK blue and grey ("non-NAC3MPXX* series") receptacles already available.

Nick Wheeler, sales director of Lane Electronics, says: "Neutrik is the only supplier of fully 60320-1 compliant indoor and outdoor power connectors. The powerCON connector range has evolved from domestic appliances and now offers users quick-connect power connection with a latching device for secure supply of power. The connector is finger-proof and waterproof and will find many applications in power, industrial and medical systems."
