High-Current Appliance Outlets Suit IT

Schurter’s series 4797 appliance outlets are rated up to 20 A at 250 Vac. The high current outlets consist of two versions for screw or snap-in mounting. The snap-in version was developed in response to customer demand for easier mounting and smaller fit versus screw mount types, which is especially important for gang mounting.

The series is available in seven variations to suit a variety of panel thicknesses ranging from 0.8 mm to 3 mm. Connections can be made with 6.3-mm x 0.8-mm quick-fit terminals or solder tabs. The body is made from flame-resistant thermoplastic UL94 V-0, while the live parts are made of copper alloy to protect against corrosion and to provide excellent conductivity.

The standard outlet is offered for protection class I (L / N / PE). A class II (L / N) type for use in medical equipment is available on request. Built according to IEC 60320-2-2 type J and type L, they are rated for 16 A at 250 Vac, 50 Hz according to ENEC and for 20 A at 125/250 Vac, 60 Hz according to cURus (USA & Canada).

The 4797 outlets are suitable for use in test and IT equipment according to IEC/EN 60950, providing a convenient solution for distributing power from racks to multiple pieces of equipment. They are also ideal for use in outlet strips used for power distribution in household, office and industrial environments. Pricing is $1.66 in 100 piece quantities.
