Waterproof push/pull appliance coupler from Schurter

Schurter is presenting the new waterproof IEC connector consisting of the appliance inlet type 4761 and the rewireable cord connector type 4762. With its high protection class IP 67 or IP 69K connected or unconnected with cover, this appliance coupler is suitable for supplying power to appliances used in harsh environments such as industrial, marine, laboratories or any type of outdoor appliances.

The push/pull locking system provides a strong reliable connection, yet at the same time ensures a break-away cable in the event of overdue stress. The blue shape and colour of the pull-out mechanism indicates the pull-out direction. A clear catch sound is heard upon the seated connection. The connector style is similar to the international standards of IEC and UL/CSA 60320, but is distinguished by a special arrangement of the contacts, so as not to interchange with conventional power cords. This ensures the maximum power applied, IP protection and the cord retention.

The connector can be temporarily submerged in water and can be cleaned with high-pressure hot water cleaners. Both components are very easy to terminate. The inlet 4761 is available with solder or quick connect terminals. The connector is equipped with conventional screw terminals, as commonly seen in rewireable connector designs. Thus, no special tools for wire assembly are necessary.

These appliance couplers are available in black and white. The dual components, appliance inlet and cord connector, can be ordered as complete sets, which simplifies the ordering processes and customer logistics. The inlet and connector are also available as individual components for separate inventorying. Accessory covers are available for both plug parts, providing a waterproof protection IP 67 in plugged state and IP 69K in an unplugged state. These protective covers also offer protection against pollutants, which can potentially contaminate the contacts.

Schurter's waterproof appliance coupler set is VDE and UL/CSA approved. The rated current is according to IEC 10A @ 250V AC, according to UL/CSA 15A @ 250V AC. The maximum operating temperature is +120degC. Quick connect terminal options for the inlet are 4.8 × 0.8mm, 6.3 × 0.8mm or solder. The cord connector can be assembled with cables from 6.0-10.0mm, maximum wire size acc. to IEC 1.0mm2, according to UL/CSA 14AWG (2.08mm2).

The approvals of these connectors according to IEC/UL 60320 simplify the process for the equipment manufacturer to obtain approval of their appliances, because many equipment standards with respect to the power supply refers to these component standards.
