SCHURTER expands the successful EC12 appliance inlet filter family with new variants for snap-in mounting. This allows the compact power entry module to be mounted even faster and easier.
The EC12 filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high quality 1-stage filter and power switch.
New variants of the EC12 power entry modules feature two snap-in springs instead of the screw flange for even simpler and more efficient installation. Thanks to the high-quality springs, a tight-fitting installation is ensured with good electrical contacting of the mounting panel at the same time. The wide metal flange contacts the housing over a large surface area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding effect.
The EC12 filter series is available as a standard or medical version and is used in devices that require particularly high resistance to interference. This includes IT or telecom systems according to IEC 92368-1 and medical equipment according to IEC 60601-1.
Filter versions with increased surge withstand voltage capability are also available. These have interference suppression capacitors of safety class X1 for surge voltages of 4 kV between L and N and Y1 for surge voltages of 8 kV. The series is compatible with V-Lock cord retention device connection cables.
The EC12 series is certified for currents up to 16 A/250 VAC according to IEC and 20 A according to UL/CSA at 125/250 VAC. It comes with ENEC, CQC and cURus approvals.
