Santa Rosa, California, May 19th, 2021 – 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. It 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 illumination. Alternatively, it features snap arms designed to ensure a tight fit as they mount to the panel simultaneously. This ensures a high quality electrical contact to the panel, which optimizes the filtering and shielding effect.
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 VAC according to IEC and 20 A according to UL/CSA at 125/250 VAC and carries ENEC, CQC and cURus approvals.
Pricing for the EC12 starts at about $26.00 each in 100-piece quantities. Link to EC12 Data Sheet. For sales and product information, contact Savannah Lee at (800) 848-2600 or by email at [email protected].
