Light Pipe portfolio expanded

SCHURTER improves upon a classic product: the new 4797-5 series IEC outlets are available with integrated Light Pipes. An intelligent, space and cost-saving solution for PDUs used in data centers and other multi-distributed power applications.

The human need for information continues to expand at record pace, while continual advancements in information and communications technology (ICT), strive to keep pace with this demand. New data centers continually appear in the most unconventional of places to support this growing demand. These data centers are under constant pressure to improve upon efficiency and reliability under growing regulatory requirements to reduce energy use and cost. Meanwhile, the demand for reliable transmission with increased speed must keep pace. At the base of this modern day economic demand and supply phenomena is an intelligent, reliable power supply and – at the base of that – a simple connector. SCHURTER is pleased to introduce its IEC outlets with integrated Light Pipes, which bring a simple yet improved solution to intelligent power distribution.

Freely configurable status indication

Today, PDUs often use LEDs mounted in between outlets to display a current status. The high packing density of servers in modern data centers demands the same of power distribution units. With SCHURTER's appliance outlet, the integrated Light Pipes provide space and assembly cost savings over conventional strip designs. Service technicians are able to clearly see which systems are working properly, or respond to required maintenance adjustments. The triggering of the LEDs is freely configurable, wherein each state can be clearly and independently represented. An outlet could, for example, signal an outage with a red LED, or a critical power consumption pattern with a yellow LED.

Optionally the SCHURTER 4797-5 is available with up to four Light Pipes.

Cord retention

In order to prevent against unintentional removal of a power cord, the new sockets offer a pull-out safety device. Depending on the arrangement of the sockets in the bar – horizontally or vertically – the SCHURTER V-Lock or other cord retention systems with side latches can be used. Both systems are usable with the 4797-5 outlets.

The snap-in bracket is designed for front panel mount and can fit a panel thickness 1.5 mm. Optionally variants from 1.0 to 3.0 mm are also available.
