SCHURTER DG11 and DG12 series Classic Power Entry Module with Circuit Breaker comes with and without mains filter features a first-of-its-kind ingress protection solution for IEC inlets, consisting of a seal gasket between the connector and mating V-Lock power cord. The blue colored latch of the V-Lock power cord and blue inlay of the appliance inlet indicate that the two have been equipped to provide an IP54 rating under load. Unit is screw mounted and rated IP67 between the power entry module and the panel. The compact and versatile modules are designed to combine several functions in a single component. These include a C14 or C18 appliance inlet, a recessed circuit breaker with 1- or 2-pole resettable overcurrent protection and 2-pole ON/OFF switch, a mains filter for standard or medical low leakage applications, and a newly integrated IP54 seal protection between inlet and latching power cord.
