IEC appliance outlets with up to four light pipes

Update: April 5, 2023

Schurter’s 6610-5 and 4710-5 IEC appliance outlets, Type F and J, are the optimal solution for data centre PDUs, where status indication and packing density are crucial. Their compact design provides tight mounting in multiples and supplies up to four LEDs for status indication.

The outlet series is created to provide a space and cost savings approach to PDU strip assemblies where an indication is often utilised to signal the equipment technician concerning system status of one kind or another, for instance, power surges and sags. Precisely fitted light guides deliver support for light pipes in one or all corners of the outlet. The operation of every one of the LEDs, mounted on the PCB, is channelled to the enclosure surface to indicate status. The light pipes are ordered as an accessory to be inserted after the outlets have been mounted and wired. Outlets are supplied in black, white, and grey for multiphase distinction.

IDC terminals are particularly efficient, enabling several outlets to be wired quickly and reliably in a single process step. The phase contact (L) is a PCB terminal for connecting maximum power to each outlet. Quick connect or solder terminals are available on request. IDC terminal configuration supports wiring ‘along’ or ‘cross’ to the outlet pin axis. Selection depends on the design of the PDU and the arrangement of the outlets, vertically (along) or horizontally (cross) one behind the other, orienting the wires to the direction of the strip. IDC terminals accept solid insulated wires, sizes 14-10AWG.

The outlet series are rated to IEC and UL 10/15A at 250VAC, Style F, and 16/20A at 250VAC, Style J. The outlets are compatible with the V-Lock cord retention system. Snap-in mounting is designed for panel thicknesses of 1mm to 3mm, 1.5mm and 2mm are standard.
