U-Lock Technology: Locking Receptacles

Lincoln, NE, April 20, 2016 - Geist recently announced that it has launched brand new patented U-lock receptacles. Available as C19 and C13, they not only offer total peace of mind that server and other rack device cables will remain firmly locked in place, but at a glance also make it extremely easy to identify associated circuits, due to a range of differentiating color options. Users simply plug the cord into the receptacle to lock it in place, and then gently depress the unique bezel design to release.

Geist U-Locks are now offered as standard on the Upgradeable rack PDU range that features: fault-tolerant daisy chaining, 1% billing grade accuracy power monitoring – independently tested in the field, and hot-swappable intelligence, allowing PDUs to be upgraded to the latest technology while there is absolutely no interruption to uptime.

Said Geist EVP Brad Wilson, “We‘re excited to have developed and patented this unique style of locking receptacle. The U-Lock offers total security that cables will never be accidently dislodged, and their bright colors allow easy circuit identification.

“We previewed the U-Lock at AFCOM in March and they were very well received. Our aim to ensure that data Center managers will have two less things to worry about in their facility when using our PDUs.”
