eConnect® Locking Outlets Receive Patent

February 23, 2017

Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) intelligent eConnect® Power Distribution Units (PDUs) have been awarded a third utility patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, recognizing its unique locking outlet design.eConnect PDU Locking Outlet

Click Secure Locking Outlets are available on all eConnect PDUs with IEC outlets. The patent covers the locking design and housing on each outlet. A squeeze-and-release tab allows a plug to be securely inserted and fastened to a PDU without the need for proprietary power cords, which safeguards power and eliminates the cost of additional accessories.

“CPI’s eConnect PDUs with locking outlets protect data centers from facing critical downtime due to inadvertent unplugging of IT equipment. Ability to use the locking mechanism with standard power cords can save organizations anywhere from $50 - $200 per cabinet deployment,” states Ashish Moondra, CPI Senior Product Manager of Power, Electronics & Software.

eConnect PDUs provide the ultimate solution for rack-level power monitoring, distribution and control in evolving data centers. Available in more than 330 standard configurations from five progressive product models, eConnect PDUs can be preinstalled in CPI Cabinets and Racks at no additional costs, saving valuable time and money.
