Schaffner has adapted the power cord family IL13 according to the new requirements of Swiss safety standard. The Swiss version of the power cord series with the IEC Lock, which clicks into the IEC inlet thanks to a user-friendly locking knob and can be just as easily unlocked again by pressing the knob, has been changed over to the new partly insulated mains plugs in compliance with the latest edition of safety standard SEV1011. So the protection against electrical shock during plug in and pull out with outlets type 12 (without protective shroud) has been increased. The use of the power cords is supposed to improve the reliability of electronic systems that are exposed to vibration, like e.g. with mobile applications. The power cords can be used for all devices, which are dependent on a reliable mains connection, as for instance in IT, medical, laboratory or communications areas. It can be used with every Schaffner IEC inlet filter or IEC inlet type C14 up to 10A in accordance with standard EN60320. The power cord is supplied by default in black with a length of 2m. The red mark on the locking knob clearly distinguishes IL13 from conventional power cables. Besides the new Swiss mains plug type 12 the power cord family can be supplied with various mains plugs for international use. The product does conform to the requirements of RoHS and REACH.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
