New Splash- and Dust-Proof IEC Appliance Inlets
Two new splash-water-proofed IEC appliance inlets are now available from Schurter.
Schurter’s inlet 6100-3 with a sealing kit has a protection degree of IP 54, both into the equipment and to the cord connector, while the 5707 power entry module with line filter offers IP 65 protection into the equipment as a standard feature. With the addition of the company’s optional sealing kit, the coupling to the cable connector is protected to IP 54.
The compact power entry module 5707 contains an appliance inlet C14, fuse holders and either a standard or medical line filter. The component provides seals at the assembly opening, screws, fuse holders and between the connector pins and the connector housing to protect against dust and splashes.
The addition of the optional gasket that provides IP 54 protection between the inlet and the cord connector when it is plugged in makes 5707 suited for medical equipment that must routinely be cleaned and disinfected. This includes equipment such as diagnosis, dialysis and infusion units. It is also ideal for commercial applications, for example in beverage machines.
The C14 inlet type 6100-3 is also available with a sealing kit for a protection degree of IP 54 for both into the device and coupling to the cable connector. This is suited for equipment used in outdoor applications and for vehicle charging units, vehicle diagnostics and ultrasound cleaning or stirring equipment in the laboratories.
