In power distribution strips for 3-phase systems, the individual phases are color-coded
For some SCHURTER device socket outlets for PDUs, the installation of light pipes is possible.
The light pipes installed in the outlet are designed to channel light coming from LEDs mounted on a printed circuit board to the surface of the outlet. Each outlet generally has its own circuitry and, depending on the complexity of the monitoring system, may require several types of indicating functions. The outlets are capable of providing up to four light pipes, one in each of the four corners of the connector. The side of the outlet with the ground pin provides extra space around the two corners, allowing for the most prominent and thus popular position.
In addition, there is no need for separately installed optical fibers or LEDs which reduces costs.
The V-Lock cord retention system can be plugged in to IEC 60320 at 10A and 16A.
With V-Lock, the power connector is equipped with a pin that interlocks with a special notch in the inlet on the power cord and thus reliably prevents the cord from being pulled out unintentionally. The advantage of this scheme is that no clamping system specific to a unit’s power inlet or retaining bracket must be adapted and attached. The lock is released by pressing a finger on the disengaging lever. This lever is easily identified due to its bright yellow colour, a feature that also distinguishes this scheme from conventional pluggable power supply systems.
The V-Lock cord retention system prevents unintentional pulling out or loosening of the power cord in a simple way.
High availability and reliability are essential in our business. In SCHURTER, we have a long-term partner, on which we can rely.

IDC plug connectors are so-called insulation displacement connections. The insulated conductor is pressed into the insulation clamp without prior confection. The insulation is cut at the terminal and the electrical connection is ensured by means of the clamping connection to the wire. For a perfect connection the conductor cross-sections from the data sheet have to be taken into account accordingly.
IDC connectors have proven their worth in many applications (e.g., power distribution units). Due to this connection technology, the wiring effort is significantly reduced and the contacting is very reliable.
