New Lev-Lok USB Receptacles available in a variety of configurations to address current and future USB charging needs

MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton announced today the launch of its Lev-Lok USB Receptacle, the latest addition to the Lev-Lok modular wiring device portfolio. This extensive new offering of USB Receptacles includes both Type A/A and Type A/C USB port options, 15 Amp and 20 Amp configurations, Commercial Specification Grade and Heavy-Duty Hospital Grade devices, as well as a variety of colors.

"With Type-C USBs emerging as the latest standard for charging and transferring data and being used in the latest laptops, phones, and tablets, we saw an opportunity to expand the Lev-Lok portfolio and address both current and future market needs," said Tony Pulsonetti, director of product management, Leviton Commercial & Industrial. "Designed to be the most powerful in the industry, the Lev-Lok USB Receptacles respond to evolving needs of consumers."

The Type A/A USB Ports deliver a combined total of 3.6A charging current and 18+ watts of power, while the Type A/C USB Ports deliver a combined total of 5.1A charging current and 25+ watts of power, allowing users to charge their devices faster. Both USBs are situated alongside two tamper-resistant receptacles.

The Lev-Lok modular wiring device portfolio consists of a comprehensive selection of receptacles, GFCIs, switches, and occupancy sensors. Lev-Lok employs a simple twist and lock wiring module to provide a safe and secure connection. The simplicity of the modular system lowers the risk of incorrect installation on jobs. Users save time and money as the pre-wired module allows for three times faster installation than traditional wiring.

Whether updating to the latest technology or meeting new codes and requirements, Lev-Lok allows for five times faster swap outs than traditional wiring. The robust construction and performance of Lev-Lok makes it the most cost-effective and reliable solution for high volume projects in hospitals, hotels, airports, schools, and other commercial buildings.
