Neutrik’s NAC3FC-HC PowerCon 32 Amp cable connector.Lakewood, NJ (May 23, 2008)–Neutrik has introduced its 32 Amp PowerCon, for the current handling and power transfer required for high-power broadcast distribution systems.
The 32 Amp PowerCon is a locking, 3-conductor AC connector system with contacts for line, neutral and pre-mating ground. Targeted for high-power distribution systems and supplies for professional audio and lighting broadcast equipment, it replaces appliance couplers wherever a solution, in combination with a locking device, is required in order to guarantee a safe power connection. The system consists of two connectors–a chassis receptacle (NAC3MP-HC) and an inline cable connector with locking mechanism (NAC3FC-HC).
PowerCon can be used as a power supply interface for industrial applications and provides a secure locking system. The connectors fulfill all current UL safety standards and is UL recognized. The PowerCon is a connector without breaking capacity, and should not be connected or disconnected under load or live situations.
“Our new 32 Amp PowerCon is an extremely robust and reliable system for the demanding power transfer and load needed for high-power broadcast distribution,” says Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. “It’s a fast and easy locking system and excellent cable retention make it the must-use product for both fixed and mobile productions.”
