Protection against dirt particles and moisture is becoming increasingly important. With the product type 6080 and the associated V-Lock power cable, SCHURTER is launching an IP54 device connection that also meets very high demands.
The newly developed SCHURTER 6080 is an IEC 60320 and IEC 60529 compatible appliance inlet. In combination with the dedicated power cord, an IP54 protection rating is achieved when plugged in. An IP54 connection provides excellent protection against dust particles and is splash-proof.
Special sealing elements
The blue color of the V-Lock cable socket already indicates that something is different here. The appliance inlet as well as the connector of the power cord have been equipped with special sealing elements to achieve a higher IP-Protection.
V-Lock Cord Retention
The new device plug connection also has the industry proofed V-Lock cord retention system. Mechanical safety clips, which often must be designed for specific types, are no longer a necessity.
Wherever dirt, dust particles or splash water may occur, the new SCHURTER technology is the perfect choice. This may be the case in harsh working environments in industry. In the medical field, a higher IP protection rating is mandatory. This is simply due to the necessity of cleaning and disinfecting medical equipment on a regular basis, and even sterilizing it if required. The food processing industry has very similar requirements.
IP54 family in planning
The product type 6080 will soon be followed by other products. SCHURTER will equip a complete family of device connections with this innovative technology.
