The powerCON is a lockable equipment AC connector with contacts for line, neutral and pre-mating ground contact. It’s used in the audio business for the power lines of lighting applications, amplifiers, etc. It can be used as power supply for industrial applications with the advantage of its locking system in comparison to standard non locking MAINS* connectors. It replaces appliance couplers wherever a very rugged solution in combination with a locking device is needed in order to guarantee a safe power connection. The connectors fulfill all current safety standards such as SEV, UL, CSA and VDE and use a coloured power inlet-outlet coding to prevent a short circuit. To transmit 20A @ 250V it has a thicker silver plating (20µ) and enlarged isolation between the Faston contacts.
* Not to be used in the wall of a building structure as a mains power connector.
Why are there two different (keyed) versions of the 20 A powerCON?
powerCON 20 A offers power-in (blue) and power-out (grey) versions with different keying to avoid short circuits.
