The CPO's compact PVC housing measures
just 60 by 109 mm and features an ABS plastic cover. The CPO Series employs a
top-mount ground pin, preventing loose metal objects such as conductor strands
from shorting hot and neutral pins together. For varying termination needs, the
CPO Series offers either color-coded CAGE CLAMP Spring Pressure termination or
MCS Pluggable Connectors. Regardless of connector selected both provide clearly
marked input terminals and integrated test ports for troubleshooting.
The CPO Series consists of 26
variants including: Duplex, GFCI, Isolated Ground and Switch models, as well as
PCB-mount outlets. Specialty configurations, such as surge-protected and
European "Schuko" outlets are also available. Depending on CPO
variant selected, ratings range from 120-250V and 15-20A.
