Neutrik USA (http://www.neutrik.com) — a manufacturer of professional audio, video, data and industrial connectors — has announced the U.S. debut of its powerCon True1 AC power connector at Winter NAMM.
The lockable, extremely robust system of single-phase connectors is among the first of its kind to feature IEC 60320 breaking capacity, designed for 16 A, 250 V. This makes it suitable for concerts and similarly staged productions where the electrical equipment is often confined to a small area, making safety a top priority.
A complete system, including inlet and outlet couplers for easy daisy chaining of equipment, the powerCon True1 also provides for high-density requirements with a duplex chassis connector combining an inlet and outlet coupler. Thanks to its high-breaking capacity, performance crew workers and other production professionals can connect large amounts of electrical equipment without worrying that interruptions to the current will cause a catastrophic electric arc, says Peter Milbery, president of Neutrik USA. “
The new connector is available for self-termination or as a ready-made cord set. The cord set, with over-molded cable connectors, offers protection class IP65 in the mated condition. Neutrik’s highly reliable Twist-Lock locking system prevents inadvertent disconnection. Contact Neutrik USA for pricing options.
