IEC Plug/Breaker Is Splash Proof

SCHURTER has fortified its DG11 IEC inlet and circuit breaker power entry module with IP Protection. The multi-mount power entry module offers an IEC plug with an integrated circuit breaker to meet the requirements of diverse applications. The DG11 power entry module is IP 67 rated, which prevents ingress of dust and jetting water.


The DG11 power entry module integrates an IEC C14/C18 with cord retention (V-Lock) inlet, and a two-pole TA35 circuit breaker, which provides the function of a switch and thermal overcurrent (overload) protection. Thermal overprotection can be achieved with a bimetal mechanism. The two-pole circuit breaker comes with one or two bimetals and has gradually rated currents between 0.05A to 20A. Also, it features IP67 rating via a water-resistant protective cover on top of the circuit breaker. IP40 rating is also available.
