SCHURTER hospital grade compliant V-Lock power cords are highly resistant to mechanical forces, encompass patient safety in critical medical and dental applications, are easy to handle and attractive in design, require no extra material and are therefore cost effective.
Power cords used in general and critical care patient bed locations must be certified as hospital grade and therefore fulfill a broad range of specifications such as UL 817. Apart from material specifications, the requirements include rigorous tests to check durability and conductivity to ensure that the product operates at peak levels. For the user, these strict demands result in very high quality and reliability, allowing for safe and efficient use in areas where lives are at stake. To distinguish hospital grade power cords and inlets from other devices, they are marked with a green dot and the phrase “hospital grade”.
Especially in the medical area, the connection between plugs and receptacles are prone to mechanical stress through the shifting of equipment and may be unplugged unintentionally. In this context, the SCHURTER hospital grade power cords with V-Lock system offer a proven solution for safe and most reliable power connection that protects against accidental disconnection of power cords. SCHURTER V-Lock power connectors are equipped with a cam that interlocks with a special notch in the inlet on the power cord and therefore need no specific socket system or retaining device that has to be adapted and built in. Removing the cordset is easily achieved by depressing the latch, allowing a simple, user-friendly operation. With its reduced design and transparent material, SCHURTER hospital grade cordsets with V-Lock system offer a simple, attractive and cost-effective alternative to conventional plug-retention systems as there are no extra assembly or additional components required.
