Hylec Launches the New Debox SM40

New Debox SM40 fits inside 40mm ceiling apertures – the smallest in-line junction box on the market. Ideal for LED lighting installations; supplied complete with 4-pole terminal block; flame-retardant housing

Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components and enclosures, announces the launch of the new Debox SM40, the smallest 4-pole junction box available on the market, specifically designed to fit inside the smaller 40mm ceiling apertures of today’s ranges of ceiling downlights. Measuring only 80mm wide x 35mm deep and 25mm high – 50% smaller than the Debox S by cubic volume – Debox SM40 is the newest addition to Hylec’s very successful Debox family of in-line junction boxes for electrical contractors and electricians.

 

Debox SM40 saves electrical contractors time during installations, particularly on lighting projects. Despite its small size, the Debox SM40 offers generous cable management space internally and can be wired in seconds. Using Debox SM40 simply requires the installer to insert the cables into the 4-pole terminal block and tighten the terminal screws, lower the tool-less cable clamps and secure the lid with the supplied locking clip. The locking clip can only be opened with a tool, which complies with current regulations. Debox SM40 is supplied with a spare locking clip, so that should it need to be re-opened subsequent to initial fitting, it can be re-secured with the second locking clip. There are multiple fix-to-surface options, including using the detachable external fixing lugs found on either side of the Debox

Debox SM40 is supplied complete with all components, including a 4-pole terminal block suitable for round cables, maximum 24A. The housing is white thermoplastic, flame-retardant to UL94V-0, and Debox SM40 is also compliant with BS EN 60598-1 requirements (Glow Wire Test to 650degC.) and the EN 60670-22 Pull Test.

Schurter RC30 Rear Cover

Schurter Logo1.jpg

New Rear Cover Series for Schurter Power Entry Modules, Appliance Plugs and Sockets

• Silicone rubber for a better fit
• with high flame protection class UL94 V-0
• Temperature resistant up to 150 °C
• Halogen free and RoHS, China RoHS as well as REACH compliant

Schurter has a long tradition in the development of Power Entry Modules (PEM) with and without filters, appliance plugs and appliance sockets. The range of available models is equally wide. PEMs are space-saving, very convenient and extremely versatile. With the new halogen free protective rear covers of the RC320 series SCHURTER now launches another useful accessory.

The benefits of the versatile PEMs, Inlets and Outlets are apparent when you browse through the range of features: IEC appliance in-/outlet, with or without fuse, EMC filter, illuminated or non-illuminated power
switch, appliance circuit breaker, etc. etc. Almost every important device protection function can be accommodated in these compact modules.

Rear Covers RC320, Better Fit, High Flame Protection and Environmentally Friendly
The new RC320 rear protective covers are made of flame-retardant silicone rubber (flame class UL94 V0). This flexible and durable material ensures an excellent fit and is temperature resistant up to 150 °C. It is free of halogens and RoHS, CCC RoHS and REACH compliant.

Rear Protection
PEMs, appliance Inlets and Outlets are open to the rear. The new RC320 Rear Covers protect against unintentional contact with live terminals. In addition, they shelter the PEM against dust and other contaminants, which benefits the service life of the component.

Professional Internal Device Design
There is the approach just simply to use the best of the best. In high-end sectors, not only the exterior but also the internal design must meet high standards. The RC320 rear covers from SCHURTER are a welcome addition for professional internal device designs.

Schurter Rewireable IEC Appliance Inlet with V-Lock

Schurter Logo1.jpg

The IEC appliance inlet 4783 from Schurter is the first of its kind: for the first time it combines a reconnectable C13 appliance inlet with the proven V-Lock cord retention system. Available in black, white and grey for better differentiation – e.g. in 3-phase systems.

Ideal for Small Series Builds
Reconnectable appliance sockets are particularly suitable for small series builds. With these inlets you are free to choose the cable length and country-specific plugs.

V-Lock
Schurter already offers a wide range of rewireable IEC device connectors. New and unique to the 4783, is the integrated V-Lock cord retention system, which effectively prevents the cable from being pulled out unintentionally.

Assembly
A cable guard with a diameter of 8.5 mm or 10 mm is pre-assembled at the factory. The screw terminals accept cables with cross-sections between a minimum of 3 x 0.75 mm²/18 AWG (0.82 mm²) and a maximum of 3 x 1.5 mm²/14 AWG (2.08mm²).

Halogen-Free Construction
Schurter’s Type 4783 does not use halogens in the cable guard or any other plastic components.

Approvals
The 4783 appliance inlet has all approvals for the European, Chinese and North American markets. It is also already certified according to the new UL 60320 standard.

Schurter C20F Appliance Inlet with Filter

Schurter Logo1.jpg

• Variants with ground choke
• Highly resistant – fully potted
• Interrupts ground loops
• V-Lock cord retention

Schurter extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

 

Ground Choke
New variants of the C20F appliance inlet filters are equipped with a ground choke. The line filters have a second choke on the earth conductor in addition to the current-compensated choke on the pole and neutral conductor. The ground choke is located between the device plug and the filter output. Placing it directly at the mains input ensures that possible high-frequency interference currents on the earth conductor cannot bypass the filter via the housing. Medical filters in particular (no Y-capacitors) benefit from improved asymmetrical attenuation in the higher frequency range due to the ground choke.

Applications
The C20F filter series is available as standard or medical version and is used in devices that require a particularly high noise immunity. These include IT or telecom systems according to IEC 92368-1 and medical devices according to IEC 60601-1. The series is compatible with V-Lock device connection cables.

The C20F series is certified for currents up to 16 A / 250 VAC according to IEC standard and 20 A according to UL/CSA standard at 125/250 VAC. It provides ENEC, CQC and cURus approvals.
