SCHURTER recently expanded its portfolio of rewireable IEC cord connectors, series 4782 (C13, 70°C [158°F]) and 4781 (C15, 120°C [248°F]), to include gray and white versions in addition to black.
The added colors allow for distinguishing between multiphases in data centers. The white color option is also suited for medical applications in which a clinical cord and inlet coupling is aesthetically preferred.
The detachable cord connectors are particularly suited for small series builds with varying cable lengths and country-specific plugs that would otherwise require large order minimums. A protective cable guard with a diameter of 8.5 mm (0.33 inches) or 10 mm (0.39 inches) is preassembled at the factory. The screw terminals accept cables with cross-sections between a minimum of 3 x 0.75 mm2/18 AWG (0.82 mm2) and a maximum of 3 x 1.5 mm2/14 AWG (2.08 mm2).
SCHURTER added the 4782 and 4781 series to its range of rewireable cord connectors according to the new UL 60320 standard. They are safety-agency approved for the European, Chinese, Japanese, and North American markets for 10/15 A at 250 VAC. They use no halogens in the cable guard or any other plastic components.
