Professional power cords: quality, reliability, safety and compliance – the NEUTRIK assurance


NEUTRIK launching new ‘essential’ and ‘ultimate’ series, fully LVD / IEC 60799 compliant, professional power cords at ISE.

The Neutrik Group, Schaan, Liechtenstein; 30 January – 2 February 2024. Under the latest legally binding international safety regulations, power connection and interconnection cord sets, for use with and within the full range of professional AV and IT devices and applications, require to be certified to the EN/IEC 60799 standard.

Within European Economic Community (EEC) countries, the European Economic Area Low Voltage Directive (LVD) stipulates that cable sets that do not comply with this standard are ineligible for CE marking and cannot be used within or imported into EEC countries. For many manufacturers and end users, the process of certifying every type of power cord in their inventory is time, resource and cost prohibitive. NEUTRIK’s new preassembled, fully certified cord sets series provide a ready-made solution across a range of price points and performance requirements, with all the quality and reliability assurance that comes with the NEUTRIK brand.

All cord set series feature designs that prioritize unsurpassed standards of quality, reliability, and safety, utilizing NEUTRIK’s market leading, fully IEC 60320-1 certified cable connectors, and are produced in Europe at the company’s state-of-the-art, cost-efficient dedicated production site. All cable sets are rigorously safety tested and certified to meet and exceed the requirements of current worldwide regulated standards.

The essential POWER CORDS series provides a range of high quality, high reliability and cost-efficient rewirable cable assemblies. These cord sets feature NEUTRIK powerCON® FXX series blue / grey connectors with circuit breaking capacity (CBC), secure locking mechanism, rugged construction and discrete power-in and power-out colour coding and keying to prevent intermating. These are paired with durable high-quality rubber jacketed cable.
