Lockable Power Cord IL13 with New Swiss Safety Mains Plug

The SCHAFFNER Group has adapted the power cord family IL13 according to the new requirements of Swiss safety standard.

The Swiss version of IL13 series with the patented IEC Lock, which clicks into the IEC inlet thanks to a user-friendly locking knob and can be just as easily unlocked again by pressing the knob, has been changed over to the new partly insulated mains plugs in compliance with the latest edition of safety standard SEV1011. So the protection against electrical shock during plug in and pull out with outlets type 12 (without protective shroud) has been increased.

The use of IL13 power cords improves the reliability of electronic systems that are exposed to vibration, like e.g. with mobile applications. IL13 power cords can be used for all devices, which are dependent on a reliable mains connection, as for instance in IT, medical, laboratory or communications areas.

The power cord with the patented IEC Lock needs no modification with existing IEC plugs. It can be used with every Schaffner IEC inlet filter or IEC inlet type C14 up to 10A in accordance with standard EN60320.

The power cord is supplied by default in black with a length of 2m. The red mark on the locking knob clearly distinguishes IL13 from conventional power cables.

Besides the new Swiss mains plug type 12 the power cord family can be supplied with various mains plugs for international use. Of course IL13 does conform to the requirements of RoHS and REACH and is available ex-stock all over the world through Schaffner's global distribution and sales network.
