Original Press Release:

IEC Appliance Outlet J with Integrated Light Pipes is Latest Addition to SCHURTER Range

SCHURTER introduces its new IEC appliance outlet, series 4797-5, with integrated light pipes. The new outlet compliments SCHURTER’s classic J outlet with solder or quick-connect terminals. It also broadens SCHURTER’s existing range of F outlets with light pipes. The F outlet is rated 10/15 Amp at 250 VAC according to IEC/UL and the newly added J outlet is rated 16/20 Amp at 250 VAC. The outlets provide a space and cost-saving solution for intelligent PDUs used in data centers and other multi-distributed power applications.

Today, PDUs often use LEDs mounted in between outlets to display a current status. This is not the most efficient approach in packing density, thus precious real-estate can be saved by using outlets with integrated light pipes. The control of the LEDs is freely configurable, wherein each state can be clearly and independently represented. An outlet could, for example, signal an outage with a red LED, or a critical power consumption pattern with a yellow LED. The 4797-5 can be equipped with up to four light pipes.

The 4797-5 is compatible with V-Lock or S-Lock cord sets for a cord retaining option with either vertical or horizontal mounted outlets. It features snap-in panel mounting for a panel thickness of 1.5 mm. Variations from 1.0 to 3.0 mm are also possible. Grey and white outlets are also available to differentiate between blocks or banks of outlets.

Pricing for the 4797-5 starts at $1.80 each for 500 pieces. Packaging is 50 pieces per box. Data sheet and additional information are at schurter.com, search 4797-5. For sales and product information, contact Cora Umlauf at (800) 848-2600 or by email at info@schurterinc.com.
