Cord retaining system for IEC C8 appliance inlets

Schurter : 05 February, 2014  (New Product)
Schurter has expanded its range of cord retaining systems to include a new clip retaining device for IEC C8 inlets and mating cord sets.
Cord retaining system for IEC C8 appliance inlets
For some time now, V-Lock, wire-bail and clamp systems have proven successful in preventing the accidental disconnection of power cords from inlets, as required by to IEC 60320. However, these systems are, so far, only available for C14 and C20 appliance inlets. Schurter has now developed a cord retention system, with specially adapted retaining clips for C8 type inlets. The clips fit Schurter series 2576 flange mount and 2578 snap in mount inlets.
 
The IEC C8 inlet can save up to 34% of space compared to the C14 inlet with a wire-bail system and therefore provides the potential for further equipment miniaturisation, depending on power requirements. In addition, the new cord retaining system is more efficient in assembly and in terms of fixation of the cord set. The retaining clip is easily installed, requiring only one screw to fasten it to the panel. For the flange mount inlet, series 2576, the retainer is attached with the same screw as used to secure the inlet flange and thus needs no additional material. The system is available either as a kit together with the C7 power supply cord or separately for retrofitting. 
 
The retaining clip is designed and tested with Schurter C8 inlets and mating cord sets to ensure a retaining force of up to 200 N. The corresponding C7 power supply cords according to IEC 60320 are available in lengths of 2 or 4m and can be fitted with European or American plugs as required.
