Outlet for Power Distribution Units Streamlines Assembly

Feb. 13, 2009

New Appliance outlet is equipped with IDC terminals

SANTA ROSA, California, February 11, 2009 Schurter introduces the first of its kind appliance outlet, using IDC technology. Series 6610 is ideal for use in power distribution units and other equipment where multiple outlets are banked in series.

Unlike traditional outlets, which require wiring of individual quick connect or solder terminals, the 6610 with IDC technology allows wires to be bussed across the terminals, thereby connecting common terminals all at once. 

The 6610 comes with a protective back cover to prevent electrical shock, which also serves as a “wire press” to push the wires into the IDC terminals.  Terminals are arranged either along or across the connector pin axis for both horizontal and vertical mounting. The standard version accepts insulated solid wires with cross section 12 AWG / 2.5 mm2.  Versions with combination IDC and a quick-connect or solder terminal, for separate wiring of the line connection, are also available. The unit snaps in and is available in versions for 0.8 mm – 3.0 mm panels.

The 6610 appliance outlet F is according to IEC 60320. It is approved by cURus at 15 A
at 125/250 VAC and ENEC at 10A / 250VAC, and is qualified for applications in accordance with IEC/EN 60950. Pricing starts at about 96 cents each per 100 pieces.
