Tamper Resistant Power Outlet
Qualtek, a leading manufacturer of AC receptacles, has introduced part numbers 738W-X2/35 and 738W-X2/35-WH1. Available in black (738W-X2/35) and white (738W-X2/35-WH1) colors, both are 15A NEMA 5-15R tamper resistant convenience outlets. Similar to Qualtek’s popular 739W-X2/45, the tamper resistant system features a built-in shutter system which prevents foreign objects from touching electrically live components when they’re inserted into the slots, but plugs can be inserted and removed just as with standard electrical outlets.
This outlet has been designed with a quick snap-in mounting configuration, and will work with panel thicknesses from 0.8mm to 2.0mm. 738W-X2/35 series utilizes the same panel cutout as our 739W-X2/03 and 739W-X2/45 NEMA 5-15R outlet, so for existing applications this outlet can drop into place. 738W-X2/35 series 0.187” solder terminals provide an alternative method of wiring compared to the insulation displacement terminals found on the 739W-X2/45. The current capacity of this outlet is up to 15A at 125VAC, and is rated under the Component Recognition Program of Underwrites Laboratories, File No. E139605.
Qualtek part numbers 738W-X2/35 and 738W-X2/35-WH1 applications include outlet strips, Uninterruptable power supplies (UPS), and industrial applications where an AC power outlet is needed.
