Schurter 5124 Series Combines IEC C14 Inlet & Mains Filter

December 15, 2023

IEC C14 Appliance Inlet with High-Performance Filter

  • Very High Attenuation
  • Compact DSesign
  • Metal Flange for Optimal Shielding
  • V-Lock Cord Retaining

For applications that require particularly high interference immunity, Schurter is launching the new high-performance filters of the 5124 series. With identical dimensions to the proven 5120 and 5123 series, both symmetrical and asymmetrical interference signals can be attenuated even better with the 5124 series, thanks to the use of high-performance components.

The 5124 series combines an IEC C14 appliance inlet with a high-performance mains filter. Thanks to a wide metal flange, the housing makes contact over a large area, which guarantees an optimal filter and shielding effect.

High-Performance Filter:
The exclusive chokes with high-permeable toroidal cores of the 5124 series have an inductance that is many times higher than that of the standard 5120 series. This results in an attenuation of asymmetrical interference signals that is around 10 dB higher. Massively enlarged X-capacitors help gainst symmetrical interference. Despite significantly larger components, the dimensions of the 5124 predecessor’s series have been retained.

Identical Dimensions
The 5124 series is available in standard or medical versions. It makes sense to use it where a particularly high attenuation is necessary and the filter effect of a 5120 or even 5123 series is no longer sufficient. Thanks to identical dimensions, the optimal series can be selected - depending on the interference level - without any design changes. The appliance filters are, of course, equipped with the well-proven V-Lock cord retention system.

Performance and Approvals
The 5124 series is certified for currents up to 10 A/250 VAC according to IEC and 15 A according to UL/CSA at 125/250 VAC. It features ENEC, CQC as well as cURus approvals.

Schurter Green Line Products

September 14, 2023

Types: 6100-3, 6100-4, 6102-3, 6102-5, 6600-3, 6600-4

  • High-Quality products made from bio-based plastic
  • up to 68% CO2 reduction
  • IEC 60320 10A/250VAC in-/outlets

Sustainability is no longer a trend, but the order of the day. Wherever we can reduce our carbon footprint, we should do so. For this reason, Schurter introduces the new Green Line products. In a first step, these are high-quality products made from bio-based plastics that are made from plant-based raw materials.

The Schurter products 6100-3, 6100-4, 6102-3, 6102-5, 6600-3 and 6600-4, which are already established on the market, are IEC 60320 compatible appliance connectors which can now also be obtained made of bio-based plastics.

Green Line Products:
"Green Line" is the product collection of Schurter components with the focus on reducing today's CO2 footprint and becoming less dependent on fossil raw materials.

Bio-Based Plastics:
The environmentally friendly alternative to the fossil-based plastics that are widespread today are plastics that are made from plant-based raw materials. Plant based raw materials have a CO2-neutral footprint over the entire life cycle, which leads to a significant reduction in the CO2 emissions and thus of the products. In addition, bio-based plastics often have a lower density than fossil plastics, resulting in lower material consumption.

Green Line Family in Planning:
Further products will soon follow with the already implemented IEC 60320 appliance connectors. Schurter will offer a complete family of products with a significantly reduced carbon footprint.
