Santa Rosa, California, March 27th, 2023 – SCHURTER’s 6610-5 and 4710-5 IEC appliance outlets, Type F and J, are the optimal solution for data center PDUs, where status indication and packing density are critical. Their compact design allows for tight mounting in multiples and provides up to four LEDs for status indication.

The outlet series is designed to provide a space and cost savings approach to PDU strip assemblies where an indication is often used to signal the equipment technician regarding system status of one kind or another, for instance, power surges and sags. Precisely fitted light guides provide support for light pipes in one or all corners of the outlet. The operation of each of the LEDs, mounted on the PCB, is channeled to the enclosure surface to indicate status. The light pipes are ordered as an accessory to be inserted after the outlets have been mounted and wired. Outlets are offered in black, white, and grey for multiphase distinction.

IDC terminals are especially efficient, allowing several outlets to be wired quickly and reliably in a single process step. The phase contact (L) is a PCB terminal for connection of maximum power to each outlet. Quick connect or solder terminals are available on request. IDC terminal configuration supports wiring "along" or "cross" to the outlet pin axis. Selection depends on the design of the PDU and the arrangement of the outlets, vertically (along) or horizontally (cross) one behind the other, orienting the wires to the direction of the strip. IDC terminals accept solid insulated wires, sizes 14-10 AWG.

The outlet series are rated to IEC and UL 10/15 A at 250 VAC, Style F, and 16/20A at 250 VAC, Style J. The outlets are compatible with the V-Lock cord retention system. Snap in mounting is designed for panel thicknesses of 1.0 to 3.0 mm, 1.5 and 2.0 mm is standard. Link to 6610-5 and 4710-5 datasheets.
