Softwiring GPOs (General Purpose Outlets)

The SW and NW series represent the latest generation of socket outlet designed by CMS Electracom.  Softwiring couplers complying to the AS/NZS61535.1 connector standard are integrated into the moulding. They comply with IP4X and hence there is no requirement to use safety end caps or tool only removable connectors. The SW & NWseries offers significant installation benefits as no tools are required for thin or thick panel mounting. This speed of installation offers excellent labour savings. The SW & NW series feature a 10amp double pole, auto switched outlet. The SW & NW series is covered by the Energy Safe Certificate.

What is Softwiring?

Otherwise known as modular wiring, Softwiring is a plug-and-play system which supersedes the labour intensive method of hardwiring by utilising an interconnecting modular backbone which enables a versatile and tool-less installation between the ceiling, workstation and floor.  Softwiring has transformed the building industry by adding flexibility and modularity whilst reducing installation time, waste of material and overall cost.  Softwiring (or modular wiring) enables the easy re-use of wiring when re-configuring workstation power distribution, without the waste associated with hard wiring. This not only saves time and increases productivity during on-site installation, it also gives the designer maximum flexibility for future expansion.

Advantages of Softwiring

  • Tool-less connections Enable quicker installation times, saving on labour and material costs
  • Safer installation Pre-terminated and pre-tested one-way plug-and-play connections eliminates electrical faults
  • Sustainable Re-usable leads and outlets are not only more versatile to install but also minimises waste on projects
  • Future-proof installation Simple to add connections allow for expansion or reconfiguration at minimal cost
