PDUWhips.com announces the availability of locking IEC power cords.

imagesRaleigh, N.C. – PDUWhips.com has added locking IEC power cords to their existing catalogue of power cords, PDU whips, plug adapters, and custom cables. PDUWhips.com, a division of Iron Box Power Distribution, announced the new selection in late September on their blog, as part of an initiative to present a fresh alternative to the traditional power cord and PDU cabling vendors.

Locking power cords are essential for applications that require 24/7 uptime. On average, downtime results in a cost of $7,908 per minute (Source). Using a locking cord to secure the cable into the receptacle avoids accidental disconnects from human error or vibration, along with the hefty cost associated with them. No hardware, special inlets or tools are needed, making locking cords an attractive option for any application. When used in conjunction with cables like IEC jumper cords that eliminate excess cabling, locking cords reduce power consumption, decrease downtime, and installation is faster and more profitable.

The selection of locking power cords on PDUWhips.com includes Auto-Lock™, SecureLock™ (P-Lock), IEC Lock™ & Schaffner (IL), V-Lock, Zonit zLock™ (Z-Lock). PDUWhips.com also builds UL listed custom NEMA to IEC locking cords to fit any configuration. Making these cords available on the PDUWhips.com website allows engineers, contractors, manufacturers, and IT professionals to consolidate their purchasing and find everything they need for a comprehensive, efficient power solution all in one place.

Iron Box is no stranger to the locking power cord market – Iron Box stocks and sells more types of locking power cords than any other company in the world. The addition of locking cords to PDUWhips.com amplifies this trend, and provides a competitive option for electrical contractors, OEMs, and IT professionals.
