Schurter is announcing its IEC appliance outlet with insulation displacement contact (IDC) terminals, the 4710. The new outlet provides increased power ratings over the popular 6610 series for heavier duty PDU applications.
The 4710 is a J-style outlet according to IEC 60320, rated 20A @ 250V AC by UL/CSA and 16A @ 250V AC by ENEC. The lower current version, 6610 series, is a style F outlet, rated 15A @ 250V AC and 10A @ 250V AC, respectively. The 4710 provides IDC terminals for 10 AWG / 6.0mm2 in addition to 12 AWG / 4.0mm2, which is the standard wire size for the 6610. The new wire option allows for larger diameter wire for the 4710's increased power capabilities. The snap-in outlets fit panels with a thickness between 0.8mm and 3mm.
The 4710 and 6610 outlets are qualified for use in applications designed to IEC/EN 60950. Suitable for use in power distribution units, and other equipment where multiple outlets are banked in series, these IDC outlets allow wires to be bussed across the terminals, thereby connecting common terminals all at once and significantly reducing labour costs. The IDC terminals are arranged either along or across the connector pin axis for a horizontal or vertical mounting orientation. Wires are pressed into place with the protective back cover or with a tool. Versions with combination IDC and a quick-connect or solder terminal, for separate wiring of the line connection, are also available.
These outlets are offered with light pipe options for status indication. They also mate with V-Lock latching cordsets designed to prevent unintentional disconnection from the power. Approvals include cURus, ENEC and CCC.
