Improved power entry module with circuit breaker

04-12-2023 | Schurter | Power

Schurter series DG11 and DG12 with and without mains filter provide a first-of-its-kind ingress protection solution for IEC inlets, comprising a sealing gasket between the connector and mating V-Lock power cord. The blue coloured latch of the V-Lock power cord and blue inlay of the appliance inlet indicate that the two have been equipped to supply an IP54 rating under load. The unit is screw-mounted and rated IP67 between the power entry module and the panel.

The compact and versatile power entry modules are created to combine several functions in a single component. These include a C14 or C18 appliance inlet, a recessed circuit breaker with one- or two-pole resettable overcurrent protection and two-pole ON/OFF switch, a mains filter for standard or medical low leakage applications, and a newly integrated IP54 seal protection between inlet and latching power cord. The circuit breaker switch is offered lighted or unlighted in a selection of colours and ON/OFF printing/embossing. Illumination supply voltage is 240V or 120V. They are rated up to 10A at 250VAC according to IEC and 15A at 250VAC according to UL/CSA.

Applications for the series include equipment exposed to liquids, such as medical instruments, portable equipment used outdoors, food service equipment, and equipment/vending used in public areas.
