Introduction of (EN) ISO 14119 "Interlocking Devices 
Associated with Guards"

The (EN) ISO 14119 standard applies to interlock system designers (e.g. machine builders, integrators) as well as
the interlock device manufacturers. It is important to note that this applies to the design of new machines. Existing installations are not necessarily affected; however there are some
requirements relating to maintenance, function testing, and replacement of components.

The new standard provides clarification of many existing "grey areas" and also acknowledges the use of contemporary technology in the design of interlocking switches. The downloadable paper below is intended to summarize the changes from the previous edition.

So how will (EN) ISO 14119 affect you?

Hubbell Wiring Devices: New NEMA Configurations for Twist-Lock® Devices for Data Centers

Hubbell just announced the addition of 2 new NEMA configurations to the Twist-Lock® line!
These new NEMA configurations will support electrical connections in data centers that are starting to employ higher power at the cabinet level. Most data centers are fed with 277/480V AC, 3 phase power, which then needs to be stepped down for cabinet PDU's which operate between 100V AC to 240V AC single phase. This is accomplished by stepping down from 277V AC through isolated transformers before it can be used.
By way of 415V AC, 3 phase power, data centers can now realize greater efficiency by reducing the number of power transformers in their facility. This change in power delivery is estimated to increase efficiency by approximately 2%. In addition, cabinets are now able to accept higher voltages such as 240V AC.
With these new NEMA configurations, electrical connectivity can be possible with Twist-Lock® devices.
