L-com Introduces Coiled, Hospital-Grade Power Cords

New Cables Prevent Accidental Disconnections in Busy Workplaces

L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand and a supplier of wired and wireless connectivity products, has just introduced a new line of coiled, hospital-grade power cords. They are designed to eliminate accidental disconnections and allow movement for critical equipment used in healthcare facilities, industrial settings, the food and beverage industry, PCs and servers, and more.

The rugged design of these products starts with the plugs. All models have heavy-duty HGN5-15 plugs on one end and either a C13 receptacle or no connector on the other end. Those versions with one open end allow you to attach any suitable connector. The NEMA 5-15 plugs are beefy, one of the most durable on the market, and can withstand abuse. They have a solid ground pin that reduces accidental disconnects caused by bumping or pulling.

Choose a plug with or without an LED light that constantly indicates whether it is properly plugged in and receiving power. This feature is helpful for at-a-glance monitoring of critical equipment. Right-angle plugs are also an option and are especially handy when the equipment being powered is located close to the outlet.

The most useful feature of L-com’s new coiled stretch cable is the coil itself. Such a design allows you to move devices more easily and helps prevent the sudden disconnections that sometimes occur with non-coiled power cords. This new compressed coil cable also takes up less floor space, as it compresses to shorter lengths, eliminating the slack found with non-coiled cables. Choose between a 1-foot cord that stretches out to about 8 feet, or a 2-foot cord that extends to about 15 feet.

To ensure the coils don’t stretch out and lose their elasticity over time, these new models are made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). TPE holds coils better than PVC, ensuring elasticity. The jacket is rated SJT, suitable for indoor use.

L-com offers a dozen different configurations of the new power cords. These include HGN5-15 plugs to C13 straight connectors, to C13 right-angle connectors, or to open ends. Each configuration comes in one-foot or two-foot compressed lengths, and with or without an LED on the plug.

“Our new coiled power cables are perfect for critical equipment that must stay plugged in even when it is being moved,” said Product Line Manager Dustin Guttadauro. “They serve well in busy, fast-moving work environments such as hospitals, manufacturing and restaurants.”

L-com’s new coiled, hospital-grade power cords are in stock now and available for immediate shipment.
