Schurter’s Metal Line Switches Glow in Blue

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter’s stylish metal line switches are now available with blue illumination. The new colour option joins the existing yellow, red, green and bi-colour red/green options in point or ring illuminated versions.

The luminous switches are designed for use in applications where lighting conditions are low and indication is necessary to identify the switch actuation area. Customisation can be achieved to meet customers individual needs, including special finishes and legends. Pictures and/or text can be applied to stainless steel types. The hard-wearing laser-etched letters and symbols are resistant to abrasion and fading for a lifetime that exceeds that of the switch.

The Schurter Metal Line comprises a wide range of vandal-resistant metal switches, engineered in Germany for a high quality finish.  Metal Line products are available with Piezo electronics for long-life, protection against outdoor elements, high impact resistance and virtually indestructible wear.  Also available are switches with electro-mechanical actuators for applications requiring travel with the switching action. Mounting dimensions range from 16 to 30 mm with IK ratings from 02 to 07 for high impact resistance. IP ratings range from 40 to 67 for degree of sealing protection.

The blue illuminated metal line switches are at home in many applications including ticket terminals, parking garages, petrol stations, roadside call boxes, lifts, door controls, cashpoints, internet terminals, and information booths.

Schurter’s TF600 SMT Telecom Fuse Protects Tip and Ring Secondary Circuits

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter’s new TF600 non-resettable fuse assists manufacturers of telecommunications equipment in meeting power cross and lightning surge requirements outlined in North American standards Telcordia GR-1089, TIA-968-A (formerly FCC Part 68), and UL 60950, as well as the international standards ITU-T K.20 and IEC 60950. The fuse has a rated breaking capacity of 60A at 600 Volt AC, over a current range of 0.5 – 2 Amps.

The TF 600 is RoHS compliant according to Directive 2002/95/EC. Its low profile and small footprint conform to industry norms for size, placement and process compatibility. Its time-lag tripping characteristic provides reliable secondary protection of secondary circuits in a variety of telecom systems and networking equipment designated for use around the world. Typical applications are customer premises equipment (CPE) like telephones and modems, high-speed transmission equipment like ADSL modems and splitters and analog line cards (SLIC’s).

The TF 600 is built to UL 248-14 and carries UL/CSA recognition.  It also holds a “Free of CCC” confirmation for China. It is supplied either on tape (2000 pieces) or loose in a bag (100 pieces).

SCHURTER'S High Attenuation, High Quality Two Stage Filter Modules

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter’s IEC connector power entry modules are now available with a two stage line filter for high attenuation characteristics over a broad frequency range. The highly compact FKHD and FKID models consist of a C14 appliance inlet type according to IEC 60320-1 with a two pole line switch, fuse holder and filter.

The fuse holder offers one or two pole protection via 5 x 20mm fuse links. The fuse-links can only be replaced when the power cable is removed, ensuring a current free fuse replacement. The modules are available in a nickel-plated metal version as well as in a cost efficient aluminium version. All of the filters have the option of a medical version additionally to the standard filter for rated currents at 1, 2, 4, 6 and 10A. Schurter’s FKH and FKI modules offer the same options in a single stage filter

Schurter products are characterised by high quality, innovative design, with modules pre-wired as standard eliminating the time and expense of fitting link wires. A further advantage is the layout of the components, which allows a line interruption by the switch close to the power entrance, therefore producing no standby-losses within the filter components. The screw-on mounting offers a low mounting height.

The FK range is approved for 1-10 A 125/250 VAC, 50/60 Hz according to IEC/EN, resp. UL CSA. Furthermore they meet all requirements according to IEC/EN 60950. The modules are ideal for use in medical applications according to IEC 60601-1 as well as for general data communication or similar industrial applications according to IEC 60950. The two-stage version of the filter suits especially for applications as measurement and audio equipment, where an optimal signal-to-noise ratio is required.

SCHURTER Extends MSM Line to Include Switch with Larger Actuation Area

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter has expanded its popular stainless steel MSM series with the addition of a 30 mm diameter switch. The current product line is already available in 16, 19, and 22 mm mounting diameters. The new MSM30 offers the same robust characteristics as its smaller counterparts, only it has a larger, ergonomically designed, actuating area for superb tactile feel. Actuation force is 4.5 Newtons, and contact travel is only 1 millimeter with a fixed stop accompanied by a pleasant audible click. The MSM series provides maximum switching power over a voltage range of 5 V DC to 250 V AC and a current range of 0.1 – 10 amps. Switching action is single-pole, momentary with N.O. and N.C. contacts available.

Built for tough environments, the MSM carries a water-resistant rating of IP 67, making it ideal for use outdoors, or in equipment exposed to the liquid spills, drips, leaks or wash-downs. A shock resistant rating of IK 07 makes it ideal for use in environments where the switch can be subject to heavy use or impact. The switch can also operate under varying temperature conditions as low as -25 and as high as 85 C. A flat front construction of only 1.7 millimeters provides a nearly flush mounting to the panel surface, which makes it less conspicuous and therefore less likely to be knocked or battered from the side.

These new MSM30 is ideal for systems where a large actuating area is required for operation, such as information, security and vending systems. Wiring is via quick connect terminals.  Assembly includes pre-wiring of the contact module, which is then snapped onto the actuator housing.  Point and ring illuminated versions of the MSM are available for applications where optical status indications are desired, such as dark conditions or disability access systems.

The simple selector chart structure of the EMC short-form catalogue allows for comparison of the components attributes and specifications. Additional information on all of the Schurter range is available on http://www.schurter.com/, which, in keeping with Schurter’s open information policy contains approvals, lead-free roadmaps, CAD models, drawings, distributors links, and stock-checks, to ensure designing in Schurter is designing in simplicity.

The Power entry modules section of the catalogue contains interconnected multi-functional IEC connector components with fuse holders, voltage selectors and line filters. A separate section presents line filters for 1 and 3-phase systems, and is supported by extensive general information about line filter design and selection.

Linear, magnetically compensated, saturating and ground-wire chokes find their use in power electronics (frequency converters, stepper motor drives, ups-systems, power supplies etc.). They are within the range of 0.4 up to 50A and have an inductance range of 0.1 up to 60mH.

The pulse transformers section has been specially developed for the control of semiconductor devices in power electronics. Application possibilities include triggering Thyristors, Triacs, power transistors and IGBTs. The Power Stage Driver Module has been developed for driving power IGBT or MOSFET transistors in a safe, reliable and easy way.
