Schurter EC12 power entry module expands series to include snap-in mounting

20 May 2022

Schurter expands its EC12 series with a version for snap-in mounting. The new variant is designed to save panel space otherwise consumed by a mounting flange, and also provides quick and easy, well-secured installation.

The compact EC12 with snap-in mounting has the same integrated features as the flange mount version: IEC C20 appliance inlet, high-performance single-stage filter and power switch — with or without

The EC12 filter series is available as a standard or medical M5/M80 version and is used in devices especially sensitive 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 filter options provide safety class X1 interference suppression capacitors for surge voltages of 4 kV between L and N, and Y1 for surge voltages of 8 kV. The series is also compatible with V-Lock cordsets. The EC12 series is certified for currents up to 16 A/250 V AC according to IEC and 20 A according to UL/CSA at 125/250 V AC and carries ENEC, CQC and cURus approvals.

Pricing for the EC12 starts at about $26.00 each in 100-piece quantities.
