Power Connectors According to IEC 60320

Shurter power connectorSchurter introduces 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 16 A at 250 VAC, and according to UL / CSA for 20 A at 250 VAC. Pin temperature may reach a maximum of 155°C. 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 2.5 mm2 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 operate 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.
