QSC Amplifiers Now Offer Detachable Power Cords; Meet High-Current Needs
QSC PL380 amplifiers are now available with detachable power cords featuring 32 amp
PowerCon connectors from Neutrik, bringing new flexibility to the system.
Produced up until now with a permanently-attached power cord, the flagship 120V
and 100V models within QSC’s PowerLight 3 Series now have high-current capacity
(32 amps) designed expressly to meet the needs of high-power distribution
systems. The 230V PL380 will be upgraded from the 20A PowerCon to the new 32A
connector at the same time.
PowerCon connectors are three-pole systems with contacts for phase, neutral,
and ground, and are suitable for use with voltages up to 250V. An inherent part
of the PowerCon design, the connector facilitates fast and easy locking,
protecting against unintentional disconnects.
cUL, and JET approved, the new 32 amp PowerCon connectors will maintain all
existing PL380 safety approvals. PL380 plug types remain unchanged, with the
existing NEMA L5-30P plug found on all 120V and 100V PowerLight PL380
amplifiers, and a “Shuko” CEE 7/7 16 amp Continental European plug still in
place on the 230V PL380. All PowerLight PL325 and PL340 amplifiers will retain their
existing 20 amp PowerCon connectors and plug types.
