SCHURTER is introducing its high temperature inlet and cord connectors series to extend its range of IEC high-temperature power inlets and outlets according to IEC/UL 60320. The high-temperature appliance inlets and cord connectors are designed according to IEC for 16A at 250V AC, and according to UL / CSA for 20A at 250V AC.
Pin temperature may reach a maximum of 155degC. Furthermore, the appliance inlets and cord connectors meet the requirements of IEC 60335-1 for household appliances, which covers enhanced requirements of glow wire tests for unattended household appliances according to IEC 60695-2-12 and -13. They have approvals from ENEC, UL/ CSA and CCC.
The high-temperature appliance inlet, series 1681, offers types for snap-in or screw-on mounting. The inlet can be specified with terminals for solder, quick-connect or screw connections. The cord connector comes in a straight - series 1658 - and an angled - series 1659 - design. Cables with a conductor cross-section of up to 2.5mm2 or 10 AWG can be used.
The IEC high-temperature appliance inlet and the cord connectors are RoHS and CHINA-ROHS compliant. They are used in equipment that operates in elevated ambient temperatures and/or with high currents, such as datacom equipment, where increased power and decreased size are trending, as well as portable industrial equipment such as heating systems.
Detailed specifications for the high temperature inlet and cord connectors series are available in the data sheets, available at www.schurter.com.
