Compact Power Entry Module for Protection Class II Equipment

Schurter expands its wide range of power entry modules to include versions, without ground pin, for use in Protection Class II double-insulated applications. The 5145 power entry module is already popular for use in Protection Class I equipment, due to its circuit breaker and EMC filter functions integrated into one compact package. The new Protection Class II version is perfectly suited for medical equipment used at home where the medical standard prescribes the use of Protection Class II design.

The 5145 Class II version is according to IEC 60320-1, style C18. It is particularly well suited for use in medical equipment according to the IEC standard 60601-1-11, which outlines additional safety measures specific to medical equipment intended for use in the home. There is increasing demand for such equipment as populations around the world age and healthcare costs continue to rise.
The EMC filter is available in medical and low leakage, M5, versions. This integrated filter at the power input provides highly effective interference suppression, which results in optimized electromagnetic compatibility. Current ratings range from 1-10 A at 250 VAC. Versions with quick-connect or solder terminals are available.
