MEGA Electronics Inc. (New Brunswick, N.J.) introduces the IEC C13 Lock Rewireable—the world’s first locking rewireable C13 IEC connector.

Designed to guard against accidental disconnection of computers, PDU servers and most network devices, the IEC Lock features additional flexibility and ease of use, as well as LSZH (low smoke zero halogen) compatibility.

The high-visibility locking mechanism is combined with a simple release mechanism that allows for disconnection from all sides. Ideal as a retrofit solution, it requires no other equipment or special inlets to secure it: simply plug it into an appliance as you would a standard IEC lead. The red cage release mechanism also marks the connector out from standard IEC leads to allow maintenance and other data center staff to identify critical power sources.

Its slim design means it can easily be implemented in areas where access is limited and ease of removal is of paramount importance. The LSZH attribute is crucial for critical applications in military, broadcast, transportation and data centers.
