Ingress protection when connected

Schurter has updated the design of its series DG11 and DG12 power entry modules with mains filter. The company states the update builds on the success of the 6080 appliance inlet, which features a first-of-its-kind ingress protection solution between the connector and mating V-Lock power cord.


The blue colored latch of the V-Lock power cord and blue inlay of the appliance inlet indicate the two have been equipped to provide an IP54 rating under load. The unit is rated IP67 between the power entry module and panel.


The modules are designed to combine up to five functions in a single component including: C14 or C18 appliance inlet; circuit breaker that provides overcurrent protection and/or a recessed 2-pole on/off switch; and a mains filter (DG12). The circuit breaker switch is available lighted or unlighted with a selection of colors and on/off printing/embossing. Rated up to 10A at 250VAC according to IEC and 15A at 250VAC according to UL/CSA.
