What are powerCON connectors and what are they used for?

The powerCON is a lockable equipment AC connector. It’s used in the audio business for the power lines of lighting applications, amplifiers, etc. It can be used as power supply for industrial applications with the advantage of its locking system in comparison to standard non locking MAINS* connectors. The connectors fulfill all current safety standards such as SEV, UL, CSA and VDE and use a colored power inlet-outlet coding to prevent a short circuit. To transmit 20A @ 250V it has a thicker silver plating (20µ) and enlarged isolation between the Faston contacts.

* Not to be used in the wall of a building structure as a mains power connector.
