SPDS (Signal and Power Delivery Systems) introduces new line of ultra low profile USA power cord plugs, an ideal solution for equipment installations where space is limited.

Campbell, CA November 20, 2008 – Computer, medical, video and industrial equipment installers performing custom equipment installations that require near zero–clearance between power cord, equipment and or a physical structure has an optimum solution from Signal and Power Delivery Systems (SPDS). The Ultra Low Profile power cord plug product line manufactured by SPDS is ideal for installing equipment on equipment racks and in tight spaces, such as data centers, industrial, medical applications, and custom home entertainment centers.

Today, many high-end homes are designed with built-in entertainment centers or theaters that include wall mounted LCD or plasma TVs. Using standard straight-in plugs often require several inches of space between equipment and wall, plus you also need to rout the power cord wire out of the way. Homeowners, as well as anyone wanting to place anything close to a wall outlet finally has a simple solution with SPDS ultra low profile power cord plugs.

SPDS has introduced both three and two prong USA plugs with ultra thin thicknesses. “There are so many situations where data center and entertainment system installers must deal with inadequate space between the power outlet and the device they are installing. Our new line of fully UL approved, NEMA 5–15P or NEMA 1–15P standard series plugs provide the thinnest solution out there”, says Ivo Landre, President of Signal and Power Delivery Systems.

This right angle plug also has a clever offset shape to ensure neighboring outlets are not blocked by the plug’s strain relief or cord coming out of the plug. Straight plugs require at least 2.5 inches clearance between the wall and device and normal right angle plugs are anywhere between 0.84 and 1.2 inches thick. This new design roughly cuts that in half. “There is no other power cord plug designed for America that is thinner”, adds Mr. Landre.

Professional equipment installers pride themselves on clean, easy to manage equipment installations. The polarized and non-polarized two prong versions offer these benefits for the professional installers:

  1. Economy of Space – saves space between wall and equipment, furniture, equipment racks or other fixed objects.
  2. Professional Appearance – final installation is cleaner and more organized.
  3. Lays Flat – get rid of the loop of cord that is typical with standard orientation power cord plugs.
  4. Ease of Maintenance – combining right, left and 45 degree angle plugs and custom lengths allows easy routing of power cord wires making installations easier to maintain in the long run.

As a summary and available for immediate shipment are the following Ultra Low Profile Power Plugs:

  • YP-12-9, a 3 prong power cord plug built to the NEMA 5-15P standard
  • YP-11R, a 2 prong power cord plug built to the NEMA 1-15P polarized standard
  • YP-11T, a 2 prong power cord plug built to NEMA 1-15P non-polarized standard
