CANFORD LACING BAR KIT Additional, for MDU AC mains distribution unit

CANFORD MDU13 AC MAINS POWER DISTRIBUTION UNIT - Twin 7x IEC outlet - Twin 3m fixed lead inlet

This range of twin input, twin seven-way IEC outlet, AC mains power distribution panels has two, 20 amp, unterminated, orange, fixed-lead inlets, each supplying seven outlets, and is housed in a compact 1U rackmount case. The twin input arrangement permits more current to be drawn from the outlets, or for separate supplies to be used within one distribution unit. All versions have on the front panel two illuminated power rocker switches or two un-switched LED power present indicators, plus fuse and bi-colour LED indication of power status for each of the output channels. Inlet and outlets are on the rear panel.

The fuses on the front panel have adjacent bi-colour LEDs. Green illuminated indicates that the circuit is powered correctly. Red illuminated indicates that the fuse has failed.

All outputs are numbered front and rear for easy identification and a designation strip holder with snap-on cover is fitted on the front panel. The paper strips supplied may be inserted before or after installation; 7.5mm of printable height is available. Templates for printing designation strip labels, available as a DWG file for AutoCAD and compatible applications, can be downloaded from the appropriate product page on the Canford website.
Spare designation-strip inserts (not suitable for printers) 45-3082 and spare clear covers 45-3092 are available.

Standard (MDU13, MDU13S)

The front panel has an illuminated switch or un-switched neon indicator, independent outlet fuses with status indicators. The rear panel has two 20 amp, unterminated, orange, fixed-lead inlets and two groups of seven 10 amp IEC outlets. An earth stud is fitted.

All types are available finished with Dawn Grey or Black front panels, with either red or green illuminated switch or 'input power present' LED indicator on the front panel.

Lacing Bars

As IEC cable plugs vary enormously in size and design it is not possible to define a 'universal' connector wire retaining clip. To overcome the challenge of securing all IEC connector types both re-wireable and moulded, a single lacing-bar is fitted as standard. The stainless rods may be fitted in a variety of positions to take account of cable connector size. An additional rod may be ordered separately and fitted, which is particularly suitable where connectors of different heights are inserted or where excess cable must be doubled back. An example would be when 'double ended', fixed length, moulded AC mains cords, such as the IEC-Lock types, are used.

Mating connectors are NOT included and should be ordered separately as required.

Output connectors: Bulgin, stock code 42-153 or Schurter, stock code 42-054.
Moulded mains leads: A large range are offered, see AC Mains Power Leads.

Switch Guard Plates

A switch guard-plate may be fitted at the time of installation or retrospectively to Canford MDUs to avoid units being accidentally switched off (or on). The central cut-out gives finger access and a clear view of the illuminated switch. Note: Different types of MDU require switch guards of different sizes, see information in descriptions.
