15 November 2021

Heilind Electronics, a global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for Qualtek Electronics, is pleased to announce a new product offering: Qualtek’s 739W-X2/55, a 20A NEMA 5-20R tamper-resistant convenience outlet. This solution provides the same reliable tamper-resistant system as similar Qualtek models.

The 739W-X2/55 features a built-in shutter system that prevents foreign objects from touching electrically live components when inserted into the slots. Designed with a quick snap-in mounting configuration, this outlet Source: Heilind ElectronicsSource: Heilind Electronicsworks with panel thicknesses from 0.8 mm to 2.0 mm.

Additionally, the outlet utilizes the same panel cutout as other popular Qualtek 739W series outlets — thus allowing it to drop into place for existing applications. Insulation displacement connectors (IDC) eliminate the need for special tools and are designed for use with 12 AWG solid copper conductors.

These tamper-resistant convenience outlets are ideal for outlet strips, uninterruptible power supplies, industrial applications, desktop lamps and pop-up power outlets.
