Ganged IEC outlets are arranged to accept V-Lock retaining cordsets

22 September 2020

To ensure safe operation of systems in data centers, information and communication technology, the power distribution architecture becomes a key facet of power quality design. Components with safety agency approvals ensure compliance in the end system, while the need for components that enable downsizing and speed of assembly are also key considerations. This is especially true for the power distribution architecture.

The 4751 outlet configurations are designed to address these considerations. They are also oriented to allow for compatibility with V-Lock retaining cord sets. The two, four and six packs are prewired between outlets for speed of assembly. Common terminals are solder 4.8 x 0.8 mm or quick connect 6.3 x 0.8 mm. The line terminal can also be independent with neutral and ground terminals prewired. Snap-in mounting is standard for 1.5 mm panels, with optional 1 or 3 mm on request. The panel cut-outs are keyed to ensure proper mounting and alignment for assembly.

The 4751 series outlets feature color options in black, grey or white for cluster distinction of multi-phases, for instance. Additionally, a new tamper resistant Blind Cover, series BC320, is added to SCHURTER’s extensive range of outlet accessories. The BC320 is designed to manage system loads, whereby individual outlets can be blocked for use. These protective covers are mounted onto the outlets in the power distribution unit, just like a cap. For safety reasons, the protective caps cannot be removed without a special tool/key.

The 4751 series outlets are certified by VDE and CCC for 10 A at 250 VAC. They are cURus approved for 15 A at 250 VAC.

SCHURTER offers a wide portfolio of internationally approved IEC appliance inlets and outlets, in single or multiples, with IDC terminals, integrated light pipe, high temp ratings, rewireable or molded cord sets and cord retention options. These solutions provide manufacturers of power distribution units with reliable components that increase functionality, streamline assembly and ultimately improve operational efficiency in data centers.
