Schurter has expanded its EC12 series with a version for snap-in mounting. The new variant is created to save panel space otherwise taken by a mounting flange. It also delivers quick and easy, well-secured installation.
The compact series has the same integrated features as the flange mount version: IEC C20 appliance inlet, high-performance single-stage filter and power switch – with or without illumination. Alternatively, it offers snap arms developed to ensure a tight fit as they mount to the panel simultaneously. This provides a high-quality electrical contact to the panel, which optimises the filtering and shielding effect.
The EC12 filter series is offered as a standard or medical M5/M80 version and is employed in devices particularly sensitive to interference. This incorporates IT or telecom systems according to IEC 92368-1 and medical equipment according to IEC 60601-1. Filter versions with increased surge withstand voltage capability are also offered. These filter options deliver safety class X1 interference suppression capacitors for surge voltages of 4kV between L and N, and Y1 for surge voltages of 8 kV. The series is also compatible with V-Lock cord sets. The series is certified for currents up to 16A/250VAC according to IEC and 20 A according to UL/CSA at 125/250VAC and carries ENEC, CQC and cURus approvals.
