IEC Lock connects at prestigious London Experience Centre

Specialist global IT product and services provider Technological Innovations Group (TIG) recently opened two Experience Spaces in Frankfurt and London to showcase its impressive ecosystem of AV, UC, IT and control solutions in a safe and socially-distanced way.

Technical solutions distributor and AV rack build specialist Visualization Ltd was called upon in the early stages of the TIG London Experience Centre project. Scolmore’s IEC Lock+ rewireable connector – the world’s first locking C13 IEC connector – was selected by Visualization for use in the rack build element of this prestigious project.


Visualization’s involvement included preparing the cable infrastructure at the Experience Centre as well as the rack build and installation. The rack was pre-staged offsite at Visualization’s Maidenhead, Berkshire premises. The team then worked onsite to install the cabling infrastructure to power the Experience Centre and once this element of the project was complete, the rack was delivered and installed on site.

The IEC Lock rewireable connectors were used by Visualization for the rack build element of the project, and they were also used with ICT equipment specified by TIG for mains distribution. Key reasons for Visualization’s choice of the IEC Lock+ rewireable connector included the product’s unique locking features and the peace of mind it offers for secure connectivity, particularly during transit, where there can be issues of displacement caused by vibrations. Nick Pidgeon, managing director of Visualization, commented: “When we first tried out the IEC Lock, we were impressed with the qualities and features it offered, and it was a no brainer for us to move over to them. We have been using the C13 rewireable connectors, as well as the versatile angled connectors, for a number of years now and they have become a trusted and standard part of our rack builds.”

Scolmore’s IEC Lock+ Rewireable is designed to guard against accidental disconnection of computers, PDU’s servers and most network devices, and it adds additional flexibility and ease of use, as well as LSZH (low smoke zero halogen) compatibility, to its list of features. The high-visibility locking mechanism is combined with a simple release mechanism which allows for disconnection from all sides. Ideal as a retrofit solution, it is simply plugged into an appliance as you would a standard IEC lead. The red cage release mechanism also marks the connector out from standard IEC leads to allow maintenance and other data centre staff to identify critical power sources. Its slim design means it can easily be implemented in areas where access is limited, and ease of removal is of paramount importance. Its LSZH attribute is crucial for critical applications in military, broadcast, transportation and data centres.
