Neutrik's powerCON TRUE1 connector is taking over the entertainment lighting and audio industry. Most new products use the power connector now because of its capacity to make or break under load. But Neutrik recently sent out a safety notice asking you to check your cable connectors and 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...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."
