Safe power for medical devices

Paul Boughton

SCHURTER is offering various multi-functional connectors according to IEC 60601-1-11 with Protection Class II which are well suited for medical devices.

These products meet the typical requirements such as durability, reliability, safety, hygiene and ease of operation and maximum functional integration.

Special is the V-Lock cord retaining solution, a simple, attractive and alternative system to using brackets.

With the V-Lock solution, the power socket is equipped with a notch that interlocks with a special latch on the connector on the power cord. The system prevents the cord from being pulled out of the socket unintentionally. The advantage of this solution is that no cord-retaining system specific to a unit's power socket or retaining bracket must be adapted and attached.
