Buena Park, CA – April 2013… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and audio/video professional, is pleased to announce the introduction of the PWL-400 Series Power Extension Cords. Equipped with IEC C14 to IEC C13 connectors, the PWL-400 is the ideal accessory for daisy-chaining multiple units off a single power receptacle or for extending the reach of a power cord. The new Hosa PWL-400 is the perfect complement to lighting effects, guitar amplifiers, audio interfaces, wireless audio receivers, and similar equipment.
Many types of equipment—such as lighting effects units used by DJ’s and Houses of Worship—are outfitted with both IEC In and Out jacks for the purpose of daisy-chaining these devices off a single power outlet. Long length cables on stage frequently create an unsightly mess, but the PWL-400 extension cord eliminates this situation. This cable is designed to connect an electrical device equipped with a C13 outlet to one with a C14 inlet. With extension cord lengths as short as 1.5 feet, a stack of lighting effects, for example, can be daisy-chained together, with all cables safely out of view.
Most devices commonly used in our industry—from lighting to audio to data—require an IEC C13 power connector. When the cable supplied by the equipment manufacturer is simply too short to reach the wall outlet, the new Hosa PWL-400 extension cord provides the valuable extra length necessary to reach it—without having to sacrifice the equipment’s preferred placement. A guitarist, for example, may find the ideal placement for his amplifier to be short of reaching the wall receptacle. By connecting the Hosa PWL-400 into the IEC connector on the back of the amplifier, the power cord supplied with the amplifier can now be connected into the PWL-400 and from there, into the wall.
Hosa’s new PWL-400 Series Power Extension Cords utilize 14 AWG (American Wire Gauge) Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for increased current flow—ensuring optimum performance for the connected equipment. Additionally, these power extension cords incorporate a black PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) jacket for durability and low on-stage visibility.
Jose Gonzalez, Hosa Technology’s Product Manager, commented on the new PWL-400 Power Extension Cord. “The new PWL-400 is one of those items no DJ, electronic musician, audio, or lighting professional should be without. With the cord’s ability to be used both for daisy-chaining multiple devices together or for extending the reach of an individual unit, the new PWL-400 Power Extension Cords are ideal for a wide range of professional stage applications. For those professionals working in the music, sound, and lighting segments of our industry, the PWL-400 is a ‘must have’ accessory item.”
