Power Entry Module A Veritable Hotbed Of Versatility

SCHURTER describes the DG12 series as its most versatile power entry module to date. Extending its DG11 series to include a mains filter, the DG12 integrates an IEC inlet, circuit breaker, and mains filter, along with optional IP protection. Its compact design paired with a multitude of features, consolidates discrete power components into one space-saving unit suitable for a variety of applications.


The DG12/DG11 features a recessed two-pole ON/OFF rocker switch circuit breaker with one- or two-pole overcurrent protection. Various colors and markings for both illuminated and non-illuminated switches are available. Current ratings range from 0.05A to 15A. The IP67 unit features a circuit breaker with a factory mounted seal cover and frame with inlay gasket, designed to mount tightly to the front panel with sealed screws. Mounting options include snap-in, 1 to 3 mm; screw-mount, front or rear panel with top/bottom or side flange.
