Evolution: Light pipe for status display
The new 10 A-appliance outlet, series 6610-5, offers integrated guides for light pipes. It features up to two light pipes, intended to channel light from LED's placed on a printed circuit board to the outlet surface. Technicians are able to clearly see which systems are working properly, or respond to required maintenance adjustments. The controls of the LEDs are freely configurable, wherein each state can be represented clearly and independently. To avoid damage and to make the wiring easier, the light pipes can be inserted after the installation in the PDU and need to be ordered seperately of the sockets.
The use of IDC connectors is particularly efficient. Multiple sockets can be wired quickly and in a single step. This highly efficient way of wiring saves considerable time and thus labor costs. The phase contact is available with an optional PCB, quick connect or solder terminal for independent line supply and status indication. To ensure an even better optical feedback, SCHURTER provides the individual outlets in black, white and grey.
The 6610-5 series is available in two arrangement versions, so called "along" and "cross". Depending on the application and type of PDU, mounting several sockets vertically (cross) or horizontally (along) one behind the other can be achieved. The IDC terminals are then oriented accordingly for insulation displacement of the wires.
The new 6610-5 series offers a pull-out safety feature to prevent against unintentional removal of the power cord. Depending on the arrangement of the outlets in the strip – along or cross – the SCHURTER V-Lock or cord retention systems with side latches can be used. The snap-in mounting of the 6610-5 is designed for plate thicknesses from 0.8 to 3.0 mm. Additional versions to be launched in the near future will include16 A appliance outlets.
