SCHURTER Offers Components Suited for Medical Equipment Exposed to Liquids

Santa Rosa, California, May 07, 2020 – SCHURTER’s high-performance AC connectors, circuit protection, switches and EMC products safely and reliably optimize performance for critically needed COVID-19 medical equipment including ventilators, respirators, diagnostic, therapeutic and medical laboratory equipment.

The compact and versatile DG12 series power entry modules integrate an IEC inlet, EMC filter, and rocker-style circuit breaker with optional IP67 protection, making them suitable for use in environments exposed to splashing water. They are IEC rated up to 10 A at 250 VAC and UL/CSA rated up to 15 A at 125/250 VAC. The power entry modules feature a standard or low leakage mains filter, as well as standard or higher inductive performance options, along with a recessed 2-pole ON/OFF rocker switch circuit breaker with 1- or 2-pole overcurrent protection. The extremely compact design, with its multitude of features, consolidates discrete power components into one space-saving unit.

In addition, the miniature circuit breaker, TA35 series, is offered as a standalone component. The series is available in 1-, 2- or 3-pole options. Finely graduated rated currents are available from 0.05 A to 20 A for 1-pole and 2-pole circuit breakers, and 0.05 A to 12 A for 3-pole circuit breakers. The optional protective cover offers an IP 65 degree of protection.

SCHURTER’s broad range of filtered Power Entry Modules are available with medical low leakage filters. Connectors mate with cord sets using the proven V-Lock cord retention system for unintentional disconnection. Additionally, SCHURTER just released the new 4783, rewireable IEC C13 appliance inlet offered in black, white or grey; ideal for short builds of varying cable lengths and plugs. The broad medical components portfolio also includes robust metal line switches resistant to harsh cleaning processes with seal protection up to IP69K, high performance SMD fuses that withstand pulse and inrush currents, as well as wide temperature variations. Products carry country-specific approvals such as VDE/ENEC, UL/CSA and CCC. SCHURTER’s perfectly safe solutions are cost effective and intended for use in the highest-grade medical equipment.
