Quail Electronics 3500 Series Compatible with the New UL Standard

For over 25 years, Quail Electronics has prided itself on unmatched quality control across OEM lines and an emphasis on staying current with the newest standards. Recently, UL—the approval body for North American Power Cords—has released new requirements for Universal Wire types. Now, Quail announces that it is compliant with new UL measure 62, requiring designation of North American wire gauge to match European standards.

UL 62 has the biggest impact on Universal Power Cords, specifically Quail's 3500 Series. Universal wire types like on the 3500s are manufactured using materials that conform to both European requirements and American requirements. Because of this, the specifications concerning cross sectional area of the actual copper leads are measured in both metric (mm²) and AWG (American Wire Gauge). UL 62 defines new standards as far as what AWG measurements should match what metric measurements so that collaborating products across international markets is easier for project managers, and more beneficial for consumers.
