SCHURTER Series 4783 Utilizes V-Lock Cord Retaining System

July 29, 2021

SCHURTER’s series 4783 is the first rewireable cord connector to combine a detachable IEC C13 connector with the V-Lock cord retaining system. The latching mechanism is designed to prevent the power cord from being unintentionally disconnected from the equipment.

With the V-Lock system for IEC appliance plugs and sockets, SCHURTER offers an attractive, reliable alternative. In the case of V-Lock, the socket with a plug clicks into the opening in the device plug provided for this purpose and thus prevents unintentional disconnection of the mains cable. The advantage of this system is that there is no need to adapt and assemble cable plug-specific bracket systems or retaining brackets.

The locking mechanism is released again by pressing the release lever. Thanks to its luminous bright yellow colour, it is easily recognisable and distinguishes this system from conventional mains connections. The pull-out force is at least 200 N. Various appliance plugs, combi-elements and numerous country-specific power cables are available with this system. The V-Lock cord retention system can be integrated for mains connections according to IEC 60320 for 10 A and 16 A.

Rewireable cord connectors provide cost savings to customers in instances where small builds or varying cable lengths and country specific plugs are needed. Approved for the European, Chinese and North American markets, the 4783 is certified according to the new UL 60320 standard. No halogens in the cable guard or any other plastic components are used.

Applications include medical equipment, data centers, telecommunications equipment, pro-audio, and food processing equipment.

  • highest possible security and reliability against unintentional disconnection of the power cord
  • no additional assembly effort
  • no further components required
  • attractive design
  • simple and self-explanatory operation
  • available for IEC device plug connections 10 A and 16 A
  • protection classes I and II
