- V-Lock cord retention

Schurter Series 6610-5: IEC Appliance outlet type F for Intelligent PDUs and UPSs

The new 10 A-appliance outlet, series 6610-5, offers integrated guides for light pipes. It features up to two light pipes, intended to channel light from LEDs placed on a printed circuit board to the outlet surface. Technicians are able to clearly see which systems are working properly, or respond to required maintenance adjustments. The controls of the LEDs are freely configurable, wherein each state can be represented clearly and independently. To avoid damage and to make the wiring easier, the light pipes

can be inserted after the installation and need to be ordered separately of the sockets in the PDU.

The use of IDC connectors is particularly efficient. Multiple sockets can be wired quickly in a single step. This highly efficient way of wiring saves considerable time and thus labor costs. The phase contact is available with an optional PCB, quick connect or solder terminal for an independent line supply and status indication. To ensure an even better optical feedback, SCHURTER provides the individual outlets in black, white and grey.

The 6610-5 series is available in two arrangement versions, so called "along" and "cross". Depending on the application and type of PDU, mounting several sockets vertically (cross) or horizontally (along) one behind the other can be achieved. The IDC terminals are then oriented accordingly for insulation displacement of the wires.

The new 6610-5 series offers a pull-out safety feature to prevent against unintentional removal of the power cord. Depending on the arrangement of the outlets in the strip - along or cross - the Schurter V-Lock or cord retention systems with side latches can be used. The snap-in mounting of the 6610-5 is designed for plate thicknesses from 0.8 to 3.0 mm. Additional versions to be launched in the near future will include 16 A appliance outlets.
