NEMA Tamper Resistant Convenience Outlets from Qualtek Electronics

November 30, 2021

Qualtek has introduced a new product to its family of tamper resistant convenience outlets.  The 739W-X2/55, a 20A NEMA 5-20R tamper resistant convenience outlet, it provides the same tamper resistant system as our other models.

The 739W-X2/55 features a built-in shutter system which prevents foreign objects from touching electrically live components when inserted into the slots. This outlet has been designed with a quick snap-in mounting configuration and will work with panel thicknesses from 0.8mm to 2.0mm.

The 739W-X2/55 utilizes the same panel cutout as our other popular 739W series outlets, so for existing applications this outlet can drop into place. Insulation displacement connections (IDC) eliminate the need for special tools and are designed to be used with 12AWG solid copper conductors.  The current capacity of this outlet is up to 20A at 125VAC and is rated under the Component Recognition Program of Underwrites Laboratories, File No. E139605.


Applications include:

  • Outlet Strips
  • Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
  • Industrial applications
  • Pop-Up Power Outlets
  • Desktop Lamps
