To include a new version with flexible wire leads and a version for PCB mounting, Schurter has expanded its filtered IEC inlet family.
The IEC C14 inlet with EMI filter, series 5120, meets the increasing demands of IT, medical and industrial appliances. The existing panel mount version is now available with flexible wire leads in addition to quick connect and solder terminals. A PCB mount version is also available. The new configurations provide easy installation, cost savings and maximum performance in a lightweight and environmentally friendly compact package.
The series combines an IEC C14 or C18 inlet with line filter in various mounting styles and targets low and high current applications. The EMI filter is dimensioned as a 1-stage filter for rated currents up to 15A with a leakage current standard <0.5mA and medical <5μA. The positive electrical contact of the broad metal flange to the chassis ensures optimal filtering and shielding.
Mounting options include screw-on, rivet or snap-in mounting. The snap-in mounting style as well as the screw-on version from rear side with its pre-formed threaded holes reduces labour costs. The PCB mount version is available with optional snap feet to safely fasten the unit on the printed circuit board. The flexible wire leads provides pre-assembly for easy and fast installation.
The 5120 is designed for use in IT, medical and industrial applications. The series is ENEC and cURus approved and complies with IEC/EN standards for office and medical equipment, 60950 and 60601-1 respectively, says the company.More news from Schurter
