SCHURTER IEC C14 Connector series 6080 with mating C13 V-Lock power cords protects against dust and water ingress. The power entry combination provides an IP54 rating when power is connected during equipment operation, as well as an IP67 rating between the connector and the appliance. Ingress protection of particles and liquids is of growing importance, especially in the highly regulated medical field, where locking power cords are also often used to ensure continuous operation of the equipment. Product’s blue colored latch and blue inlay of the appliance inlet indicate that the two have been equipped with unique sealing mechanisms. The mating of the pair makes it possible to achieve a higher Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP54 under load and IP67 against the appliance.
