Rewireable IEC Cord Connector for Custom Cabling Offers V-Lock Cord Retention

Santa Rosa, California, April 7, 2020 – The new 4783 rewireable cord connector from SCHURTER is the first of its kind to combine a detachable IEC C13 cord connector with the proven V-Lock cord retention system, effectively designed to prevent the power cord from being pulled out of the inlet unintentionally.

Available in black, white and grey for differentiating systems, i.e. data center distribution, the detachable cord connectors are particularly suited for small series builds, giving ease to choosing cable length and country-specific plugs, that would otherwise require placing large order minimums, or considerable expense.

A cable guard with a diameter of 8.5 mm or 10 mm is pre-assembled at the factory. The screw terminals accept cables with cross-sections between a minimum of 3 x 0.75 mm²/18 AWG (0.82 mm²) and a maximum of 3 x 1.5 mm²/14 AWG (2.08mm²).

The 4783 is added to an already wide range of SCHURTER rewireable cord connectors. It is safety agency approved for the European, Chinese and North American markets. It is also already certified according to the new UL 60320 standard. No halogens in the cable guard or any other plastic components are used. Applications include medical-, data-, telecommunications- or information-technologies.

Pricing starts at $4.50 each in 100 pieces quantities. Link to datasheet 4783. Further details with regard to the cord retaining locking system can be found here. A comprehensive look at SCHURTER’s Portfolio of rewireable connectors is also available.
