The broad product range suits perfectly for use in medical, measurement and test equipment as well as for other industrial electronic devices. The excellent image and the well-established brand name of SCHURTER mean successful cooperation with all partners.

FUSES AND FUSE-HOLDERS

This range contains fuse links and fuse-holders for appliances for rated currents from 0.25A up to 16A. The fuses are separated within resettable, non-resettable fuses and telecom fuses. Fuse-holders are available closed for front panel mounting and open or closed for PCB mounting.

Fuse links and fuse-holders are available for discrete as well as for SMD mounting style and are suitable packed for automated assembling.

CONNECTORS, POWER ENTRY MODULES AND EMC LINE FILTER

The assortment of connectors contains connectors and plugs and power entry modules according IEC 60320-1 for rated currents of 2.5A up to 25A @ 125VAC respectively 250VAC. The power entry modules are based on the mentioned connectors and enclose already wired components as switch, fuse-holders, voltage selectors and/or line filters.

The line filters support electro-magnetical compatibility (EMC) according IEC 60939. Line filters are also available for chassis mounting. They are designed for rated currents from 0.5A up to 30A at the mentioned voltage for AC and DC sources.

All mentioned product suits perfectly for appliances according IEC 60950 and meet the medical filter standards IEC 60601-1 respectively UL544.

CIRCUIT BREAKERS FOR EQUIPMENT

The thermal and magnetic hydraulic circuit breakers for equipment are designed as over current protection for appliance according IEC 60950. They are all resettable and available for one, two, three and even more poles. The hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers are less sensitive to environmental temperature than the thermic types. Additional accessory as under voltage protection modules, diverse actuators and IP56 covers are available.

VANDAL PROOF OR CUSTOMIZED INPUT SYSTEMS

The input systems contain switches, push buttons, vandal proof keypads, tactile input systems based on membranes and touch screens. The push buttons and the metallic keypads are specially designed for harsh environment. The membrane input systems are customer driven and can be offered together with the touch screens as complete input devices.

EMC PRODUCTS

The EMC product range contains line filters for three phase systems from 1A to 1,000A. A standard range will be available for common applications while specific design is offered upon requirement. The chokes and the pulse transformers support the power quality of different power supply within the same range. The control of semiconductor power bridges will be supported by the offered power stage driver modules to assure galvanic separated operation of control and power circuit.
