Neutrik Releases Safety Notice for TRUE1 Connectors

by Michael Eddy
Neutrik has put out a safety notice for its powerCON TRUE1 connectors.
Safety Notice powerCON TRUE1
Please regularly check the condition of your powerCON TRUE1 connector system (cable connector
& chassis) for clear signs of wear and tear.
Through improper use and the excessive use of force, the encoding lugs and guide slots in the
connector system can become so severely worn or damaged that it is possible to insert the cable
connector the wrong way. However, when inserted the wrong way, the cable connector should not
twist-lock into place.
A cable connector inserted the wrong way could, in some circumstances, lead to contact between
live wires and the grounding contact in the plug socket.
To determine that the cable connector is inserted correctly, follow the use instructions and listen for
the “click” when performing the twist-lock. Immediately unplug any connector that does not twist-
lock correctly in place.
