Fuseholders

Fuseholders offer not only anti-shock protection that prevents direct touching of the voltage-carrying elements, but also a reliable and robust way to attach the fuse in the system. These components ensure a safe and fast replacement of the damaged fuse. SCHURTER FSB1, FSB2 and FEU series fuseholderss are dedicated to high-end medical equipment requiring final certification. They are impact-resistant and provide a high level of anti-shock protection in the PC2 or PC3 class, according to the IEC 60601 norm. The products guarantee absolutely safe solutions, which are applied in diagnostic and therapeutic devices, including medical laboratory equipment, life-supporting and vital-monitoring devices.


IEC power connectors with filter

It happens that devices for medical applications work without network grounding. In this case, leakage current can be dangerous to the user. Therefore, the leakage current limit has been set, for the safe use of the device. The DD12 series of filters is suitable for use in such conditions. It is a combination of an IEC C14 connector with a 1- or 2-pole switch, a high-quality power line filter and a 1- or 2-pole fuse drawer. Connectors are available in both medical and standard versions, allowing them to be used even in devices that require increased resistance to interference.

Functionalities:

  • various mounting variants
  • a switch for high inrush current peak values
