Mencom introduces new lock designs to secure MIN series connections
December 5, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Dec. 5, 2016 – Mencom says its MIN series locks are designed to secure the connection between two straight MIN plugs or between a straight MIN plug and a mating receptacle to prevent the unexpected interruptions.
The padlock hole promises to ensure the extra layered protection by allowing only authorized users to have an access to the connection. Once the padlock is removed, the locks can be opened by inserting a small flat-blade screwdriver into the slot. The MIN locks for Plug-to-Receptacle connection is available in both MIN size I (7/8 in.) and PMIN (1 3/8 in.) series. The plug-to-plug connection is currently available only in PMIN (1 3/8 in.) series. Mencom also offers the protective lockout for MIN size I (7/8 in.) plugs.
