Tamper protection for service sockets when measuring the energy consumption
PlugSafe enables the proper protection of service sockets also on existing devices
The use of MID-compliant meters, however, is prescribed by law for determining the electricity consumption for commercial billing purposes, for example for insurances.
In addition to the MID-compliance* in some EU countries, however, further requirements with regard to the energy consumers concerned apply, like for example in Germany. Here, the Weights and Measures Act (MessEG) additionally requires the guarantee that for devices provided with a service socket neither further electricity consumers are connected during the period of use nor that they can be replaced by other consumers.
The smart solution to this task comes in the shape of Trotec's innovative PlugSafe base plate.
This base plate protected as a utility model for built-in sockets with flange mounting can be easily mounted to existing devices below the service socket available by authorized expert staff and then enables their proper protection by applying a seal to the two mounting angles facing the PlugSafe base plate.
Tamper-proof socket protection – easy with PlugSafe

PlugSafe ensures tamper protection from two aspects: The first point is that the plugged-in electricity consumer cannot be disconnected or replaced, and furthermore it is ensured that no consumer can be plugged into a protected socket.
For the connector/socket protection using PlugSafe, consecutively numbered pull-up seals are available as accessories. L 500 mm, 100 items in the package, art. no. 6.100.002.090.
