HAWTHORNE, N.Y. - - Oct. 4, 2010 - - BTX Technologies, a global value -added distributor and manufacturer of interface and integration products, today announced that the company is now carrying locking IEC power cords to increase reliability in critical applications.


Designed to eliminate accidental plug fall -out, the UL -listed power cords have a patented locking IEC connector on one end and a standard Edison plug on the other. The locking IEC connector features an internal mechanism that grabs the ground pin on the equipment and prevents the plug from coming out. To remove the cord easily without damaging the plug or equipment, integrators just pull the red tab, and the plug is ready for release.

The locking IEC power cords are ideal for rental and staging, high traffic areas, mobile applications in which vibration is an issue, or where critical equipment is used, such as in touring racks, fly -packs, and broadcast trucks.

BTX offers the 18 -AWG locking IEC power cords in lengths from one to six feet.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
