Protection against dirt particles and moisture is becoming increasingly important. With the product type 6080 and the associated V-Lock power cable, SCHURTER is launching an IP54 device connection that also meets high demands.

The SCHURTER 6080 is an IEC 60320 and IEC 60529 compatible appliance inlet. In combination with the dedicated power cord, an IP54 protection rating is achieved when plugged in. An IP54 connection provides protection against dust particles and is splash-proof.

Special sealing elements

The blue colour of the V-Lock cable socket already indicates that something is different here. The appliance inlet as well as the connector of the power cord have been equipped with special sealing elements to achieve a higher IP-Protection.

V-Lock Cord Retention

The device plug connection also has the industry proofed V-Lock cord retention system. Mechanical safety clips, which often must be designed for specific types, are no longer a necessity.

Application areas

Wherever dirt, dust particles or splash water may occur, the SCHURTER technology is the perfect choice. This may be the case in harsh working environments in industry. In the medical field, a higher IP protection rating is mandatory. This is simply due to the necessity of cleaning and disinfecting medical equipment on a regular basis, and even sterilising it if required. The food processing industry has very similar requirements.

IP54 family in planning

The product type 6080 will soon be followed by other products. SCHURTER will equip a complete family of device connections with this innovative technology.
