Tyco Electronics has added the CU series to its family of Corcom power entry modules. The new series includes smaller-sized versions of switched filtered and unfiltered power inlets, which are ideal for applications with panel space constraints, in particular systems designed for the popular 1U (1 ¾ inch) height equipment racks.
The CU series offers 15 filtered and eight unfiltered versions to cover a broad array of applications. Shrouded quick-connect terminals eliminate the need for soldered connections, which helps reduce installation time. The series allows higher system efficiency by contributing less heat – making it suitable for applications with power or cooling limitations.
The modules offer three different mounting styles: flush-mount, flange, and snap-in. Current ratings range from 1 to 15 Amps and the product is UL recognized, CSA certified and VDE approved. The 15 Amp versions tested by Underwriters Laboratories to U.S. and Canadian standards are VDE approved for a 10 Amp rating.
The CU series power entry modules are well-suited for consumer and computer electronics, telecommunication, data communication, and compact industrial applications.
