A-Lock Power Cables

A-Lock power cables feature a locking mechanism on the equipment (female) end of the cable. The lock mechanism is universal and will mate with any standard IEC 60320 receptacle (C14 inlet for C13 cable, C16 inlet for C15 cables, and C20 inlet for C19 cables). A-Locks cables are simple to release by squeezing the tabs on the outside of the connector. 


P-Lock Power Cables

P-Lock power cables feature a locking mechanism on the male (PDU) side of the cable. P-Lock power cables are quickly becoming the standard cable used in the data center as the popularity of Raritan, Server Technology, and Geist PDUs (Power Distribution Units) increases. P-Lock power cables only securely lock into place on PDUs that have P-Lock receptacles, found on some Raritan, some Geist, and all Server Technology PDUs.
